Allie 22.1 12 Randorn is the father of two sons, [[Sabre>>Sabre]] his youngest and his eldest son (unnamed) that died in battle. He later on adopted [[Krystal>>Krystal]] from the [[Fox Tribe>>Main.World.Bestiary.Randorn.Fox Tribe.WebHome]]. He's aged 65 years old approximately, wise and loves to teach magic skills to others. In the game, he's very weak after Scales attacked and he is stuck in [[Warlock Mountain>>Main.World.Bestiary.Randorn.Warlock Mountain.WebHome]]. The player will visit him when returning with a [[spirit>>Main.World.Bestiary.Randorn.spirit.WebHome]].

15
Allie 22.1 16 Randorn was the leader of the Wolven armies and was able to win considerable battles aggainst the [[Vixon Trible>>Main.World.Bestiary.Randorn.Fox Tribe.WebHome]]. One faiteful battle took the life of his eldest son and filled with grief, Randorn left his tribe to live alone.
Blizzarderful 20.1 17 \\The next day, he searched in Northwood Forest for magical roots and fumble across a [[Vixen camp>>doc:Main.Game-History.Star-Fox-Adventures.WebHome]]. His blood boiled and infested of a new rage he unleashed a terrible fury on the Vixen until they were all dead. Feeling guilty afterward he gave each and everyone a proper burial.
18 \\He remarked tracks on the ground, they lead him to [[a young Vixen>>Krystal]], afraid now orphan. He decided to raise her as his own and names her [[Krystal>>Krystal]]. At the age of twelve, he made her a staff out of the most precious materials. Together they went on many expeditions and during one of these they stumbled on an Ancient Ruin. 
Allie 22.1 19 \\Randorn entered alone and found an object that activated an hologram, the King of the Earthwalkers appeared and asked for help on his world [[Dinosaur Planet>>Main.World.Bestiary.Randorn.Dinosaur Planet.WebHome]]. Randorn ordered [[Krystal>>Krystal]] to find [[Sabre>>Sabre]] and join him there and he jumped into the vortex to the distant planet.

Randown has roamed the world the ten long years since the elder of his two sons was kille, but has now come to terms with the grief and learned to control the rage. His reunion with the son he left behind will come about sooner than he thinks, as the old wizard finds himself in way over his head...//

35 The characters' biographies were leaked (with other promotional material such as official renders, condensed story and gameplay footage) [[on the website RareThief in September 2012.>>https://rarethief.com/dinosaur-planet/||rel="noopener noreferrer" target="_blank"]] All bios are dated for the year 2000.
36 \\It’s worth mentioning though, not all character’s information and trivia are present [[in the December 1, 2000 prototype.>>https://archive.org/details/dino_20210220||rel="noopener noreferrer" target="_blank"]] These were probably written pretty early on the development of the game to summarize each character but were not really changed after the game’s story underwent many changes and evolutions. (i.e : //Krystal backstory not being mentioned except that she was adopted by Randorn, or Krystal’s crush on Sabre even though they are siblings.//)

67 * //What does Randorn want to do when Dinosaur Planet has been saved?//
68 The old wizard would like to live his retirement watching over [[Sabre>>Sabre]] and [[Krystal>>Krystal]], as they lead the mighty Wolven tribe into a new era of peace... and good soak in the tub wouldn't hurt either!
69
70 * //Personality//
Allie 22.1 71 A great leader, master of magic and a skilled warrior! These are all descriptions that have been given to Randorn. His weakness is his family. The death of his eldest son unleashed the dark side of his nature and if you ask the [[Vixen>>Main.World.Bestiary.Randorn.Fox Tribe.WebHome]] to describe him, they would say he was the butcher of the innocent! He holds a dark secret, which if[[ Krystal>>Krystal]] ever discovers, she would kill him!

75 This is interesting because, in the voicelines found in the game there is a moment where Randorn tries to tell the truth to Krystal about her parents' death but he's stopped by her because she only remembers him and doens't want to know. 'There is only you.'

Blizzarderful 17.1 78 * //Role within the game//
Allie 22.1 79 During the course of the game Randorn will reside in [[Warlock Mountain>>Main.World.Bestiary.Randorn.Warlock Mountain.WebHome]]. The player will visit him every time they return to the mountain with [[a spirit>>doc:Main.Game-History.Star-Fox-Adventures.WebHome]]. The old wizard is very knowledgeable and will be an invaluable guide for the player as they journey through the adventure. He will also give out spare magic item of Magic Energy if the player is running out.

88 This is a section of [[Nick Southam>>https://www.artstation.com/nicksoutham]]'s piece on his artstation. In this piece, we can see a younger wizard and adopted [[Krystal>>Krystal]].
89 Randorn sports a lot more stuff (A huge backpack), travelling stick and coat compared to his model in-game. Of course, this coudl also be due that Randorn at that time was travelling a lot and his in-game model reflects a more casual outfit.
