One of the most sophisticated, cunning, loving and powerful women of Llanview, Dorian Lord has been rocking the town with her conniving schemes since 1973! After overcoming an abusive upbringing, she went on to become a successful doctor, built a financial empire and fought her battle against breast cancer.
After the death of Victor Lord, Dorian became his widow and continued to live and love the Llanfair mansion. It wasn't until after her remarriage to Herb Callison that Dorian was made aware of a clause in Victor's will stating that once Dorian remarried, the mansion would go to his daughter Victoria! This would mark the beginning of Dorian's hatred for Viki, which continues to be present to this day!
For years, Viki blamed and accused Dorian of killing her father. Through the brutal arguments and schemes to make the other pay, Dorian proved her innocence after it was revealed that Victoria had an identity disorder and finally faced the truth that one of her 'alters' killed the great and powerful Victor Lord! Throughout the years, Dorian lived to seek revenge on Viki. She once seduced Viki's youngest son Joey and had a hot affair with him for months!
Dorian later found the love of her life in Mel Hayes. It was Mel who made Dorian face her past and admit that she was abused by her evil mother Sonya and witnessed her mother murdering her father! Her family problems would come full circle when Dorian came upon her mother trying to harm her daughter Cassie - Dorian was able to protect her daughter from Sonya's clutches but in turn ended up killing her mother! After a bitter argument with Mel, Dorian tried to stop him as he was headed out on a business trip with Viki. However, it was too late and Mel met a tragic death when his plane crashed. Finding out that Mel took Viki's seat on an earlier flight fueled her hatred toward Viki!
While setting out into the night in search of Mel's spirit, Dorian hit Viki's daughter Jessica and caused her to lose the baby she was carrying. Months later, Jessica turned around and terrorized Dorian into thinking she was going crazy!
Dorian was reunited with Adriana, the daughter she had with mob boss Manuel Santi. Fearing for her daughter's life, Dorian allowed her to be raised by a family in Puerto Rico. With her daughter back home, Dorian has tended to be a bit overbearing and controlling of her life. Not approving of Adriana's boyfriend Rex Balsom, Dorian hired Bruce Bartlett to stalk her daughter and make it look as though Rex was doing it! However, as most of her plans, this one, too, backfired and Dorian almost lost Adriana after the crazed man kidnapped her - but ended up losing her anyway when Andriana moved to Paris after realizing that her marriage to Rex wouldn't work, even with Dorian's meddling help!
Although she found love in Clint Buchanan, Dorian ended up taking over Buchanan Enterprises as payback for Clint leaving her for Nora Hanen! During this time, she also held her vengeance toward Viki Davidson close and interfered in her relationship with Charlie Balsom by forcing him to drink again! However, after Dorian was faced with losing Langston Wilde, a girl she took under her wing and planned to adopt, Dorian relinquished the company back to Clint for the sake of love.
When Dorian found out that David was the real Buchanan heir, she tricked David into marrying her but later had her marriage annulled and concentrated on helping the family deal with the fact that Starr's baby was still alive. Just when things calmed down a bit, Dorian paid Ross Rayburn to prevent Blair from breaking up Todd and Tea's wedding - in an attempt to keep Blair from going back to Todd.
Dorian got in thick with Mayor Lowell and inadvertently ratted Cole Thornhart out as being undercover - never realizing that Lowell was behind the drug ring. However, once the truth came out, Dorian threw in her hat to become the next mayor of Llanview, ran against Viki Banks and became mayor after Viki forfeited the position.
David and Dorian admitted their love and were set to remarry. However, Clint had David thrown in a Moroccan prison and let Dorian believe that David left her at the altar. It wasn't until later the truth came out that Clint had kidnapped David. David returned and professed his love, and he and Dorian were married.
In August 2011, Dorian was offered a senate seat in Washington, D.C. She accepted, gave up her job as Mayor of Llanview and left town with David.
Dorian means well but her interference has caused her daughters and nieces much irritation! However, if there's any revenge to be had in Llanview, Dorian's the woman to go to for advice!

At the Man Of The Year Gala at Shelter, Nikki complains to Rama about her lack of tips. When Dorian arrives, Rama hides behind Nikki. Carl Peterson joins Dorian and comments on the self-portrait she donated. Jo and David appear with their cameraman. Dorian introduces Carl to her soon-to-be ex-husband then trashes Rama. Viki arrives outside, late, and apologizes to Diego for Clint punching him. When Viki enters the gala, she tells Jeffrey and Destiny how lovely they look. Bo and Nora watch and hope Matthew's okay with Jeffrey and Destiny being together. They can't deny how they hoped one day Matthew and Destiny would reunite. Viki joins Natalie, where they discuss Clint and pray he stays away from the gala. Viki then takes Carl away from Dorian to meet Bo. Blair privately confesses to Dorian that she has no idea where Jack is tonight. Arturo and Dani appear. Tea spots them and orders Dani over. Dani claims Arturo is Brianna's uncle, but Tea is clearly upset by her daughter's date and storms off. Michelle appears and argues with Dani over Matthew and the fact that they're wearing the same dress. Arturo takes Dani away, and Michelle cries on Matthew's shoulder about how mean Dani is to her. Matthew races over to Dani, orders her to stay away from Michelle then goes to Tea and reveals that Arturo isn't Brianna's uncle. He was her sugar daddy. Tea stomps over to Dani and Arturo and demands he get his hands off her daughter. As they argue, the gala is called to order. Viki takes the podium and begins with the auction of Dorian's self-portrait. Dorian's embarrassed when no one starts the bidding. Carl notices, bids $100,000, and wins. At the bar, Nikki gets catty with Natalie and reveals that Cutter has been having sex with her for months. When Cutter joins Natalie, she seethes about what Nikki said. Nikki spills a drink on Natalie.
As Carl takes the stage at the gala, Clint appears outside and tries to make amends with Diego. Back inside, everyone listens with emotion as Carl toasts to those who have given them their freedom in our nation. As Blair cries, Tea whispers, "He'll be back." As Bo takes the stage to accept the Man Of The Year award from Viki, Clint appears. He pushes Bo off the stage, takes the award and says, "From the bottom of my heart, screw all of you."
Viki lets Dorian see the video at the Banner after telling her Clint didn’t back down. She is stunned that Dorian wants her to post it. Natalie, however, doesn't want her to post it.
At the mansion, Jo thanks Dorian for agreeing to tell her side of the story.
Outside Shelter, Tea appears with Dean, Cutter and Natalie arrive, and Bo and Nora enter. Natalie knows that Clint isn't happy and asks Bo if he’s heard from him. Inside, Tea asks Blair how she's holding up. Nora asks where Todd is. Blair lies as Tea and Dean head for the bar. David introduces Jo to everyone. Back outside, Dani tries to calm herself by telling Arturo her mom is inside. Jeffrey and Destiny arrive moments later as does Carl. Carl meets everyone as Michelle and Matthew approach. Dani and Michelle see they have the same dress on. All of them walk inside except Carl who stays to greet Dorian.
