Dortin and Volkan are often viewed as comic relief throughout the series. Volkan is the one with the plans the very bad plans that is. He hates Orphen whom he refers to as quotthe black wizardquot and his companions and always finds a way to ruin whatever they had in mind.He is also very annoying to Orphen. It is his fault that Orphen often must use his magic on them to make them go away them being him and Dortin. Volkan wants power and money. Any scheme he has in mind has the end result being one of the two. None of his schemes ever work however. He bosses Dortin around a lot but in a very comical way. from Wikipedia
