Doc (ドク Doku) is one of the playable characters in Golden Axe: The Duel.


The island of Miribar is a unique place: its ports stocked with goods and animals from distant lands, its college healers the best in the provinces. But when the man calling himself "Doc" resigned from his position at the school to seek the Golden Axe, the island folk were stunned. A healing man who fights? No one had ever quit the college before.

Doc has promised to bring the Golden Axe back to the province. This, to say the least, has caused mixed feelings. Why welcome back a man who broke his vows, even if he returns with the legendary axe?

"Do you have to go? You've protected us from so many problems for so long."
"Yes, and the cause of those problems is now destroyed, I must accomplish my true mission."

"For so long now I have treated those with sickness, but was never able to destroy the disease itself. With the axe, I can now cure all sickness for all time."
"But Doc, must you leave us? You have kept us safe and healthy for so long!"
"Yes. My job here is done. There are others who will need the healing powers of the Golden Axe."


In time, the story of a man who worked miracles reaches the outlying countries.
"There is a man, who is a doctor and a warrior. No one knows about him; only that his name is Doc."

In time, the healer and warrior known as Doc became famous throughout the land. Never again would an innocent die from disease or evil deeds.
