In the miniseries, Doral appears as a public relations worker for the abortive Battlestar Galactica museum. In the episode "Litmus", another copy of Doral sneaks on board the Galactica and detonates an explosive. This event prompts the fleet-wide announcement that Cylons can have a human appearance. He was revealed to be the 5th model in the episode "Downloaded".

During the Occupation of New Caprica, the Fives seem to be one of the most anti-human and aggressive models. As a series, the Fives seem to specialise in public relations and control, using large scale events and media manipulation to their advantage.

Number Fives are played by Matthew Bennett
