In Need to Know (episode), it is revealed that Dorneget is gay. It is also revealed that like Nikki Jardine, Dorneget uses tissues to stop himself from touching door handles which implies that he might have OCD.

He even helped the team attempt to arrest Harper Dearing and although they weren't successful, they managed to arrest Vincent Maple, the President of Dearing's company who was revealed to have been embezzling funds from the company.
