Dr. Dranzel's Spectacular Traveling Troupe is a group of musicians that travels Tal'Dorei. Before joining Vox Machina, Scanlan was a member.

Vox Machina met the troupe in "A Musician's Nostalgia" (1x37) at the Diamond Nest Tavern in Emon, where they had been performing for Winter’s Crest.

Side Business

As well as pickpocketing the crowd during performances, Dr. Dranzel sought to break into (and rob) a house in Emon's Cloudtop District. He convinced Vox Machina to do so on his behalf in "Echoes of the Past" (1x38).


The cast sometimes refer to Dr. Dranzel as "Dr. Dra" as a parody of real-life artist Dr. Dre.
