Dorian Jakob Brandt (born 3 January 1976) is a Teuton-born Cygnian statesman and lawyer. Brandt has been Chancellor of Cygnia since 2015, and is a member of the Democratic Labour Party. He previously served as a Senator for his home state of South Gascoyne. Brandt is the first foreign-born Chancellor in Cygnian history.

Born in the Teutonic capital of Sankt Georgburg, Brandt and his family migrated to Cygnia when he was three years old. He is a graduate of the University of South Gascoyne and the Imperial Law School at the Cygnian Imperial University. After earning his law degree in 2000, he became a civil rights attorney for 4 years before leaving the bar to enter politics. He successfully stood for election to the South Gascoyne Legislative Assembly, representing the 6th State District. He thereafter moved to the national level, securing a seat in the Imperial Senate as one of the 12 Senators from South Gascoyne. Brandt went on to become the Imperial Secretary for Education. As the Secretary for Education, Brandt was responsible for revamping the education system in 2011 and he successfully petitioned then-Chancellor Thomas F. Holt to divert significantly more funding into Cygnia's schools. By the time Brandt announced his candidacy for the Democratic Labour nomination for Chancellor in late 2013, he had left the education sector in a much better state than when he first became Secretary.

Brandt began his cancellarial campaign in 2013 and, after a close primary campaign against Alice Howe in 2014, he won sufficient votes in the DLP primaries to receive the Democratic Labour nomination. He then defeated National Unity nominee Matthias Trent by a landslide in the cancellarial election, and was inaugurated as Chancellor on 6 February 2015. He entered office with approval ratings of 72%, more than any Chancellor since Felix Colgan in 1905.
