Gametitle-VBThe following is based on Van Buren and has not been confirmed by canon sources.

Human beings seem random, they're not, they're held together by the same sort of laws. I keep thinking there's one theory that ties it all together, but I don't know what.

— Paul

Paul is one of the scientists living at the Boulder Dome in 2253.


Paul is a Mentats addict that specializes in physics and programming. He is extremely energetic, and willing to work as long as it takes, even 36 hours straight. Paul has never dreamed, has no concept of blame, never takes anything personally, and has fallen in love with one of the sleepers. He is very shy, and tries to sneak away from social situations.
