Creator / Paul Dobson

Paul Dobson, of the brothers Dobson (himself, Michael, and Brian), is an accomplished Canadian voice actor, one of the many who work with The Ocean Group, based in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. Paul is frequently cast in one of two roles: a brilliantly cunning, evil villain, or a thuggish strong guy. He also plays characters that provide some sense of comic relief, usually a minion of some kind of relatively small size like Myoga on InuYasha.

Arguably, Paul's most notable role as a villainous character would be Naraku from InuYasha, with the manipulative Sideways from Transformers: Armada and the vicious dark-hunter Nidhiki from BIONICLE 2: Legends of Metru Nui as close seconds. As the tough guy, he is recognized as the elder Enzo Matrix from ReBoot, and the unstoppable Juggernaut (Bitch) from X-Men: Evolution. His prominent comedic roles are Myoga from InuYasha, and Howdy from Hamtaro, as well as Happosai from Ranma . He commonly acts alongside his brothers, such as during the hit Bionicle movies B2 and B3, in which he also played Toa Whenua (a strong-guy character) (and the above mentioned Nidhiki's partner Krekka is voiced by Michael Dobson), as well as during Ranma and Hamtaro. He played Doctor Doom in Fantastic Four: World's Greatest Heroes as well as Marvel vs. Capcom 3 (where he also voices Shuma-Gorath), along with Graham Aker in Mobile Suit Gundam 00, which aired on Sci Fi. He does the voice of Zarbon in the original dub of Dragon Ball Z. He voices the main villain Moo in the overlooked anime, Monster Rancher, secondary antagonist Chiros in Kong: The Animated Series, and the E.O. Captain who serves as antagonist of the first two episodes of Black Lagoon. He also plays a number of roles in Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War: most notably, he is the primary voice actor of Captain Gabriel Angelos, and provided the first voice of Eliphas the Inheritor, as well as the voice of General Sturnn.

His Californian counterparts are Crispin Freeman, Michael McConnohie and Keith Silverstein, and his Texan counterparts are J. Michael Tatum, Mike McFarland and Kent Williams. Also is the Canadian counterpart to Daisuke Ono, Yoshimasa Hosoya and Joji Nakata.
