Paul Dobson, of the Dobson brothers (himself, Michael, and Brian), (born Paul William Dobson on December 7, 1963) is an accomplished voice actor. Originally from England, he now works 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 a flea, usually a minion of some kind of relatively small size like Myoga on InuYasha.

Various other roles include Myoga and Naraku from InuYasha, the manipulative Sideways from Transformers: Armada and the vicious dark hunter Nidhiki from Bionicle 2: Legends of Metru Nui. As the tough guy, he is recognized as the elder Enzo Matrix from ReBoot, and the unstoppable Juggernaut from X-Men: Evolution. He plays Howdy from Hamtaro, a child-friendly show, as well as Happosai from Ranma ½. He commonly acts alongside his brothers such as in Hamtaro and Bionicle. His most recent roles include Doctor Doom in Fantastic Four animated series and Graham Aker in Gundam 00 which broadcasts on SyFy. Behindthevoiceactors.com named him best male supporting vocal performance in an anime television series/ova in their 2012 anime dub awards for his performance as Naraku in InuYasha: The Final Act.[1]
