Forgive me, I'm a fanfiction author.
On that note, I think it's about time I updated my own profile a bit. Partly because I think I got a bit confused between writing what my character is like, and what I'm
(pronounced "Paul dot Power". Think of the "dot" like a "Von" or a "Mc")

2D-era Nuke goggles, pencil behind ear/inside goggle band/strapped on with velcro, you decide. Some draw him looking like the peculiar way I draw worms, some draw him with a beard, some draw him with a labcoat: these are optional extras.
stereotypical worm of science, particularly chemistry. Cheerful and usually benevolent
, but somewhat naive
and prone to ignore ethical issues in the pursuit of science
, and prone to peppering his speech with phrases like "Great Scott!"s and "My word!", resulting in several comparisons with the Doc from the Back to the Future
series. However, he can and will become sarcastic and scathing
if confronted by large amounts of stupidity, and he is sometimes prone to making bathetic statements
for laughs. Paul is no great shakes physically and he will try to avoid fights. If forced to fight he will fight with brains over brawn.
A worm without a hint
of a dark, tragic past, Paul has a long career in the field of "barely understandable gibberish". A passion for insane sciency type stuff has seen him become a world leader in developing weapons of mass inflammable skincare.
Weapon of Choice:
It's baby lotion. It's inflammable. It's based on a product made by Johnson & Johnson. It is, in short, Inflammable Johnson's Baby Lotion.
Science, maths, waffling on about crazy stuff, tea, cricket.
People trying to take over the world, rules that appear to serve no purpose, stupidity.
