Welcome to Pauolo's Den.
Paul's Life in RaptureEdit
Before the fall of Rapture, Paul worked for Rapture Central Computing as an engineer assigned to the regulation of the Thinker's database, literally checking its memory all day long. When the company's co-founder Mr. Porter began to "feed" his creation with recordings of his deceased wife, Paul was asked to help him in archiving each recording inside the supercomputer's mainframe. As the city fell in the Civil War and Porter was incarcerated, he was kicked out of Minerva's Den by the remaining founder and owner of the place,Wahl, for being too close to Porter.
With nothing to do except avoiding the raging street fights, he started to collect every audio diary and records he could find, hoping it would help him to tell the tragic story of this city after the end of the war.
In 1960, he tried to escape via a contraband submarine hidden in Port Neptune, but discovered it was destroyed before his arrival. Learning Ryan's death over the PM from Dr. Lamb, he tried another escape, but resigned when he saw a bathysphere shot down by torpedoes. He had no other option but to stay indefinitely in Rapture and went to achieve his quest of recording Rapture's past glory and downfall, and waited for the odds to be in his favor.
In 1968 he was still alive, hiding in the devastated Mercury Suites. He finally found an opportunity to regain the surface with a still operational fishing submarine when Sofia Lamb's reign over Rapture ended. He then made contact with the other survivors who made it to the surface before him, in order to decide whether they should reveal Rapture to the world or simply hide it and avoid the tragedy to repeat.
- "Sometimes, when I walk into my office, I get the impression that I'm walking among the ruins of a lost civilization. Not because of the reigning disorder, but because it all seems to be the remains of that civilized person that I used to be."

- "Sure you hear it in Rapture. One of the business types asked me, "Why don't you splice white? Get ahead!" Well, that's some idiocy! I told him, "First of all I AM ahead. Second, in Rapture it's your WORK that's supposed to matter, not your skin!" Too bad for some folks you can't splice in common sense."
- ―Charles Milton Porter
