Character Bio

Paul Ballard photo
Paul Ballard is an FBI special agent assigned to the Dollhouse case at the onset of the series; most in the Bureau view the case as a joke, but he makes discovering and rescuing Caroline/Echo an obsession. The Dollhouse assigns active November to spy on him by becoming his girlfriend, Mellie. After breaking into the Dollhouse, he works for them under the condition that November is released, and later takes the role of Echo's handler. The two of them vow to set the Actives free. When Echo is left out on the streets, Paul finds her and helps conceal her from the Dollhouse for three months while she develops a full self-awareness. She becomes romantically and sexually attracted to him, but he abstains from sex with her.

The two re-enter the Dollhouse to continue their crusade. They later form an alliance with Boyd and Topher, but Paul is wiped and left braindead by Alpha. Topher is able to partially restore Ballard by converting him into an Active, removing one brain function, and imprinting him with the scan Alpha took. However in doing so, it was necessary for Paul's feelings of love toward Echo to be erased. In the final episode of Dollhouse set ten years in the future, Paul is killed in combat, and his memories and personality are imprinted into Echo.
