Paul Bowman was a wealthy British man in The Lost World: Jurassic Park. He had a daughter named Cathy and a wife named Deirdre. He owns a yacht with a fairly large crew.

He is based off the middle class character Mike Bowman in the first Jurassic Park novel.

Story of his life Edit

Paul Bowman took his family on a yacht cruise to the Costa Rican offshore island in May 1997. Unfortunately and unknowingly they landed on Isla Sorna for a beach picnic.

While Paul was reading the paper his daughter Cathy was attacked by Compsognathuses. He is the first to hear Cathy screaming and ran after her along with his crew. Deidre and him track down the InGen Corporation after the incident, but their compensation was settled outside of court.

Trivia Edit

  • An unused Hammond quote from Jurassic Park: Trespasser says: "Fortunately the Bowmans settled out of court, but the damage had been done."
  • If you listen closely when Paul and the crew run to help Cathy you can hear Paul say "Get away from my daughter!" although the line does not appear in the subtitles.[citation needed]
  • Geoffery, Edward, Barry, Bernard and two others are the names of his crew/servants aboard his yacht.
