InGen Database Entry
Paul Kirby was Amanda Kirby 's ex-husband and father to Eric Kirby , who disappeared on Isla Sorna after a parasailing accident. With his ex-wife, Paul tricked Dr. Alan Grant into acting as a sightseeing guide for any dinosaurs they saw while flying over the island. The deception was revealed when they landed on the island and other members of the group turned out to be mercenaries.
After their ordeal, they continued to hunt for Eric. The group were separated during an attack by a pack of Velociraptors , and Paul, Amanda and Brennan were forced to hide in a tree. Reunited with Dr. Grant, they were overjoyed to see him with Eric, but the joy was short-lived when they were forced to evade the Spinosaurus again.
After other dangerous encounters, Paul heard the familiar ringtone of the satellite phone he had lent to the mercenary Nash . They tracked the sound to a mound of Spinosaurus dung and found the phone.
During another encounter with the Spinosaurus, Paul bravely distracted the attacking dinosaur using a crane. Eventually they reached the coast, were found by US Marines and escaped the island.
