When Raoul was a teenager, he had a run-in with something he doesn’t like talking about. Although he survived the encounter, it left him extremely sensitive to forces that Hoffman Foundation scientists are still trying to quantify. No one has figured out how Raoul’s “gift” works or how he can control it, but Raoul has figured out that his sensitivity does produce something akin to visions or premonitions, particularly in his dreams.
Over the last few years, Raoul’s dream visions have proven very useful to the Hoffman Foundation in preventing tragedies around the globe (or in some cases, preventing them from being worse). Thomas Kane had Raoul transferred to the Paranormal Research & Defense Team to aid in Myra Kim in administering the team, and to hopefully give the team a valuable heads-up through his visions.
