Dogen Boole is a new camper at Whispering Rock Psychic Summer Camp. He tends to believe the scary stories older campers tell him and can cry when frightened. He hasn't harnessed his psychic abilities yet so he wears a special tinfoil hat to prevent people around him from having their heads explode. Dogen was the first character in Psychonauts to have his brain taken away by Dr. Loboto.
