Dawkins was former college teacher that lived at the camp Cassie, Sammy, and their dad were a part of before it was destroyed. He was the only atheist in the camp and his arch enemy was Mother Teresa, an old woman who always talked about the Lord Jesus.

During one of her preachings Mother Teresa said, "Forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors", and Dawkins had shouted back "especially those of extraterrestrial origin!" One person that listened to the preachings answered with, " You're going to hell!"; which Dawkins had answered with, "How do I tell the difference?" These two sentences were the only things he said in the whole series, if he is dead or not in unknown. Though it is most likely that he is dead, due the shouting and destroying of the camp later.

Dawkins first name, background, appearance and so on is unknown.

The professor in the camp may be a reference to real life professor, ethologist, and evolutionary biologist Richard Dawkins. Dawkins is a noted atheist who is known for his criticism of creationism and intelligent design.

Also, I only own the Swedish pocket version of the novel so the quotes may or may not be exactly right. I just thought Dawkins deserved a page of his own.)
