Dale "Barbie" Barbara is a main character in the novel. He is one of the 26 survivors of the Dome.

Before the Dome Edit

Barbie is a former Army lieutenant (initially referred to as a former captain by Colonel Cox), Barbara became a drifter after separating from the Army. Trapped within feet of the edge of the Dome, witnessing a woodchuck cut in half by the event, Dale was attempting to flee the town after a confrontation with Junior Rennie and his friends.

Under the Dome Edit

Dale soon becomes the U.S. government's choice to run Chester's Mill. This causes more tension among Dale, Big Jim, and Junior, causing the two to frame Dale for the murders they commit.
