Paul Strings is the Chief Justice of his State's Supreme Court, and quite a towering presence. A self-taught man who comes from a poor family in the countryside with an abusive father, he is an avid reader who is fond of quoting famous philosophers and intellectuals, and has a love for everything ancient. Even if he is not in charge of the Judge Chambers case, he seems to be strangely involved with its events, and appears to have a history with the defendant. His son, Gerald, is Judge's replacement in court.

Paul Strings is a rather pompous and pretentious man who speaks in a convoluted, archaic way. Even in private, he behaves like an important public figure, and acts cold and distant towards everyone, including his own son (though in reality he is very proud of him). Paul is extremely idealistic and has high moral standards: he strives to follow a stoic lifestyle, and is as strict to himself as he is to others. However, the abstractions in his books and the realities of a life of power have been known to contradict each other...
