Physical Description Paul is a tall, powerfully built man. Raised in a military style household he tends to put special effort into maintaining his health, and his physical fitness. He keeps his hair trimmed short, and wears little facial hair, though he does usually sport at least some. His brown eyes are soft, and expressive, and are often the only way to truly read any emotion on his face. His choice of clothing is rather basic, relying on comfort, function, and durability more than fashion, he is often in a pair of old jeans, some work boots, and a t-shirt, or long sleeve Henley when not on duty.

Personality & Traits

General Overview Paul is a man who prefers to get straight to the point in any given situation. Not gifted with a diplomatic personality, he tends to just speak his mind, and deal with the consequences as they come. He is a driven man, with goals, and plans to attain those goals, all mapped out and ready for him, as he prefers to leave nothing to chance. He prefers order, and organization, and expects those around him to fall into line with that. When it comes to nonprofessional relationships, be they platonic, or romantic, he is a very honest man, never allowing anyone to get the wrong idea about his intentions. Preferring deep connections over shallow acquaintances it can take him some time to integrate into new surroundings and become a social person.
