* {{Badass}}: As a soldier in the zombie war, he spent years on end destroying zombies with his battalion.

to:

* ArmorIsUseless: One of his many complaints about Yonkers was the MOPP 4 protective gear the rank and file soldiers were wearing, several layers of rubber, charcoal, and heavy body armor, on one of the hottest days of the year, while letting the many reporters and superiors wear normal clothing.
* {{Badass}}: As a soldier in the zombie war, he spent years on end destroying zombies with his battalion. He saw combat through the entire war, from Yonkers to Hope to the reclaiming of America.
* DadTheVeteran: A veteran of the Zombie War, and now a husband and father.


Added DiffLines:

* WhatWereYouThinking: His first interview section is spent chastising the poor planning of Yonkers, from the poor tactical decisions to the "Land Warrior" system that only served to incite further panic.
* YoungerThanTheyLook: He's described as being old before his time, and that looking at him, you wouldn't be able to tell he's at the beginning of his life chronologically.


Added DiffLines:

* TookALevelInBadass: Went from a scrawny hikikomori otaku teenager to hardened warrior. Fittingly, he's voiced in the audiobook by Creator/MasiOka, aka {{Series/Heroes Hiro Nakamura}}

** NotSoStoic: It seems that when Nelson Mandella showed Paul what might have been the first real act of emotion and empathy towards him, Paul was shaken so deeply that it destroyed the very foundations of everything he believed in.
