  • Adorkable
  • Genius Ditz

  • Massive Numbered Siblings: He has 8 siblings.
  • Wise Beyond Their Years: As Baltzar points out himself, Paul's understanding of his choices' consequences means that he has the greater soldierly potential over Dieter. When he is chosen as part of the academy contingent for the war against Holbeck, he does not ponder over his future lightly.

  • Oblivious to Love: Posibbly to Jurgen
  • Open Secret: To Cavalry Division those spoilered bits are this. Then Jurgen spilled the beans to Paul, Dieter, Marcel and Thomas.
