Played by ZACHARY BEST
Having a disability in this post-apocalyptic wasteland is difficult enough, but this mischievous young boy seems to take it all in his stride, enjoying life alongside his sister, Patsy. Being deaf, Paul gets by via signing to his sister, only occasionally talking to others. His deafness however has heightened his other senses, and he is more acutely aware of vibrations in the floor or the air, allowing him to warn the Mall Rats of dangers that they are completely unaware of.
With his sister, the two manage to blackmail Jack and his secret food store, using the knowledge of its existence to exploit him for treats. It is through this exploitation that the food store is eventually discovered. Paul is playing a high stakes game of poker with Ryan and keeps going back for more food. The food store is uncovered and Ryan lets it slip to the rest of the Mall Rats.
Paul suddenly disappears one day and is not seen again. It is believed that Lex shouted at him and he ran away.
