"We're done fighting for a hole with a half dozen psychopaths living in it, they can keep it."
—Paul objecting to returning to assault the Prison a second time.[src]

Paul is a survivor of the zombie apocalypse in AMC's The Walking Dead. He appears as an outspoken resident of Woodbury.


Location UnknownEdit

Nothing is known about Paul's life before or as the outbreak began. It is possible that he used to live in or near Woodbury before the outbreak.


Season 3Edit

"The Suicide King"Edit

Paul is first seen the day after the Dixon brother arena fight. He is one of the rioting townspeople, armed with a tire iron and asks Shumpert and Martinez if they are allowed to leave Woodbury. A few minutes later, he says something to Andrea, but screaming is heard near the other wall. The wall had been breached and walkers had wandered into Woodbury. Paul witnessed Richard Foster receiving bites, and later watched as The Governor killed Richard, out of mercy and annoyance, because of Richard's cries of agony. When Andrea gave her speech about why everyone should stay in the town and rebuild, Paul agreed with her, but otherwise looked unimpressed.

"Welcome to the Tombs"Edit

Paul is seen invading the prison and firing on walkers. He is also seen making a retreat once Glenn and Maggie opened fire. Afterwards, he is one of the first to object to what just happened, he attempts to walk away from The Governor resulting in him being the first to die when The Governor opens fire on his own people, being shot in his shoulder.

Season 4Edit

"Live Bait"Edit

The corpse of Paul appears in a brief flashback after he was killed with the other residents of Woodbury by The Governor.


Killed ByEdit

After the "slaughter" at the prison, Paul is the first to argue that it is not right to go back to the prison. He is then shot in the shoulder by The Governor, killing him.

Killed VictimsEdit

Paul and Karen seem to have a good friendship as they both live in Woodbury. In "The Suicide King" they are shown to to have the same view on the situation at hand and that they both want to get out of Woodbury. They are then seen again together in "Welcome to the Tombs" and once again are seen supporting the same view together.

  • Originally, Paul was not a character being cast for. However, the producers were impressed with E. Roger Mitchell's performance that the character Paul was created for him, after he did not get the role of "Citizen" that he originally auditioned for.[1]
