[DETAILED STATS]

 Appearance:
   
Ginger haired, blue eyed male standing at 6'0" with a muscular frame that has been balanced out with his height. Paul keeps his hair cut short and his beard even more so, though during operations, it's not unusual for him to grow it out. Being ginger, his skin has been weathered from the amount of times he had been sun-burnt. Most of the time, he holds an intimidating appearance, though, maybe it's just the grumpy man manifesting within him.

He is quite simplistic in his approach to clothing; anything that's comfortable or practical - be it a t-shirt and jeans or a shirt and dress trousers (if he must) and a simple waterproof black watch. He often feels uncomfortable and out of place in a suit or if he needs to scrub up well, but he would hardly comment on it.

 Personality:

Paul is a quiet individual. He's not shy, but if he does not have something worthwhile to say, he often does not say it as he knows it may not help the situation. Observant of his surroundings would be a distinguishing feature about him, always noticing things - whether it be a vase moved two inches to the left/ right or a trail where the dirt's been disturbed.

But, when Paul does have something worth his energy to discuss, or even, argue about - you better hold onto your horses because he's efficient and he goes from 0-100.

Jokes are harder to get past him, mainly because most of the time, he's preoccupied with the job at hand. He's part-adrenaline junkie and part-workaholic, neither tend to be a good combination but Paul manages to pull it off.

Don't try to tug on his strings as an instructor, as it won't bode well for anyone as he's capable of coming down upon people like a brick house.

  • Riding horses

  • Reading
  • Being active and being outdoors doing something interactive

 Personal History:

Born in New York City to a large middle class family, Paul was the second out of five. He was a quiet child, except from the days when his parents were busy enough to have the oversight to feed him. His father had been a part of the 101st Airborne during his younger years before an IED had taken his right leg, gaining him an honorable discharge. His mother was a lawyer and his eldest sister had taken a medical degree by the time he was starting high school.

The siblings were made of three boys and two girls; Paul being the second adopted child. He had been adopted at an early age - he does not remember much about his biological family. But, the Harris family was his family for all he cared about. Paul liked the see the medals, seek them out when his father hid them in the attic and question him relentlessly (as any good five year old does) about his service. His father did not talk openly about it, but as he grew older, Paul understood why.

Paul did not enjoy school, but he still put in the effort, so that he did not disappoint his family. Though, ever present in the back of his mind was the army. Once he had graduated in 1989, he had gone for the 101st Airborne - following in his father's footsteps, though he took it steps further - wanting to challenge himself.

And, challenge himself he did.

 Relationships:

  • James "Redneck" Hendricks, fellow CAG operator, TL (Alive - friend)
  • Elias "Doc" Caruso, fellow CAG operator (Alive - friend)
  • Hector "Speedy" Rodriquez, fellow CAG operator (Alive - friend)

Only a couple of issues. You have his pathfinder listed twice. It's just one school, like one and done...like Air Assault.

Demo and breaching is universal. But you can keep it if he's like a magician with that stuff.

I'm time for schools assessment and selection lasts about two werks. Followed that is the Q course shiwhich where you're trained in the Special forces MOS or job. The shortest time frame you can work with is a little over a year. So the time between Selection amd being assigned  (though you can be assigned dirrong Q-Course) needs to be bumped up. No one just gets pushed through either. Gotta grind it out with everyone.

Also he needs to have attended and passed junpmaster school, to become a black hat (Airborne instructor) just little things to keep in mind.

And lastly, his security clearance needs to be increased.
