Paul is an older kid that comes from Buckingham Palace who first appears in The Fear. His sister is Olivia Channing, and they seem to have a very strong sibling relationship. He is described as being quiet and liking to read. His character takes a turn at the end of The Fear, where he gets in a rage when he finds out his sister is dead and accuses the kids of not caring about her. Later, this leads into letting the grown-ups free, starting the first scene in The Fallen. This shows that he is clever and plans very well, as he never gets killed and successfully flees the museum later.
Boney-M first appears in the beginning of The Fallen. He is described of having a bony head with broken, skeletal wings emerging from his head, forming a M shape. He also has a long beak with tiny sharp teeth inside. He often insults Paul and encourages him to get rid of all the kids at the museum. Toward the end of The Fallen, it is announced that Boney-M is not real, just Paul's hallucination.
Appearance in the Books Edit
The Fear Edit
Paul does not seem to have an important role, at least until his sister dies from the Collector. He gets into a rage and accuses the kids of not caring about Olivia and leaving her to get eaten. Then, he opens the truck that has the grown-ups the scientists have been testing on and lets them go free to attack the rest of the kids. Unfortunately, he gets bitten in the process.
The Fallen Edit
Paul is shown to have gone rogue, hiding in a narrow staircase of a door that is locked under the sleeping area. This is when he first imagines Boney-M, who insults him but tells him to get rid of the kids at the museum. This later leads him to kill Samira, and opens her up to eat her since he has no other source of the food. When he tries to kill Cameron, it fails because Maxie catches him and hurts him in the process. He knows that he's been caught and runs around to Buckingham Palace. He manages to convince David to let him take care of the royal grown-ups, since he states that he can talk to them.
The End Edit
Paul becomes one of the main forces that control the sicko army in The End. The parasites have entered his brain from the bite he received and now he can control the grown-ups with his mind. David gets Paul to communicate with St. George and manipulates them both into attacking the other kids during the battle. Paul is becoming more sick and feverish throughout the book up until his death. In the middle of the battle, Jester suddenly feels a sense of guilt and strangles Paul. The flesh around the bite wound has rotted away so while Jester strangles him, Paul's head nearly falls off and he dies. He seems to be grateful that someone put him out of his misery as his last words are, "Thank you."
