Born in Tacoma, Washington, Paul
moved to La Push with his father
when he was eight years old
after his parents divorced.
Paul's father is a member of the
Quileute tribe. Though
Paul is often smug, controlling,
and has a short temper, he can
also be silly and playful at
Even though Paul is a distant
relative of Sam Uley, and he's
in the same grade as Jared
Cameron, he's not close to
either of them. He has his
own group of friends that he
hangs out with. So when he
phases into a wolf for the first
time, it draws attention when he
quickly stops hanging out with
them and becomes "buddy-buddy"
with Sam and Jared.
Joining Sam's pack, Paul is the
third of their generation to
shape-shift. Due to his
frequent angry outbursts, Paul
phases into his wolf-form quite

violent of his pack.

and injures his fiance, Emily
Young, Paul tries harder to
control his temper.
And when Paul meets and imprints

he has even more reason to
control his temper. Paul
still lives in La Push with his
father, though he can usually be
found at Rachel's father's house
annoying both Billy and Jacob
