I'm Paul, greatest thief in all the world! They've yet to invent the loot I can't burgle or steal!


Paul, also known as Pavel, is a thief loyal to Fynn in Final Fantasy II. He is encountered many times, where he helps the party.



Paul's appearance has changed. Originally, Paul looked like a ninja wearing black robes that obscured his face. However, his appearances from Final Fantasy I & II: Dawn of Souls onwards is more in-line with the original design created by Yoshitaka Amano: a blond-haired man wearing a white tunic, a metal chest plate, a purple cape and leather boots.


Paul prefers working alone than with others. He makes a living by stealing from the Empire and boasts of being the best thief in the world. Though he steals frequently, he tells the party that he will not steal from them, as he does not steal from his friends. After being helped by Firion and his friends, Paul wants to return the favor and comes to their aid in their time of need.

Firion and his allies meet Paul in Altair where he tells them he will not steal from them. Paul is a member of the Wild Rose Rebellion, and makes his living by stealing from the Palamecian Empire. During the party's search for mythril, they find Paul as a prisoner at the Semitt Falls. Paul, too, searched for mythril, but was captured while attempting to free the enslaved inhabitants from Salamand. Paul escorts the prisoners to Salamand while Firion and his friends continue their search for mythril.

When Firion and his allies are captured in the Coliseum during their rescue mission for Princess Hilda, Paul repays his debt by freeing them. After the Liberation of Fynn Paul provides information about the secret passage at Fynn Castle when the party is looking for the White Mask.

When Firion and company inform Paul of their intent to infiltrate the Cyclone with the wyvern, Paul gives the party his secret stash of treasure, including a Blood Sword. After they vanquish the Emperor and the Cyclone, Paul provides information on how to get into Palamecia. When the group tells him about their plans to go into Hell to face the revived Emperor one last time, Paul exclaims that the lot of them are bonkers, but wishes them well and tells them to come home safely afterward.

After Firion and company bring peace to the world by felling the Emperor, Paul proclaims that he is now no longer serving Fynn and is now stealing from everyone regardless of their role in the war, including his former allies. He warns the party jokingly to watch their backs from now on.
