To Paula, fashion means little to her- so she normally wears various lazy-day outfits, which can often cause embarrassing moments whenever Michael stumbles upon her room. Wearing glasses are optional- as she only wears them to look trendy.
Paula may seem like an average college student at first glance- but when one warms up to her, she is actually very loud and carefree- with an obsession for gaming. Procrastinating is what she is claimed to be good at- delaying work until the very last minute, where she is pressured by her roommate about her grades, particularly when it comes to mathematics and science. Even so, she is not entirely absorbed into gaming, and delaying productivity- as she is concerned over her family, and often spends time with them during breaks or vacations, particularly in the winter- and looks after her roommate and his younger brother- treating them like her own siblings, sometimes like her own children.
Paula was born in Barfield to the joy of the Gray family- particularly her older sister, Pauline. The four were generally content with their lives, and Paula and Pauline were as happy as any child could be- playing Mario Party and many other console games whenever they both came home from school. The household was in good shape- until Paula's parents were having marital problems- as Alicia became interested in one of Jacob's co-workers, but Jacob brushed it off, saying they only wanted to be friends- until he discovered their affair, in the form of love letters in the couple's nightstand. After learning Jacob's discovery, Alicia immediately filed for divorce- but Jacob managed to attain custody of the two Gray siblings. Now motherless, Paula became less talkative and optimistic, believing her family to be incomplete- no matter how many times her father and sister would reassure her everything was fine, and that they were still a complete family.
Eventually, she grew to overcome her negative thoughts- and by high school, she was the same optimistic and chatty girl she was. Even so, she did not put everyday teen activities over her studies- and it later paid off when she had been accepted to college, to the joy of Pauline and Jacob. On the day she moved to her dorm, Paula met the Hayden brothers- who had already set up their rooms. Paula greeted Michael, and started to chat with him as he helped her set up her side of their room- and often walked around in the park during weekends, which would usually end up with both of them barely talking for the rest of the day, as many had mistaken them for a couple. They eventually grew used to it, and the trio were doing well until Charlie had caught Paula playing DotA one night- and decided to join in, which in turn was a costly mistake for the Hayden brothers. Paula did not mind, and continued playing with Charlie- until now the trio go against each other in gaming and many other activites, treating each other like family.
Jacob and Alicia Gray - Paula's parents. Paula never had much of a bond with her mother, although her sister did. After their divorce, Paula shut out everyone dear to her, until she outgrew her sorrows and reconciled with her father.
Pauline Gray - Paula's older sister, and best friend since childhood. The two are inseparable, and often call on each other on updates- Pauline doing most of the contacting. Albeit being far away, the two still maintain in touch and have a strong relation with each other.
Michael Hayden - Paula's best friend, and secret crush. The reason why she keeps her feelings bottled up is that she knows of Michael's admiration over Therese Hepburn- and does an excellent job hiding her feelings over him.
Charlie Hayden - Michael's younger brother, and a close friend. The two had met the same day she'd met Michael- and often engage in battles against each other over DotA and CoD multiplayer, in which Paula almost always wins.
She is named Paula to mimic her sister's name, "Pauline".
She used to be an alcoholic- until Michael had asked her to stop, since he was afraid his brother might be influenced.
