Paula“ I wonder if they are safe... It worries me. ”
Paula was an elf who served as a trainee, and later a graduate, in the Knights of Gaien. She once lived in the Elven Settlement on Na-Nal Island with her mother, but was exiled along with her mother, Romina. Although a very quiet person, she is a friendly person and, as a rarity, does not hold a racial bias from her elven heritage although she was troubled that despite having lived so many years in human society, she didn't know how to help reconcile the two races.
Even when her friend was exiled from Razril on the charge of killing Glen Cott, she would continue to believe in his innocence and would fight alongside him against the Kooluk Empire in the Island Liberation War. On board the Headquarters Ship, she would serve faithfully but would worry that she needed to train harder in order to avoid becoming a liability.
Her achievements were recognised after the war ended, with Paula being granted permission to return home to the Elven Settlement on Na-Nal Island.
