In 2019, Paul was living in London with his sister Paris in a flat. He later matched with Max Schenkel on the Babaaroo dating app, unaware of Max's true identity as a wanted assassin. That night, Paul met Max at a nightclub where the two drank and danced together. Afterwards, Paul brought Max to his apartment and started making out with him. Paris walked in and asked Paul if he could keep it down as she had to get up early. Paul apologized and introduced Max to her. Max then walked up to Paris and stated that it was a pleasure to meet her as he took her hand and kissed it.
Unfortunately, Max had no intention to have sex with Paul. Instead, Max took Paris hostage, revealing that he only matched with Paul because he head a similar look and build as him. Max then threatened to kill Paris unless Paul went to a Steak & Co. restaurant in Leicester Square to meet with Rupert Thorne in his place as he believed the meeting was a possible sting. The next day, Paul walked into the restaurant and was immediately detained by MI5 agents, confirming Max's suspicions. Jack Ryan and Harriet Baumann then walked up to Paul to confirm his identify. When they realized he was not Max, Paul apologized, telling them he had been forced to do it as Max had his sister. Seconds later, Max shot and killed Thorne, having posted himself in a nearby apartment with a sniper rifle. Jack Ryan then ran out of the restaurant to purse Max through the city.
