Throughout the SeriesEdit

Season 1Edit

In eXodus, Paula had been sent a message from Jace saying that he would be working late. Paula responded that she was proud of him.

In boXed in, Paula was called by Jace and he told her that he wouldn't make it because he was going to run late. Paula was confused as she thought that he was only transporting a prisoner today but he told her that what he was doing was a follow up. She then heard about him being kidnapped but wasn't allowed to see him in the hospital. When he came home, she was relieved but she became confused when Jace asked if Grace was inside. She was then woefully forced to remind Jace that Grace had died years ago.

Jace suspects that mutants are behind the blackouts, and Paula is disappointed

In unMoored, Paula asks Jace about a meeting he had earlier that day, to which he replies that he thinks he landed a new client for the firm. Defense contractor, who want to use some private security guys. While Paula is thrilled, Jace seems distracted. He had been thinking about the blackouts that hit D.C. He had a feeling about them, that they were mutant related. Paula becomes upset, asking him not to back track to this obsession with the Mutant Underground as he had been doing so well for the last three months. While Jace insists that while he's moved on, the blackouts are certainly the doing of mutants. However, Paula is very much aware of the files he keeps on the Mutant Underground in the attic. Paula wants to build a new family, and so she makes Jace promise that he;ll focus on what's important.

Paula is happy to have Jace back

Paula returns home to find Jace throwing away all his files on the Mutant Underground. For the longest time, he thought that if he stopped, he'd be letting Grace down. The truth is, there's not enough justice in the world for Grace, and if he doesn't let go of the past, he's going to lose his future, too. Jace says to Paula that she didn't just lose her daughter on 7/15. She lost her husband, too. Hearing this from Jace, means a lot to Paula, who then hugs Jace.

In coMplications Jace leaves to go to Washington DC after news of the lights appearing in the sky over the city which he believes are tied to the mutants he had been after. When Jace arrives, he calls her but he finds that it went to voicemail, again. He leaves a message where he tells her that he's sorry for leaving but he had to and it would all be worth it. He would then call her again when the job is done.

Personality Edit

Paula has shown to deeply love and care for her family. She doesn't seem to despise mutants as her husband Jace does, following the events of 7/15 during which their daughter Grace was killed, though she does supports her husband's working for Sentinel Services. But upon discovering her husband's underhanded and immoral operations within Sentinel Services, she became very ashamed of him and believed him to be disgracing their daughter's name for what he had been doing.

After Jace leaves Sentinel Services, they move and she believes it could be a fresh start for them but she is disappointed to see that he is still chasing after the mutants and not moving on. She then becomes happy when she finds Jace throwing his old files away, telling her that he's ready to move on with her instead of being stuck in the past. However, soon after, he leaves her to go to DC after an incident with mutant ties is reported and she has started making his calls to her go straight to voicemail, indicating she is deeply upset with him.
