The Black Contractor[]

Paul is involved in a mission along with Shinoda Chiaki, Jean, Louis and Alain to steal secret information from the National Institute of Science by illegally accessing the computers through PANDORA's core system. After Louis is killed, he is present when Shinoda wakes up after being captured by Jean. While they are talking, Paul notices something and Alain comments that he saw nothing. Jean notes that only Contractors can see a Doll's observer spectre just as the power is cut off. Shinoda escapes and the three French agents chase after her, but they lose her.[2]

Alain and Paul chase after Hei and Shinoda.

Along with Alain, he later finds Shinoda with Hei and pursues them through a restaurant. He uses his ability to try to stop them escaping, but they manage to evade the French agents.

They rush after Hei and catch up with him, but Hei quickly defeats and kills Alain.
