Jean-Paul (misnamed as John-Paul in the manual) is one of the playable characters in the single player mode from One Must Fall: 2097 and an opponent in the tournaments. During his childhood, it was found that he had the an uncanny ability to absorb information of any kind. He would score perfect on any test, and was hired at a young age for the first job WAR could place him in. The company has asked several times if he would volunteer for "genetic research", but Jean-Paul knows that they simply want to know how he can have such a perfect mind. He also knows of the corruption within WAR and hopes to gain enough support from other companies to finally overthrow the larger "monster" before it does any more damage.
In combat, Jean-Paul is calculating and has very well-rounded abilities. He rarely ever speaks, but always seems to be calm and sure of himself. He is as defensive in the arena as he is in public.
