- "If I hadn't gotten Knox this job, chances are he'd be out knocking over liquor stores or robbing banks."
- —Ted Gaynor on Paul Knox[src]
Paul Knox was a member of the Blackhawk Squad Protection Group, and a former marine who fought with John Diggle and Ted Gaynor in Afghanistan. Paul didn't get along that well with John, which was clear from the start given John's reluctance to even shake his hand. He was killed when The Hood snapped his neck.
