- “I agree to disagree.”— Paradox
- “Easy, Paradox, we're on the same side here.”— Troy
Paradox is presumably a student attending Greendale Community College. Based on just his appearance, he seems to be much older than most of the other students, possibly alcoholic, and maybe homeless as well. His first, and so far only, appearance is in the Season Two season finale episode "For A Few Paintballs More".
There is none. His first and only appearance was to be the punchline to a joke. His slurred speech as well as his holding and drinking a beer suggests he is possibly an alcoholic. The tattered and dirty clothing he wears may also indicate he is homeless. After he "agrees to disagree" with Magnitude, he doesn't appear in the rest of the episode and has not been seen since. If someone were to mention the word paradox again, he may show up, turning him into a running gag. Until then, his history is fair game...

The man who came to be known as Paradox was originally from an alternate reality where the TV show known as Inspector Spacetime was actually real. All the adventures that were televised had leaked through the dimensional ether and inspired it's creation. The man seen in "For A Few Paintballs More" was once a P.A.R.A.D.O.X. (Protector of Alternate Realities And Dimensions from Otherworldy Xenoforms) agent. His job was to prevent any illegal trans-dimensional incursions. Many times he had assisted Inspector Spacetime on various adventures and was even asked to become an associate at one point. However his duties with the SpaceTime Agency came first, a powerful organization set up at the dawn of time by the being simply known as The Creator. Existing outside of continuity it was tasked with overseeing the flow of time and space and making sure everything was moving in accordance with fate or as The Creator called it "The Grand Design". One of his fellow agents, an esper from the prescience division, warned him that sometime in 2011 a major transdimensional occurrence was going to happen between two parallel earths. Her warning was both cryptic and ominous:
After consulting the Space Chart he narrowed it down to Earth 917200. He uploaded the coordinates of that reality into his Maelstrom Operator, a device used by agents to travel to any point in time, space or reality. With it, agents were able to navigate The Dimensional Ether, a dark matter wall that separated all realities from each other. Before he could take the matter to his superiors, Blorgons invaded the STA headquarters. During the battle with enemy forces a stray eradicator beam hit his Maelstrom Operator inadvertently activating it. The device sent him to Earth 9172009 but the eradicator beam destabilized the units matrix. It's temporal circuitry, chronal buffers, and spacial convertors were severely damaged. None of the usual safety protocols were activated and he experienced the transdimensional journey through the Dimensional Ether completely unprotected. His mind and body underwent severe trauma, he emerged form the ether much older physically and with memory loss. To make matters worse, although he safely arrived on Earth 9172009, he was in the wrong time several years before the major transdimensional occurrence was to happen. His Maelstrom Operator and clothes were ruined, the only identifiable remnant of his former life was an STA identity card that barley survived the trip. On it only one word could be clearly made out: PARADOX.
