Paul and Erik Fisher are pretty different and alike. Let's first start with their differences in their personality. Paul likes to be very aware and spends most of his time staring at his computer, while Erik likes to go out late at night with friends and seems to be very daring. Also, Paul has a desire for soccer which is using your foot, and Erik plays football, which is using your hands( and sometimes feet). It also seems like Erik is mostly attached to his dad and spends more time with him. Paul seems to be more comfortable and start a conversation with his mom. also, Erik seems to fit in with people and already has friends in Tangerine. Paul on the other hand seems to keep his feeling to himself at school, and seems to be quiet around "new"people.
