- "Fuck you, Kenny! I am so, so SO sorry about Katjaa and Duck. I am! And I know I fucked up! But STOP pushing me around, and STOP wishing I was dead! NO! You know how they died...you’ve said goodbye. I never got to see my family, my parents, my little sister...don't you get that? Your family’s gone, but at least you had them to lose! I never made it home...they could be alive or dead or walkers or worse and I don’t know! SO GIVE ME A FUCKING BREAK!"

Ben Paul is a main character first encountered in Chapter 9 of the A New Day series. Prior to the outbreak, he was a student at Stone Mountain High School, where he played in the band alongside his best friend Travis, and learned under his teacher and director, David Parker. Although kind and good-hearted, Ben often puts the group in danger by accidentally making poor or cowardly decisions, and is the one responsible for the chain reaction of events that occur in "Act III - Long Road Ahead" and "Act IV - Around Every Corner".
This list shows the victims Ben has killed:
- Soos Ramirez (Indirectly Caused)
- Lilly Caul (Indirectly Caused)
- Katjaa (Indirectly Caused)
- Ken Jr. (Indirectly Caused)
- Charles (Indirectly Caused)
- Brie (Indirectly Caused, Alive)
- A few zombies.
- It is revealed in "Act III - Long Road Ahead" that Ben was the one giving supplies to the woodland bandits, inadvertently causing the deaths of four of the group members.
- Ben soon confessed this to the group in "Act IV - Around Every Corner".
- Ben was originally planned to die in "Act IV - Around Every Corner", but the idea was dropped.
- Ben has caused the most indirect deaths of any character in the story.
