33 years old. He is known as Uncle Paz to his niece and nephew, J.P and Lou, and simply Paz to everyone else. Kind of a loser by vocation, he is a former teen idol (for a legendary dance hit in the 90’s – to which the video has disappeared). Overgenerous and enterprising, he works for Zappa Records for the tyrannical director of the record company, Mr. Zappa, an authoritarian figure which he holds in terrible but reverent awe. He is J.P’s and Lou’s mom’s younger brother and is the adult who takes care of the kids during her long tours with the orchestra. He is seen by his sister as the black sheep of the family who can never do anything right, but in spite of this, they are bound by their love for each other as siblings like J.P and Lou are.
