To me Pavlos seems to have a bit of a "lights on but no one is home" look to him. He seems nice and well mannered but kind of dumb or at least not terribly bright. He is smart enough to stay married to a very rich lady lol.
I can imagine that, but didn't he manage to study at Georgetown in the USA? (roomies with his 1st cousin Felipe of Spain)
If you know the right people and grease the right palms, you could get into Georgetown (and lots of other places). At least back then, before Operation Varsity Blues.
