Vortex states in a Fulde-Ferrell-Larkin-Ovchinnikov (FFLO) superconductor are microscopically investigated by the quasi-classical Eilenberger theory. We calculate the spatial structure of the pair potential, paramagnetic magnetization (i.e., Knight shift in a magnetic field) and electronic states, including paramagnetic depairing effect in addition to the orbital depairing effect. Topologies of 2π phase winding at the vortex line and π phase shift at the FFLO nodal plane affect the distribution of paramagnetic magnetization and low energy electronic states. We also discuss the NMR resonance line shape observed in the high field phase of CeCoIn5.
