Bio: 

A kind, sympathetic and friendly boy that always tries to see the good in people first. At times, Aiden seems to carry a wisdom beyond his years, but he's still just a kid most of the time. Sentimental, Aiden might become tempermental, or even cry when on a sensitive subject. Perhaps not the one to take the reigns in a situation, unless there is no other way. He adores his twin brother, Joel, and would do anything for him.

Aiden spent his entire life living in a small town called Nomega, along with his twin, Joel. They survived day by day by doing odd jobs for the Legion but had a nagging memory in the back of their heads from the past. The twin's educator during their Scholarship, Zani, had told them to go look for a place where Runners were free from the Protocol, a place called 'Free City'. Aiden tried to convince his brother multiple times but to no avail. Joel would avoid leaving Nomega for no good reason. One night, the twins share a dream and Aiden realized that the reason Joel didn't want to leave, was because he feared for Aiden's well-being. He just wanted to keep him safe. The two animals that appeared in their dream, a white lion and a black wolf, helped them decide to go find this mythical place. When they woke up, Joel still had his doubts, mentioning how Aiden seemed so different in their dream. But after some reassurance, the two took the first step and started their journey.

During an incident involving another Runner, Nolan, Aiden tried to reason with the teenager and help him realize he's stronger than his oppressors. Aiden became bitterly disappointed when he discovered Nolan would have just laid down and dies instead of standing up for himself. Leaving the teenager behind, the twins head for the cemetery to say farewell to Zani. Upon seeing her grave, Aiden is reminded that her death was because of suicide and he made Joel promise that his twin would never 'give up'. A small, emotional exchange later and the two were off into the forest. After three days of failing at basic survival, the twins both get trapped in some elaborate animal traps. Just before he drowns, Aiden get saved by a man named Dylan, who incidentally was the one who set up the traps in the first place. Dylan offers to give the twins food and shelter. After convincing Joel that it would be wise to do so, the brothers asked Dylan if he could re-teach them in basic survival, since he seemed to know what he was doing. The man agreed and training would start the next day. A kind, sympathetic and friendly boy that always tries to see the good in people first.
