Mental characteristics

Personal history

Aiden grew up in The Sink with Clark, under the impression that Clark was his father. He never had any information about his mother during childhood. Clark, too seemed a reluctant father, avoiding the title of "dad" and showing Aiden little affection though Clark did love him.   When Aiden's Skill didn't manifest naturally, he went through rigorous "testing" from Clark but it was ineffective. These tests involved physically and emotionally stressing Aiden, sometimes leaving him with wounds. While the physical ones eventually healed, the emotional ones never did.   This caused Aiden to grow up cynical and untrusting, unable to get close to people and unable to really love or accept himself the way he was. As he grew into a teen, and it was clear his Skill wasn't coming, Clark sent him to an-expensive CORPs-Run boarding school to help him transition to the life of a True and to find some future in Mech Culture, since Clark couldn't see a future with the savants.

Failures & Embarrassments

  • He blames himself for failing to manifest a Skill and disappointing Clark.
  • Embarassment:
  • Lack of Skill
  • Unable to fit into the one culture he desperately wants to (the savants)
  • Unable to fit into mech culture, thus being labeled a "freak"
  • Mental Trauma

    The tests to try and manifest his Skill wore down his mental health causing him to futher his depression and detachment from society.

    Intellectual Characteristics

    Very intelligent in science, math, and history. Since he spent most of his childhood alone with the best tech Clark could offer him, he absorbed all topics, working into advanced sciences and maths before his teenage years.

    Morality & Philosophy

    Kind of hates everyone.

    Personality Characteristics


    Aiden wants to find his place in the world, but more immediately, he needs to understand what his Skill does and why no one knew about his or his father's Skills.

    Quotes & Catchphrases
    "I’m saying that, throughout history, humans have always gravitated toward greatest danger as the metric for greatest success. This won’t be the only chance you get to put yourself in extreme peril."
      “I think what you meant to says is, ‘Hey Aiden. I’m glad you survived the XCGen bombing and subsequent capture of your brother. Are you okay?’ To which I’d reply, ‘No, but thank you for asking.’”
