⌈H A I RβŒ‹
Aaron’s hair is a dark chestnut brown color. Before, his hair was styled as a buzz cut for military reasons and also for the fact that it was incredibly easy to manage. Since he was discharged, he let it grow out to a short, yet still manageable, length in a more spiky style. This is how it naturally grew.

⌈E Y E SβŒ‹
Unlike his hair, his eyes are much more complicated. At times they can appear an almost steel blue color. At others they appear to be a pale hazel color. Aaron has been asked about this in regards to the use of contacts, but it is completely natural.

⌈S K I NβŒ‹
Aarons skin has a peach mixed with honey complexion with an almost year-round tan. It comes from being outside constantly throughout his entire life participating in sports and military duties. In the winter, he reverts to his honey complexion minus the tan.

⌈H E I G H TβŒ‹
5’ 11”

⌈W E I G H TβŒ‹
179

⌈B O D YX T Y P EβŒ‹
Aaron’s built very well. He is naturally slim, but after playing baseball and through extensive PT training, his frame is wrapped with muscles. Keep in mind he isn’t incredibly muscular. He just has enough muscle to have an athletic body type. His original slim stature still peeks through.

⌈B O D YX M A R K I N G SβŒ‹
Aaron doesn’t sport any tattoos, however he does have a few scars on his chest and arms from being grazed and shot with bullets. They aren’t huge or circular in shape, but are instead small lines where surgeons had to cut him open in order to remove the bullets.

⌈U N I Q U EX F EA T U R E SβŒ‹
Though Aaron is no longer in the military he still carries, for lack of better word, the aura of a soldier. It’s mostly in his walk, but his demeanor also hints at his military background.

⌈P O T E N T I A L - I N T E R E S TβŒ‹
None at the current moment: The last woman he started to fall for tried to kill him. She spotted him outside her house and she ran towards him, chomping at the air. He planted a bat in her skull His sense of romance crumpled to the ground…like her body.

⌈S K I L L S - A B I L I T I E SβŒ‹
    β˜… Strength || Though it might not look it, Aaron is very strong. Being in the military he learned how to use every bit of his strength against anyone at any given time. Knowing this, it might be just considered the knowledge of applying the right amount of force in the right places, but it’s much easier to classify it as strength.
    β˜… Tenacity || Aaron, through athletic and military training, has learned that pain and resistance can be controlled through mind and will power. He knows how to fight through physical and mental barriers to achieve results. Many people are hindered from discovering their full potential with their barriers, but Aaron is not. He is convinced those barriers are just a frame of mind.
    β˜… Weapon Flexibility || Though men are taught to use firearms in the military, it’s not always a focal point. You are also taught to use what is available, and this is a specialty of Aaron’s. Anything can become a useful weapon in his hands from the Bowie knife he carries, to his steel bat, to a stick on the ground. It doesn’t matter. If he can pick it up, he can use it.

⌈S T R E N G T H SβŒ‹
    ♦ Thick Skin || Not much bothers Aaron. He’s had to live with many different people with different personalities, so not getting upset over the little things was necessary. Along with not letting small things bother him, he learned to get over things quickly. Sure people get into fights; they have differences. The key is to get over them. You can’t work as a team with everyone pisses at each other.
    ♦ Focus || It’s hard to make quick decisions when everything around you is going to hell, but Aaron has learned how to tune the outside world out and concentrate on the task or decision at hand regardless of noise or stress.
    ♦ Trustworthy || Aaron will stop at nothing to do what he has to do if someone else is depending on him. When he says he’s going to do something he does his best to follow through with it.

⌈W E A K N E S S E SβŒ‹
    ✘ Trusting || Sometimes Aaron forgets how deceitful the world can be, opening himself up to disappointment and lies from others. Not everyone believes in trust like he does.
    ✘ Blunt || Though he is quite straightforward, the truth may come out a bit harsh. He doesn’t normally mean for it to, but sometimes the truth is hard to take and no amount of sugar coating is going to make it better.
    ✘ Confident || Aaron knows what he is capable of and sometimes overestimates that a little. The sometimes can lead to him taking unnecessary risks. This also leads to others perceiving him as egotistical.

⌈O T H E RβŒ‹
  • Aaron has a very relaxed attitude. Don’t take it as lazy.
  • He knows the situation that he has currently found himself in is ridiculous and he will not hesitate to say so.

|| Rough β–ͺ Calm β–ͺ Brave β–ͺ Tainted β–ͺ Straightforward ||


Aaron is an army man and acts as such without all the stiff steeliness many from the military seem to adopt. He is a brave ma, having seen much at a young age. He tells things like they are, though he may be tactless and blunt when he does. Many people dislike this trait and tend not to ask his opinion because he will give it to them. Though he retains his honor, Aaron isn’t some goody two shoes. He has his demons and deals with them his way. He doesn’t have some moral code he stands by. All he believes in is respect and trust. Don’t betray his trust, and you’ll get his respect. As soon as you do, you’re nothing in his book.

⌈H I S T O R YβŒ‹

On May 12, 1986, Aaron was born to Lily and Thomas Hurst, a young happy couple. They lived in a small two bedroom house on the beach and were quite the pair. Lily was a nurse at Oak City General Hospital and Thomas was a military man who’d been honorably discharged from the army and became a gym teacher at Lavender High. This was the setup and it remained like this for most of Aaron’s childhood.

At school, Aaron, or Ronnie as they called him, was a smart young man and an athlete. He played all sports but was particularly fond of baseball. He’d spend hours at the batting cages and on the field practicing. He’d gotten pretty good and was the star athlete at his high school. Aaron was given the title β€œMost Likely To Succeed” and was offered numerous scholarships at schools all over the states. Lily and Thomas were so proud. Unfortunately, everything had to change.

On a Saturday in April during his senior year, his Dad came to pick him up from a late practice. His mom would have been the one to normally do so, but she’d been called in for a double shift at the hospital. When they arrived home, they were subdued by three men who’d broken in their home. Aaron and his father were tied up immediately.

Somehow, Aaron’s father got loose and untied himself and Aaron. Then he rushed one of the robbers, attacking him and pulling off his mask in the process. With no hesitation, another one of the burglars grabbed a vase and smacked Thomas over the head with it. He slumped to the ground instantly. Shocked and screaming Aaron ran for his dad, but got the same thing. The burglars shouted at each other, grabbed what they could and bolted. Aaron pulled his cellphone out his pocket and dialed 911.

His father’s funeral was a long one, filled with lots of people sharing stories of how great a man Thomas was. Aaron just sat on the front row, marinating in his own guilt and hatred. In the following months, Aaron’s grades went down a bit and he started skipping practices. The men that broke into his house hadn’t been found by police yet, so Aaron conducted his own search. Soon enough, he found one of the guys.

Within another night or two, Aaron found himself at the man’s front door with a hat on advertising a local pizza place. As soon as the door opened, Aaron planted the end of the bat in the man’s stomach and smacked him in the knee. The entire night Aaron tortured him until he gave up his partners. Aaron dealt one more blow to the guy’s head, hearing a sickening crunch as it came down.

The other two went the same way: two loud crunches.

Upon graduation, Aaron went to the army like his dad. He stayed in service for seven years. He ended up being honorably discharged to take care of his mother. She’d gotten cancer and didn’t have anyone else to take care of her. When all the zombie crap went down, she was in the hospital. He hasn’t heard from or seen her since, so he figures she’s long gone. It hurts to think about it, but what else should he expect?

I guess that’s just how life is. It’s not a strange, mysterious thing. You just gotta choose whether to fall apart or keep picking up the pieces.
