Aiden is 39 years old and was born in Belfast, Northern Ireland, but is now of American citizenship.
He is a highly skilled hacker with access to the ctOS, the central operating system, which allows him to access and control the entire information network. This includes monitoring phone conversations, as well as city cameras and even manipulating traffic lights.
Paranoid to a fault because of his knowledge of the world, Aiden is completely obsessed with surveillance and control, to a point where he even monitors the people close to him, without their knowledge or consent.
It is revealed Aiden has a warrant out for his arrest. The accusations include computer fraud, illegal possession of a firearm, and grand larceny.
