Analyn Angeles grew up in the Philippines. Being very intelligent, she was able to get accepted to go to college abroad, in the States. At college, she met Adam Anderson, who was a year older than her. After beginning a friendship between the two, they began an on-again-off-again relationship that lasted six years. Neither can remember who suggested it, but at some point, they agreed on trying to keep the relationship on. Eventually, after one more year, they got married.

About a year into their marriage, they discovered that they couldn't have kids. They found a girl named Erica who wanted to give up the baby boy she was, at the time, pregnant. Unknown to them, since Erica was a witch, there was a big chance that the baby would be magic too. Neither would find out about her magic. She gave birth to him on the 16th of April, and Analyn chose the name Aiden, pronounced eye-den instead of the usual pronunciation of the name.

Aiden's parents are intelligent, so naturally, they expected the same from their son. He'd lie because even at a young age, he had low self-esteem. His grades in school were average at best, but he lied to his parents saying that teachers always tell him that he's such a good kid, or that he actually got the highest grade in the class. Soon, the lies started becoming more than just about school, and more and more about anything at all. He grew up in an environment that made him feel the need to lie, and also one that made him feel like he wasn't the kid his parents wanted, making him have very low self-esteem.

His first sign of magic, unnoticed by anyone, had something to do when the weather. He was annoyed that somebody didn't invite him to their birthday party, held outdoors. He was so mad that he shattered a glass, and the next second, thunder was heard. A storm had formed. The party was cancelled due to bad weather.

His parents, who still kind of babied him, still saw him as the innocent angel that he was at the age of five. It was when he was eleven, when he told the truth and they thought he was lying. He was told to get the letters left on their porch, and when he did he immediately brought the Hogwarts letter to his room, and read it. He told his parents, and they dismissed it as a prank. There was a mix up, though, Hogwarts thought that since Erica Jensen was his mother, his family would be aware he was magical. After receiving no reply, they sent a Hogwarts representative to talk to his family and explain the situation. They agreed to send him there, despite Hogwarts being in England. Ever since, he's lived with a relative of his that his parents trusted, the week before the term starts.

He was sorted into Hufflepuff. It was a hatstall between that and Slytherin. The hat had said it was an unusual combo, but it told him that his loyalty to his friends and family is what put him in there. The whole process of wanting to gain more friends and popularity, a new web of lies was formed. Jennie was sorted into Gryffindor, so they barely saw each other, and Jennie didn't particularly care about his lies anymore either, just the people he might hurt. He met a girl named Sakura who's shy, but sweet. (It's annoying how shy she is, he thinks, but he puts up with it because he actually kind of likes her.) There's Aisling Callaghan, who he really doesn't like, because she encourages Jennie's pyromania; Beau Smith is that annoying kid who likes adventures; Brooklynn Frost is this brat who shares the same ideals as he does, so he likes her enough; Abraam who likes drawing his sister; and Quentin Weird is too nice for survival.

In his third year, Madam Antoinette, in order to save Hufflepuff's perfect reputation, forced Aiden to join the Quidditch team as chaser, probably to build his character os something like that. He hates it, but is too competitive for him to actually throw a game. He also has to take Divination because of their deal, and he really, really doesn't like the subject.

He lied to cover up other lies. He forgot about some lies. He distinctly remembered others. There were lies that he liked so much that he started to make himself believe them. Some people realize that he's lied in the past, but no one has realized that it's become compulsive. And really, it's just getting worse.

Aiden isn't smart, exactly, he's just hardworking. He acknowledges his intelligence, and doesn't deny it, but he knows it all boils down to the fact that he works for it. He doesn't have the typical Hufflepuff personality. He is used to getting what he wants, most of the time, and used to being the best. It is his loyalty which placed him in Hufflepuff. He believes that nakamali ang "Sorting Hat". (The Sorting Hat made a mistake.) His schoolmates agree. He is rude and harsh, he has a lot of friends but is close to no one because he doesn't trust people as much as they don't trust him.

He might surprise you occasionally, by doing something really kind and good spontaneously. His mother wanted to make sure that they still keep and give emphasis on Filipino values. This is why he cares so much about his family. (His mother also tried instilling religion into him, but he doesn't really know if he believes in God.) He can also speak Filipino. Not as fluent as he speaks English, but he can. His mother used to sing Filipino lullabies to him, and she talks to him in Filipino while they are at home because she doesn't want him to forget her country. Filipino food is also one of his favorite things in the world. Despite this good side of his personality, he is still mataray (a jerk) and an anak mayaman (rich brat) who is used to having mommy and daddy do things for him. Doing good is instinct, being raised like that, but he only does when he absolutely has to.

Aiden is a compulsive liar. Sinungaling siya. He doesn't mean to, he just does it. He doesn't even realize it until after the words leave his mouth. Sometimes, people lie in order not to hurt others' feelings, or to get out of bad situations. Aiden lies kahit he doesn't need to.

Mahalaga sa kanya ang kanyang mag-anak at kaibigan (His family and friends mean the world to him.) He knows how to pick his battles, but is brave when he needs to be. The Sorting Hat told him that he's a bit of each of the four houses, which is why it took him too long to be sorted.

"My talk bubble normally looks different than how it is now," he lies effortlessly, "The real one is under construction. My user, LittleRedCrazyHood, she's a little colorblind, the poor thing. That's why my talk bubble sucks so much. Don't blame her."

skills and magical abilities
Lies: Aiden is a compulsive liar. It's not obvious though, because he is really, really good at lying to the point he starts to believe some of his own lies. He is also good at sensing if someone else is lying.

Transfiguration: Transfiguration is Aiden's favorite subject. He is very skilled at it, despite it being one of the more complex areas of magic.

Weather Spells: He's always had a knack for these, ever since he was little.

Wand: Aiden's wand is a Dragon Heartstring, Cedar, 11 inches. Garrick Ollivander believed that whenever he met one who carries a cedar wand, he found strength of character and unusual loyalty. His father, Gervaise Ollivander, used always to say, ‘you will never fool the cedar carrier,’ and he agrees: the cedar wand finds its perfect home where there is perspicacity and perception. Ollivander said that he would go further than his father, however, in saying that he has never yet met the owner of a cedar wand whom he would care to cross, especially if harm is done to those of whom they are fond. The witch or wizard who is well-matched with cedar carries the potential to be a frightening adversary, which often comes as a shock to those who have thoughtlessly challenged them.

*As Aiden is a compulsive liar, he feels no guilt when he lies, and sometimes, doesn't even realize it.
*He is not a pathological liar, meaning he tries to take into account others' feelings. (Read this for more info on the difference between pathological and compulsive.)
*Without realizing it, he is often humming a Filipino lullaby that his mother used to sing him, Sa Ugoy Ng Duyan.
*Aiden asked the Sorting Hat to put him in Ravenclaw, it did not agree, and told him that Hufflepuff would be the best choice. Aiden hates his house, because the Sorting Hat song talked about how Helga chose "the rest" which makes him feel like he wasn't special enough to belong in the other three, and that he's just normal.
*Aiden believes in horoscopes, but doesn't admit it because he doesn't want anyone to know he buys into even a little of all that Divination stuff.
