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.
