Usually shy, quiet and reserved in front of people he's not close with, Aristotle is the exact opposite when he's with those he trusts. Though it might not be easy to for him to open up at first, if people give him enough time and a reason to be comfortable around them, he'll be energetic and outgoing — something that most people think he's not capable of. Past experiences (bullying) has led him to become like this, whereas he was an animated and cheerful child before. Now closed off and introverted so as to avoid future altercations with people who might take advantage of his stature, Aristotle still longs for the day when he'll be able to step out of his comfort zone to come. Confident and not giving a damn what people thinks of him — that's the kind of person Ari hopes to become.

Born in Palo Alto, California, Aristotle is a single child raised by a single American muggle-born witch. His mother, Lydia Claremont, attended Ilvermorny as a child and was very adept at magic, but decided to pursue a career in the muggle world instead, returning to her roots. Now a successful left-wing politician, she has made a name for herself and determined to create a good future for her son (whose certain Jewish Israeli father abandoned them, but oh well). Which is why, when the opportunity presented itself, Lydia agreed to send Aristotle - or Ari - as she fondly calls him, to Ilvermorny when he got his letter. She thought that it was only a matter of time, not after she saw her son magically repairing a vase he toppled (to not anger momma) with her very own eyes when the kid was 9.

Aristotle was sorted to Pukwudgie when he got to Ilvermorny, and everything was all nice and swell. He made a couple of friends, and he his first year went off without a hitch. During his second year, though, things took quite a turn. He defended a first year student from a group of fourth year Wampus bullies, and earned their ire. Since then, he became the target of their pranks and harrassments, and none of the other students helped him (lest they dare to be targeted as well). He felt alone and miserable, effectively erasing the outgoing and energetic kid Aristotle once was, and instead he learned how to put up walls and shelter himself.

But things didn't stop there. The final straw happened during the tail-end of the academic year, when one of the bullies performed the Cruciatus curse on Aristotle. When word got out of the incident, the school authorities, and Aristotle's mother - who knew nothing about what was happening to her child - stepped in. Ari was in so much pain that his mother immediately wanted to transfer him out of Ilvermorny and into a muggle school. But after recovering, the boy expressed his interest in continuing his magical education, but in a different school this time. It took some convincing, but Lydia eventually agreed and decided to enroll her son in Hogwarts, across the Atlantic. There, Aristotle began his third year.
