- "They think I'm a man out of control... but I've never had so much control."
- ―Aiden Pearce
|Voiced by||Noam Jenkins|
Aiden Pearce is the primary protagonist in the upcoming video game Watch Dogs. He is a highly-skilled computer hacker and ex-Fixer who has access to the CtOS of Chicago through the use of a device called a Profiler, and is obsessed with surveillance, protection and control. People that he loved were afflicted in the past and are being attacked once more, so he has become a vigilante in an attempt to prevent this. His obsession has reached the point where he even monitors his own family, although they are not aware of this. He has been described as in a "gray area".
Pearce is a Northern Irish male with medium-length brown hair. He has been shown wearing black boots, jet black jeans, a white/light grey sweater, a brown leather trench coat with the Watch_Dogs symbol incorporated in the upper back stiching and also featured on his black-brown baseball cap. He also wears a Vigilante Mask with a white stylized "Z" over his nose and mouth to protect his identity.
[ the "stylized Z" is actually The Electronic Schematic Symbol of a "Broken Resistor"].
As revealed in the E3 Gameplay Video, Pearce is 39 years old and was born in Belfast, Northern Ireland, but is a naturalized American citizen who has a warrant out for his arrest. His record also indicates that the police have been warned of his status as a vigilante. He grew up in rough neighborhoods and is presumably accustomed to violence.
Pearce's criminal past led to a violent family tragedy, which has imposed him into gaining control of the entire city of Chicago. Using the city as his weapon, Pearce is out on a quest to hunt the people responsible for hurting his family.
In order to protect his loved ones from harm, he monitors them 24/7 in secret. Unfortunately, his family will be endangered once again, so Pearce will take justice into his own hands, confronting a corrupt system, using every weapon available to him.
