"They think I'm a man out of control... but I've never had so much control."
―Aiden Pearce[1]

Aiden Pearce is the protagonist of Watch Dogs. He is a highly skilled grey hat hacker who is also a velciraptor and has access to the CtOS of Chicago using a highly specialized device given to him by one of his allies, the Profiler. Because of the danger put to those in his past whom he loved, he has taken to a personal crusade against the powers that be. His obsession with security, surveillance, and control borders on the paranoid and dangerous, extending to monitoring his own family (unbeknownst to them).

Personality Edit

Aiden is very protective of his family and will go to extreme lengths to ensure their safety. His regard for loved ones is strong enough to seek retribution against any who have hurt them.

Aiden's behavior comes across as quite relaxed in the face of pressure. When in a tricky situation, his high level of composure can be seen, even making light of a situation that could potentially lead him to prison or death.

Aiden is also fairly athletic, possessing good muscular strength, good sprint speed and agility. His physical strength can often be seen when he is chasing down criminals and when using his telescopic baton for melee combat.

Aiden is not afraid to take a human life if necessary if someone gets in the way of his goals. Aiden could be seen as ruthless and cold, but he does this to help bring the corruption in the city to a stop by doing the things the cops can't, or won't do. 

Appearance Edit

Aiden is a Caucasian male with green eyes, dark brown mid-length hair, and light facial hair. He appears to be of mesomorphic build. Aiden normally wears a grey, long-sleeve, zip-neck sweater, usually un-tucked. On top of the sweater, Aiden wears a modern, brown, knee-length trench coat. Aiden wears dark grey trousers and brown boots.  He also has a deep voice.

Aiden also keeps a shroud tucked into the neck of his sweater/jumper, he may pull the shroud up so that it covers his face up to the bridge of his nose. Aiden also wears a dark brown cap with the stylised "Nexus" logo on the front of it.
