Aiden Pearce

No, this isn't a hacking by Aiden to get some recognition (maybe), but me, Satamer, as I do believe that beyond the cold, monotone personality, he has the heart and powers deserving of this award. Without further ado lets get on to this award.

Origin of Aiden Pearce:
Aiden Pearce has been compared to Walter White by Watch_Dog's creative director Jonathan Morin due to them both thinking they are doing the right thing for their families but actually come off as a bit self-centered. He came to America from Ireland  with his sister and mother to escape his father and grew up in a rough neighbourhood where he found a love of cars and hockey. Eventually, he became part of a criminal gang and paid to learn how to wield weapons and combat enemies of his. At one point in his career he became affiliated with Damien Brenks and they became partners.

Evolution of Aiden Pearce:
Over the course of the game, Aiden becomes more aware of what he is doing and how it is hurting people but is still fixated in finding out why Lena's death happened and goes to incredible lengths to do so. He learns new skills both in real life and hacking and gains friends throughout the game but also pushes some aways. He has 7 different outfits - two of which can be unlocked by DLC missions (one is only on PS4), while the rest are unlocked via specific preorder editions.

Watch_Dogs: released (World Wide) on May 27th, 2014 on Playstation 4/Xbox One/PC/PS3/Xbox 360/ released (North America) on November 18th, 2014/(Europe) on November 21st, 2014 on Wii U

Well, that's it for Aiden Pearce but, as always, if I've missed something out or made a mistake then please don't hesitate to comment! Or if you want a specific character to win the award then please comment as well!

Thanks for reading, Satamer.
