- "Assassins, Templars, two organizations that want to instill their own will on the world; Assassins claim they want freedom for all, Templar claim to wield the power to control all the known world. I figure 'eh nobody's messing with my head, y'know I'd rather die,' but instead I decided do something with myself and finally threw in with my current associates, and that's why I am an Assassin."

Aaron Davis (born 1996), colloquially known as A.J., was a American brotherhood of Assassins and a descendant of numerous familial lines that had sworn an allegiance to the Assassins; including individuals such as Ragnar Lothbrok, Emánuel Dănuț, Emilio Venier, James Denton, Rosa and Curtis Grant.
Early in his life, he joined the Templar Order under the beguiled guidance of his father Aaron Bryant, but as he aged he became more open-minded and disobedient, eventually leading to his encounter with the Assassin Brian de Oliveira in 2010.
Aaron was born in Tacoma, Washington on the military base there, in the United States. His father Aaron Bryant, an enlisted officer in the Army and a member of the Templars beguiled his young son into a commitment to the Templars at the age of two, his mother and sisters were unaware of such a commitment.
Even after his parents divorced, as he aged Aaron subconsciously carried out his father's bidding, it wasn't until mid-2010, at the age of fourteen that he realized what he was doing, and began to completely resent his father.
Personality and characteristicsEdit
As a child Aaron had shy and reclusive tendencies, often sitting indoors while other kids would play outside, usually until his mother forced him outdoors; these tendencies made him out to be a loner, an attribute that would save him many times in his adult life. Although he liked being a loner most of the time he did not mind the company of others.
Aaron's most distant known ancestor was Ragnar Lodbrok, a legendary Norse ruler, Assassin and hero from the Viking Age on his mother's side of the family who was an , and Durante Alighieri, an Italian poet on his father's side. Alighieri's son Pietro, was next in line of his paternal ancestry. Dante and Pietro were also members of the Liberalis Circulum, an Assassin organization.
Aaron's bloodline also extended to Wallachia, where his ancestor Emánuel Dănuț served as an ally and was a cousin to Vlad Tepes III, also known as Vlad the Impaler. Two generations later, his other ancestor Niccoló Venier was born, a figure in the Roman Brotherhood. Niccoló and his wife Marisa gave birth to his next ancestor Emilio, who would become Mentor of the Assassin Order some time after Ezio Auditore's retirement. Late in his life, Emilio married an Wallachian-born woman known as Aquila, who became Aaron's ancestor after conceiving one of their children, a daughter named Selena.
- Aaron Bryant's name is based on the real name of Jacen Fett and real life father.
