Overall, Aaron’s a generally friendly guy, well-liked by his peers. He cares deeply for others, sometimes being a bit overprotective of his loved ones or controlling of them, especially of his younger sister, Michelle. Sometimes he even comes off as childish, liking to get his way and even being a sore loser. He likes being around others , keeping his inner negative feelings to himself, sometimes forgetting about them only so they can hit him unexpectedly later. Because of this he’s not one to accept help or admit defeat, being hypocritical in the sense that he’s always going out of his way to help others.
As the oldest, Aaron’s always put much responsibility and expectations on himself and what he must do or become. He was heavily inspired by his father, thinking of alchemy as something great and something that can help people. He’s a natural with alchemy, it coming very easily to him; he prides himself on his skills. He wishes to follow in his father’s footsteps and works himself hard to be able to do so. He can be arrogant at times because of this, but it’s just masking his self-doubt and uncertainty about himself and what he’s supposed to live up to; he’s afraid of failing or letting anyone down.
Aaron is always willing to help anyone in need, putting others before himself without a second thought. This can lead him to sometimes neglect his own needs or health, and can become easily stressed or exhausted as he often overworks himself as well.

He loves taking care of them and has grown a lot of patience over the years of dealing with such a hectic family. He likes being depended on and to feel needed, wanting to feel of worth or of importance so his self-doubt doesn’t linger. He prefers to keep himself occupied, disliking being by himself or just sitting around.
Aaron’s someone who likes to know what he’s doing and where he’s going, afraid of the unpredictable. While he’s not someone who’s ill-prepared for that sort of thing, it can bring about his self-doubt to be caught off guard, especially when taking leadership positions. He can feel he has failed when things go wrong when he planned them differently.

Aaron was born in Resembool, Amestris in November of 1919. With there being no clinics or hospitals nearby, a home birth was the only option. Aaron was delivered at home with the help of Pinako, his great grandmother. A year and a half later, Michelle, Aaron’s younger sister is born.
By the time that Aaron turns four, Pinako falls ill from her old age, and the reality starts approaching that she will pass away. Pinako tells Winry that she shouldn’t have to be cooped up in Resembool for the rest of her life, and that she should expand on her automail studies and live her dream. After her passing, Winry, Ed, Aaron and Michelle come to the decision to move to Rush Valley, where Winry is already well-known and can be successful in her automail business. Ed and Winry continue to raise Aaron and Michelle in in their new home as Winry opens up her own business, the shop attached to their house.
When Aaron was younger, he tended to be a little bit of a mama’s boy. He would follow Winry around and help her in whatever way he could around the house or in the kitchen. Oftentimes he could be found helping Winry with everyday chores. This slight clinginess, however, is something he soon grows out of.
As Aaron grows up, Ed and Winry decide that they want to further expand their family; it is within the next few years that two more of his siblings are born. His younger brother, Christopher, is born when he’s six years old, and then another younger sister, Elizabeth, is born when he’s eight. As the family grows, Aaron becomes an eager and excited older brother. He loves the idea of having a large family and very much enjoys being the oldest child, and as such he was often times tasked with the job of babysitting them or taking care of them, giving him a close bond with each one. However, his closest bond is with Michelle, the two being closest in age and often needing to look after things together; Aaron’s also more protective of her—whether Michelle likes it or not.
Ed is avidly continuing his studies on alchemy despite his inability to preform it; he continues to work for the country as a State Alchemist with the new revision of the State Alchemy program, receiving grants for his research. With alchemy playing a major role in Ed’s life, it ended up rubbing off on Aaron. Looking up to his father and seeing his dedication, Aaron became inspired and wanted to begin learning alchemy, too. Ed started teach Aaron the basic principles of alchemy at the age of eight; Aaron quickly picked up on the theories and concepts, being a bit of a prodigy, and Ed helped him continue to further his studies as he became older. Alchemy soon became a major role in Aaron’s life, strengthening a close bond with his father as well as using it as a method to be able to help others.
When Aaron was 13, he met a girl named Isabelle while on his way back from receiving some spare supplies for Winry at the LeCoulte’s house within the canyon. She appeared to be lost and introduced herself, explaining that she and her father had moved to Rush Valley recently for his automail business. She loved exploring and rock climbing, but she could be careless and distracted, ending up lost. Aaron helped her find her way out of the canyon and back into the city; realizing they were attending the same school, they began seeing more of each other, their friendship starting. They enjoyed exploring and being outdoors together, and when high school came around, Aaron and Isabelle even ended up in the same private academy in Silvermount, Amestris—a town just minutes away from Rush Valley by train. The two began dating not long after the start of high school.
Aaron picked up on housework as he grew, often taking care of his younger siblings and helping to take a load off his busy parents. He wanted to be able keep his parents from becoming overwhelmed when they were busy with their own work, so he put it upon himself as well as with the responsibility they entrusted him with. He began cooking to help out with patients and his overall family, finding enjoyment from it.
Aaron continues to further his studies as he grows up, one day aspiring to become a great alchemist like his father and to work in the Central City State Alchemy Research Center as a State Alchemist. However, the closer he comes to achieving this, the more pressure he feels falling upon him. He feels as if he has much to live up to with who his father has and what he’s done. He expects a lot of himself, not wanting to let anyone down. He hopes to use alchemy to help the country in the same way that his father is doing, afraid of failing. Despite doubt, he continues to strive for his goal, never giving up.
