In the looks department, Aiden is an average guy through and through. He wears simple t-shirts and jeans whenever he can, makes no attempts to tame his wavy hair, and shaves his face daily as part of his morning routine. When he is teaching, he puts a little bit of effort by wearing a long-sleeved button-up and slacks. He has no scars or tattoo, but he has a birthmark in the shape of a S-shaped blob on his lower back. Interests|
He stands at the white male average height of 5"10 and has a lanky build, which often makes him seem like the younger brother rather than the older one. He only works out when his friends prod him to go with them, so he isn't in the best shape. He is also rather pale because of his tendency of staying indoors.

Aiden is an admirer of the English language and somewhat of a romantic because of it. He understands the power of words and how they can have a large effect on people depending on what was said. Therefore, he is very careful with his words unless he is feeling nervous, which seems to throw his mental dictionary out the door. At the same time, he is rather sensitive to what people say about him and feels insecure easily when ill things are said of him.
If asked, Aiden will say that he generally likes people. He likes to have faith in humanity and their capability of doing good. So he tries to keep an open mind about others and learn their side of the story before passing any judgement. But he is still human, so he is still prone to wrong judgement and it is hard for him to change it once he makes it.
Being the son of a teacher, Aiden grew up to become an advocate of education. He always took his studies seriously and was an A/B student, his weakest subject being science. His father was strict and originally wanted Aiden to work at the sites with him, but gave up once he saw that his son wasn't cut out for physical labor. On the other hand, his mother is delighted that Aiden will be following her footstep and by becoming a teacher. A Memory|
During his time in university, he fell in love with a girl and they began dating. After their graduation, they found an apartment together and he began working as a librarian in between the times he wasn't substitute teaching. His life wasn't quite where he wanted it, but it was a start.
After four years of dating, she broke up with him and moved out of their apartment. Soon, he decided to move as well. Everything there reminded him of her and he needed a change of pace. Fortunately, he found an ad for a room at Suncrest Heights and decided to apply for it.
He wanted to move as soon as possible.
The beginning of his failed relationship:Struggles|
A gorgeous girl with long, sandy blonde hair and sunkissed skin walked into the classroom and it was a miracle that she had decided to take the seat next to him. She flashed him a sweet smile and he already felt himself melting. His palms were sweating as he attempted to smile back at her, which was apparently more funny than charming as she made a strange face before laughing. Her laugh sent shivers down his spine.
Thoroughly embarrassed, he focused his attention at the professor lecturing about Ernest Hemingway. He refused to let himself look at her,
even though he could feel her gaze on him. When the excruciating long hour of class was over, he stayed in his seat a little longer to ensure he did not have to interact with the girl once more. When he thought it was safe, he picked up his stuff and got out of his seat.
A folded piece of paper fell from the top of his binder. He could guess what it was, but he didn't believe it. He slowly opened it up.
"(XXX) XXX-XXXX - Val"
He tucked the paper in his pocket, and hummed a little as he left the classroom to meet his friends.
Aiden has just gotten dumped by his girlfriend of four years and isn't handling it well at all. If he is not at work, he is often listening to sad break up music in his room and groaning. Also, it turns out she left him for one of his mates so he has been disassociating himself from his normal group of friends.Family|
- Father: James Langford, a construction worker of a few words. He loves his family but doesn't show it very often which lead to tension between him and Aiden. They're working on it.
- Mother: Ashley Langford, a fourth grade teacher who loves to dote on her students and her sons. Aiden is admittedly a mama's boy and keeps in touch with her regularly.
- Brother: Jake Langford, his younger brother who is currently playing basketball on a collegiate level and Aiden is very proud of him. Jake had always been the more athletic of the brothers which used to lead to conflicts when they were younger but now they are supportive of each other.
