The initial main character for the game. Like past leading characters Aden has the ability of an Earthmate through the use of a spirit wand. Under certain circumstances his best friend is forced to share his body. After a certain point in the game it is possible to quit playing as Aden, and play as his best friend Sonja.
He is a fairly easy going, and happy-go-lucky guy. He is sometimes incredibly dense, and he is often quite blunt. Despite this he is fairly caring, and will do anything to help someone out.
He is known as a bit of a busybody, constantly moving around.
He's a tad oblivious to the affections of others, particularly among girls with affection toward him. This is most evident during his friend/love cutscenes with Violet and Odette, both of whom attempt to take him on a date. Both dates end with limited success due almost exclusively to Aden's inability to comprehend, something which Sonja points out as to help the girls realize it his fault it failed, not theirs.
He is later revealed to be from 200 years from the past; a displacement caused when time magic was used by Pandora to summon the 4th Dragon princess, Sonja, but whose body was stolen by the Masked Man. Since she was summoned but did not have a body, Aden was chosen as a host. He opts to stay in the "present", believing that he fights for the island and people he loves, regardless of time. He also learns he is the Dragon Knight, protector of the Dragon Priestess'.
