Aaron is the troubled nephew of Matt Hunter who comes to live with him and his family after getting into some trouble in his hometown of Seattle. He was held back a year and should be a sophomore but is in his freshman year. He makes his first appearance at Courtney's back-to-school party and right off the back, meets and annoys Cassidy Quartermaine and Samara Jones. He appears to have a thing for Cassidy but she is shown to think he is simply just annoying. He is a loner mostly, not liking to get close to others and has issues with cousin Josh Hunter and his best friend Gabe McBain because they are arrogant jocks, something Aaron isn't a fan of. Despite not being a fan of sports, Aaron loves kick boxing and uses it to get his anger out and could likely beat anyone his age in a fight.
Very little is known about Aaron's background other than he was born and raised in Seattle, Washington to a single mother. He has had several run-ins with the law for low-level offenses including vandalism and trespassing. Due to his truancy his freshman year, he got held back and is now repeating it, making him 16 instead of 14 and 15 like other freshman. After his mother had a hard time keeping up with him, she reached out to her brother Matt in Port Charles who agreed to let Aaron stay with them for a while to see if they can get his behavior under control.
