Aaron is a part of a Terrorist far right group who target people of different race/religion. So far the group/Aaron have shown that they are white supremacists who claim to be "protecting" English traditions. Aaron and his associates have been antagonistic, confrontational, have committed violence on-screen or have been seen with bleeding knuckles/blood on clothes.


Backstory

Aaron is Harvey’s criminally violent and racist son, who initially seemed confident and that he liked to get his own way. Very quickly it was clear that Aaron is a bully and a bigot. He’s close to his dad who raised him alone but as soon as Aaron landed a city job in finance, he left home and didn’t look back. Harvey knew about Aaron's violence and racism but believed he had put all that behind him - later Aaron brags to an associate that he had tricked his father into thinking this. Things between Aaron and his sister Dana are strained and she often feels shut out by him. Aaron is clearly angered by Dana's relationship with Bobby Beale as Bobby is a muslim. Though Aaron is fiercely loyal, his arrogance often becomes his biggest asset and downfall in equal measure. When he waltzes into Walford to check out his family’s new set up, a few things catch his eye and he decides to hang around.

Storylines
