AJ often socially withdraws and is hesitant to become close to people. He does not make friends easily and can often sabotage his own efforts at developing meaningful relationships.

AJ steals things not out of greed, but out of a compulsion to do so and for reasons that he's not likely to discuss.
He has no distinguishing marks as of yet.
AJ has hemophilia, a blood disorder that prevents proper clotting of a cut or wound. He is currently on medication that is both expensive and likely only to be found in core world medical facilities.
