Played by NO ACTOR – BOOK CHARACTER
A NEW DAWN
Indoctrinated into a world of ‘power and chaos’, this zealous young man was once a member of the Roaches tribe alongside Emma and her siblings, Shannon and Tiffany. However, after being captured by the Fallen, he was traded to the Zootists and brainwashed into the religion of Zoot. Aras remembers very little of his time within the Roaches, indeed, his brainwashing is so thorough that it even takes a significant amount of time to remember his own name. Names and identities do not matter – all that matters is Zoot.
Encountering Ebony sees Aras shocked to his core as he learns of her own involvement with Zoot. He soon becomes her most closest supporter and protector, choosing her side when Ebony tries to protect the Mall Rats from the insane Guardian.
Though he begins to shake off the indoctrination after the big battle within the Mall, Aras no longer feels like he can return to Emma or what is left of the Roaches. He remains at Ebony’s side, awaiting her commands, knowing that she alone holds to the true path of ‘power and chaos’.
