If I become Heda, I pledge my loyalty to the thirteenth clan.
— Aden to Clarke [src]

Aden was a recurring character in the third season of The 100. He debuted in Ye Who Enter Here.

Early Life Edit

Born a Nightblood, he was brought to Polis where he was taught how to fight and trained for the Conclave with the possibility of becoming the Commander.

Throughout the Series Edit

In Ye Who Enter Here, Aden is briefly seen sparring with Lexa. Lexa praises him during their sparring session and later tells Titus that Aden was a better fighter than she was at his age.

In Watch the Thrones, Aden is among the Nightbloods listening to Lexa speak before she fights Roan. When the rest of the Nightbloods are called away by Titus, Lexa calls Aden back to introduce him to Clarke. Lexa refers to him as the most promising of the Nightbloods and is confident that if she should die, her spirit would pick him to succeed her as the next Commander. Aden assures Clarke of the safety of her people should he become Commander.

Aden watches Lexa's fight with Roan along with the other Nightbloods. When the fight is over, Aden is relieved to see Lexa has survived.

In Thirteen, Aden is with the other Nightbloods as Lexa addresses them on Ascension Day before Semet interrupts them.

In Stealing Fire, Aden is seen conducting the purification ritual with the other natblidas before the conclave. Clarke comes to see him and asks him if he'll still support her people. He says he and the other nightbloods all will as Lexa made them vow it. Sadly, Aden is killed by Ontari who murders the nightbloods while they sleep in order to win the conclave.

Personality Edit

Aden appeared to be a polite, kind and genuine boy when he spoke to Clarke about what should happen if he becomes Heda. He also seems to genuinely care about Lexa.

Physical Appearance Edit

Aden is a scrawny young boy with messy, sandy blonde hair and blue eyes. He was average height for his age. He is usually seen wearing light armor consisting of a long sleeve black shirt, black pants, black boots, and a vest.

Relationships Edit

Lexa Edit

Lexa was Aden's mentor during his time training as a Nightblood in Polis. After a sparring session, she praises him for being a better fighter than she was at his age. She also believed him to be the most promising of the Nightbloods.

Aden promises Lexa that if he becomes Heda, he would continue protecting Skaikru if she were to die in her fight with Roan. He is happy and relieved when she wins the fight.
