In case his username didn't give it away, Aaron Strider has used, sold, and grown pipe-weed, but the fun kind marijuana before, and he'll be doing it in Arda Marred because the mods are enablers. All posts in which it's mentioned will be under a cw: recreational drugs cut, and all comments with it mentioned in it will have the same warning in the subject line.

If you'd rather not have it mentioned to you, post here or send me a PM. This is meant to be light and comedic but handled realistically, and the last thing I want is to make anyone uncomfortable. If it comes up in a thread we're doing and you don't want it to, don't hesitate to contact me, on plurk or via PM or a comment to the journal.

Thanks! ♥

Name: Aaron Strider (also known as Nathan Camlost, and Doctor Strungout, and Nerd)
Canon: The Lord of the Rings, Middle-earth
AU: Modern AU with a good chunk of Echoes from Save the Earth

Pull-point: A few hours after he returns to Earth after going to space and resolving the conflict with the Enemy -- the Enemy being the boy

Age: 37

Gender/Sex: Man/male/clearly so

Appearance: 6'6", blue eyes, dark hair. Identically resembles Aragorn in the face but with shorter hair and clean-shaven (when he can be). He's often reserved, quiet, and often comes off as kind of creepy when something important is going on; his eyes are piercing and clear and don't help this one bit. However, he's been more open and friendly in Deepwood, because he recognizes that cooperation is necessary, and he's met a lot of people he likes. He dresses plainly and favors long coats in winter.
photo as requested, but with darker hair.

in-depth history can be found here.
Short version is that Aaron is a doctor who promised time to the military in exchange for scholarships, served on the front lines in Iraq, wandered the Middle East for a while, then came to a city in New Jersey to open a tiny, struggling charity clinic in the bad part of town. It was touch and go, and he did deal pipeweed on occasion to help cover supply costs, but it was satisfying work.

And then in 2013, aliens invaded the Earth. It was a whole thing. In response, Aaron began to regain memories of his past life as Aragorn, along with abilities and items that Aragorn had possessed. These echoes of a past life came and went, sometimes unpredictably. In December 2013, Aaron lost his echoes seemingly for good until January 2015, when they returned. The world had changed; the alien invasion and superpowered humans had gone public, the Lonely Mountain was in Las Vegas, and his best friend had turned into a bird the size of a horse.

Worse, the police shut down his clinic in April. Fortunately, Aaron had echoed back Aragorn's appearance, and between that and an un-subtle evil twin, he managed to avoid police capture until the full invasion in May. Aaron helped fight off the aliens with a ghost army, got some sweet duds, and went into space to fight the Big Bad with the power of love.

Born 1978
Graduated HS in 1996
Finished undergrad 1998
Finished medschool 2002
Four years of active duty until 2006, stationed in Saudi Arabia and deployed into Iraq for six-month periods
Inactive duty/residency 2010
Began the clinic in Locke 2010
Aliens invade April 2013
Echo loss December 2013
Echoes regained January 2015
Alien invasion end of April-beginning of May 2015

In-depth personality here. Aaron is a very good man who comes off as a very bad man. He's reserved and a bit grim, he prefers to listen than to speak, and he'll watch you from under a hoodie in an IHOP. He gets shit done and spares few words for frivolity -- except for when he does. Underneath the serious-business is wry humor and a deep love of poetry and history. Aaron can be a real windbag if you let him get going and he thinks you'd like to listen; he has so many stories to tell. Underneath that is a heart of gold that's only a little rough around the edges: Aaron Strider is one of the most standup guys you will ever meet, and he'll go to the ends of the earth for you if he thinks you need it and ask for nothing in return. Nothing triggery or noteworthy here, though he's had an on-and-off smoking addiction and, as mentioned before, has both sold weed and used it himself. He's kind of a hippie, deep down: he's just as intelligent and brave as Aragorn, but he seeks nonviolent solutions when he can. Willing to fight, good at it, but not happy to. Also, his BFF is a bird the size of a goddamn horse in case that triggers you idk.

Abilities: Complete list here.
-Modern training as a general practitioner as well as a combat medic
-The ability to move with silence and stealth, especially in terrain he knows well.
-The ability to read, write, and speak the Elvish languages he knew (Sindarin very fluently, Quenya less knowledgeably). He can also speak to animals and has good instincts for them, but he cannot understand them as well as an Elf does.
-Swordfighting skills that are literally the best of Aragorn's age
-Herblore, healing knowledge, and healing prayers/songs
-By putting an ear to the ground, Aaron can hear what's going on around him for miles, as it creates vibrations in the ground. Footsteps, subways, cars, anything striking the ground, he will hear.
-Mad hax tracking skills. No really.
-Dunadan physiology: sharp senses, superhuman endurance, an extended lifespan, and the ability to die on command
-The ability to freestyle like a baller, making up songs on the spot because he can
-Skill with disguises, accents, and acting

When brought over, Aaron had on him:
-The feathercrown
-The ring of Barahir
-The totally bitchin' set of armor he wore to the Black Gate
-The bracers he jacked from Boromir's dead body lol whoops
-Cuttings of athelas
-First aid/medical supplies, in small amounts
-NOT the star of the Dunedain, he gave that to a very special somebirdie
-The Lorien-cloak
-Possibly the standard of the Heirs of Elendil that Arwen made, idk yet
-A handgun
-NOT WEED why would he bring weed with him to space, jesus weed. because reasons. it's marijuana. cannabis. specifically, mids. for getting stoned.
-Spider-silk from the Grand Elusa, non-adhesive, strong. Some glows, some does not.
-Stores of food, preserved, kept in the Dwarven-halls
-Stores of healing herbs, gathered from the forest

Anything else: Seriously, check this post. It's a comprehensive list of everything having to do with Aragorn that Aaron has regained/remembered.
