Aaron Darnell is a vampire which is introduced to the series in Stolen. He is kidnapped along with Elena Michaels, Savannah Levine, Eve Levine and Ruth Winterbourne by a group of scientists led by Tyrone Winsloe but was later saved by Paige Winterbourne and the inter-racial council. He is described as tall (6' 2"), broad shouldered, tanned, with sandy blond hair and a ruggedly handsome face. He is two hundred years old. He was killed by a stab wound when confronting a man attempting to mug someone. At first, he had no intention of living past a year as he refuses to kill another just to prolong his existence. However, he encounters Cassandra DuCharme, a fellow vampire, who convinces him to live by killing bad or sick people. The two begin to date despite their age difference but Cassandra hands him to a mob and flees, leaving Aaron to die. Since then, the two have not spoken until their reunion at the compound. He works as a bricklayer and is well connected in the vampire world. Aaron now serves on the interracial council as the vampire delegate alongside Cassandra.
He was one of the last people kidnapped before they broke out of the compound.
