Part of my fantasy witching high school BL universe~ Aiden from the Witching House of Kaleidos holds the power of astral fire. He is a hard-working, fiesty, and playful character who's much quicker to react than to think. He's had everything handed to him on a silver spoon, and realizes he needs to work doubly hard to be top of class!
