Early Life

Aaron Phone

Aaron at work

Aaron was an insurance inspector, who worked for the Umbrella Health insurance company. As a subordinate of William Easton, the senior vice president of the companie's department for membership and claims, Aaron and his colleagues - Emily, Gena, Dave, Shelby and Josh - were responsible for checking each client's request for insurance for any errors that could justify the companie's refusal of bearing the treatment costs. Therefore, he and his colleagues were ultimately targeted by John Kramer, better known as the Jigsaw Killer, who was a former client of Umbrella himself. (Saw VI)



The victims on the carousel

One day, all six of them were abducted and taken to the abandoned Rowan Zoological Institute by Detective Mark Hoffman, John Kramer's successor after his death, who chained them to a spinning carousel inside one of the former animal enclosures. When they woke up, they immediately panicked, as they were surrounded by darkness. As they discussed the situation, they suddenly heard the voice of William from outside the room, who was trapped at the zoo as well. While Shelby tried to explain their situation, the others yelled at William that he should save them. Once William entered the room, the lights turned on. As William approached them and they asked why they were there, he responded that they were all part of some kind of game. Seconds later, a TV turned on in front of them and a mechanical ventriloquist puppet appeared on the screen. The puppet introduced William to his test and explained him the rules of this game. A rigged shotgun was positioned in front of the carousel, which would stop periodically, resulting in one of his associates sitting directly in front of the shotgun's barrel. This victim would be killed after a few seconds if William didn't decide to save that person. In order to do so, he would have to simultaneously press two buttons in a small box before him. However, he could only save two of them, while the other four would inevitably die. After William received his instructions, the TV turned off again.

Seconds later, the carousel came to a standstill for the first time, with Aaron sitting in front of the shotgun. He desperately tried to convince William to follow his business policy, according to which Aaron was worth living as he was a young and healthy man. Due to William's hesitation, he panicked even further and yelled at him. William, however, still couldn't bring himself to press the buttons in the box, which would have saved Aaron's life, leading to him being the first one to be killed by the shotgun. (Saw VI)


The zoo was found and raided by the Metropolitan Police Department shortly afterwards. As the police secured and searched the entire building, they discovered the many corpses of Jigsaw's victims, including Aaron. All of them were sent to the morgue, where Dr. Adam Heffner performed the autopsies on their bodies. The events surrounding the massacre were later reported to the public by the news channels. (Saw VI, 3D)


To a certain degree, Aaron was a quite ruthless individual, as his work ruined and, in some cases, cost the lives of numerous seriously sick people, whose treatment costs weren't beared by the company. When faced with his own impending death, he used the wrongful business policy of Umbrella in his attempt to convince William Easton to save him, believing that he was worth to survive more than his colleagues.
