Aaron is a fictional character from the Saw franchise as well as a minor character in Saw VI.

He was portrayed by James Gilbert.


Early Life

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 Umbrella's department for membership and claims, Aaron worked alongside five other inspectors - Emily, Gena, Dave, Shelby, and Josh. Together, they checked each client's request for insurance for any errors that could justify the 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 of them were abducted and taken to the abandoned Rowan Zoological Institute by Detective Mark Hoffman, John Kramer's successor after his death. He chained all of them to a spinning carousel inside one of the former animal enclosures. When they woke up, they immediately panicked, as darkness surrounded them. Upon discussing the circumstances, they suddenly heard William's voice from outside the room. While Shelby tried to explain their situation to him, the others yelled at William that he should save them. Once William entered the room, the lights turned on. As he approached them and they asked why they were there, William responded that they were all part of a game. Seconds later, a TV turned on in front of them, and a mechanical ventriloquist puppet appeared on-screen. The doll introduced William to his test and explained the rules of this game to him. 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. It would shoot the victim after a few seconds if William didn't save the respective person. To do so, he would have to press two buttons in a small box before him at once. 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. Because of 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, leading to Aaron being the first one to be killed by the shotgun. (Saw VI)


The Metropolitan Police Department found and raided the zoo shortly afterward. 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, Saw 3D)


To a certain degree, Aaron was a ruthless individual, as his work ruined and, in some cases, cost the lives of numerous sick people whose treatment costs weren't borne by the insurance company. When faced with his 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.
