Aru Shah and the End of Time

Aiden Acharya walked in front of Aru Shah after she read a letter from Mini. He just enrolled in Aru's school the previous week, Aru found that weird since winter break was just about to start. Apparently, Aru found Aiden attractive and was thinking of him when she accidentally bumped into his backpack. According to Poppy Lopez, the Acharyas were super rich, Aru was nervous about talking to him since she actually found him good-looking. Aiden was with his mother and he saw Aru smiling and falling down, so he went over to say hi. But Aru was so nervous she said that she knows where he lives from demons and runs home. On the following Saturday, Aiden was surprised at witnessing a massive wolf carrying a heavy golden bow and arrow, the wolf changed into a girl before changing into a bluebird and flying off. Aru was confused that he was able to see something from the Otherworld.

Aru Shah and the Song of Death

Aiden Acharya joined Aru Shah, Mini, and Brynne Rao on their quest to prove their innocence in stealing Kamadeva's bow and arrow. Aiden revealed to Aru that he knew she was a Pandava because he used his camera to zoom in on her weapon, Vajra. Aiden took a kit of UNIDENTIFIED NECESSITIES from the Warehouse of Quest Materials. When Brynne called upon giant gazelles representing the four winds, Aiden chose East. While flying, Aiden revealed that his parents were getting divorced, his mother was Malini the apsara, and now a microbiologist and his dad is a lawyer. When Kamadeva's swan attacked them, Aiden used two scimitars from his arm braces as weapons.
