Character Spotlight: Aiden St. Delphi


So JLA fangirl that I am, it is really hard to believe that I have not done a character spotlight for Aiden St. Delphi yet, but I have not. I figure now is a good a time as any to spotlight this wonderful boy who has stolen my heart. In my opinion Aiden is the star of Jennifer L. Armentrout’s Covenant series. Please note, there are some pretty big spoilers included in this post.

Aiden St. Delphi is one of those characters that I fell in love with quickly. It didn’t take much of Half Blood for me to realize that this book boyfriend was a keeper. I was right, because he continued to get better and better. Although his presence was lacking in Pure, the moments he was there were amazing. Then we have the awesomeness that is Deity. I do not think I have the right words to adequately describe how much I loved this boy in that book. He was just absolutely perfect. Then I read this little novella called Elixir from Aiden’s point of view and well, it killed me. Everything great about Aiden was amplified and I loved getting inside his head. I don’t think I have ever read about a character who is more devoted than Aiden. He takes devotion to a whole different level. There is literally nothing he will not do when it comes to Alex.

As readers, I think we could all plainly see that Aiden loved Alex and that his resistance was for her safety and not any other stupid reason. However, if anyone had doubts, well the end of Pure should have cleared them up. Aiden commits what is considered a huge crime against the Covenant, all so Alex will remain safe. Then we have Deity, where Aiden literally breaks rule after rule and all for Alex. I won’t even go into them because there is just so much. Elixir though, really proves this without a doubt. For anyone who was left doubting that is. He makes some very tough choices on behalf of Alex; choices that will forever leave a mark on him.

Now, Aiden is not simply the kind of hero that swoops in and saves the day all the time. He knows that Alex is strong and that she can handle herself. He does not doubt her, but he also will not let her deal with things alone. He will stand by her side no matter what. Alex comes first, and that is the end of it.

All in all, Aiden is simply one of those characters that cannot be forgotten. He has wormed his way into my heart and will not be leaving any time soon!

Favorite Aiden Quotes:

“Because I love you, we share each other’s problems. When we fight, we fight together. I’m going to be by your side no matter what, whether you like it or not. That’s what love is, Alex. You never have to face anything alone again. And I get what you’re saying. I don’t agree with it, but I will support you in any way I can.” – Deity

“Apollo had said he knew what this kind of love was capable of. And I finally understood why Paris has risked his country and his blood for Helen. Selfish, yes, but I understood. I would burn down the world if that meant Alex would be safe.” – Elixir

“I can’t keep pretending that I don’t want this – that I don’t want you. I can’t. Not after what happened to you. I thought… I thought I’d lost you, Alex, forever. And I would’ve lost everything. You are my everything.” –Deity

“You’ll have a piece of my heart – all of it, really. Forever. Even if your heart belongs to someone else.” -Deity

"You’ll become the center of someone’s world one day. And he’ll be the luckiest son of a bitch on this earth." -Pure

  5. I haven't read the series but Aiden does sound like the perfect man. The series sounds very good. I will put it on my to read list. Too bad some of these fantasy characters can't be real.
