Aiken is one of the 10,000 players who were trapped in «Sword Art Online». He's a sword-wielding projectile user that achieved the highest player kills. His real name is Eric McNancy. 



Aiken's avatar in ALO

A teenager diagnosed with PTSD after a gruesome and horrifying car accident, Eric became absorbed in MMO's as a way to avoid his syndrome. When Sword Art Online came out, Eric was one of the first people to buy the game. In SAO, Aiken was one the best players, despite it being his first VRMMO. Skilled in the knowledge of MMO's in general and having a raised reaction speed, Aiken stayed in every boss raid and dungeon clearing group until floor 23, when his best friend, Selwyn, was killed by PKers. Aiken then shifted his focus from clearing the game to hunting down every single PKer in SAO.

After SAO, Eric almost lost his mind and it was only through the help of his former SAO guild members that Eric was able to recover his sanity. At the suggestion of Josh, Eric's friend, he starts to play ALO after a patch that intoduces bows and crossbows to the game is released. Aiken is awarded a special avatar by the game for having the highest amount of player kills in SAO. 


Aiken is a very serious and intense character, not letting up his guard for even a second while in game. In real life, Aiken shows an appreciation for humor and a tendency to get into trouble often.  He puts a lot of blame on himself, whether it's events in-game or the mistakes he makes in real life. He has an adventurer's spirit and finds great joy in discovering new areas of the game.

Aiken is based on a character in the fan fiction, Right Back At It Again.
