|First appearance||5 Days a Stranger|
|Affiliation(s)||Ministry of Occultism|
Little is known about AJ prior to the events of the game, besides the fact that he was sent by the Ministry of Occultism to investigate the strange occurrences surrounding DeFoe Manor. At the time, the mansion's history was not that well-known, and the Ministry dispatched him without knowing the threat that the spirit manipulating the house possessed. AJ was the first of five people to be trapped in DeFoe Manor. While a prisoner, he does not tell anyone about his occupation and remains a mystery to the other people trapped in the house. When the cat burglar Trilby, the last of the five to enter the house arrives, AJ is scared by his masked face and runs away. When Trilby is told to gather all five for a house meeting, he does not manage to find AJ, and they go on without him. The next day, Trilby notices a blurry shape at the bottom of the pool in the front yard. Draining the pool, he finds AJ's corpse chained to the bottom, his throat slashed by a giant knife-like weapon. Simone Taylor and Trilby recover his wallet, in which they find his many fake ID cards.
