Aiden Caldwell is a main character and the protagonist of Dying Light 2.


It is unknown when and where exactly Aiden was born but it can theorized that he was born either in the year 2013 or 2016 before or during the Harran Virus pandemic that eventually spread across the world. At one point his father saved his life and told him never to forget who he was. Aiden Caldwell is an infected survivor in an infected world. Caldwell has exceptional agility and brutal combat skills that make him a powerful ally and a valuable commodity in this dangerous world. He can achieve things no one else can, enter places no one else dares. With his unique abilities, Aiden has the power to be an agent of change within this decaying metropolis.

Aiden is a member of an outcast group known as the Pilgrims. They constantly wander the world and are compared to ronin and Old West desperadoes. Aiden goes to the City in search of his sister, Mia, who is the key to the past he cannot remember and who Aiden truly is.[1][2]

it can be speculated that because of Aiden's parkour, combat skills and increasing infection during the night he is theoretically superhuman but the factors of those abilities are yet to be determined (most likely untrue because of a recent leak showcasing the inventory where Aiden is without a face mask,proving he has no volatile mandibles, the possibility of him being halvely mutated near the end of the game is possible)
