- "You need guns? Ammo? I saw one of them science types go into that armory. Saw him punch in the code. You get me out of here, I'll let you have it."
- – Aaron Ingram upon the first meeting. [src]
Ingram was an inmate in a Siberian prison camp prior to "volunteering," He was accused of various shady dealings including selling controlled substances, kidnapping, human trafficking, fraudulent impersonation and "solicitation of a minor," and admits some of the charges are accurate. Since his name is redacted on his volunteer record, it is likely "Aaron Ingram" is an alias. He does, however, seem to be an American rather than a Russian, and claims to be a political prisoner who stepped on the wrong people's toes.
A poster regarding the volunteer program mentions him by name and claims he has already been rehabilitated and sent back to Earth.
Prey (2017) Edit
Morgan encounters Ingram in the Psychotronics Material Extraction Lab. He is trapped inside a glass testing chamber and the player can choose to either free him or use the controls nearby to kill him with a mimic and then recycle the resulting group of mimics for resources. If released, Ingram gratefully thanks Morgan and gives them the keycode to the armory. If the player chooses to kill him, the result is 10 Exotic Material resources.
If Morgan frees Aaron and seals all the gas leaks on the path that leads to the Material Extraction Lab with GLOO, Aaron will later appear killed by a mimic, but if at least one gas leak is left, the mimics will not be able to pass and he will escape with the survivors in the shuttle ending. Returning to Psychotronics later in the game will likely lead to the discovery that Aaron has been killed by the Phantom that spawns in the Material Extraction Lab on repeat visits. To avoid this Aaron can be locked into the Armory, as he sometimes walks into it when you unlock the door. He will always walk into the armory when you unlock it prior to releasing him.
If he is freed, he also warns Morgan that not all of the other prisoners are "decent people" like him, in particular referencing Luka Golubkin refusing to free him and seeing him bashing someone's head in with a spanner, possibly a reference to the latter killing Abigail Foy.
