Aaron Hotchner is a Beta Level unmated Sentinel leading the Behavioral Analysis Unit. A series of deaths and multiple calls for assistance pulls both his primary team as well as his Sentinel, Swing SentinelGuide, and Guide Crime Unit to Sioux Falls, South Dakota. Having come online when he killed his father to protect himself as a teenager, Hotchner had been waiting most of his life to find his mate. With an odd case as well as a corrupt and prejudice Police Chief the last thing Aaron ever expected was to find his Guide in an interview room. That Guide being serial killer John Winchester’s eldest son Dean.
