The Selection Wiki


Ahren has blond hair and brown eyes, like a mini version of his father. According to one of Josie's friends, he's "handsome" and, when he was walking away from Eadlyn, Josie and her friends "basically melted at the sight of his face." This comment, however, might not be based totally on his looks, but more on just him being there. His younger brother Kaden is like a mini version of him.


Ahren is more aware than Eadlyn of the feelings the people of Illéa have. He makes his feelings known, most of the time, and has a personality that is sweet around someone like Camille, or very protective, like when he punched Jack Ranger for touching Eadlyn inappropriately. He also is shown to be one of the people that Eadlyn's looks up go for Eadlyn
