Aaron Hotchner is the Unit Chief of the BAU team. He is a former prosecutor and was originally assigned to the FBI Field Office in Seattle. He is one of the most experienced agents in the BAU. He struggles to balance the demands of his job with his family life, but his wife Haley Brooks (Meredith Monroe) divorces him in season three. In the season five episode "100", Haley is killed by fugitive serial killer George Foyet (C. Thomas Howell), also known as "The Reaper", whom Aaron fights and beats to death. He also has a son named Jack Hotchner (Cade Owens), and a brother named Sean Hotchner, who appears one time in the first season. After Haley is murdered, he receives sole custody of Jack, and Haley's sister, Jessica Brooks, helps him with taking care of Jack. Aaron is now dating a woman named Beth Clemmons (Bellamy Young), who first appears in the season seven episode, "The Bittersweet Science".
