Box of Aldon Anthony Files

Dust billows as the file box lands on the table. While many archives in the Interdimensional Rumor Mill are unified in some way, this... definitely isn’t one of them. The accompanying Rumor Registry explains all of the contents... wherever it is... but for now you grab the folder labelled IF-74.69 and start reading...

Background

Aldon Anthony was born in London. His mother was a Filipino immigrant and his father was a minor devil. Due to his semi-fiendish nature, Anthony has horns, dark purple hair, golden eyes, and a slight purple hue to his skin in places. Because he always stood out, Anthony was always drawn to alternative fashion and music. Particularly, he started wearing sunglasses to hide his unnaturally colored eyes which later turned into a love of extravagent sunglasses (often called "anime-protagonist" sunglasses by friends.) By the time he was a young adult, Anthony had become a punk rocker by night and a barista by day. Anthony travelled to Miami for what he thought would be his breakthrough gig as an opener at one of Mr. Wide's many venues. However, the paperwork got mixed up and he was instead signed onto the Season 1 lineup of the Miami Dale.

Time on the Miami Dale

Despite his somewhat edgy and devilish appearance, Aldon Anthony's teammates generally found him easy to talk to and always up for a good time. Particularly, Anthony got along like wildfire with Jenna Maldonado since the two liked to cause (mostly) harmless trouble together. His friendship with Farrell Seagull as a fellow young artist is also notable. The only member of the Miami Dale that players and fans noticed Anthony had noticable tension with was Theodore Passon. While Anthony initially seemed eager to get along with Passon, even being the one to nickname him "Teddy" he soon withdrew significantly from their friendship for then unknown reasons (however, increased purple pigment in his cheeks was sometimes observed by teammates when Anthony talked to Passon.)

At the beginning of Season 2, when Jenna Maldonado was incinerated, there was a notable change in Anthony's demeanor. He became more introspective than before due to mounting anxieties about who could be lost next. Before the 88th game of Season 2, as Anthony saw the weather form into a Solar Eclipse, he turned to speak candidly to Passon but could only get out "I, uh, I care about you, Teddy" before running to his position on the field.

Aldon Anthony was incinerated that game.

Aldon in the Afterlife

After his incineration, Aldon Anthony haunted Worldwide Stadium alongside Jenna Maldonado, the only other dead Miami Dale player at the time. The two were thought to be responsible for several inexplicable but harmless mishaps at the stadium, including the letters of signs being rearranged and ELCTRC WTR cans exploding when opened as if they'd been vigorously shaken.

In the beginning of Season 3, Theodore "Teddy" Passon was incinerated. After this, Anthony and Passon's ghosts were regularly seen together around Worldwide Stadium. When their, then living, teammate Logan Horseman was asked about their relationship, he answered "And they were boo-mates." When Horseman was asked to elaborate, he shook his head and sighed "All these ghosts and I still can't find a boo."


History

An investigation ordered by the commissioner confirmed that Aldon had passed due to natural causes.[1]

Up until Season 9, Anthony held the dubious honor of being the least-tributed player in the Hall of Flame.
