Aimless was a corporal in the Bridgeburners and a sapper. He was described as lean and stooped with a long face, a habitually dour expression, and watery eyes.[1]

In Memories of IceEdit

In the lead up to Dujek Onearm's war against the Pannion Domin, Aimless was a part of the Bridgeburner detachment who traveled to the Barghast Range with Captain Ganoes Paran. They sought to assist Trotts in his claim for leadership of the White Face Barghast, needed allies in the war. When it appeared that the Bridgeburners' lives were in danger amidst the angry hordes of Barghast warriors, Aimless brought Paran a plan for the squad's defensive withdrawal. Paran angrily rebuffed the plan, insulting Aimless in the process. The corporal informed Paran that the plan might proceed without his approval and warned that he had broken the neck of the last captain who threatened him.[1]

Paran's handling of Trott's trial by combat and the uncertainty that followed earned Aimless' grudging respect. He called Paran "cold as a Jaghut winter".[1]

During the Siege of Coral, Aimless and the other Bridgeburners were inserted into Coral by Quorl under the cover of darkness. Their mission was to attack the keep of the Pannion Seer while High Fist Dujek led the rest of the army into the city itself.[2] Quick Ben and the mages prepared to battle the Seer's demonic Condors while Hedge's sappers readied to blow an entrance into the keep's wall. Aimless was sent with Picker's squad to divert more than fifteen K'ell Hunters headed towards Dujek's position.[3]

The Bridgeburners played a successful cat and mouse game with the Hunters using Moranth munitions, but they were decimated in the process. Aimless and the others were saved when Onos T'oolan suddenly appeared among them to kill the Hunters on his own mission to assault the keep. Picker ordered her squad to follow in the safety of the T'lan Imass' wake.[4]

Aimless was among the casualties during the fighting in the keep. Like the other Bridgeburners who perished, his body was placed in a sarcophagus within the throne room of Moon's Spawn after the battle by Anomander Rake. The failing Skykeep was then sent out over the Rust Ocean where it was presumed to have crashed into the sea.[5]
