[[WMG: Aaron's motivation for intervening at the party is to get money from Granger.]]
[[Tropers/IuraCivium My]] father came up with this. Aaron is shown in the film as being selfish and willing to do anything to get ahead—he even cheats at Scrabble. He doesn't want so much to actually save Rachel as he does to look the hero in order to impress Granger and get some [=VC=] funds from him.
