A Short (Canon) History + Additional Facts about his activity in Fanfiction

Aaron Hotchner (known as Hotch) was born November 2, 1971 and has one sibling, Sean Hotchner, whom he is estranged from as a result of little contact between them in their youth. Before he joined the BAU he was a prosecuter, having earned his degree of Juris Doctor at George Washington University in Washington, D.C., in 1990. He later worked in the F.B.I. field office in Seattle, Washington, before transferring to Quantico where he worked up until the events of "The Storm" when Hotch is arrested by the DOJ for terrorist threats. It is revealed to be the work of serial killer, Peter Lewis (Mr. Scratch) to cause enough of a distraction to allow him and twelve other serial killers to break out of prison. Hotch and his son, Jack Hotchner, are put into protective custody up until Mr. Scratch is caught but ultimately decides to retire so as to be a better father to his son.

Some quick research has found that Aaron Hotchner can be found as soon as 2006 in fanfiction (the show debuting September 22, 2005) on Fanfiction.Net and 2007 on Archive Of Our Own.
