Aristocles is skilled in archery and committing heists through his sneaky ways, and has a desire to be recognized by others for his strengths.

In the film, Xalvador joins Aristocles on his journey and aids him with his skills so he can stop running away from the authorities and continue his work in peace, while eventually forming a relationship with Aife, which was chosen because Travis Willingham and Laura Bailey are married in real life.
