Aja Leith is a character in Jem and the Holograms portrayed by Hayley Kiyoko. She is the main guitarist of The Holograms, the titular band.

She is loosely based on the character of the same name from the original 1980s animated series, Jem.

Synopsis Edit

Note: This section is taken from the Jem Wikia.

Aja was one of Aunt Bailey's two adopted daughters already living with her, the other being Shana. When Emmett died, his two surviving daughters, Jerrica and Kimber, went to live with them, all becoming one big family since then.

Unlike the character from the animated series, Aja has done some questionable things in the past (she mentions having been in juvenile hall and that she can't go back at the pier) and is a bit of a kleptomaniac.

Personality Edit

Note: This section is taken from the Jem Wikia.

Aja is a headstrong tomboy who can still express her feminine side at times. She can be very sensitive and sometimes makes snap judgements. She is very intuitive and can easily see people's true intentions before others do. She is loyal to her friends and cares about keeping Jem's true identity from being revealed. She has a very good relationship with her fellow foster sisters and friends. Aja enjoys repairing things and occasionally works as the band's mechanic.

Due to her vast knowledge on mechanics and electronics, Aja is generally the one who leads the other girls when they have to get down to business, either it is to dismantle or reassemble Synergy, retrieve information from her memory bank, or when restoring a car. This is what probably made her the unofficial chauffeur for the band, as she is the one usually seen behind the wheel of the many vehicles the Holograms use for transportation. It is not shown often, but in a few episodes it appears that Aja does have a bit of a temper at times.
