Sydney Driscoll

Sydney Driscoll is a helper to Uber A. Alex/Uber A discovered that Sydney was stealing from a bank and believed that she fit the hoodie, so she recruited her for the cause, though Sydney claimed that she joined because she did not want to be on the "losing team".

Aria believes her at first but quickly deduces that she is taking orders.

Aria Montgomery

Aria Montgomery is the helper to Uber A. She is recruited by Sydney Driscoll, under orders from Uber A, to join the A-Team. She doesn't accept the offer to torture her friends with "A.D." and Sydney at first, but later "A.D." questions if she has made a decision yet and she goes to face chat with them. "A.D." has Aria give them information about the Liars' recent discoveries and once she informs them of Lucas and Charlotte's comic book, "A.D." sends her to steal it and deliver it to them. She drops off the comic book in a locker at the school and then receives an "A" uniform hoodie in return. She is then sent to act as "A.D." to trash Emison's baby nursery, almost getting caught in the process. Despite feeling guilt over her actions, she continues acting as "A.D.'s" helper and they send her to Spencer's house to drop off a recording of a conversation between Mary Drake and Peter Hastings. Aria suits up in her uniform and goes to place a puzzle piece on the game and retrieve the file on Ezra in return. After the police seize the Liars' phone, "A.D." gifts Aria with a new one, as a gift for her being in their team. She requests to meet "A.D.", claiming that she has earned her way onto the A-Team and "A.D." agrees, requesting that she wear the "A" uniform. However, when Aria goes to meet "A.D.", dressed head to toe as "A", the Liars confront her instead, after Mona had informed them of her being on the A-Team. The Liars are furious about her collaboration with "A.D." and leave her in the woods. "A.D." gifts her with an alibi for the night of Archer's death and tells her that she has won Liar's Lament. However, she officially defects from the A-Team and returns to the Liars.

Wren Kingston

Wren Kingston is an accomplice to Alex Drake. He is the one who informed CeCe and Alex of each other and later helps Alex with certain parts of her game, though stays in London for the most part.
