If your question really is about A, then why do you need B in here at all? And why do you need A^2? If C is categorical, then there is not much sense in saying "Introducing C shifts A to the right". You could say that for different levels of C the conditional distributions of A are different, and that can be checked with ANOVA or its non-parametric versions (Kruskal-Wallis). Please clarify what your research questions here is.
