Diagnosed with osteo-sarcoma (bone cancer) at age 12 (2005), received genetically engineered marrow transplants and several months of medication and chemotherapy. She went into remission at age 14 (2007) and was pronounced cured at age 19 (2012). Since then, she has had no relapses and no lasting side effects, and needs no medication to maintain the stability of her transplants.

In The Command Chair:
Aurora is cool-headed and analytical, considering all ramifications and possible outcomes of a situation before making her decisions. This does not impede her ability to give orders or take command in tense situations, rather, she uses past experiences to guide her instincts.
Aurora prefers to avoid confrontation, yet does not fear it. She knows when to follow the rule-book to the letter, but also when to throw it out and go with her own impulses.
Aurora takes multi-tasking to the extreme, which is one of the reasons that she was able to climb the ranks so quickly. She can easily monitor multiple situations, and keep lists of viable solutions, and to-do lists.
Her greatest weakness as a Commander is that her patience wears too thin when dealing with personnel and issues that she deems “not essential.” In her effort to ensure the safety of her crew, productivity of the ship, and success of the mission, she sometimes neglects the human element. She also expect the highest standards from everyone around her, including herself, forgetting that perfection is an ideal, not a possibility.
As A Friend:
Aurora has some trouble letting her guard down, wanting to maintain her professional distance from many of her crewmembers. Because of this distance, she is often initially perceived as “cold”, which is a pity because nothing is further from the truth.
For those who know her well, Aurora is a light-hearted, protective friend, and a true ally. Her humor, though a bit sharp and gallows at times, is always readily apparent. She's quick to laugh, and loves late night conversations filled with music, good wine, and her close friends. She prefers to keep a tight-knit, small circle of friends that she is hopelessly devoted to.
As A Family Member:
Losing her mother to a terminal illness was the hardest obstacle that Aurora ever had to face. Her family has always been tight knit, and her mother's death drove the remaining 3 members even closer together.
Aurora is half of a pair of fraternal twins. Her brother, Austin is her closest confidant, and has been since birth. They speak on a weekly basis, if not more often as time allows. As children, they developed their own language and form of communicating, “twin-speak” some called it, which they still lapse into from time to time. Austin and Aurora also exhibit a mild psychic connection that has never been fully explored.
