Aurelia is tall, but gives an impression of delicate grace that belies her size. Unlike her predecessors she has only two white-feathered wings. They spread nearly ten feet across. Aurelia's features are striking, androgynous and beautiful, and her bright crimson hair flows down over her shoulder like a river of blood dripping across her well-worn armor. Her voice is surprisingly high and musical.
Unlike the former guild leader Razia, the Parun of the Boros, Aurelia keeps a close relationship with her guildmembers. During the years of her leadership, she has shown a strong appreciation for the ordinary citizens who are often caught in the middle of interguild violence. True justice, Aurelia argues, isn't merely the enforcement of the letter of existing laws (let the Azorius fret over that), but the establishment of equitable and compassionate relationships among all of Ravnica's people. That means protecting the weak from the depredations of the strong, sheltering the innocents who are threatened by war, and ensuring that enforcement of the law doesn't become oppressive. Aurelia actively supports efforts to establish a lasting peace among the guilds in the absence of the Guildpact. Aurelia prefers to lead the Boros Legion from the front. She brings swift and unrelenting punishment to the wicked, and her temper is legendary.
She ascended to leader after turning much of the guild against Feather, whom she considered to be a disgrace to the Legion.
When Gideon Jura met with her, she asked him to lead the cleansing of the Ninth District of Ravnica, inviting him to join the Legion. Gideon was looking for help against the Eldrazi and thought Aurelia could help him save thousands of lives. After the cleansing of the Ninth District, Aurelia once again offered Gideon to join the Legion. After his refusal, she told him he was always welcome at Sunhome.
Aurelia attended the guild summit on behalf of the Legion, and witnessed its dissolution after the murder of Isperia. Afterwards she was part of Ral Zarek's alliance in an attempt to prevent inter-guild conflict and to get ready for the upcoming war.
War of the Spark
During the War of the Spark, Aurelia was one of the generals of the forces fighting Bolas's Dreadhorde, closely working together with Gideon. She served as the representative for the Boros Legion at the resurrection of Niv-Mizzet as the new Living Guildpact.
She survived the War, and displayed much sorrow over Gideon's death.
