Regarded by those who knew her as highly competent though often proud and arrogant, Auna Brel would best be described as a workaholic. Focused on her career, Auna made little time for friends or family and whilst many people would readily admit to admiring her achievements in later life as a diplomat, few would have labeled her as a friend.
She had exacting standards that she required subordinates and colleagues to meet and would think little of criticizing their work in front of others. Even work of the highest quality would rarely receive praise.
Away from work, Auna enjoyed relatively few leisure activities although she had a fondness for playing Chess and Bolian Backgammon.
Influence on Tobias Brel
Of all of the Brel symbiont's previous hosts, Tobias has had the greatest difficulty integrating Auna's personality and memories into his own identity.
Having been easygoing before the joining, Tobias developed a tendency to be overly harsh on himself after making mistakes and errors of judgment. He attributes this and a general lessening of his self-esteem to Auna's influence.
One aspect of Auna's personality that Tobias has had little trouble accepting however is her sweet tooth.
