Aurora was born in San Francisco, CA, USA on Earth and raised in New York City, NY, USA on Earth to a wealthy family; she is the only daughter of deceased Starfleet Captain Elena Rose James and wealthy casino owner, Todd Mark James. Her mother died giving birth to her, and her father sent her to only the best private schools in the Upper East Side of New York City. She showed great promise in linguistics as a kid and graduated high school at the top of her class as Valedictorian a year early, speaking eight distinct native Earth languages fluently. In addition to her love of languages she was quite the sponge when it came to absorbing new information. She attended New York University with a double major in Psychology and Sociology gaining both her B.S degrees. She then went on to grad school program that resulted in her gaining both a P.h.D. and an M.D. It was revealed during her freshman year Psychology class that she had a photographic memory, capable of allowing her to fly right through any book, test, and assignment she was ever given and allowed her to graduate and be at the top of her class as Valedictorian. After her stunning graduation speech and her small family reunion with her father, she was hit hard by the reality of the fact that her father was an unhappy and dying man as he was just diagnosed with lung cancer and he had every intention to kill himself after selling everything and leaving her with his vast fortune. Despite this, she left for Starfleet command as planned with her father’s blessing.
While at Starfleet, she spent the next few years double majoring in advanced security training,and science specializing in biology and chemistry. All while studying Alien languages during what little free time she had. She finally graduated her Cadet Cruise with her degrees at age 30. This time however, her father wasn't at her reunion but she got a letter with his will waiting for her instead. Though heartbroken, she maintained a calm and collected exterior with the intent of honoring her parents’ memories.
Despite her age and strengths, Aurora's life hasn't been easy and she is a mother despite having given her daughter up for adoption.
Aurora’s first post was on the Duronus II Embassy/USS Thunder-A however she only served twenty one days. Aurora’s photographic memory sent her into a psychotic breakdown that overwhelmed her and forced her to come to terms with the loss of her father, the torture she endured as a freshman in college, and that with her combined guilt over giving up her daughter caused Aurora to then make a spontaneous and irrational decision that could very well have cost her her career, that mistake was leaving the Embassy without a word or paperwork essentially being marked as AWOL or MIA and as such she has been laying low off the radar back on Earth trying to forge some kind of relationship with her now twelve year old daughter.
After several months with Jazmine, Aurora managed to forge a successful relationship with her daughter and left Jazmine with her adoptive parents after making a vow to keep in touch. In that several months, Aurora has also undergone extreme therapy and has come to terms with both giving her daughter up for adoption and the loss of her father. However she will need a lot more therapy to come to terms with the torture she has endured. With that all said and done, Aurora’s therapist declared her fit to resume duty should she feel like going back and Aurora caught the next shuttle headed back to Starbase 118 to answer for the consequences of her sudden departure with hopes of salvaging what is left of her career. With a new assignment in hand, Aurora headed off to DS26 to meet up with her new ship, the USS-Atlantis with hopes of making new friends and not making the same mistake twice.
With hope in her eyes, Aurora cleared the terms of her reprimand and had served once again as the Counselor on the USS-Thunder A and Duronus II Embassy. Aurora boarded the USS Victory for a joint mission with her girlfriend Irina Pavlova. As the mission began underway, a last moment transfer order transferred both women to the USS Excalibur A. Aurora proposed to Irina who accepted. Aurora finished serving as a Medical Officer on a classified ship, in a classified location. For the duration of Aurora's classified mission, Jazmine was sent to boarding school on Earth. Upon Aurora's final return to the Embassy she talked Rear Admiral Toni Turner into marrying Irina and herself in a quick impromptu marriage. Some point after the actual wedding, AJ's life was cut short by a tragic sudden cardiac arrest.
