Aurora began life as a sentient star. She watched her planets grow and change, and eventually evolve life. One day, a race of beings arrived and wiped out the inhabitants of her planets, then caused her to explode, wiping out what life remained, and destroying all of the planets in her solar system. Dissipated over a great distance, her essence was gathered by the Master of the Sun and when Peter Quill came seeking aid, he turned Aurora into a ship, giving her to Peter Quill as Quill became Starlord. She later passed Quill's equipment on to rookie lawman Sinjin Quarrel to become the new Star Lord after Quill's disappearance, though the timeline of these events is uncertain.
