Relationships Edit

Romance Edit

Jace Herondale Edit

Aurora and Jace began with a constant exchange of teasing or sarcastic remarks, but eventually began to show that they care for one another, especially as Jace volunteers to be her tutelage. They both challenged authority, and their relationship with their family and colleagues, more than usual in their attempts to help and look after each other especially Jace looking after Rory, and despite his initial "Never to fall in love" outlook, he began to fall for her and her for him as well.

After a mission together, when Rory thought that she had killed Jace, They kissed, and the pair began seeing each other. However, the trickery of Valentine that Jace and Rory couldn't be together put a halt in their budding romance. Her issues immediately forced her to shoot down her feelings for Jace, and while she seemingly moved on with Simon, Jace struggled visibly and blamed his lapse of judgement—his love for Rory and she also struggled to move on and just hid her feelings. Jace was eager to tell Rory that he still loved her very much but decided against it when he thought that Rory was happier with Simon.

Rory's feelings for him, which she'd tried to suppress, were brought to the surface by the Seelie Queen who, using trickery, forced Rory to kiss the one she truly wanted: Jace. Liam broke up with her, and some time after, when tensions had died down between the three, Rory and Jace, afraid of losing each other without giving them a shot, stopped trying to fight their feelings and kissed, kicking off their relationship.

Unlike with any of his past flames, Jace chose to take things slow with Rory, not wanting to risk letting Rory see something in him she wouldn't like.

Liam Odette Edit

Others Edit

Family Edit

Luna Fairchild Edit

Aurora has always had an undeniable connection to her mother through her visions. Aurora had thought that her mother died in a fire which was the inevitable reason that Rory has pyrophobia. From the fact that Aurora thought Luna was dead they had a connection. Luna once told Rory "Emotions make us powerful in the light of our enemies". Rory had inherited everything from her mother: Her abilities, looks and personality. She loved her mother with all her heart but never got to know her even more when she was killed. When she was killed by Valentines possession demon along with Jocelyn Aurora grew to complete hatred to Valentine. But even after her death Aurora still had a connection to her mother. Her mother occasionally gave her advice and communicated with her through them.

Jocelyn Fairchild Edit

Like Maryse Lightwood Jocelyn was Rory's aunt. Jocelyn protected Aurora from Valentine as long as she could and eventually got kidnapped. Aurora was shown to do anything for her even breaking the rules to find her and go after Valentine. Aurora's main mission unlike the others wasn't to find the cup it was to get to Valentine and save Jocelyn no matter what the cost. Despite this many things came along and blocked a bit of the road. Jocelyn had awoken to find that Aurora handed herself to Valentine to protect her friends and family. Jocelyn was assigned to Idris but got killed by Valentine's demon which is also the cause for Rory's hatred towards her father.

Valentine Morgenstern Edit

Aurora never held any sympathy or love towards her biological father. She despised Valentine for his narrow vision of the world, his desire for glory, and the evil acts he had committed to achieve his ends. She refused to believe anything he said, knowing that Valentine was a proficient liar with only selfish intentions. To some extent, She refused to even acknowledge Valentine as her father, often referring to him by his given name which noticeably annoyed him.

Valentine himself cared very little for Rory and was willing to kill her to reach his goals, proving that she meant nothing to him. He even blamed her as the reason Luna and Jocelyn left him during the Uprising. Valentine was the one that told her that "To love is to destroy, To be loved is to be destroyed".

Sebastian Morgenstern Edit

Jonathan had been obsessed with the thought of Rory being his sister ever since he found out about her. When Rory found out about him being alive she wanted to hold onto hope thinking that he could be good but her view of him drastically because of the things he began to do and had done. While she grew to hate him, Sebastian loved and cared for her—at least in the twisted way he knew how. Not only that, but Sebastian's sense of family was also warped, as he wanted to be with Rory, truly believing that they belonged together, not only as his sister but also as a lover. Rory hated him just like Valentine because he tries to get rid of the people she cares about because he thought that if he can't have her no one can and was willing to kiill her. Each side of their feelings to each other was different with Rory's hatred toward him and his possessiveness and jealousy of other relationships that she had with Jace, Alec, Liam, Izzy and many more.

The Lightwood Family Edit

Alec Lightwood is Aurora's cousin as Maryse is he aunt. Alec later became her older adoptive brother when she was younger. Alec has always considered Aurora his sister more than a cousin.

Both of them are aware of how they feel and who they are. Rory was aware of Alec's queer sexuality and his liking to Magnus and Alec was aware of her romantic feelings for Jace since they were younger. Rory supported him enough to know that when he was gonna get married to Lydia for his family she immediately didn't like this and told Lydia that no one would get pass her if he was hurt by anyone no matter who it is. Alec was one of the people that waited for something to happen with her and Jace.

Alec and Rory would die for each other.

Isabelle Lightwood is Aurora's cousin just like Alec and Max but is also her older adoptive sister.

Isabelle was also aware of Rory's romantic feelings for Jace ever since they were younger. Both Isabelle and Rory were aware of Alec's queer sexuality and his liking to Magnus. Aurora disapproved of Isabelle's changing all for her mother. Izzy and Aurora in battles are seen fighting side by side in battle and they tell each other everything for example despite the fact that Jace told her not to tell Alec or Izzy about her abilities she told Izzy anyways.

Isabelle understand when Rory clashes with Alec. Isabelle and Aurora are protective of and would die for each other. When Rory found out about her Yin Fen addiction Aurora was worried and took it to heart.

Max is Aurora's 9-year-old cousin turned adoptive brother. Aurora is very affectionate of Max and the other way around. Every time Max comes from Idris he always gives her a flower. They play with each other and have fun. Max only one time slightly hurt Rory's feelings but she forgave him. Max is also the reason why Aurora hated her Jonathan even more because her brother physically harmed Jonathan and she wanted to kill him for that. Max looks up to Rory much like the others.

Maryse is Aurora Fairchild's aunt turned adoptive mother. She loves and cares for her as much as she cares for her biological children, even though this was not evident to her in many situations. She goes as far as to lie and try to trick the Clave in order to protect her. just like Isabelle, Maryse would be hard on her like Alec is. Aurora disapproved of the way she once talked to Izzy. Maryse is willing to make efforts in repairing her wrongs, putting pride aside in order to make amends with her family.  A while after she was let go as the head of the Institute She showed more affectionate. When Aurora found out about Robert's affairs she told Maryse to leave him and they began keeping in more touch with each other. She supports her love for Jace and Jace for her.

Robert is Aurora Fairchild's uncle-in-law turned adoptive father. Like Maryse he loves and cares for her as much as her cares for her biological children, even though this was not evident to her in many situations. Unlike Isabelle, Aurora isn't the "Daddy's Girl" Like Izzy used to be. When Aurora found out about she supported and Maryse and became even more strained with Robert losing contact. She even mentioned that she will hurt the so called "bitch" that he loves more than Maryse.
