Aureus, His Radiant majesty, is the helm of the Fulgen brood. He is an ancient wyrm, following Baastherox in age. Aureus has seen great battles of yore, and he has taken part in many of the most important events and conflicts that have shaped the Red Moon’s history. His role in draconic society is crucial, for his brood is currently the dominant one. Feared as he is respected.
During the early days of Drakha, the first wyrms all had a similar aspect, but as their world started changing a strange phenomenon started to occur. The hatchlings of their eggs resulted in dragons with unique and very different characteristics to their progeny.  Some of them were feathered, or had scales with strange colours and qualities no one had ever seen, and some others possessed the ability to conjure rare and unknown magic. In the beginning, this was seen as an aberration, and many even decided to kill or eat the little beasts, but as time ran its course they came to be accepted.  
Aureus Fulgen himself was among the first and incredibly rare variants of wyrms to exist. His metallic scales were so beautiful and shun so brightly, it appeared he had been bestowed with an armour of pure gold. Many saw him as a strange relic and oft praised his unique aspect. Nevertheless, this awoke an anxiety in him, for he desired not to please others, but to be pleased. This woke in him the desire to transcend expectations, and perpetuate his majesty out his own will. So it came to pass that Aureus gave himself the task to rise and become founder of his own kin, the Fulgen brood, which he knew would be the most glorious of all.
Centuries later, Aureus continued to rise in glory, but the separation of the Great Wyrms into different broods had stirred conflict, for drakes are rightfully arrogant and self-important creatures and it was intrinsic for them to wish to state their superiority above aught else.  War came in the form of a great kinslaying, and Aureus and his brood were some of the most remarkable contenders.
Many broods went fully extinct during these wars, but the Fulgen endured. Aureus, looked upon the crimson-tainted battlefield, and saw not victory but loss and a baleful wasteland. He saw marred bodies and faces, and knew that great power had ceased to exist after that last battle, power which he could have manipulated to use in his favour.
Certainly not grieving, but deep in thought, Aureus came to conclude existence could not be futile,  every creature born or hatched had to have a purpose. It was of little or vast importance, it mattered not to him; this purpose he would use to grow in strength and power to become insuperable. Hence, not sitting idle, he commenced exercising apparent diplomacy, which was in truth elaborate manipulations for his future plans of greatness.  
Aureus started working on gaining allies instead of foes to benefit from those characteristics that made them different and strange to the Fulgen. His followers became so vast in numbers that he extended the territory of his lair to build Aurelya, the city of Fulgen, where he keeps his kin and all of those in his service close to please his ambitions.
Aureus is characterized for his imposing presence and character. He is a natural born leader and he shines with the majesty of the sun wherever he decides to make an appearance. He, unlike other dragons, appears to have a much more lenient and even understanding attitude towards those in his service. However, his intelligence manifests in his manipulations to use whatever resources he has to his benefit. A not so severe regime over his underlings makes these live longer and work better. This rhetoric is the foundation of his brood’s striking strength and dominance. Those under his command not only fear him but also respect him, everlastingly willing to stand for the Fulgen. Aureus is capable of captivating and charming anybody who stands before him, imbuing in any individual’s a powerful sense of duty and servitude towards him, their one and only lord.
