I know you're afraid. But fear is a demon. Close your eyes and tell yourself that you are not afraid. That is how you slay the demon.
— Aurora comforting Octavia. [src]

Aurora Blake was a character in the first season. She was portrayed by Monique Ganderton and debuted in His Sister's Keeper. She was the mother of both Bellamy and Octavia.

Aurora broke the one child law on the Ark by having a second child and was floated when Octavia was discovered. Before her death, Aurora was a seamstress.

After Octavia was born, Aurora resorted to prostitution with Ark Guard members to find out about surprise inspections ahead of time and to get a recommendation for Bellamy to join the guard. This helped prevent Octavia's discovery for sixteen years.

Early Life Edit

Not much is known about Aurora's early life. She was born on the Ark and during her adult life, she resided in sector B-17. At one point she had Bellamy under the one child law. Seven years later, Aurora had a daughter named Octavia, which was a crime punishable by death.

Aurora was forced to keep her second pregnancy and birth a secret. When her second child was born, she told Bellamy to name her and he named her Octavia after Emperor Augustus' sister. Aurora told Bellamy that Octavia was his responsibility.

Sixteen years later, Aurora was floated when Commander Shumway discovered Octavia at the Unity Day Masquerade Dance.

Throughout the Series Edit

In flashbacks shown in His Sister's Keeper, Aurora was forced to keep her second pregnancy a secret because of the one child law on the Ark. A young Bellamy watched his mother give birth to his sister and even helped keep her quiet after the birth. After the child was born, Aurora told Bellamy to name her. He had learned about the Roman emperor, Augustus, and named his sister after the emperor's sister, Octavia. Aurora told Bellamy that Octavia was his responsibility. He told her he loves her very much and promises to keep her safe, no matter what may happen.

His Sister's Keeper 031 (Aurora, Bellamy, and Octavia)

Because Octavia was an illegal second child, she had to be kept hidden in their room, never venturing out. Bellamy would tell her stories and play with her, telling her about the Ark. Their mother would also read them mythology, which Octavia loved. Octavia would also help Aurora, who was a seamstress on the Ark. In order to find out about the surprise inspections ahead of time, Aurora was sleeping with an Ark Guard and she was also trying to get Bellamy a position on the guard. During these inspections, Octavia was forced to hide under the floorboards and wait quietly until they were done. Bellamy told her to tell herself, "I am not afraid."

Octavia was finally exposed a year before they were sent to earth. Bellamy had become an Ark Guard Cadet and was able to get duty during the Unity Day masquerade party. The party is disrupted by a solar flare alert, requiring everyone to show ID. Octavia tries to run but is easily captured. As a result, Octavia is locked away in the Skybox, Bellamy loses his chance to be an Ark guard and becomes a janitor, and Aurora is floated.

Personality Edit

Aurora was shown to be a loving, devoted, and caring mother towards her children. Aurora can be considered selfish as well as selfless in her decision to keep her second child. Aurora knew she was breaking the rules but kept her child anyway, despite what that would mean for herself and what it would do to Bellamy's future. Aurora could also be stern, especially when her children acted out or became too loud.

Physical Appearance Edit

Aurora had a slim build, pale complexion, long dark brown hair, and hazel eyes. She appeared to be in her late thirties or early forties. Aurora's children bear a similar resemblance to her.

Relationships Edit

Bellamy Blake Edit

Bellamy is Aurora's first born. Aurora and Bellamy seemed to have a very close relationship when Bellamy was young. As Bellamy got older, he disapproved of his mother's prostitution. Aurora was willing to do anything to see Bellamy live a better life. This resulted in her using prostitution to get Bellamy a recommendation into the guard. Her death affected Bellamy greatly. On Earth, Bellamy blamed Octavia for Aurora's death. It was later mentioned that Bellamy did not mean it.

Octavia Blake Edit

Octavia is Aurora's second child. Aurora and Octavia seemed to have a very close relationship. As Octavia got older, she often wished to leave the safety of her home. Sixteen years after Octavia's birth, Aurora was floated when she was discovered. Octavia was thrown into juvenile lockup and never saw her mother again. Aurora's death greatly affected Octavia. On Earth, at one point, Octavia blames Bellamy for Aurora's death in anger.

Inspector Grus Edit

Inspector Grus was a member of the Ark Guard. It is implied that Aurora exchanged sexual favors with Inspector Grus in order to be alerted when a surprise inspection on their quarters was imminent. She also used the relationship to procure a recommendation for Bellamy to join the Ark Guard.
