“Look out, everybody, things are about to get awesome!”
Lady Aurelia Hammerlock is the playable Baroness class character in Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel. She is a Vault Hunter who was responsible for helping Handsome Jack rise to power, and is the sister of Sir Hammerlock.
The heiress of the Hammerlock family fortune, Aurelia is the sister of Sir Alistair Hammerlock, with whom she shares a strained relationship due to her miserable treatment of him. As an exorbitantly wealthy socialite, she has taken up the hobby of hunting, traveling the galaxy to seek dangerous creatures to kill as well as making her brother's life even more miserable. Her travels eventually brought her to Elpis, where she wound up with a group of Vault Hunters hired by Jack.
According to Gaige's dialog in the Holodome Onslaught DLC, Aurelia was found on Epitah by Gaige and Axton, who were under orders from Lilith to find the vault on the planet. They managed to find Aurelia, under the additional order to kill her for her involvement with Hyperion. Before the order was carried out, Lilith ordered them to not kill Aurelia and bring her to Pandora, after Athena's execution was stopped by The Watcher, who warned them that war was approaching.
Action Skill: Cold As Ice.
Aurelia's action skill is Cold As Ice, which lets her throw out a Frost Diadem Shard that seeks out enemies and attaches to them, dealing constant damage. If that target dies, the shard will move onto a new enemy, and so on.
Aurelia has three skill trees:
- Main article: Aurelia/Quotes
