Aurea was born to Arwen and Tarash Hali on the planet Cerea in 5 BBY. In 6 ABY, two bounty hunters by the names of Siena and Helms killed her parents and tried to kidnap her. Aurea was able to injure Helms before getting captured by Siena. As she was being taken to their ship, Echon Tarkin arrived and killed Helms. After being saved, she had a vision of Echon becoming powerful and joined him to she if her vision would come true.
In 7 ABY, Echon and Aurea arrived at the planet Eriadu. Soon after arriving Echon met up with Celeste Ial, his childhood friend, and decided to join her on her mission to Voltar. Upon their arrival, Celeste's ship, the Frayed Hunter was shot down. Aurea, Echon, Celeste and her first-in-command crashed onto the surface via an escape pod. Shortly after crashing, the group was captured by Nationalist troops led by Zak La'Rocha.
