Aurelius is short and wiry and much stronger (and faster) than he looks. He has an olive complexion, black hair and black eyes. He dresses in a toga or camo fatigues, depending on his mood, when not working. Given that he's a master of disguise, none of this is diagnostic.
Aurelius grew up in one of the nigh-infinite bad parts of Nexus. He doesn't talk about it. He's willing to kill just about anyone or anything, generally for money but occassionally on his own initiative. Despite this, he's actually not too brutal or vindictive a guy. He fights a lot in bars and alleys, but has never killed anyone in such casual combat; the worst mistreatment a girlfriend (even a very temporary one) has ever received from him is a slap in lieu of a more formal parting.
For the past twenty years, starting in his teens, Aurelius has been a professional duelist; he hasn't lost a match in the past 18. He is a master of disguise and acting, almost never failing to integrate himself into a public situation and successfully issue or provoke a challenge. His fighting style is flashy (in the interest of giving the client its money's worth) but precisely controlled. He can and does specify where and how his target will be wounded or killed, should his client so desire.
As a professional duelist, Aurelius is wanted by quite a few legal jurisdictions, but there are many more which have no explicit laws against such practices, and more yet in which his crimes are as yet unsuspected.
Aurelius bears a grudge against Simon ben Mattathias for not staying dead after Aurelius killed him in a duel. He has tried several times to maneuver himself into more duels with Simon, so far without success.
