Background - What is Aurelius Runesong’s background?

TW: Self-harm mention
Aurelius was born in the village to two parents. His mother was a writer and librarian. His father was a hunter. Both were fighters for hire. He was raised alongside his parents' dragons, Nox and Aegis.
A couple of neighboring kingdoms went to war when Aurelius was about 12. His parents were hired off and fell in one of the battles, along with Aegis. Nox was the only survivor and took on a mother role for Aurelius after his loss. Villagers in general made sure that his physical needs were taken care of, and Taurin frequently spent time at his house to keep him company and make meals for him as needed, at least for the first year or so.
However, Aurelius had difficulty escaping his grief and slipped into severe and chronic depression. It started as a few symptoms, such as anhedonia, intense sadness very frequently, and alternating nights where he would sleep 12 hours, then hardly any at all. Left unnoticed by everyone except for Nox, who had no experience or knowledge regarding mental illness, it progressed. He virtually stopped taking care of himself, had to be reminded to eat as he didn't really care enough to do so, and he started self-harming (he would punch hard things like wood furniture and get bruises and open wounds on his hands, and also sometimes would scratch the insides of his upper arms) (he was about 14 at this time).
He never told Nox, but she sensed something was wrong, and she tried to bring it up. He pushed her away for some time, up until she caught a glimpse of his bloodied-up hands (he would always wear gloves and long sleeves) and tried to understand what was happening. He tried to make excuses, but she didn't believe him and went to Taurin for help.
Taurin lived with Aurelius for a while, until he was back on his feet and was working. Aurelius established a relationship with a couple of the village medics to see if there was anything they could do, but mostly, there wasn't. He just had a lot of support from friends and started to recover. He hasn't had any episodes so severe since, though he is still prone.

Aurelius learned to fight from a young age (basic training around 9, real swords around 13), but has yet to master any form of combat.

Aurelius grew up around books and writing, and he picked up a few tricks of the trade from his mother. He also became good friends with Ignis while they were first interning at the library, following the death of his mother. Ignis inspired him to put his mother's work out there, and finish the books she couldn't. They also started doing a lot of reading and research on dragons, which piqued Aurelius' interest in working in the nursery. He got his first job there at 15 years of age.

Most of his life between the start of his recovery and the beginning of the story was dedicated to doing the occasional mission alongside his regular work, and also to honing his skills as a writer and editor so he could finish his mother's work.
