About Shayne & Aurox
Shayne is pretty much what you expect from an angsty teenage girl staring down the end of the universe. She is a Rogue punk that is hanging around the Detritus Ring. Shayne is inadvertently bounded to an energy eating creature named Aurox. He is her companion that demolishes enemies that get too close with his melee strikes. Aurox also functions as Shayne’s shield that protects her. Shayne uses her trusty boomerang to pick off enemies from a distance. These two make an excellent tag team.
Aurox’s phase beacon its basically his glowy orange crystal heart that Shayne ripped out and fashioned into the amulet belt thingy on her hip. She embedded some of that crystal into a ring of scrap metal. I imagine it might have some button on the back for her to detonate and kill him if he’s being disobedient. (Like she threatens in the lore tidbit in game.)
Aurox was the alpha beast of a pack of demonic space beasts that inhabit the Detritus ring. They pretty much exist to consume anything in their path and fight for territory among the astroids. They fly around in space, devouring ships and shards,basically being a massive danger to anyone trying to move through the Solus System. Eventually the Rogues and Jennerit wiped most of them out, but Shayne managed to trap Aurox and use him for her own devious ends. Removing his phase beacon thingy was a very explosive experience for both of them, hence the intense scarring on Shayne’s body.

Shayne & Aurox Lore
Isn't This A Buddy COMEDY?!
(Conversation between Aurox and Shayne pulled from a surveillance microphone within Shayne’s personal quarters in the Rogue outpost on Braxon III, installed at the request of the Valkyrie. Audio attached, transcript below.)
Shayne: Awright, one more time. Fetch, Aurox!
Aurox: I will ELIMINATE your physical form, child.
Shayne: Come on, we talked about this. This is how it works. This is how we have FUN. I throw, you fetch. Got it, Aurox?
Aurox: I am a RAGING HATE FURNACE of INFINITE POWER!
Shayne: Awwwww, so cute! Anyway, c’mon! Fetch! C’mon, boy!
Aurox: I will paint SEVERAL MURALS with your BLOOD!
Shayne: Nah, you won’t. Don’t forget, I have… THIS.
(Aurox makes an alarmed gurgling noise.)
Shayne: Yeah, you recognize THAT? It’s your phase beacon – the only thing keepin’ all your atoms and junk in one piece! And this button, this one? The one I’m LAZILY resting my finger on? Well, uh… uh… well, I have no idea what it does, but you really don’t want me screwing with this thing!
So you work for ME now. Sound good?
(Aurox sighs irritably.)
Shayne: Y’know, I CAN just shut this thing off…
Shayne: “Nooooo”-kay then! So fetch, damn you! Here it goes!
(Aurox grumbles, disgruntled; brief silence while he fetches.)
Aurox: I have returned. And I have brought you the object you hurled. Shayne.
Shayne: Sorry – who?
(Aurox sighs, resigned.)
Aurox: Supreme Shayne, Lord of All Things, Blessed Be Her Name.
Shayne: Aw, yeah. I like this. THIS is good.
Fetch Me a Symbiote
–== LLC ARCFLEET EXTERMINATION REQUEST 19956.27
–== WORK ORDER TO EXTERMINATE INDIGENOUS THREAT
–== LOCALE: CHUNK BRAXON III, DETRITUS RING, SOLUS SYSTEM
–== TAGS: GUAYOTA, ENERGY_SUCKING_ROCK_MONSTER, ROGUE_HOBOS
–== TAGS: S1_WEAPON_TRIAL, PRI1, SEV2
–== EXPECTED DATE OF COMPLETION: y.19956, d.30
This work order requires the aggressive depopulation of a dangerous indigenous species known as the “guayota” from the Braxon III planetoid of sector 17 within the Detritus Ring.
The “guayota” – or “star poop”, in the Aelfrin tongue – are aggressive and volatile energy beings capable of instantaneously encasing themselves in nearby mineral matter. They can also rapidly shift into a state of partly-phased energy, from which they feed incessantly on most known processed power sources. This appetite makes them terribly dangerous to colonies in the Detritus Ring, where the guayota are known to assault colonies, draining them entirely of power – a less-than-ideal outcome for colonies who rely on functional oxygen scrubbers to live.
The LLC has been offered a handsome contract from an anonymous third party to disperse the creatures from Braxon III and other nearby planetoids within the Detritus Ring.
Always Comes Back
(Letter found crumpled among the remains of Aurox’s containment facility within the Braxon III Base, after the heavy shield containment and its generator were ripped into small bits.)
S’up buddy. You are my BOMB. You are my badass bro. And my friend. And all that. I luv that you are always a part of me now. So close, I always feel that love from you… I let you go, but you always come back to me. You’s tha best.
One of these days, I’ll let you go. And go and go. Go as far as you want, and not even come back if you don’t want to. You can go SO far.
Oh. Not you, Aurox. Talkin’ to my BOOM-RANG.
P.S. – Clean up your cage, ORE-rockZ! It’s filthy in here!
Re-Mined to Kill You Later
(Etched into the side of a downed Jennerit cruiser on Ekkunar, in crude, evenly-spaced blocky handwriting.)
THE STARS WILL DIE BUT BEFORE THEM THIS GIRL WHO IS MY PRISON.
I WILL BREAK THESE BONDS AND THEN DEVOUR HER SOUL.
SHE WILL NO LONGER HOLD MY BONDED OBEDIENCE.
I WILL EXTINGUISH MY ANGER IN HER BLOOD.
(Immediately below this message, written in stylized spray paint.)
You wish, SUKKAHROX.
Mentor for Monsters
(Excerpts from the personal log of Reyna Valeria, a.k.a. “The Valkyrie”.)
// THE VALKYRIE’S CHRONICLES — DAY 5977
New rescue today – goes by the name of Shayne. Parents are nowhere to be found and the kid’s not the sharing type. Pre-teen. Major attitude. Ready to scrap. Found her picking around the settlement on Braxon III, not long after the LLC guayota exterminations. Good kid. Smart mouth. Scrapper. Reminds me of me.
// THE VALKYRIE’S CHRONICLES — DAY 5978
Something’s up with this Shayne kid. Thought she was just shy, but now I think she’s hiding something pretty major. Found her in the loot lockup on Braxon III past a door a capital ship blast couldn’t have opened. Doesn’t strike me as the hacker type. Just gave me one of those mean smiles when asked about it.
Only minor loot missing. Mostly mineral structural enhancers the miners use to reinforce caves. Color me suspicious.
// THE VALKYRIE’S CHRONICLES — DAY 5979
That little brat stole my hoverskiff from under lock and key. Huge – and I mean HUGE – hole in the side of the hangar. Only carries that little boomerang and no explosive residue. More curious than mad. She’s back under lock now.
// THE VALKYRIE’S CHRONICLES — DAY 5980
Well, mystery solved. Shayne has a “pet” guayota – one of those big rock monsters the LLC were trying to wipe out. Somehow, she’s making it do what she says. Never seen anything like it… big, ugly sucker. Almost got out of the shielded prison.
Rest of the base is rattled. I’m seeing potential here…
