Aona was the original Vessel of the Shard Devotion.[2] Sometime after the Shattering, she and Skai took up residence on Sel.[1] Edgli believes that, by doing so, they violated the original Vessels' pact to not settle on the same world as another Shard,[3][4] though the exact terms of that agreement are somewhat unclear.[5]

Sometime in the distant past, Odium arrived on Sel and attacked both her and Skai, killing both of them and Splintering their Shards.[1][6] At the time, he was hunting Ambition, but found them first,[7] and likely used their alleged violation of the Vessels' pact as justification for killing them.[8] After Aona and Skai died, Odium locked much of Devotion and Dominion's power in the Cognitive Realm to prevent them from gaining another Vessel, which makes the Cognitive Realm around Sel very dangerous.[9][6]

On present-day Sel, while most of her power remains trapped in the Cognitive Realm, some of it is in the Aons at the center of seons, which are Splinters of Devotion.[10] There also appears to still be a perpendicularity tied to her, which takes the form of a round pool filled with blue liquid located on a mountain near Elantris.[11] When Raoden enters the pool, he hears a voice, which may be that of Aona's Cognitive Shadow, though whether or not she even has a Cognitive Shadow is unknown.[12][13]
