”I'm no god. I work for a living.—Auxiliary
Auxiliary's personality before the Dawnshard killed him is unknown. The Dawnshard burned away most of his essence, including parts of his personality. Due to this he lacks emotion, always talking in the same monotone voice. He is self conscious about this however, and adds emotions where he thinks they should be. Instead of in the tone he just adds these emotions as words to his sentences.
Attributes and Abilities
Although Auxiliary is a highspren, there are a number of differences between him and ordinary spren. This is because a Dawnshard burned away most of his essence.
Because of this Auxiliary doesn't seem to have a presence in the physical realm, unlike other Radiant spren. He is very aware of his surroundings however, often pointing things out to Sigzil. Auxiliary has very precise knowledge of how much Investiture Sigzil has left.
Sometime after Sigzil bonded to his honorspren, Auxiliary bonded him. Sigzil is known to have sworn the Fourth Ideal of the Skybreakers.
In a moment of need Sigzil, carrying the Dawnshard, reached out for Investiture to protect himself, the Dawnshard found it in Auxiliary and started to use his essence to fuel Sigzil's abilities. Sigzil was barely able to stop before the Dawnshard burned away all of Auxiliary.
During Sigzil's time on the run Auxiliary accompanied him.
At some point, Auxiliary took oaths and considers himself a Knight Radiant.
