  • Luke 'Rabid Llama' Rinard specifically set out to make Aurelion Sol's personality distinctive from other popular culture dragons such as Smaug from The Lord of the Rings and Paarthurnax from The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.
    • Primary inspirations were The Great Owl from The Secret of NIMH (for being awe-inspiring and whose power and wisdom are worth the risk of seeking out) and David Bowie (for his effortless, marvelous, and beautiful demeanor, his 'inspired' creations, and his 'justified' rockstar arrogance)
  • At one point Aurelion Sol had a really elongated body, described as 10-12 Teemo OriginalSquare Teemos in length, which people naturally wanted to use to snake between and coil around their opponents.

  • Aurelion Sol is not only threaded by Targon that they could destroy his stars, he is controlled by Pantheon OriginalSquare Pantheon through the crown he wears.

  • As one of the oldest living beings in the universe, Aurelion Sol has witnessed the rise and fall of countless worlds and civilizations, but the world that peaked his interest and curiosity was Runeterra.
    • Mount Targon has direct cultural and historical ties to him, being the highest and therefore most accessible location for him to act from as well as being the Aspects' homeland.
      • Aurelion Sol despises them for deceiving, enslaving, and figuratively clipping his wings to use him as a weapon against the Void and any other resistance, a pet on a leash. If he so much as insubordinates, the Aspects destroy one of the stars he tenderly and lovingly crafted to light up the cosmos. This arrogance on their part has earned them Aurelion Sol's spite and contempt, so much so that he wants nothing more than to see Targon's fall.
        • This is why he fancies neither Diana OriginalSquare Diana nor Leona OriginalSquare Leona (whom he sees as naive and foolish for putting his creations on a pedestal) and especially Pantheon OriginalSquare Pantheon (whose incarnations have a tendency to bark orders at him)
  • Aurelion Sol has knowledge of Bard OriginalSquare Bard, Kindred OriginalSquare Kindred, and Nagakabouros.
    • The village sage from Bard Mountain (Ionia) was convinced his people would die without the Celestial artifact Noxus was after and Bard snatched away. This artifact's relation to Aurelion Sol is uncertain.
