Each Auriok tribe is led by a champion responsible for the well-being of his or her people. Steelshapers are valued in times of war because of their ability to create weapons from the ample metals of their home. The Auriok regard the Cave of Light as sacred ground, and each generation a handful of Auriok girls are brought there to train as wizards. Auriok magic is a strong force on Mirrodin; in order to cope with the dangerous artifact creatures that ravage the Razor Fields, the Auriok have perfected many spells to combat the constructs.
The Auriok are a tall people with bronze skin, stiff white hair, and muscular frames. Like all creatures of Mirrodin, their bodies are composed of flesh and living metal — in their case, gold ("aurum" being Latin for "gold"). Auriok of both sexes wear little, preferring loose white robes, tunics, or loincloths. Auriok cards are exclusively found in white.
