Auras are a costume option that can be unlocked at level 30. Heroes can unlock them through a mission given by the City Representative. Villains can now unlock them through a mission given by Mr. Rodney. (Previously Villains contacted Kalinda or Matthew Burke before the City of Heroes Freedom update). Completing this mission unlocks Auras for the single character owning the mission. Once unlocked, the character must visit a Tailor to add, change, or remove an Aura from his or her costume slots. This costs influence/infamy.
