Auris is a snarky guy when he puts his mind to it. This brings forth a wellspring of quotes and comebacks that I’m never sure I’ll get to use in a story. Here is one of them:
"What I do or do not allow to happen in my own bed is none of your business. All you need to know is I am stronger than you and I am of a mind to merely maim you and leave you to the tender mercies of your pack."
In my universe, vampires and werewolves aren’t at war but they sure don’t like each other very much. Weres see vampires as a drain on resources because they require more blood than other Lilim, and vampires see weres as pretentious, judgmental prisses; which they really are. Emma and Auris’ relationship is very unique and rare among the Lilim.
