Coronado was an Aurelian , and the leader of the Aurelian Eighth Echelon. Coronado commanded the fleet that invaded and destroyed Medea, Hearth, Bodicea, and other worlds of the Perseus Quadrant.
Coronado appeared as a female when she received the leadership of the planet Bodicea. But later took a male form once the planet had been conquered. (Aurelians were capable of having their minds transplanted into new bodies. The pituitary and pineal fluids of pre-adolescent humans facilitated this exchange.) (Book 03: Bodicea )
