Augris was a member of the Mokra Order, Third Magistrate overseeing the Alsurian homeworld. In 2372, Augris had Starfleet officers B'Elanna Torres and Tuvok of USS Voyager imprisoned as suspected members of the resistance movement active on the planet. Kathryn Janeway escaped and was harbored by Caylem whose wife and daughter were members of the resistance and had been arrested by Augris.
Chakotay contacted Augris, and explained that his crewmates were not members of the resistance, but were seeking to buy tellerium. The Mokra magistrate refused to provide information on the missing crewmembers, and pretended that he was unaware of their whereabouts. Augris ordered Voyager not to make a rescue attempt and when they did, he ordered the ship fired upon. Janeway and Caylem were able to rescue Torres and Tuvok from the prison, but ran into Augris. Augris revealed to Caylem that his wife and daughter were dead. He was fatally stabbed by Caylem. (VOY: "Resistance")
