| In the Warlock, he is captured, I think. When he breaks free from his chains while talking to Aten it says that shadows gather around him. And yes, he would have to use his aura for the hook to power it. The hook, I think just channels it. |
Remember, though, he says that he has no aura. I believe that the hook naturally draws on it to power itself, so the hook performs the magic, not his aura, the aura is just the energy that feeds the hook. However, I believe that he is able to draw up his aura for a short time, as he does at the end of the series, though he does not need to to perform magic as usual, as he has the hook.
