Fire aura will only damage your hero's opponents. In the glossary of abilities, whenever you see 'opponents' you can assume that means the monsters/enemies you will be fighting. Anything that affects you (the reader) will refer to the 'hero'. Hope that makes sense.
So equipping the fire aura cloak means that all the hero's opponents will take 1 damage at the end of each combat round. Note that, unlike venom, you don't need to wound them first. This is automatic damage that happens at the end of round 1 for the duration of the combat.
