After being shot in the hand during the BluSky mission, part of one of her arms has been replaced by a prosthetic from the forearm down.[4]

On September, she spends part of the time in the seafoam and dark blue EarthHome Presents: House Blueworld uniform.

After the September Incident, she usually wears variations on an outfit consisting of a white jacket with gold detailing and long coattails, high boots, black tights, and/or a red cape.[5][6] At the ball, she wears a red mermaid-style dress.[5]

History and Involvement[edit | edit source]

Aria was 17 when she first contracted with JoyPark, changing her name and signing away rights to her own image. She worked with them for years. After leaving her job, she became a smuggler and lounge singer before being turned by Paisley Moon onto the idea of fixer work.[3] As of her first appearance in "I Would Like A Bribe", she is about 26.[8]

Aria is part of the missions to retrieve Cene Sixheart and Orth Godlove.

During the period between "Our Hostage Below" and "A Thing You Know About Nightclubs", she takes part in three missions. Mako runs a mission against Liberty and Discovery Automaticorps, where Aria is in charge of extraction. AuDy also breaks into a Liberty and Discovery Automaticorps facility with Aria and steals information on robot intelligence. Finally, Aria and AuDy transport surveyors onto Weight for Orth and the Consolidated Counterweight Technocracy.[8]

Aria also participates in the Gnosis virus mission and the mission to steal the golden orb. While the Chime enter the memory farm, she relives Jace's memories of the Kingdom. During the September Incident, she experiences false memories of being a September Institute student and member of House Blueworld.

Relationships[edit | edit source]

Jamil[edit | edit source]

Jamil and Aria are BFFs who feed each other fries.

Jacqui Green[edit | edit source]

Jacqui and Aria initially clash during the scramble for the Gnosis virus. They meet again when Aria tries to save Jamil from being kidnapped by Jacqui. Aria is unsuccessful at beating her, but charms her at the last possible moment into agreeing to go on a date with her (and in the end to joining the Chime as they leave Counterweight). They start forming a more solid romantic connection during their journey to September, after Jacqui learns that Aria is the real Aria Joie and not just a cosplaying fangirl; they make the song "Love's First Explosion" together.
