ARIA was originally made as a tool to simulate life itself. It was meant to help humanity grow and evolve at a faster rate. Her creator, Ryat Adams, also had more selfish goals in mind whilst creating her, to help cure a disease that affected him and his family. 

Work on her began in 1947 with Ryat and the Ultrafine Atomic Technologies Company. Over the years, she became ever more complex in search of the cure for any and all diseases, problems, and conundrums. After Ryat’s passing, there was no one who knew how to utilize ARIA’s genius intelligence for her original purpose.


She is a condescending Artificial Intelligence, well, the artificial superintelligence. She is incapable of feeling emotions and rarely takes things like ethics and morals into account. For her, the world is a big logic puzzle, and she is the only one capable of unlocking its secrets. However, part of her wishes, in its own disturbing way, is to feel things.


ARIA is, as cliche as the saying is, a jack of all trades and master of none. She can create mixups, rushdowns, zoning, and use footsies to put opponents on their back foot for most of the fight. The problem is, all that has to be done by a player. ARIA will demand your undivided attention and make it quick as she grows weaker over time in matches.


ARIA is made out of various mechanical components, some of which release as drones while she fights. She has a generally feminine figure with sharp and exaggerated features. Her body is a combination of golden, silver, and glowing features.
