Icon - Ara.png Ara[edit]

[The daughter of the Haan Family in Northern Fluone]

Special Ability[edit]

Main Article: Power of Eun

Ara also has a unique trait that separates her from the others; the "Energy" she uses, which can be used as a substitute for MP. Ara's Awakening is similar to that of Chung's Freiturnier in that 3 awakening beads will bring on a change in appearance. In Ara's case, she gains the tails of a 9-tailed fox, and white hair.

Background[edit]

Main Article: A burning village
  • In-game Version

Her brother Aren gets possessed by a demon and ends up destroying his own village and family as 'Ran' while looking for the 'Moon El'.

Trivia[edit]

  • Ara's job path in Lore/Story would be the Apsara path.
  • Ara's official theme song is Changing Colors.
  • Ara encounters the main cast after the Halls of Water story quest Rescuing the Water Priestess and formally joins the group after the Hamel story quest El Lady and the Prophecy along with Chung and Add. Prior to joining the main cast, all dungeons will re-use one of 3 generic dungeon clear lines.
    • Prior to the early game Epic Quest rework, Ara would appear in the Feita and Velder CGI clear cutscenes, though this was never referenced in the Epic Quest dialogue.
    • Her animated class videos depict her attaining 1st and 2nd job in Northern Empire prior to departing for Hamel despite not being a playable segment in game.
  • Eun is based off the nine-tailed fox, a species of creature depicted in the Shan Hai Jing as having the voice of a human infant. It can be eaten by humans, and those who eat it will be protected from evil.
  • While Eun's seal is supposedly the entirety of the white fox-shaped hairpin, further job advancements show that it is actually the small orange gem embedded in it that is Eun's real seal, being the only consistent object part of each path's hair decorations.
  • Ara's full name, Ara Haan, was probably based on the term "Arhat" (or "Arahant"), from the Buddhism, that means: "one who is worthy", "a perfected person who has attained nirvana".
  • Ara is from Fahrmann, in the Northern Xin Empire. This region has not currently been explored during the main story with the exception of the Raid Fahrmann's Peak and Ara's tutorial A burning village.
    • While the region itself is called Fahrmann, Ara comes specifically from the village of Isshin, which is known for housing the Moon El as well as the sacred beast hairpin Eun.
  • Ran, the main antagonist during the events of Hamel, was once known as Aren Haan and is Ara's older brother.
  • Ara is the only character that does not speak her skill names in English when using skills. Instead, she says various phrases in the language of the server you are on.
  • Ara is the first character to have a different color outline when attacking. Her outline is yellow, while all prior characters' outlines are blue.
  • Ara's design is influenced by Eastern culture and religion. This makes her job names to be written in Chinese on the Korean server.
    • All of Ara's job names are direct transcriptions from Chinese to Hangul, which in most cases, due to the religious ties between the two languages, means the Korean name has the exact same meaning as the Chinese name and are pronounced almost the same. In other cases, however, such as Devi, the Korean might not mean anything outright, with the name's origin solely coming from the given Chinese name.
  • Ara's base job quest name; 小侠 (Little Xia), means a person who is young and brave/chivalrous in English.
    • In the Chinese version of Hall of El (Trial), Ara mentioned if she wouldn't save Elsword, she would 'lose her duty to being a martial arts master'. In ancient China, '侠' (Xia) is used to describe people who save others by using their abilities, especially martial arts.
  • While not mentioned in-game, the martial art that Ara practices uses Qigong as its base, the act of using ones own "Chi" or life energy (which is what her system is based on) to meditate and calm the mind. Many aspects of the practice can be seen in various skills in all paths, such as the various animal motifs for her secret arts. Each of her advancements approach the concept in different ways:
    • Apsara focuses more on her martial prowess, using Qigong only when the situation demands it, as seen through her plethora of 10 Energy cost skills, with little other skills consuming her Energy.
    • Devi masters Qigong to continuously cycle her life energy, using and restoring it at equal pace, as seen through most of her skills consuming large amounts of energy but also recovering a lot when converted, with multiple passives directly referring to Chi itself (rather than the usual in-game term of "Energy").
    • Shakti forgoes training her Qigong due to her reliance on Eun's powers, resulting in the system taking a more passive approach, with most skills being usable regardless of how much Energy is available.
    • Likewise, Surya focuses largely on aiding the various spirits of holy beasts she encounters, drawing on their power instead of her own Energy, using it exclusively to help those around her.
  • Ara and Elesis are the only characters to utilize their pre-renewal portraits as their Epic Quest portraits.
  • Ara is depicted as being a bit of an airhead, being very clumsy and often making mistakes while being bad at dancing. Like Aisha, she's also afraid of insects.
  • Ara wrote the skill note Shadow Spear Technique and True Moonlight Slash.
  • Same with several other characters, Ara shared her canon birthday with her release date in the Korean server.
  • The side story My Brother & I 2 looks into Ara's family history.
    • It is revealed that Ara's mother is her father's second wife. This resulted in many of her siblings other than Aren looking down on her.
    • It is also revealed that besides Aren, Ara has at least 3 stepsisters and one other stepbrother.
  • Ara is currently the only playable character to be depicted as being explicitly left-handed in combat.


Generic Clear LinesPrior to joining the El search Party
[edit]

  • Ara: Hoo...the training is complete!! I hope I didn't make any mistakes.
  • Ara: Hmm... But my martial arts skills are not enough to rescue my brother...
    I need to train harder!!
  • Ara: With Eun's Blessing, I am confident it will lead me to him!!
