Brief History: Aria grew up in the bad part of New York. Her mother didn’t have a decent job and they were barely making ends meet. Aria found herself around drug-dealers, thieves and just dangerous people in general. She found she had a knack for stealing and deception, so she became a con-artist. Stealing money and pawning whatever she could find in the better part of the city. Her mother then got a huge promotion and they moved away from the slums to the bustling and expensive city life. Aria found herself around the people she had envied and stole from. She made a good little name for herself in the cop’s records. Her mother didn’t understand her daughter until she remembered who her father was. She came clean to Aria and told her about Hermes. Turns out that Joanna had been a bit of a wild child and had been even worse than Aria. In order to prevent Aria doing anything even more dangerous and irrational, she took her to Camp-Half Blood and Aria, bored of her New York con-artist gig, went willingly.

Her face is heart shaped and her nose and jawline are nearly straight. She has long, messy black hair and slender, chocolate brown eyes.
