Lucina - Fire Emblem Awakening
Clarent - The Traitor's Sword
Clarent was the sword used by Aradia to betray her father. Lucifer somehow obtained it and gifted it to her once more, with some...modifications.
In addition to the abilities listed in the Abilities section, Clarent can be psychically recalled to Aradia's hand.
Sin Physiology – Like almost all demonic Sins, Aradia has strength, speed, and endurance far exceeding that of a normal human. These abilities are enhanced to the point where she is far stronger than even most demons. She also does not age, and can only be killed permanently by Lucifer – an unlikely prospect, given how slavishly devoted she is to her master.
Sword Proficiency – Aradia has been trained extensively in ancient modes of sword combat. Her time in Alptraum was spent mostly meditating on how she could have won her final battle, and thus her skills aren’t as dull as one would expect them to be.
Elemental Manipulation: Wind – Aradia can manipulate and conjure the element of Wind. She uses it mostly to enhance her already unnatural speed, or slash others at a distance with slashes from her sword.
Mastery over All (Weak) – As the Sin of Entitlement, Aradia believes she has dominion over all individuals. By glaring at a target with her left eye, she can control its actions mentally. Still relatively young, her power at this point can only dominate “lesser” minds (e.g. mundane, non-sentient animals), but in time may extend to include humans and even magical creatures.
Black Queen’s Instinct – Aradia’s left eye gives her the ability to observe and predict fast-moving attacks, which she can then respond to with her aforementioned superhuman speed.
Emotionally, Aradia is still a spoiled little girl who can’t handle being told “no.” Her father told her “no” once upon a time, and she razed his – no, her – kingdom for it. Befitting her Sin’s name, Aradia is a woman who believes that she is queen of all Sium and that everything is thus hers by right.
Underscoring this entitlement is an almost slavish devotion to Lucifer. Aradia considers Lucifer the only real parent she’s ever had, and fights anyone who dares oppose her. The extents of Aradia’s devotion to her new parent are still unknown, but it’s doubtful if anyone is willing to find out.
Aradia has been dead for quite some time, and is thus unfamiliar with current customs. She doesn’t quite know what “sillage” is, nor does she understand what the “Crux Fidelis” do other than claim what is rightfully hers. But that isn’t going to stop her from taking it back.
The House of Parishima was not always the corrupt institution overthrown by the Crux Fidelis. Once upon a time, it was a beacon of nobility – and none exemplified that better than the reign of King Agravain de Parishima. Agravain’s rulership was used as the yardstick by which all other kings and queens were judged, with one notable exception; women. It would be his downfall.
Aradia de Parishima was born Aradia Canossa, King Agravain’s daughter with Lady Diana Canossa, the Duchess of Empyrean. Aradia grew up knowing fully of her pedigree, but was oath-bound to never reveal it until the time was right. “The kingdom will be yours someday,” her mother always told her when she was young. “I swear it.”
When she came of age, her mother sent her off to become one of her father’s knights. Her bravery and skill won her high ranking, as even a bastard could rise through merit in the days of King Agravain. Again, a decision he would soon regret.
In time, the second part of her plan came to fruition. She marched up to her father and revealed her true parentage, demanding in turn her own legitimization.
She was denied.
Agravain was wise to the Countess of Empyrean’s schemes all this time, and knew that he could not allow them to succeed. He could not allow a puppet to rule the kingdom he loved so much. And Aradia – poor Aradia – was to withstand the worst of the consequences.
One night, when the King was away to quell a rebellion in the South, Aradia simply sat upon the throne and proclaimed herself the Black Queen. When the King returned, he found his legitimate children slaughtered, and his retainers all either dead or on Aradia’s side.
The ensuing battle lasted days. Finally, father and daughter lay mortal blows on each other, and Sium was thrust into an age of lawlessness until King Agravain’s younger brother took the throne. Here, the records say no more, and Aradia’s tale ends.
Until three years ago.
Salvation came as a golden-haired, red-eyed goddess. Lucifer broke into the deep layer of Alptraum Aradia was trapped in and freed her, promising her kingdom to her in return for eternal servitude. But more than that, Lucifer is something that she never had – a real parent, not a puppet-master mother or a distant father. Well, at least that’s what Aradia thinks.
