reference - Ari Picture

I said I might do new references of the cyclops trio, and so here they are! This is Ari. On the old reference sheet there's a little more info about their design and name meanings in text form around the page, but as you can see there is no text here floating around. Her name is short for Arimaspi, which is the name of a race of cyclops people from Greek mythology.

I also put things in her snail-shell bag based on what the figure I made of her has, and I put a bird limb-bone in her hands just because.

Name - Arimaspi
Gender - female
Voice - Jennifer Tilly [ Celia - [Monsters] Inc. ]
Arimaspi is a member of the cyclops trio. She's named after a mythical race from Scythia that were constantly stealing gold from gryphons - and a member of this race could be told by the single eye they possessed. Most just call her 'Ari', as it's easier to remember than her full name.

Her name suits her, as she is always scurrying around and snatching up anything that catches her fancy. She once tried to pick up something that was half-embedded in the ground, not knowing that she was standing on top of a very thin roof to a hollow space in the ground - when she finally wrenched it free, the roof collapsed, and she fell down and broke the upper part of her left arm. She now wears half of a nail as a splint to keep it in place.

Ari is a mellow individual. Even though she has the same temperament of a carefree girl, she has a morbid side to her that often surprises and unnerves others once she shows it. Hagen could do nothing but stare in shock and repress the urge to retch the first time she began to raid a human corpse for any 'goodies', as she called them, even going as far as to crawl inside of its clothing in search of hidden pockets, and half-crawl inside its mouth to check for any gold tooth fillings. Nothing seems to scare her, or gross her out. She has been forbidden from getting within two feet of any kind of corpse that still has flesh on it, human or otherwise, as she has tried to harvest actual human body parts, such as bits of skin to tan into a 'nice leather', and fingernails to make armor. The creepiest part about this is how enthusiastically she clambers around corpses, peering inside orifices, sometimes singing or humming to herself as she does so.

Once you get past that delightful little quirk, Ari is a fun person to be around. She seems to get along with most individuals, though people that give her a hard time about her interests get a taste of her bad side.
