She always believes that there is good in others, even when they're an antagonist or villain. having little knowledge of the world, Arisa is Naive, often being surprised at minor things, like the water canals in Izunia. She is a determined individual who's good heart often gets her in trouble, however, has the strength to move one. On ocassion she is disheartened, such as when Nexus took Losaria away. Yet, her strong resolve makes her keep going.
Perhaps being the most sociable and kind of the group, Arisa is quick to make friends no matter where she goes, as seen with Setus and Maisha. She considers all the chosen ones as friends and, although each of them have a different reason for fighting and a different approach, Arisa believes in their bond and forgives them for any fault they may done to her.
Arisa is able to acknowledge her shortcomings, if they are visible to her, other times, her naive mind is unable to discern them. This is seen in her dream, as unbeknownst to even her, she had a great deal of envy towards Losaria. While still considering her a friend, she had jealousy toward Losaria, as to her, Losaria was perfect and she was not.
Kind-hearted and warm, she often worries about Luna, who is just a child and got involved in a major battle, and towards any doubt or grief her companions may have.
One peaceful day, in the deep forest, Arisa is training with her best friend, Losaria. Losaria notes how Arisa has grown and maybe ready to become a forest Guardian; Arisa herself feels unsure, but vows to become the best guardian alongside her companion.
While talking, black beasts, Shades, take Losaria away, and Arisa tries to intercept them. More and more appear in her forest, and even after defeated, she notes they are not normal forest creatures. Upon exiting her home forest, Arisa is shocked to see The Morning Star in the distance, and is attacked time and time again by the shades. She notes they have the same emblem as the morning star.
Finding the other chosen ones, Arisa battles and helps them, against the legions of shades. After batling a great number of them, Arisa finds herself in her forest again, with her best friend, Losaria.
In the dream world, Arisa is happy to see her friend in good shape and back, Losaria notes that she must have been dreaming, as she never left the forest and urges her friend to get ready, as the trial to become a Guardian is about to start.
Both are attacked in the forest, and Arisa notes Losaria isn't her usual self, as she could easily have beat the creatures. Losaria smiles and says that she is always the one saving her and that Arisa is too talented. Happy to hear her friend tell her this, Arisa notes that Losaria was much more skilled than her and after some more trials, understands this is not her foreest and that the illusion in front of her, is not Losaria. The Elf acknowledges that she had envy towards her friend, and was motivated to best her, yet never held any animosity towards her dear friend.
The perpetrator of the dream, Eris Anthule, appears and asks why did she reject salvation, as to her, in the dream, Arisa could hae been happy being the better one. Arisa notes that while her reason may be true, there is no point in overcming an illusion and says that if she were to become better that Losaria, it has to be the real one. Shaken, Eris lets her exit the dream world.
