- Ariel Perez, Code Name: Oriole, is an Imperial Agent and licensed Bloodhunter. Bloodhunters are individuals who can detect parties that are infused with greater magic, such as Fireblood or Stormblood. Bloodhunters can sense the energies surrounding these targets even if the target is not working their will and conjuring spells. Ariel's role is seeking to capture Blooded members of Ilysium's ton who have committed some crime against the crown.
- Ariel is an Imperial loyalist whose past is partially obscured from a form of memory loss. She recalls receiving training in the Imperial Academy on Olympia, but she also has memories of living in the Expanse, the various colonies and backwaters that lie due north of decadent Ilysium. Every once in awhile she is hit by some image of her past, or meets an NPC that knew Ariel before her time at the academy.
- In addition to her training with pistol and sword, Ariel also knows martial arts that emphasizes strong blows into weak points of the body. When she is on the hunter, she is determined to use whatever she has at her disposal to bring a target back for the bounty.
