This barely audible orderly was assigned to assist Class Zero. She never speaks unless spoken to—and even then she doesn't say much, but one cannot help but sense something buried behind her breathy muttering and mumbling...
Aria Luricara (アリア・ルリカラ, Aria Rurikara?), known as Aria Rurikara in the "Doomtrain" fan-translation, is a supporting character from Final Fantasy Type-0. She is a subordinate of Class Zero who sells items.
According to the Rubicus, Aria is 15 years old and 4'9" tall. She has short brunette hair and steel gray eyes. Her outfit consists of white, dark gray and burgundy with a grey-and-white hat, dark vest with a red ribbon and a white blouse underneath, red skirt and dark thigh-high socks and leather boots.
She is quiet and obedient, often to the point that others have to tell her to speak up. Although appearing submissive, Aria is actually a foul-mouthed individual capable of speaking without a filter. It was her mother who forbade her from speaking in such a crude way, resulting in the passive individual known to Class Zero. When given the permission to speak freely, she cracks and becomes boisterous and impulsive. She was said to have received that tendency of speech from her deceased father who lived in a small town near the Concordian border where people used such speech commonly.
Aria can be found in the Entrance during the morning, afternoon and evening.
Aria inherited a crude way of speaking from her father, and her exasperated mother forbade her from speaking unless spoken to. Aria joined Akademeia and becomes the Class Zero orderly when the cadets are officially enrolled, selling them items, but hardly speaks a word even when addressed. When she accompanies Class Zero to Ingram she is encouraged by King and Deuce to be more friendly, which results in her unveiling her true loud and cheerful personality. Aria explains she had repressed her true nature due to her mother's instruction to not get on people's nerves. King quickly tires of her and suggests she continue heeding her mother's advice.
Nearby, an imperial trooper notes how much Aria resembles a girl from a Bashtar family portrait hanging in the hotel. The Bashtar family's daughter was said to have died, but the soldier finds Aria's resemblance to her uncanny.
When the rest of Class Zero encounters a crystal jammer inside Hotel Armada, Aria delivers a warning from Kurasame. She is shot by a Militesi sniper, and is presumed dead by Class Zero. In actuality, she is healed before being placed under the watch of Militesi General Qator Bashtar.
Following Qator's demise in preventing the Ultima Bomb from destroying the capital, Aria is found wandering Ingram by two Militesi Soldiers. Because Qator had died, the Crystal erased all memories of him; thus, Aria and the Militesi soldiers are bewildered and cannot recall that she had been put under their watch. Remembering only the fact that she came to Ingram with Class Zero and that she was shot, Aria tries to recall the person who saved her. However, the Militesi soldiers shoot her before she could say anything, leaving her motionless on the ground.
As she lay dying, Aria lurches upon a strange sensation that somehow restores her memory. She begins to recall memories of her family, realizing that the person who raised her wasn't even her mother and ruminating upon the fact that she was trying to use Qator to fill the void caused by her family's absence. In her final moments, she comes to proclaim that she has finally found what she has been looking for before passing away.
