Ariella Rahl is the daughter of Richard Rahl, and Denna, the Chosen Mord'Sith. She herself is training to be her mother's heir, to stand by her brother when they are in charge of Da'Hara. She is steadfast and strong, and very no-nonsense. She does have a sense of humor, but she has to be very close to a person to show it. All of Denna's scariness with some of Richard's heart make for an interesting girl.
