Ara is the wish granting Sea Witch. She was sealed away by Garam and Nari in the past, but broke free after the seal weakened from an unknown reason.
Ara uses her magic to grant the contractee's wish. However, the wish usually gets granted in a twisted way, and it eventually leads to the contractee's demise. Despite this, those blinded by their wishes still seek out Ara and tragedy repeats itself. As damages began to mount uncontrollably, those with the will to do so, set out to take Ara down. However, Ara gained copious amount of power and magic. So even the most famous sages failed to take her down. Had Ara not paraded her power and came upto land, Garam and Nari might have failed as well. Due to this, she holds resentment towards Garam and Nari. She's plotting her revenge and swears she'll decorate her room with fox pelts by skinning Garam and Nari. Ara was defeated once, but she considers Garam and Nari's personal skills to be way below hers. She just thinks she was caught off guard. Ara boasts she'll win if they fought again.
The contract between Ara is established by offering her tribute The type of tribute is decided by what Ara wants at the moment, and it's usually something precious to the contractee Ara has a hobby of collecting beautiful and luxurious items, so she sometimes asks for simple luxury items. At times, she asks for a tribute that's too expensive compared to the wish. Luckily, the contractee gives up and returns. All of the collected treasure is hidden within Ara's mansion deep in the seas depths. Since her collection was gathered from a long time ago, it rivals that of the Rah Empire. A few brave souls who heard the rumor jump into the sea, but only bubbles returned to the surface.
In truth, Ara doesn't intentionally twist the contractee's wish to cause them pain. She wholeheartedly grants the contractee's wish, but just doesn't recognize her methods to be wrong. Ara is a separate entity from humans, so she doesn't properly understand the values, and morals of the Human World.
Her impatient personality and over confidence makes her assume and make conclusions too quickly. Ara still thinks the attempts to take her down were caused by everyone being jealous of her. When she realizes she made a mistake, Ara gets severely embarrassed. Ara thinks this tarnishes her perfect image and tries her best to act naturarl. Her human part plays it off very well, but her tentacles respond like a puppy's tail to emtions and gives away her being flustered.
Like an octopus, she has superb regeneration. Both her human and octopus parts are the main body, so she can regenerate whichever part that gets destroyed. The regeneration usually takes place at the one that has more left, but the regeneration site is upto Ara's will. It's unknown about how the unregenerated part gets processed.
