Appearence: Slender with the black cleric robe and manchette. Witches hat. Carryes an elongated katana and always holds a bow handy.
Story: As a Child Aria was kidnapped by one of the six eyed channelers. She was on her way to being taken to the moonlight buttlerfly then transported to the Dukes Archives for Sealth's experiments.
The forest hunter clan saw Seathes minions as invaders and brutally slayed them all, the forest hunters adopted penelopy as their shared apentice where she was taught of many forms of combat: stealth, tactics, assassination, light and heavy weapons. She was taught never to speak, every enemy that cries for help is your kill and every enemy presents an invitation for death.
When Aria turned sixteen she ventured out from the forest, and discovered the abyss. She was gifted and could walk the abyss without help no one knew how nor did she think it unusual and used the abyss as her secret personal training grounds.
When she turned eighteen she discovered a witch in the abyss. Aria was trained to kill outsiders and assassinated the witch with her own knife, her first kill. So exited Aria took the witches hat as a trophy and presented it to the rest of the clan. Most of her mentors were pleased but Alvina was ashamed "Thou shalt not murder those who do not go messing with thy's own business, or else thou art as bad as those we hunt". The rest of the clan had to agree and Penelopy was physicaly punished. After her punishment Alvina asked "Where dids't thou find such a perculiar head piece". Unalbe to speak she carved out a single word in the dirt, "Black". Alvina was they only one who knew what she meant and banished her from the forest claiming that she desecrated the grave of Artorias in order to reach the Abyss.
Aria returned to the abyss as soon as she was able to, this time was different from all the other times she had gone there she felt as if she was being invited there. When she arrived Darkstalker Kaathe greeted her and explained how the witch she had slain was named Beatrice and she planned to kill the Four Kings. As a reward for Kaathe taught her the art of life drain one of the few skills she had not learned. Now that she was free to find her own path she combined the art of life drain and katana skills into the perfect combat style.
When Aria turned twenty one she was attacked by a spirit of vengence and stole his shield before finishing him off with a poisen tipped arrow through the heart. Enraged she murdered the current bishop of velka to send a message to all who knew about her, she ironically cut off his ears and presented it to Darkstalker Kaathe as proof of how amazing and fearless she had become, but that statement was too extreme even for the Kaathe as he knew it would force spirits of vengence to find a way into the abyss. Then for the second time she was banished from a covenant and the last time she walked away from a living thing.
Disclaimer: I wanted to create this back story along the lines of how my main PvP character went to be, she did start in the forest hunter covenant and then convert to the darkwraiths. I also wanted to fit my story into the dark spots of the lore without creating any paradoxes, if you find any confilctions or spelling errors or something don't be afraid to point them out and ill see if i want to change them. (I'm waiting for the DLC to come out on console so I don't know if i'm conflicting anything from the new content).
