Ariana was one of those artisans who got a pass on the laws against humans touching metal, because the orcs were particularly lazy about maintaining their gear. A thoughtful, meditative sort (despite being built like a mountain of muscle), long hours reflecting on the simple joy of crafting forged a tenuous (and mostly unconscious) connection with the long-forgotten forge-god Völundr. She had no qualms about putting herself at risk to help others, frequently leveraging her position of favor to get better treatment for her fellows and taking it very personally when she failed to aid them. Recruiting her to the Resistance was practically inevitable, and she helped kick off the first ambush in early 508 ANI.

In May 508, Ariana began serving on the Ruling Council as Regina Sacrorum, head of the priesthoods. In June of 508, she forged an axe that she named 'Völundr's Word', which could summon various servitors of the forge-god to her aid. Much of her time between June and October 508 was spent on the road with the Liberation's armies, where she serves primarily as an administrator and coordinator for the vast logistics network that sprawls across Hanist and half of Zerniless.

Enchantments:
Völundr's Word [69]: A Very Fine, Balanced, Silver-Coated Axe with Pick (2d+4 cut, 2d+3 imp in Ariana's hands), made of polished silver-coated steel and decorated with bronze rings along the haft. When Ariana wields it, the blade becomes a crescent of blazing energy that can cut through steel like butter and be thrown at enemies (even bouncing off of surfaces to hit them). It is capable of parrying after attacks and always returns to her hand if dropped or thrown.
Cutting Attack sw+5 (Armor Divisor 5, +150%; Based on Axe/Mace, +0%; Incendiary, +10%; Range 25/50, +0%; Melee Attack, Destructive Parry, +10%; Melee-Capable Ranged Attack, Reach 1, +15%; Partial Dice, 1 pt, *0.25; Ricochet, +10%; ST-Based, Melee Attack, +100%) [36]

Völundr's Bulwark [21 Armor, 18 Choice]: A Balanced Heavy Large Steel Shield; 15 lbs, DB 3, Cover DR 9, HP 26. A solid rectangle of black, unpolished steel featuring Völundr's holy symbol carved into the boss and an etched design of flames over its face.
Völundr's Spark [0]: A perfectly-crafted and fitted suit of blackened orichalcum segmented plate, with Völundr's symbol carved into the pauldrons. It provides full-body DR 13 (11 on the joints), with a one-way translucent facemask that allows unimpeded vision. It weighs just over thirty pounds. When wearing it, Ariana doesn't need to eat, drink, or sleep; she can, with a thought, sprout long spikes of divine fire that impale anyone who tries to get close.
