Arabella was captured and tortured by the Carlisle dragon hunter clan at the age of 17. She is smart and able to speak her mind to those she knows and trusts, but keeps her distance from most other people. She has limited conversations with her dragon and only shifts when she can’t keep it from happening any longer. Arabella volunteered to be the first foster from Stonefire to go to the Lochguard clan because she wanted to try to have a fresh start. Throughout the series, she develops a relationship with Finn that helps her rebuild her relationship with her dragon and come out of her shell. Ara is great with computers and usually has a laptop with her wherever she goes.
