Ari does appear to be somewhat humanoid, but there are many things that set her apart from most humans. She is covered in a thin layer of dark grey downy feathers except for on her chest and neck, where the feathers are mostly white. She has talons for hands, with, long, hooked claws on them, but the fingers are arranged in a way that she is able to pick things up like a human can. Probably the most distinguishing things about her are her wings and her feathered tail, which look almost exactly like a larger version of a peregrine falcon's. She has a long, hooked, yellow beak instead of a nose and mouth.
Like a human, she has hair. It is long, straight, and pure black. Her eyes also look like the average human's, only the irises are a bit wider. They are a deep rich brown. Since she is an anthro, she still has a human-like structure, despite some of her animal features. She usually wears a sweater, narrow glasses, dark-colored long pants, and worn-down sneakers. She won't wear anything she doesn't find comfy or cozy. She is somewhat short and thin. She almost always has 2 feathers tucked behind her left ear.
Ari is a very intelligent person. She is able to work through problems well with an analytical mind and is very cunning. She finds riddles and puzzles easier than most people because of her cleverness. She enjoys learning, so she can commonly be found reading, often being teased for being a bookworm.
Ari can be described as confident. She isn't necessarily arrogant, but she is quite assertive. She will do what it takes to get something done, and she rarely ever shows doubt or hesitation when making choices, almost always appearing certain. She can't stand having her pride being wounded and will do almost anything to keep her dignity. This leads her to being too prideful at times, but she is willing to get her point across and make sure everyone knows who's in charge.
Despite being so assertive, if something doesn't catch her attention, she is very quiet and does not speak much. She prefers to be alone most of the time, enjoying her privacy and being somewhat introverted. Ari will talk and have conversations with others; she just would rather not do so. It's hard for her to make friends sometimes because of her quietness.
