Evolve or die. Make your choice.
~ ARIA's intro quote


ARIA, an abbreviation standing for Advanced Robotics Intelligence Architecture, is a character introduced in Season 2 of Killer Instinct (2013). An artificial superintelligence created by Ultratech's founder, Ryat Adams, ARIA was designed to direct the evolution of humanity and ensure its long-term survival. The AI has since taken control of Ultratech, and mysteriously alternates between an antagonist to the human heroes and a foil to the demonic forces of Gargos. ARIA's body is supposed to represent a Valkyrie so that she would look like a savior and because humans are more comfortable with female robots.
