|~ Aranea in Episode Prompto.|
Aranea Highwind is a boss and a guest party member in Final Fantasy XV. She is a mercenary who serves as the commodore of the Niflheim Empire's Third Army Corps 87th Airborne Unit. Her skill in aerial combat and wielding of a lance makes her akin to a Dragoon, a traditional job class from the Final Fantasy series.
Aranea is a hard-edged and free-spirited former mercenary whose loyalty and motivations are ambiguous. While she ranks high within the empire, she is unafraid to speak about her distrust of other high ranking officials. Despite her status, she addresses others in a casual manner and is rather mischievous. She chooses her own path and encourages others to do the same.
