Ariala lives in the town of Lakeside, Meridell. She is concerned for her daughter, who cannot play in the forest any longer due to wild animals.
Our daughter almost never leaves her bedroom any more. I'm afraid she's going to become a shut-in if she can't go exploring in the forest any more.
As most of Neoquest II takes place inside a computer simulation, it is unclear if Ariala is a character in the real Neopia.
