—Ariana to Divine in Mortal Kombat: Tyrants Above

Ariana is a mysterious Edenian woman who made her first appearance and debuted in Mortal Kombat X and later in Mortal Kombat: The New World Order as a main character.

About Ariana

Ariana was spawned from the War between Shinnok and the other Elder Gods. Essence from the Elder Goddess of Light fell from the Heavens into Edenia and formed the immortal Ariana, making her half-Edenian by birth and the direct descendent of an Elder God.

A mysterious woman hailing from Edenia, traveled the world looking for a sacred item that holds the Edenian essence to restore the lands. On a journey to find the essence, Ariana was guided by the light to the path of finding that object. Encountering the likes of Outworld, Ariana sensed that the essence she was looking for was located somewhere in Outworld. Gaining the prestige benefit to be at Kotal Kahn's side in order to search for it, Ariana accepted the invitation to serve him.

Learning that she is from the heavens, Ariana is a demi-god who also protects Earthrealm.

Later on in life, she is married to Divine, another Edenian who hopes for a free Edenia.


Ariana seems to be in her early twenties (7,500 years), almond-shaped coffee-brown eyes, fairly tan skinned, she usually wears eye makeup and light nude lipstick with a shimmer. She has long flowing dark brown hair with a slight curl at the end. She is considered very beautiful as are all Edenian residents.

In Mortal Kombat (2011), being a cameo in Mortal Kombat (2011), Ariana sported a white attire with black and golden accents.

In Mortal Kombat X, Ariana wears, to much to her story, a mysterious-esque hooded ensemble that is colored white. Ariana sports a white choker and crystal jewels. She has on a white top with straps covering her bust which also connects to her hood. She has on sparkling material stocking and sparkling gloves that cover most of her left hand. She also has long strapped boots, blue covers to lace them, white straps and a long loincloth, connected by skinny straps.
