Mermaid Heel Guild
Arania is a slim woman of average height with long, pale green hair, kept in a distinctive haircut: her hair is gathered on the back of her head and tied into a series of massive, dreadlock-like curls jutting outwards. She has pale skin and black eyes with long eyelashes, and her lips appear to be covered in light-colored lipstick. She has a curvaceous body, and hanging from her ears are a pair of spherical blue earrings.
Arania's shapely figure is hugged by a tight-fitting, full-body mustard suit, leaving only her hands and head exposed, which, befitting her general, spider-like theme, is entirely covered in a pattern representing a spider web. This distinctive outfit has elongated parts composed of fishnet in correspondence to the outer sides of Arania's thighs; she's not shown wearing any footwear, with the suit covering her feet as well.
Arania appears to usually retain a laid-back demeanor, and is also shown to be quite teasingly flirtatious, greeting the audience of the Grand Magic Games with an air kiss and referring to Ren Akatsuki with the intimate form Ren-chan as she jokingly asked him whether Mages from the Blue Pegasus guild could really attack women. However, she did show concern for her team's performance in the Games, worryingly noting that Beth taking just 3 points in the Hidden event wasn't good, and disconsolately admitting that she had let her guard down following her defeat at Ren's hands.
Grand Magic Games arcEdit
Arania, alongside Team Mermaid Heel, passed the Grand Magic Games' preliminary event, Sky Labyrinth, in 6th place. She later appears at the Domus Flau Stadium as one of the participants for her all-female guild. Beth competes for the Team in the first event, Hidden, but loses. Arania Web doesn't like the result, but Risley then says that Beth did her best. She is later chosen to fight in the second battle of the first day against Ren Akatsuki of Blue Pegasus. At first, neither of the two Mages seem to have the advantage and Arania is able to damage Ren with her Web Magic. However, she is ultimately defeated by Ren's Aerial Phose.
At the end of the Third Day's events, Arania is seen exiting the stadium alongside her team, when suddenly her team-mate Kagura Mikazuchi starts to cough and feel sick, falling to the ground. Arania is the first to notice, and kneels down telling Kagura to hang on while the others call for help. Kagura, however, stands up and tells the girls to not to worry, leaving them confused about what is going on.
As the final day of the Grand Magic Games gets under way, the teams and their current positions are announced by the three announcers as the viewers cheer and welcome them. Arania enters the stadium with her team currently standing in third place.
As the announcers explain the rules of the event, Arania is shown with the rest of her team listening. Soon, she, along with Beth, is defeated by Ren, Eve and Hibiki. From the sidelines, Arania begs Kagura to do her best against Erza and Minerva, worrying about the outcome of the battle with Beth and Risley. Arania then watches the battle unfold with the rest of the stadium. After Minerva unleashes her Yagdo Rigora, Arania is disgusted at the sight of Millianna in pain due to Minerva's Magic. As Erza and Kagura start fighting, Erza tells Kagura that it was her weakness that caused Simon's death, Kagura's brother. As Kagura grips her sword, Arania senses what she is about to do and, worried, shouts out her name.
Arania, along with her teammates, watches as Erza is able to attack back for the first time, apparently knocking Kagura unconscious, which disturbs Arania, since Kagura had drawn her sword. Arania is soon shocked to see Minerva stab Kagura from behind, claiming five points for defeating the Mermaid Heel leader. Along with Risley, Arania is shocked at the explanation of Minerva's Magic. Moments later, Arania descends to the arena; helping the injured Kagura, and, with a smile on her face, looks on as Fairy Tail is cheered for.
Before the team have a chance to celebrate their performance in the Games, Arania and the rest of her Mermaid Heel comrades are called to the center of Crocus by the King himself, Toma E. Fiore, who tells the huge group of Mages of the incoming Dragon attack stated to be happening the following day. Begging for the Mages assistance in defeating the national threat, Arania and her team confidentially agree to help. When Kagura also agrees to participate despite her injuries, the members of Team Quatro Puppy scream that they are all wild, though Arania corrects them, stating they are more sexy. As the Guilds continue to fight the Dragons to no avail, Natsu Dragneel bellows out and is heard throughout the vicinity, receiving Arania and the rest of her guildmate's attention, stating that Dragon Slayer Magic is what is required to defeat the Dragons.
Magic and AbilitiesEdit
Web Magic: Arania, true to her spider theme, has been shown capable of generating spider webs from her body. Like their real counterparts, appear to be sticky, something which makes it possible for Arania to entangle foes with them.
- Web Shot: Arania crosses her arms before her, with the left one of top and the right one below it, and points her hands' palms towards the ground. Thick Web is generated from her hands, being released over a large area in front of her in a series of "shots" which grow larger as they move away from the spot where they're produced. Such webs can entangle targets through their sticky properties, sticking to opponents while at the same time going past them in their linear trajectory; however, the effective hold they have on enemies is debatable, as Ren Akatsuki could easily escape it by leaping backwards once struck. (Unnamed)
- Arania is a homophone for the Spanish word "Araña" which means Spider.

- In Volume 32's extra content, Mashima provided the battle statistics for 31 of the 40 X791 contestants in the Grand Magic Games. The stats, however, were provided not from Mashima's point-of-view as the author but from the view point of Sorcerer Magazine reporter Jason. Which explains why some stats are missing and why others may be inaccurate. According to Jason from the Sorcerer Magazine, during her participation in the Grand Magic Games of X791, Arania's stats are:
