Ariana, from Ultima VI
The daughter of Anya and Matt, the proprietors of the Blue Boar Tavern, Ariana had been training as a bard since she was three years old. When the Avatar spoke with Kenneth, he described the girl as a talented young bard who required little guidance. Kenneth or his wife, Nan, would reveal that Ariana had been entrusted with the Rune of Compassion. Ariana would give the rune to the Avatar if requested, but only after the hero convinced the young girl of the importance of their quest. She still further required that the Champion of Virtue obtain permission from her mother before relinquishing the stone. The young girl also possessed the mantra of Compassion, but was uncertain of its exact pronunciation.
The Ultima 6 Project
The hero could return later during their quest and tell the young girl about what adventures had transpired, choosing to tell either a clean version or one with all the gory details. Also, it was possible to return the rune and later borrow it again, if the need would arise to use the corresponding shrine.
Runes of Virtue
In Runes of Virtue, Ariana could be found within the Cavern of Injustice, where she directed the hero to find a set of magic panpipes that would put monsters to sleep. Later, in Runes of Virtue II, Ariana could be found in a playground in Britain, where she would be most grateful for the return of her uncle Tholden from the clutches of the Black Knight.
