Aria is seen in most of the Blood and Sand episodes. At one of Batiatus' parties, she is seen having intercourse with Varro, who is then asked to perform again for Ilithyia's entertainment. She is seen as Batiatus' sex slave, both in the second episode and in Whore, engaging in sexual intercourse forced with her master. She later joins the rebellion in the final episode.

  • The name Aria has Judean origins, based on the Hebrew feminim namewhich means "lioness". Or it could come from the greek Ariadne which means 'pure' . Or it could also derive from the Sanskrit "Arya" , which means "noble, pure".
  • The Latin term for a female slave used for sex is a Concubina, the origin of 'concubine'. Note that a Concubina could just as well be a freewoman as well as a slave. The masculine equivalent is a Concubinus.
