Little is known about this Arkanian offshoot, except that her birth name was Edessa, given to her by parents she does not remember. Her pointed ears, a feature unseen in other Arkanians, are often brought to attention. Jarael, throughout the series, proves herself to be a master of disguise—so far, she has disguised herself as the Sith Lord from the Jedi Masters' vision, as Q'Anilia, as "Baron Hyro Margryph"'s aide Chantique and as a pure Arkanian. Sometimes, however, the disguises have resulted in her being captured. She has a love-hate relationship with Zayne, moving towards the "love" end of the spectrum in Days/Knights, and a few other characters, such as Rohlan Dyre, Alek Squinquargesimus and Arkoh Adasca, also seem to be at least somewhat romantically interested in her.
