Ara also has a unique trait that separates her from the others; the "Spirit Energy" she uses, which can be used as a substitute for MP.
Ara's Awakening is similar to that of Chung's Freiturnier in that 3 awakening beads will bring on a change in appearance. In Ara's case, she gains the tails of a 9-tailed fox, and white hair.
- Main Article: A burning village
The young lady Ara of the Haan warrior family in Fluone's Northern Empire is a skilled martial artist specializing in the spear. One day, she came very close to death when her brother Aren, now known as Ran, came upon the Dark El, transformed into a demon, and led other demons to attack and destroy their village.
At that moment, she found the heirloom—an old hairpin, from which a spirit's powers emerged to help her drive the demons away. It was the spirit of the nine-tailed fox named Eun. The spirit agrees to keep lending Ara her abilities in order to find Aren, and in return, Ara promises to help Eun find El that is strong enough to set her free from the heirloom. In awakening, Eun's mythical presence takes over Ara. Soon, in her journey to find Ran, Ara meets Elsword and the El Search Party. Together, they may yet recover Aren and the El.
- Main Article: My Brother & I
In the Northern Empire, resides a martial arts family, known for having sealed the destructive Spiritual Beast, Eun. After the great El explosion, the Haan family was able to wield the power of the Moon El after it flew into their territory following the great El explosion, turning them into fierce warriors. This did not sit well with others in the capital, who tried to quell their power by appointing the eldest son, Aren as the capital's guard captain. Within the family, some Ara's siblings weren't too pleased with her and her mother being a part of the family, all except Aren who treated her like a sibling. She tried her best to be as perfect as can be, in order to avoid being teased by her other siblings, but due to Aren's respect for her, she was able to withstand the teasing from her other siblings, knowing that at least one of them cared for her.
Ara saw herself as a failure who despite her best efforts, continued to fail at martial arts. Aren showed up to ease her resentful mind, and ordered her to spar with him. After pushing her to do her best, she defeated him, much to his amazement as he encouraged her to continue devoting herself to training. During a festival worshiping the Spiritual Beast, Ara struggled to find excuses to avoid participating in a sparring contest, in fear of soiling her family's reputation. As she hid, she overheard members of the Zhen family questioning the Haan family's reputation after defeating her siblings in sparring, including Aren who had previously injured his arm. Aren pointed out there was one participant remaining, which was Ara, who he escorted to the arena. Remembering her brother's words of encouragement, she managed to defeat the Zhen family participants, earning the Haan family the final victory of the sparring contest. Aren smiled in delight at her accomplishment, knowing that she was on the path to becoming a great warrior.

- Ara's job path in Lore/Story would be the Apsara path.
- Ara officially joins the main cast after the Hall of Water story quest Water Priestess Rescue.
- Eun is based off the nine-tailed fox, a species of creature depicted in the Shan Hai Jing as having the voice of a human infant. It can be eaten by humans, and those who eat it will be protected from evil.
- While Eun's seal is supposedly the entirety of the white fox-shaped hairpin, further job advancements show that it is actually the small orange gem embedded in it that is Eun's real seal, being the only consistent object part of each path's hair decorations.
- Ara's full name, Ara Haan, was probably based on the term "Arhat" (or "Arahant"), from the Buddhism, that means: "one who is worthy", "a perfected person who has attained nirvana"
- Ara is from Fahrmann, in the Northern Xin Empire. This region has not currently been explored during the main story with the exception of the Raid Fahrmann's Peak and Ara's tutorial A burning village.
- While the region itself is called Fahrmann, Ara comes specifically from the village of Isshin, which is known for housing the Moon El as well as the sacred beast hairpin Eun.
- Ran, the main antagonist during the events of Hamel, was once known as Aren Haan and is Ara's older brother.
- Ara is the only character that does not speak her skill names in English when using skills. Instead, she says various phrases in the language of the server you are on.
- Ara is the first character to have a different color outline when attacking. Her outline is yellow, while all prior characters' outlines are blue.
- Ara's design is influenced by Eastern culture and religion. This makes her job names to be written in Chinese on the Korean server.
- All of Ara's job names are direct transcriptions from Chinese to Hangul, which in most cases, due to the religious ties between the two languages, means the Korean name has the exact same meaning as the Chinese name and are pronounced almost the same. In other cases, however, such as Devi, the Korean might not mean anything outright, with the name's origin solely coming from the given Chinese name.
- Ara's base job name; 小侠 (Little Xia), means a person who is young and brave/chivalrous in English.
- Ara and Elesis are the only characters to utilize their pre-renewal portraits as their Epic Quest portraits.
- Ara is depicted as being a bit of an airhead, being very clumsy and often making mistakes while being bad at dancing. Like Aisha, she's also afraid of insects.
- Ara wrote the skill note Shadow Spear Technique and True Moonlight Slash.
- Eun wrote the skill note Enhanced Self-Respect.
- Same with several other characters, Ara shared her canon birthday with her release date in the Korean server.
- The side story My Brother & I 2 looks into Ara's family history.
- Ara is currently the only playable character to be depicted as being explicitly left-handed in combat.
- Her Celestial Fox skill cut-ins will only trigger if the proper cut-in for the current class is equipped. Equipping any other custom cut-in, including the cut-ins of previous classes, will not trigger the Celestial Fox cut-in.
- During the Master Class update, Ara's advancement is aligned with the Master of Earth, Gaia.
- While similarities are not explicit, Gaia too focuses on martial arts combat as well as many of Ara's attacks referring to earth or nature. Additionally, the Story Quest has Gaia going to Ara's homeland in North Fluone.
- Each of their Master Skills are also clearly influenced by Gaia, featuring various trees and referring to him or his element in some way through their skill names and descriptions.
