- "There's a difference between having mercy and torturing your enemies, dear maester."
- — Arlene to Maester Terra
Arlene is a quiet and reserved 15 year old, she rarely ever speaks unless she has something to say. She is calm and levelheaded, never snapping under pressure, making her a quick thinker and a great leader. She, however, is not without her own flaws. She never speaks even when she knows something, out of fear everyone will criticize her, such as the time she knew Maester Terra was planning the mass suicide since everyone in the group still believe him to be a good person, while she had past experiences with him and knew he was always tainted with evil.
