Final Fantasy III Character
Aria Benett, also known as Elia, is an non-playable character from Final Fantasy III. She temporarily joins the party in order to restore the Water Crystal.



Spoiler warning: Plot and/or ending details follow. (Skip section)

Aria is met by the party shortly after they leave the Floating Continent for the Surface World. She can be found on the wrecked ship island in the northern part of the World Map lying in bed with an old man beside her. Aria accompanies the party to the Temple of Water to retrieve the shard of the Crystal of Water. Using this, she can open the door within the Cave of Tides, where the Water Crystal is kept.

If the player speaks with Aria while she follows the party, she describes the light which she senses from the Light Warriors as strong, yet gentle.

When the party reaches the Water Crystal at the end of the dungeon, the group is attacked by Kraken. Aria pushes Luneth out of the way, and she takes the blast as a result. Aria dies from the injuries soon after in Luneth's arms.


Aria functions as a White Mage and occasionally casts Protect and Cura during battles.

Trouble with the audio sample?

Aria's theme is "Aria, Maiden of the Water", which is also sampled in the opening theme from Final Fantasy III. "Once You Meet Her" is a vocal arrangement of her theme featured in the album Final Fantasy: Pray.

  • In the Dawn of Souls and 20th Anniversary remakes of the original Final Fantasy, Elia is one of the automatic names the player can choose for the White Mage Job.
  • Aria is the only one of the temporary party characters to appear in the FMV opening.
