Character profile

Arzeu is one of the wardens introduced in Pokémon Legends: Arceus, belonging to the Diamond Clan. She watches over the Lady of the Ridge, a noble Lilligant in the Crimson Mirelands. She is a friendly and somewhat excitable warden who likes hairdressing. However, she feels a lot of responsibility as a warden. As a result, she tries to solve problems by herself, leading herself to lie, demonstrated by her not telling Adaman about Lady Lilligant being in a frenzy. In truth of this, she can be seen as being resourceful, trying to make balms on her own in order to calm Lilligant down. Arezu seems to enjoy eating food, having come to Jubilife Village for some of Beni's potato mochi. Additionally, she is featured in TCG card sleeves, pridefully snacking on onigiri.

As a hairstylist, Arezu takes interest in others and her own hair, always thinking of new hair styles. As shown in requests 59 and 75, she takes inspiration from certain Pokémon with hair-like appendages for inspiration. Her dialogue sometimes contains hair puns such as "oh snip" or "cutting edge." Other times, Arezu speaks excitedly, using slang and other forms of shortening or calling the player nicknames.

Arezu values herself and relationships with other people, not wanting to disappoint her clan's leader, Adaman. She gains another friendship with Calaba, who understands her misguided helpfulness and youth, attending to assist the girl when necessary. Arezu can be easily impressed, giving praise to the player's work on quelling Kleavor, Lilligant, and Ursaluna.

None of Arezu's family and relatives are known, but she bears a striking resemblance to Mars of the modern day, implying ancestry. While working in Jubilife Village as a hairdresser, she lives in the Diamond Settlement in the Crimson Mirelands. She takes care of Lady Lilligant at Brava Arena, when she isn't working at Jubilife.

Appearance

 
Arezu bears a resemblance to Mars of the modern day

Arezu is a young red-haired girl. Similarly to Mars, Arezu's red hair has a cowlick on the top of her head. Her hair's bangs round and curl forward, framing her face and covering her ears. Her bangs cover her forehead stopping above her eyebrows, which are the thin and the same color as her hair. Arezu's eyes are round but are half closed, appearing to be sharper, having one thick eyelash that points and turns upwards towards the outer ends. Her concept art described them as being like an inverted triangle. Like her counterpart, her eyes are also bright red, matching her hair and eyebrows.

Like the rest of the Diamond Clan, Arezu's uniform is designed after a certain Pokémon. This uniform is a thick sweatshirt-like top, navy blue in color, taking the color scheme of the Legendary Pokémon that they praise. The top has openings on the side and is laced back together with thick red string that is cross-stitched. The long sleeves which move past her wrists, are topped with a light cyan blue stripe that points towards the hands, resembling clock hands. The hood is the same cyan color, and acts as a shirt collar forming a pointed opening. When worn, the hood gives the illusion of Dialga, being navy blue in color, topped with red eye-like markings. the front of her uniform has the clan's sigil, a 5-pointed pentagon resembling a diamond. Arezu wears a small brown bag that she slings from her shoulder to around the left side of her waist, having a single pocket flap topped with a silver button. The bag's strap is tied together. On her right hand, Arezu owns a bronze cuff with the face of a Hisuian Lilligant on the top, signifying her as the Lady's warden. Arezu wears a pair of leggings, red in color at the top, gradually shifting to a gray color as it moves down her legs. Her stockings are covered by a pair of black shorts. She wears a pair of boots, similar to other clan members, that are black in color with red outlines. The boots have flaps that go down towards her soles that are also red in color.

Pokémon Legends: Arceus

Background and pre-game

Website blurb: "Arezu feels a great deal of responsibility as a warden, and because of this, she tends to try to solve problems all by herself. She is tasked with the care of a certain lady Pokémon."

Prior to the events of the game, Arezu's Noble Pokémon, Lilligant, gets struck with lightning caused the by the space-time rift, causing it to become frenzied. Prior to the player's meet with the character at Jubilife Village, Arezu notices the Ursaluna in the Crimson Mirelands acting strange and assumes him to be frenzied after an interaction with Lilligant. She leaves for Jubilife Village to help solve the issue.

Arezu's Predicament

Arezu is first encountered shortly after the player's quelling of Lord Kleavor in the Obsidian Fieldlands, where she will be enamored by Jubilife Village, meeting with the player at Beni's restaurant for some potato mochi herself. She's impressed with the player's skill of quelling Kleavor's frenzy, and introduces herself as a hairdresser and one of the Diamond Clan's wardens. The player shortly meets up with the warden again with Kamado at the Galaxy Hall, where she claims that Adaman has his hands full and that the special Ursaluna in the Crimson Mirelands has gone in frenzy. Ursaluna's warden, Calaba, who belongs to the Pearl Clan, does not listen to her, so Arezu had to go to the Galaxy Team for help. The player is tasked with the mission to help Ursaluna at the Crimson Mirelands, where they make battle with it and gain his warden's trust, allowing them to ride the Pokémon and return back to Jubilife. After they have obtained the use of Ursaluna, Adaman and Kamado call the player and reveal that Arezu's Noble Pokémon, Lilligant, was now in a frenzy, and that Arezu had concealed this information in the hopes of solving the issue by herself. Ursaluna is able to track down Arezu's scent by the potato mochi she had picked up earlier, helping track down where she could have ran off to.

When the player returns to the Crimson Mirelands for Lilligant, Arezu is found on the ground with a sprained ankle alongside a basket of balms she had prepared for quelling Lilligant. She appears to be frustrated with her luck and herself, admiring the skills Ursaluna had in tracking her down. The player is followed by Adaman and Calaba, who question Arezu's actions. Arezu claims that Lilligant had already been in frenzy and when Ursaluna came to interact with her, he had smelled some of the perfume coming from Lilligant, causing Ursaluna to get aggressive. Arezu went to Jubilife to learn how to craft, but had hurt herself while finding the materials after being told by Professor Laventon about the balms the player had used for Kleavor. Arezu gets scolded by Adaman and Calaba, but also correct her on her wrongs with encouragement. After Calaba treats her wounds, Arezu directs the player and the others to Lilligant's location at Brava Arena, warning about Lilligant's movement and dancing. Following the calming of Lilligant, she happily praises the player for their efforts quelling both Lilligant and Ursaluna, and apologizes to both Lilligant and Calaba once again for her selfish behavior.

At Jubilife Village

After Lilligant's quelling, Arezu meets the player at their quarters in Jubilife Village, where she explains that she is now working as a [[hairdresser at the salon in the village, though she continues her occupation as one of the Diamond Clan's wardens. Calaba takes Arezu's place at Brava Arena any time the player wishes to interact with Lilligant again.

After the player calms Lord Arcanine in the Cobalt Coastlands, Arezu will make a request. In Request 59: "Misdreavus the Hairstyle Muse," she will ask to see a Misdreavus, thinking the Pokémon's look will help with new hair styles. Later, once the player has defeated Lord Electrode in the Coronet Highlands, she will make another request, "Kirlia the Hairstyle Muse," where she asks to see a Kirlia for similar reasons. Completing both requests will inspire her and expand her repertoire of hairstyles and hair colors.

Arezu can have spend time with the player at the Photography studio in Jubilife Village after her role in the story. There, Arezu can have her picture taken with them and her Lilligant. Arzeu has two positions that she will hold at random when beginning a photo.

Daybreak

In Daybreak, Arezu appears once again during Request 96: "Massive Mass Outbreak in the Fieldlands," providing the player with some insight on massive mass outbreaks, and their similarities to Clefairy gatherings. She makes note that another Diamond Clan member had also ran into a massive mass outbreak that contained a mass outbreak of alphas.

The player can challenge Arezu alongside Melli and Adaman through the Path of Tenacity at the training grounds in Jubilife Village after request 106: "Adaman's Hope" is completed.

Pokémon

Like all members of the Diamond Clan, Arezu does not keep her Pokémon in Poké Balls.

Arezu's Pokémon appear to be based on those owned by Mars, who also uses Bronzor, Bronzong, and Purugly. Arezu will be battled subsequently with Melli at the Training Grounds for the Path of Tenacity, giving the allusion of the battles with Mars and Jupiter.

Path of Tenacity

These fights are made available in version 1.1.0 after clearing Request 106: "Adaman's Hope".
