Arabella "Lia" Ardelia is the main female protagonist of The Invisible Ring. Alongside Jared she leads a group of slaves out of imprisonment in the slave markets in Raej. She wears Birthright Green, and eventually descends to Gray. She is a Queen and it is insinuated that she will rule Dena Nehele after her grandmother Grizelle steps down. Her mother is a fully trained Black Widow and her father serves in her grandmother's Court.

Before the BookEdit
Before the book begins, Lia is a young Queen living in Dena Nehele. She is serving in the First Circle of her grandmother's Court, and it is suggested that she is the candidate most likely to take over after The Gray Lady steps down. A problem arises, though, one that eventually requires Lia to pretend to be The Gray Lady. The basic issue is this: the Court would not risk Grizelle's life yet again, but they could also not appear weakened before their great enemy of Hayll. So another witch was chosen to go in her place: Lia. Lia was chosen because she was a Queen who greatly resembled Grizelle, and could therefore more easily keep the facade up and running.
