|Full Name||Aruna Malia|
|Date of Birth||TBA.|
|Location||Isola, Ziama Prime|
|Ability/ies||Deity of Sociability|
Aruna, the Deity of Communication, is one of the fourteen main playable characters in the fighting game, Hypnotize. She was revealed on May 19, 2016, and was the first character revealed for the game overall.
Aruna was born into a normal life with a nuclear family, both of her parents loved her but also admired the way she lived her life. In her close-knit town, she would often help out the locals with their daily tasks, as it gave her happiness and contentment with herself. She would often do these good deeds as well as other things such as getting water and other materials for her parents when needed, which ultimately gave her the title of Deity of Communication, for her advanced and special social skills with others.
She was selected to play in the Hypnotize Extraordinaire tournament because of her advanced skills in the social aspect of life, and it was believed that she would make the game very interesting with her social talents.
Aruna has a very varied play style, which focuses on her social abilities in the real world as she is the Deity of Communication. A lot of her attacks focus on punches and attacks related to her hands rather than kicks, and she often has a blue butterfly present whenever she is on the stage. She is one of the less threatening players to look at, but this is often a misconception considering her moves can be very gruesome and horrific.
She also has a lot of traits that a normal human being would have, for example, her clumsiness and her ability to play the harp. She also makes friends easily with animals as well as humans, which is shown through the presence of the butterfly throughout her time on the stage and it's relevance in her attacks.

Aruna creates a whirlwind with her butterfly, which tangles up any enemy who is in the attacking radius. It also pushes back opponents briefly if they are in a wider radius.

Aruna starts a conversation with the enemy character, before punching them and kicking them repeatedly all over their body before dealing one powerful punch at the end.
