Aroree was one of the Chosen Eight. When she met Skywise, he opened her eyes to a wider world. Aroree saw in Skywise a spark - one that was missing from her life. She desperately wanted to flee Blue Mountain and lead a life far from it's shadow. When Aroree saw young Windkin, she recognized her escape route: she kidnapped him, taking him to Blue Mountain, where she presented him to Winnowill. Aroree begged Winnowill to release her in exchange for Windkin: "Something is ... wrong with me! I - I cannot live here in Blue Mountain any longer!"
After Blue Mountain collapsed, Aroree lost her whole way of life. Called 'Sad Eyes', she eventually joined the others in Thorny Mountain Holt as they awaited the return of the Palace from its ten thousand year journey into the future. She sought the solace from the only one she believed left to her - Skywise. It is unclear what became of Aroree after the Palace was reassembled and the elfin tribes reunited. She volunteered to accompny Venka and Two-Edge on a search to find Kahvi, so that she might learn the fate of Tyldak - perhaps the last of her kindred from Blue Mountain.
