Arianne Martell is a member of House Martell and is the eldest daughter of the ruling Prince of Dorne, Doran of House Martell, and his consort, Mellario of Norvos. According to Dornish customs, she is the heiress of Sunspear, and the future ruling Princess of Dorne.
Arianne grew up at the Water Gardens, the preferred place of residence of her father. With her brother Quentyn sent away as squire at an early age and her brother Trystane ten years younger than herself, her best companions during childhood were Drey, Garin and Spotted Sylva. However, she was closest to her cousin Tyene Sand, with whom she shared everything. She was also close to some of the other Sand Snakes, including Nymeria and Sarella.
Arianne is beautiful, with olive skin, large dark eyes and long, thick black hair that falls in ringlets to the middle of her back.
Calculating, adventurous and fierce-tempered, when she sees something she desires, she strives to obtain it at all cost. Arianne does not shy away from using her looks to get what she wants and quite often tries to seduce men to do her bidding, on the other hand, she seems to be pious and is praying to the Seven.
Ser Arys Oakheart thinks that Arianne’s nature compares more to her uncle Oberyn’s than to her father’s.
