Ariel Landry (born 1982) is a minor character in The IT Files. A part of the International Temporal Enforcement Agency, Ariel is a sociology and culture expert working with the Espionage Wing. Before joining the ITEA Ariel was poised to become an internationally-famous glamor model.
Ariel was born in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. As a child Ariel's parents, a real estate agent and a lawyer, had little time for her thus she was watched by her aunt and uncle's nanny along with her cousin Colette Landry. Ariel became a sort of older sister of Colette, helping her with social issues as the pair grew up, Colette being the quiet genius while Ariel was the charismatic beauty. The relation even remained strong when Colette advanced quickly, skipping several grades in school.
After high school Ariel's uncle helped her become a local model, posing for several tourism ads and even working in a Canadian campaign for Zoe Hollander. Ariel's success later led her to New York where she worked alongside the likes of Kitty Drake, Michelle Foster and Eva Hallowell. Paradise Foundation databanks also suggested if they'd had more time they may have kidnapped Ariel when they were using Sierra Escorts to sell models to rich clients while they were equipped with Type-7 Chips. As the years went by Ariel became less interested in the fashion world and more in what Colette was doing. When Colette joined the International Temporal Enforcement Agency Ariel decided she wanted to help her in some way and, after some work, she was finally hired as a sociologist for the Espionage wing.
Within the ITEA Ariel's main skill is creating strong backgrounds for undercover operations in high society, knowing what makes a person passable and what doesn't. Ariel's work has also helped agents who pose as fashion models, specifically Marika Bran and Nessa Kelly, know how to act. While investigating Zoe Hollander Colette and Team Gamma recruited Ariel to help, sending her into the field for the first time. Ariel was also targeted by Ouroboros along with Jelena and her cousin but was not taken. the incident however inspired Ariel to better train for possible future field work, taking up getting better with the Beretta PX4 Storm her parents had given her when she'd joined the agency.
When Sandy Vanholt used the Durga Hourglass and the Stillsville Camera to freeze time on a global scale Ariel was trapped in ITEA HQ with her cousin. Bored more than anything, Ariel made a bet with Colette that she could seduce whoever came by the latter's office. Perry Pike was the first to show up so Ariel proceeded to seduce him successfully. During the wedding of William Volt and Suzanna Ortiz-Volt Lucienne Christophe secretly froze her with Type-7 to keep her in a collection of her co-workers. Ariel was unfrozen when time was as well, at which point she learned Colette had been taken into custody for keeping her relationship with Scott Dawson a secret. Depressed, Ariel stopped speaking to Perry and instead turned to drinking. Isabella Winthrop met Ariel at The Lion Head Pub and took her home, at which point Ariel kissed her and decided to take her as a lover. While preferring men, Ariel felt that entering a sexual relationship with a woman was appropriately self-punishing, hating that she couldn't help Colette and hadn't known her secret.
