Look at this stuff
Isn't it neat?
Wouldn't you think my collection's complete?
Wouldn't you think I'm the girl
The girl who has everything?
Look at this trove
How many wonders can one cavern hold?
Looking around here you think
Sure, she's got everything
I've got gadgets and gizmos a-plenty
I've got whozits and whatzits galore
You want thingamabobs?
I've got twenty!
But who cares?
No big deal
I want more
I wanna be where the people are
I wanna see, wanna see them dancin'
Walking around on those - what do you call 'em?
Oh - feet!
Flippin' your fins, you don't get too far
Legs are required for jumping, dancing
Strolling along down a - what's that word again?
Up where they walk, up where they run
Up where they stay all day in the sun
Wanderin' free - wish I could be
Part of that world
What would I give if I could live out of these waters?
What would I pay to spend a day warm on the sand?
Bet'cha on land they understand
Bet they don't reprimand their daughters
Bright young women sick of swimmin'
Ready to stand
And ready to know what the people know
Ask 'em my questions and get some answers
What's a fire and why does it - what's the word?
When's it my turn?
Wouldn't I love, love to explore that shore up above?
Out of the sea
Wish I could be
Part of that world
Born to Athena and Triton, Ariel is the youngest princess among her six other sisters. Their whole family has always shared a mutual understanding for their love of music, composing and singing. Unfortunately, they had had to live in silence after an incident, in which their mother died during one of their many visits to the surface. Triton could not get over his sorrow of his dead wife and banned everything from the kingdom, which would remind him of Athena. Although he was able to recover from his unhappiness with the help of his daughters, he is still hostile towards humans and everything, which is made by them. This belief is burned deep into his memory and he demands his daughters to keep away from them at all costs. In fear of losing them the same way, as he lost his wife.
As the youngest, Ariel naturally wishes to stand out among her other sisters. She is rebellious and sees every rule her father comes up with as a challenge to break it for her own enjoyment. Since she is the last in the devolution of the crown, she sees little reason in holding on tight to traditions, which get into her way. She loves exploring, collecting items she finds on the surface or sunk ship wrecks, as well as watching humans dance and celebrate like only they can.
Ariel is stubborn, reckless, naive, rebellious, adventurous, curious, honest and gullible. Despite the evidence brought up by her father against the good nature of humans she faithfully believes in, she is unwilling to believe that they are even half as bad, as he says. Her curiousity for everything coming from the world of humans has subsisted since her early teens. The actual wish to become human herself has first manifested upon seeing prince Eric celebrate his birthday and declare his independence to his very understanding servant. Unfortunately, she trusts Ursula with her request, as she readily offers to help her for a price. The show down of it all has brought Ariel and her father closer together and strengthened Triton's trust in not only his daughter, but also into the good nature of mankind. In the end her unconventional ways get her to finally be with despite their different races and nature.
