4. Aquata

Aquata

Aquata in The Little Mermaid: Ariel's Beginning.

Aquata is the fourth daughter of King Triton and Queen Athena. She is the most obsessive-compulsive of her sisters; when Arista borrowed her things, including her hairbrush, her "lucky" seashells, her pillow, and her stuffed seahorse, Mr. Fuzzifinkle, she displayed frustration & some hostility, and an impulse to get her things back immediately. She isn't a good dancer, even saying herself that she looks "like a spastic piece of kelp." Her sisters encourage her to dance anyway, and she grows more confident (but not any better at dancing), even starting a conga line at the end of Ariel's Beginning.

  • Her pet peeve is when Arista borrows her stuff.

5. Arista

Arista02

Arista in The Little Mermaid: Ariel's Beginning.

Arista is the fifth daughter of King Triton and Queen Athena. She wears her hair in a pony tail similar to Aquata's although their bangs are different. She tends to take a lot of Aquata's things in Ariel's Beginning. In her television appearances, she tended to be jealous of Ariel's adventurous ways and joined her youngest sister on adventures. Based on the prequel film Ariel's Beginning, she is the most energetic one, though she adopts a more by-the-rules personality, by the time of the TV series, as shown in the episodes, "Against the Tide," and "Beached." Although, in the latter, a small bit of her energetic side surfaces again to help Ariel stop thieves from robbing the Royal Treasury.

  • Arista is 17 years old.
  • Her sisters say she's fun loving.
  • Her hobbies are playing in the band.
  • She doesn't know what a pet peeve is.
  • Her biggest fear is forgetting a rehearsal.
  • Her favorite color is red.
  • Her favorite food is sea sponge swirl (almost like cotton candy).
  • Her favorite genre of music is calypso.
  • Her favorite musical instrument is the horn (although a clarinet is pictured).
    • She plays the sea equivalents to both a saxophone and clarinet in Ariel's Beginning (and both could be called horns).

6. Andrina

AD

Andrina in The Little Mermaid: Ariel's Beginning.

Andrina is the sixth daughter of King Triton and Queen Athena. She appears to be the joker of her sisters, as seen by her many jokes in the prequel film.

Trivia

  • Point of reference, Adella admits in "Ariel's Beginning," to being two years older than Ariel therefore making her the fifth daughter. 
  • Ariel resembles her mother but acts like her father.
  • Arista is shown in the animated series to have Ariel's attitude just like her father.
  • Arista's bangs often change sides between scenes
  • In the prequel film, their eye colors differ.
    • Attina - green; Alana - violet; Adella - teal; Aquata - brown; Arista - ice blue; Andrina - hazel; Ariel - blue;
  • Another feature between them is that Ariel's sisters have different updo hairstyles, while she is the only one with her hair down.
  • Like in the original fairy tale, the princesses are all one year apart.
    • They all turn a year older between the prequel movie and the original.
  • Although Ariel's Beginning lists their birth order as Attina, Alana, Adella, Aquata, Arista, Andrina, and Ariel, the original film's song, "Daughters of Triton", strongly implies that their birth order was Aquata, Andrina, Arista, Attina, Adella, Alana, and Ariel.
