Ria is a former Phoenixean royalty and the current leader of the space fleet known as the Federation, and also the main antagonist of Vertigo. Ria is a hot-headed, manipulative leader and built her way to the top, only to change the Federation's ideals entirely after they had gathered control of the galaxy of Deno. Her plan is to gather more and more power in her current galaxy, and branch out to other galaxies, challenging other space influences like the Doomuli. She is one of the only known surviving Phoenixean in the universe, and is probably the most powerful, displaying powers far more advanced than other Phoenixeans like Jared Orlevo.
According to herself, she has been to dimensions other than her current one.
To most people, Ria seems like a calm, smart leader who makes good choices to guarantee that the Federation thrives. Her ideals show that this is wrong.
Ria is hot-headed, and while she doesn't usually show it, she reacts impulsively which can lead to many problems within the Federation. She is a snarky, manipulative person who knows how to get into people's heads and can do it easily. She herself doesn't feel like she's doing something wrong, but she is deadset on Purity throughout the galaxy, although she believes that you have to make some sacrifices to make it that way.
