Arami was unwittingly smuggled onto the Dredgion by Vonak for a client who has since disappeared. While she appears to be a human child, it is unknown whether or not she is technically human. DNA tests show odd abnormalities in her cells, but no direct matches can be found to any known species. Despite multiple attempts to remove her from the Dredgion and place her into the care of a family, she refused to leave. She exhibited immeasurable power and stubborness when anyone tried to make her do anything she didn't want to do.
Eventually, seeing that they were at an impass, Imadath told her that she could stay so long as she didn't use her power on the Dredgion, as her inexperience caused her to be a liability to the crew's safety. Arami agreed, and instead stowed away with Masters when they went out on missions to explore her powers. While she was reprimanded many times, it became clear that no one could keep her from sneaking onto away missions, and the Masters began to welcome her presense on their missions like a good luck charm. Arami seems to see this entire war as a game, completely unaware of any risk or danger as she gleefully charges into combat.
