History: Ariel is seventh princess in line for the throne of Atlantica and she is the most headstrong out of her sisters. While being forbidden to have anything to do with the human world Ariel goes in search of human things on a ship wreck with her best friend Flounder. During their adventure, they are attacked by a shark, but Ariel manages to outwit him. After escaping him, Ariel and Flounder swim up to the surface, where they speak to Scuttle to identify human objects. He misidentifies a fork as a "dinglehopper" used to straighten their hair and a pipe as a "snarfblatt" used to make music. The identification of the latter reminds her about the concert she was initially supposed to a part of. After she is watched by two eels, Flotsam and Jetsam, Ursula watches from her crystal ball bubble and wants them to keep an extra close watch on her. Ursula watches her because she hates that King Triton is the ruler of the sea. She believes that it is her right to be queen because she is Triton's sister. (This is only explained in the musical version.) He banished her for using dark magic. She thinks that the best way to get back at King Triton is through his youngest daughter, Ariel.
Ariel hurries home to Triton and Sebastian, who both rebuke her for missing the concert. Hearing from Flounder about her encounter with a seagull, Triton reprimands her for swimming up to the surface, telling her how she could have been spotted by what he calls "barbarians" who could have snared her with a fishhook. After being demanded by him to obey his every rule and not do that again, she tearfully swims off to her secret grotto, where her collection of human objects, from books to other regular objects such as globes, mugs, and chests of jewels, is kept. She feels that collecting them isn't enough and gets more curious about the human world. She wants to live in it and know what the humans know.
Later, Ariel spots a ship passing above. She quickly swims up to the surface and toward it, where she watches the party on board. She then spots a human named Eric, and remarks to Scuttle how she has never seen a human this close before. Just then, a storm moves in and destroys the ship. She looks around for Eric, and finds him floating unconscious in the sea. She carries him to the shore, where she sings to him about how she longs to be with him in his world, but is forced to leave when others approach. She falls in love with him, and becomes even more determined to accomplish her dreams of living alongside humanity.
Flounder takes Ariel to her grotto, where he surprises her with a statue of Eric that he has somehow salvaged from the destroyed ship and added into her collection. She thanks him, but then her father is very upset to learn from Sebastian that she has rescued a human being from drowning. Shocked and enraged that she is in love with that human, he loses all his temper and destroys all the human objects in her grotto with his trident, including the statue of Eric. She tries to get him to stop, but he doesn't. Devastated, she breaks down in tears, and Triton leaves. Sebastian, who has accompanied him, tries to console her, only for her to tell him to leave. After he and Flounder exit, Flotsam and Jetsam, appear to convince her to see their mistress, Ursula, who may have the power to make her dream come true. She, after initially attempting to refuse, reluctantly follows them to Ursula's fortress.
Ariel nervously and fearfully enters the fortress, and Ursula calls for her. Ursula, tells her that she must become a human herself to be with Eric. Ursula explains the deal to her: she will become a human for three days, during which she must get a kiss of true love from him before the sun sets on the third day in order to stay human; otherwise, she will turn back into a mermaid and will belong to Ursula forever. Ursula tells Ariel that part of the deal is that she must give up her voice. She accepts the deal as she signs a contract conjured by Ursula, then orders Ariel to sing for her and summons magical hands to rip out her voice, which is then sealed into a seashell on Ursula's necklace. Ariel is then turned into a human, and is helped to the surface by Flounder and Sebastian due to her inability to swim and breathe.
At the shore, Scuttle arrives and witnesses Ariel's new legs for the first time. However, Sebastian is beyond furious, going into a nervous panic at what would happen if she failed to kiss Eric, as well as if King Triton were to find out about the entire event. Frustrated, he begins trotting home, only to have her convince him to stay and help. Now that the mission is set in motion, Scuttle provides some "clothing" for her, just as they are found by Eric's dog. When he sees her he thinks he knows her, but when he sees that she is unable to talk, he gets the feeling that she can't be the girl he is looking for. He takes her to his castle, where she takes a bath and gets dressed for dinner.
The next day Eric shows Ariel around the kingdom and then become closer. They almost kiss, but Flotsam and Jetsam cause an accident in a boat and they fall in the water instead. The day after that Scuttle wakes up Ariel and delivers the news that Eric is getting hitched. She excitedly runs downstairs, only to see him with a dark-haired girl named Vanessa, whom he intends to marry. She breaks down in tears and runs off, devastated that he is not marrying her. Later that afternoon, the wedding ship departs with him, Vanessa, and the wedding guests on board, leaving a heartbroken Ariel to mourn the loss of him. Just then, Scuttle comes over to tell her shocking news: Vanessa is Ursula in disguise. Ariel jumps into the sea, but has to grab onto one of the barrels released by Sebastian to stay afloat, and Flounder helps her to the wedding ship by pulling it. Just she reaches the ship and climbs aboard, the seashell on Ursula's necklace that Vanessa has been wearing shatters in front of her, freeing her voice, which is then restored to her. Eric, who has come out of a spell placed on him by Vanessa, realizes that she is the girl he is looking for. He dumps Vanessa and runs over to her. But just as they are about to kiss, the sun sets and Ariel turns back into a mermaid and collapses.
Vanessa transforms back into Ursula, takes Ariel as her prisoner, and dives back into the sea with her. As she thinks of what she should do to her next, Triton appears to confront her and orders her to release Ariel to which she refuses. Ariel apologizes to him as he attempts to destroy the contract, but can't. Ursula proceeds to wither her, but offers someone even better to take her place. Triton accepts by blasting his signature on the contract with his trident. Ariel is released, but is forced to watch as Triton is withered and transformed into a polyp. Ursula then takes his crown and trident. Shocked and enraged, Ariel confronts her and tries to fight her off. Eric arrives to help her. Eventually Ursula is killed after she becomes a giant. Eric takes a wrecked ship and hits her in the abdomen with it.
With Ursula defeated, her spells upon unfortunate Merpeople are broken, including the spell cast upon Triton, who transforms back into a merman. At the surface, Eric manages to swim to shore, breaking down out of exhaustion as a saddened Ariel watches on from a nearby rock. Triton and Sebastian look on from a distance; the former finally softening up toward humans upon realizing Eric risked his own life to save Ariel. Knowing the love between them is pure and true, despite their differences as species, Triton uses the power of the trident to permanently transform Ariel into a human, allowing her to be with the one she loves, at long last. After the transformation, she walks up to the shore, where she is happily reunited with Eric as he embraces her, and they share their first kiss. Soon, they have their wedding on the wedding ship attended by hiss loyal subjects onboard and her family and friends in the sea around the ship. She silently bids farewell to Scuttle and Flounder and gives Triton a heartwarming hug before happily sailing away with Eric. Thanks to her, Triton accepts Eric, her new husband, as his new son-in-law.
Soon Ariel and Eric have a daughter named Melody. She struggles with her life of being a human because she is strange, or at least other people think she is. She can talk to fish and she doesn't understand why. Her mermaid heritage has been hidden from her because of a new threat, Ursula's sister, Morgana. She threatened the safety of Ariel's daughter when she had just been born and Ariel, Prince Eric, and King Triton decided it would be for the best to create a wall between the earth and sea so no harm could come to Melody. From then on Melody was not allowed to go into the sea, it was forbidden. Of course, just like her mother, she found ways to break the rules and go where she felt she belonged.
Melody is tricked, much like how Ursula tricked Ariel, into getting fins so that she could see what her life could be like. She is tricked into stealing King Triton's trident and gets into a lot of trouble. In the end the day is saved and Melody, Ariel and Eric are reunited and the wall that had been up between the ocean and land was taken down.
Years have passed since Melody's trip to the sea and everything had been peaceful. Suddenly Ariel's father and sisters have gone missing. Things have started to happen to the sea and it's creatures. There was something wrong with the balance of earth and sea, since King Triton's disappearance. The water was destroying land and houses and no one knew how to fix it, only King Triton and her eldest sisters knew that secret. Ariel is desperately looking for a way to save both of her families when a Fairy Godmother comes to her. She tells Ariel that she will be given the power to restore balance and save her family if she becomes a senshi.

"It's raining outside..."
Ariel looked out the window to see that it was raining outside again. It felt like hurricane season was never going to end since her father disappeared. She watched as things were flying passed her with the strong winds of the hurricane. The people of her kingdom had been told to stay inside so that they would be safe. She hoped they'd heed her warnings. It wasn't safe outside for anything, let alone humans or animals. The seas weren't even safe for their inhabitants. She'd heard of destruction on the sea floor as well from her merfriends. This was only going to continue to get worse, unless they could find a way to stop this weather.
