Arika (Shivani Ghai)
In apocalyptic supernatural series Dominion, Arika was first introduced as a visiting diplomat from the matriarchy Helena (a fortified human settlement build on the ruins of Salt Lake City) and wife of Helena’s queen Evelyn. She arrived in Vega, a human settlement the show centered on, as part of a negotiating party.
In the pilot she got close and had sex with David Wheele, one of the leading members of Vega, and they shared a cordial but rocky diplomatic relationship. She later told one her handmaidens it was just business.
In the season 1 finale, Arika was revealed to be Evelyn and in a relationship with archangel Uriel, although when season 2 premiered, the show introduced a new lover, Daria, a human doctor from Helena. Arika told Daria she only used Uriel to get what she desired: rule Vega. Together with the queen of Vega, Arika organized a bombardment against Uriel’s brother’s fortress. Uriel was there during the bombardment and couldn’t be found – and in season 2 other characters mentioned she had died in the air strike.
Daria appeared by Arika’s side for three episodes and Arika seemed to truly care for her. In Season 2, episode 12, Arika came to free Daria and her bodyguard from a prison cell and the bodyguard told her that Daria ran from her cell screaming, presumably under the influence of hallucinogenics. Daria was not seen or mentioned in the series after that and most of the humans in Vega died during the attack, so she was presumed dead.
In the series finale, as an army was invading Vega, Arika and David had a tender moment together and kissed, after David decided to stay and not flee with Arika. Moments after, David was overrun and either killed or taken prisoner.
The series ended on a cliffhanger in season 2, and was cancelled afterwards.
