Ariss was notorious for his gambling habits, which often got him into financial as well as political trouble. He was considered a friend of Grand Moff Tarkin, and his friend's influence kept him in a favorable position within the Empire as well as allowing him access to the exclusive Sabre Club, a VIP club of the Ace of Sabres casino that he frequented.

As a Moff Ariss had the power and influence of an entire sector behind him. He was an above average leader skilled in both command and government bureaucracy. Whether because of his personal wealth or because of his political influence he had a 25,000 credit line open when he was at the casino.
