This question came up again over at Cardgamedb and I went ahead and asked FFG about it.   Here was the response from Damon.  


"The Northern Courser changes the claim of the challenge Arya is in. The claim replacement is incompatible with the opposing player satisfying the altered claim so the "if able" clause prevents Arya's ability from triggering." - Damon Stone




Side note - Is there anyway to get that "FFG Rulings/Answer" thread as a sticky so it can be easily found?

I like the ruling, but have a hard time explaining its general applicability.


I guess because "choose and kill 1 character controlled by the losing opponent." specifically refers to the losing opponent and because the opposing title owners are not the losing opponent that they can not satisfy the effect. As they can not satisfy it, the "if able" condition is not met and the effect goes unresolved.


I wish they'd addressed the "the guy I attacked also has an opposing title" issue, but one thing at a time.
