For the jewel, see Agate (key item).

Agate (Japanese: メノウ, Menō) is a Rare Blade in Xenoblade Chronicles 2. She can grant tremendous power to her Drivers, Rex, Nia, Zeke or Mòrag, and their allies. Agate uses the earth element, wields a Greataxe, and acts as an Attacker in battle. Agate wields a beautiful yet powerful greataxe made of ore.

Agate was designed by Yūsuke Kozaki, who is best known as the character designer for Fire Emblem Awakening and Fire Emblem Fates.

Personality

Agate is a very helpful and protective Blade, willing to do whatever it takes to help the party. She is an avid geologist, with the grand aim of discovering a new mineral. However, she has a crippling fear of insects to the point where she will faint if one approaches her.

Appearance

Agate is a young, pale woman with blue eyes and dirty blonde hair. She wears full pearl white and gold plate armor with a metal skirt and heels made of crystal, which also forms her pauldrons, skirt edging and ax blade. She wears a pointed wide-brimmed hat in similar style with crystal spikes. White armored gloves cover her arms, and blue energy circles appear across her armor. Her core crystal is shaped like a rounded diamond.

Heart-to-heart and Blade Quest

Agate during her Blade Quest

Agate's Heart-to-heart, "Impassioned Thoughts", takes place near Mizar, Elevator #8 between Agate, her Driver, Poppi α and Tora. In it she marvels at the strength and unnatural durability of their surroundings and her excitement at coming across new materials, alongside her enjoyment of the location given its lack of bug life. Poppi ruins this by approaching with handfuls of Jabara Bugs which she has collected to make food with.

Agate's Blade Quest, Precious Yearnings, can be triggered by staying at the inn in Fonsa Myma during or after Chapter 5, where Agate explains her life goal: to discover a brand new mineral somewhere on Alrest. The party agree that this is a good aim and accompany her to the Old Quarry in Uraya, where they find a potential rock. Upon taking it to Misimisi to be appraised they are disappointed to find it is rare but known, and Agate is further encouraged to go and prospect further. After searching all over and finding several known but rare mineral samples, Agate finally makes a discovery of a large, banded red rock in the Land of Morytha; this does turn out to be novel, and the party encourage Agate to name the rock Agate, given that she discovered it.
