– Bozé

Bozé Lowes (Japanese: ボゼ・ロウズ, Boze Rōzu; English dub: /ˈboʊˈzeɪ ˈloʊz/) is a recruitable character in Xenoblade Chronicles X. He is a Harrier instructor of the private military organization BLADE.


Bozé is a human who is bald, and has black eyes. He has a strange marking on his forehead, possibly a tattoo, and multiple scars. Four or five of these scars are on the left side of his face, near his eye, while there are two more on the right side of his chin, and one on the upper right side of his head.


Bozé is deeply interested in certain facets of eastern Earth culture, and bases his actions on their teachings. He will often give others his wisdom as he considers himself to be a "sensei." Sometimes he is given more wisdom by Cross. Due to the Ganglion killing many of his students, he has a great distrust of alien races.



Bozé can be found near West Melville Street in the Commercial District, where he can be recruited.


Bozé can be recruited after the completion of The Mad Monk.
