She is first met during the mission Manhunt. After the party completes New in New LA, Celica becomes a member of the Prospectors Division within the private military organization BLADE, as well as a recruitable character.
A kindhearted Qlurian who drifted to Mira along with Rock. Celica's gentle demeanor and strong sense of responsibility enable her to aid those in need, and she strives endlessly to protect her counterpart Rock from engaging in any kind of conflict.
Celica is a Qlurian with blue eyes and short blonde hair, which conceals most of her right eye. She has long, pointy, animal-like ears, which appear to be furry. The left side of her face bears a strange marking, the origins of which are unknown.

Celica does not play a role in the main story, however she is briefly seen waving during the ending credits cutscene.
- Celica has an unused victory line intended for when she and Lao are in the same party, and Lao has a corresponding response which also goes unused. However, Celica cannot be recruited until after Chapter 9 is completed, at which point Lao becomes permanently unavailable to the player.

|Chapter 10||"I have heard that humanity cannot survive without this Lifehold Core that you seek. I do not know if I would be of any help to you in finding it, but I am completely at your disposal. Humanity has provided Rock and I with a place to belong. Please give me a chance to repay that debt. Let me come with you."||"Thank you, Cross. I am yours to command."||"I assure you that I can fight when necessary. Should you ever find yourself shorthanded, please allow me to assist you."|
|Chapter 11||"I expect that an attack on the Ganglion's central command will put us face-to-face with enemies far stronger than any we have yet encountered. I have trepidations about that, as I am certain do you. But if you wish to take me along, know that I will do prepare myself to the utmost."||"I would like to say that I am trembling with excitement, but I must admit it is fear. Nevertheless, I have the utmost confidence in our success with you in command."||"I have the utmost confidence in your success. But please do be careful."|
|Chapter 12||"Humanity has bestowed two precious treasures upon Rock and I: friends and a place to belong. And the two of us are agreed that we have a duty to help protect humanity's most priceless treasure in return. Please allow me to assist you in your mission to secure the Lifehold Core."||"As a friend and fellow BLADE operative, I will serve you loyally."||"Then Rock and I shall remain here and await news of your successful return."|
|After Chapter 12||"Recently, I purchased Rock a large hammock from L. But this morning, while still groggy from the night's rest, he tumbled out of it. It was quite amusing! Ah, but listen to me prattle on. If there is anything that I can do to assist you, you need but to ask."||"And what mission awaits us this fine day? Whatever the task, I will not let you down."||"Then I shall spend another leisurely day with Rock."|
