Gorg (Japanese: ユウオウ, Yuuou) is a Rare Blade in Xenoblade Chronicles 2. He can grant tremendous power to his Drivers, Rex, Nia, Zeke or Mòrag, and their allies. Gorg uses the water element, wields a Greataxe, and acts as an Attacker in battle. He has a graceful appearance with thin blue fins attached to his limbs and his back, but also has mechanized hands.
As a Blade, Gorg seeks to refine his skills. He possesses a strong work ethic and works to be a reliable Blade for his Driver. He does possess a weakness for sweets, having a great desire to own a Patisserie if he were ever given leave from his regular duties as a Blade, and can even become distracted in conversation if a nearby dessert catches his eye.
Gorg is a statuesque man tan skin and long red hair tied in plaits. He has bright blue eyes and glowing blue ether lines across his skin. He wears a dancer's top that shows most of his torso, white and grey trousers, white, black and blue boots and two pairs of goggles with electric blue lenses under a pink hat. Bright blue fins emerge from his shoulders, waist and heels, and he has a glowing blue spine ridge of the same material. Gorg's arms are mechanical and oversized, and his core crystal is circular.
Heart-to-heart and Blade Quest
Gorg's Heart-to-heart, "Sweet Strategy", takes place at the cafe in Theosoir between Gorg, his Driver, and Tora (XC2). Gorg calls a group meeting in order to discuss Driver strategy during battle, but repeatedly gets distracted by a dessert at the next table.
Gorg's Blade Quest, Follow Your Passion, is activated after his heart-to-heart upon visiting Fonsa Myma Port, where a group of Urayans request help regaining some cargo - paintings - lost in a shipwreck. Upon following their directions the party finds the wreckage surrounded by Aligo, which Gorg decides to distract with a delicious smelling concoction. The party retrieve the paintings and return them to their owner, and Gorg confesses that he wants to run a patisserie alongside his usual Blade duties. The party encourage this and bring him ingredients to make desserts with, and when he proves himself a successful patissier the artist whose paintings were returned bequeaths his shop to Gorg as a full-time business venture.
