For those who have not completed games in the Xenoblade Chronicles series, this page contains spoilers regarding the plot. Discretion is advised.

Fan la Norne (Japanese: ファン・レ・ノルン, Fan re Norun), originally known as Haze (Japanese: カスミ, Kasumi), is a Blade in Xenoblade Chronicles 2. Praetor Amalthus is her Driver. She is known as the "Goddess of Indol" and is the envoy for the Indoline Praetorium. She has the ability to limit the power of not only other Blades, but of Titans as well.

In Torna ~ The Golden Country, Haze is a Special Legendary Blade. She can grant tremendous power to her Driver Lora and her allies. Haze uses the wind element, wields a Crosier, and acts as a Healer in battle.


Aegis War

Haze and Lora look very alike

Haze was one of Lora's two Blades during the Aegis War, with whom she shared a resonance with so strongly that the two bore notable resemblance to one another. She is first met in Torna ~ The Golden Country after travelling to Gormott alone to uncover the location of Lora's mother, who she learns is in Torigoth. Upon returning to Lora and Jin, Haze accompanies the group who have met Addam and Mythra to Torigoth, only to find that the village has been pillaged and burned down. They travel further and find the Torigoth Cemetery, in which one grave is decorated with a charm Lora made for her mother as a child.

Lora driving Haze

The group are attacked by Ardainian troops including Brighid, who Haze uses her Blade ability to control others to subdue. Upon Hugo's intervention. the group travel to the Ardainian flagship while Lora and Haze stay behind to decorate the graves. Gort, a past antagonist of Lora's, ambushes the duo attempting to kill Lora and reclaim Jin's Core Crystal. Knowing Haze's power, Gort brings no Blades with him. They combat his group of mercenaries until Jin rushes to their aid, driving Gort off. Haze remains with the group as they travel to Auresco to stop Malos; she uses her power while Lora spars with Addam and Mythra to stop Mythra's Foresight, and she attempts to inhibit Malos while battling him in Sachsum Gardens although, as the Aegis, he is able to break free.

Haze, Lora, Jin, and Mikhail eventually part ways with Addam and Pyra after the destruction of the Kingdom of Torna. Upon Addam's request, Lora and the others travel to Spessia to notify Addam's militia to relocate to Leftheria. She assists Lora in fighting off Gort when he attacks them again. The group arrives at the militia's camp moments before Amalthus' attack on the region - Lora is killed in the battle, and Jin eats her heart to continue living as a Flesh Eater. Haze, separated from Lora in the chaos, returns to her Core Crystal. Her Core is eventually found by Amalthus, who reawakens her and gives her the new identity of Fan la Norne, Goddess of the Praetorium. He takes half of Haze's Core Crystal and becomes a Blade Eater, although Haze has no knowledge of this.

Mor Ardain and Temperantia

Haze using her power

Five hundred years later, Fan meets Rex in the Abandoned Factory of the Empire of Mor Ardain after his party fights Patroka and Mikhail. She is able to stop Patroka from attacking them with her full power, and the two members of Torna escape on the Monoceros. Fan asks Rex to come and speak with Amalthus, and travels with the party to Indol.

Talking to Rex and Nia near the mural in the Sanctum, she mentions that the memories of her past life are missing. She later accompanies the party to Temperantia, where she uses her powers to weaken the Judicium Titan, allowing the party to board and fight Aeshma's Core in order to stop Jin. Fan attempts to slow Jin, as he is a Blade, but his status as a Flesh Eater allow him to overcome her power and he kills Fan by stabbing her through her Core Crystal, believing that this will free her from Amalthus.

Fan is given a state funeral after the Ruler's Congress in Indol - unheard of for a Blade, as upon death a Blade's body should return to ether rather than leaving a corpse. Mythra notes that Fan's Core Crystal was originally diamond shaped and that half of it appears to be missing, suggesting that someone may have stolen it. Much later Amalthus reveals that he took half of Fan's Core Crystal to add to his powers as a Driver of an Aegis; he uses her powers to control Mythra, and by extension Siren, and eventually to control the nation Titans to prevent the party and Torna from climbing the World Tree.
