"Not at all. I miss Earth as much as you do. I think everyone here does. There's no reason to feel shame or guilt about it. This is a trauma we all share."
– Hope

Hope Alanzi (Japanese: ヒメリ・アランジ, Himeri Aranji; English dub: /ˈhoʊp əˈlɑːn.zi/) is a recruitable playable character in Xenoblade Chronicles X. She is a Mediator and a member of the private military organization BLADE.


Hope is a human with long black hair that is parted down the middle, with long bangs that fall to her chin on either side of her face. Her right eye is brown, while her left eye is purple.


Hope is a very selfless and generous individual who will help anyone who asks for her help, even when she believes that she is out of her depth. She never expects, or asks for, a reward for completing the missions she is tasked with. Despite her good nature, she suffers from a lot of personal doubt and low-self esteem as a result of her inability to assist some people, and sometimes feels that she is worsening the trouble due to her inexperience.



As a NPC, Hope is located in the Residential District, in front of the Cathedral. After she becomes recruitable, she can be found in Deliverance Park.


Hope can be recruited after completing Hope Springs Eternal.
