The future doesn't belong to you!

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

"If the Architect does indeed exist, I wish I could ask him... Who am I, truly?"
— Jin

Jin (Japanese: シン, Shin) is an antagonist in Xenoblade Chronicles 2. He is the head of the secret organization Torna who wants to find and capture Pyra, seconded by Malos.

Originally known as the Paragon of Torna, Jin's powers revolve around the use of ice and lightning-fast movement. After becoming a Flesh Eater, his powers are greatly enhanced, being able to control elementary particles, albeit suffering from severe pain from time to time.

Jin was designed by Tetsuya Nomura, a lead character designer for the Final Fantasy series.


Jin is a sombre Blade of few words, which gives him a cold and somewhat unfriendly demeanor. Despite this he cares deeply for those he feels responsible for (Lora, young Mikhail, and Malos) and despite his distaste for fighting will not hesitate to defend them with force. Upon becoming a Flesh Eater his worldview, previously quite kind and defensive of people regardless of their relationship to him, changes drastically as he loses faith in humanity and begins to wish not only for his own death but that of the Architect.


Jin is a tall, well built man with shoulder-length white hair, fair skin and blue eyes. His core crystal is blue, diamond-shaped and located under his fringe on his forehead; when in public he usually wears a horned face-mask to hide that he is a Blade - and, initially, the paragon of Torna. He wears white and silver armour.

Upon becoming a flesh-eater, Jin's true appearance changes; although he can retain his normal Blade form, his core crystal becomes completely red and upon using his strengthened powers he gains black plate armour open at the chest to expose a wound, presumably intended to cross his heart.


Previous Life

Jin with Ornelia and her family

Jin was known as the Paragon of Torna. Jin was once the Blade of a person named Ornelia, and was a member of the Colony Defense Force. They fought together in a war for independence, saving villages, and eventually Ornelia passed away, leaving Jin to return to his Core Crystal until he was reawakened. Before he did, however, he wrote down in his journal a way for he and his Driver to be carved together in flesh. He also mused whether the Architect exists, and wondered who he truly is. During his time with Ornelia, he was also close friends with Azurda.

Resonance with Lora

Jin resonates with Lora

Later, Jin’s Core Crystal was stolen by Gort and resonates with a ten-year-old girl named Lora. When Gort threatened to kill her to take possession of Jin, Jin stopped him instead, cutting his right arm off in the process, in order to protect her. Jin and Lora later went on the run, and Lora created a special mask for Jin to hide his identity.

Aegis War

Jin with his Driver, Lora

Jin and Lora eventually came across a razed Porton Village, where they find Mikhail. They took him in and offered to take care of him. The group later encountered one of Malos' Artifices, a Gargoyle, but are rescued by Addam and Mythra. Addam was amazed at the synergy between Jin and Lora and their unique fighting style of sharing a weapon. Addam ultimately decided not to bring in Lora for stealing Jin's Core Crystal and chose to team up with Jin. Both Addam and Hugo decided to copy the technique of sharing a weapon.

Jin later traveled to Gormott with Lora in hopes of finding Lora's mother, Rynea. Torigoth, however, had been razed by rogue Coeian forces. Jin briefly left Lora as she stayed behind to honor the graves of the people of Torigoth. Gort attempted to ambush Lora and kill her to reclaim Jin, but Jin rushed to Lora's side. At Lora's request, Jin didn't kill Gort and allowed him to escape.

While stopping in Hyber Village, Lora and Jin were approached by Teo who claimed to have known Jin and Ornelia when he was young; he told them that the old house Jin once lived in was still standing in the outskirts of a nearby village. Upon investigating, Jin found his journal, and read what he had written about joining together the spirits of a Driver and their Blade. He decided to keep this information hidden from Lora.

Jin fights Malos

Jin joined the group as they confront Malos at the capital Auresco. After the battle, the Tornan King recognized Lora's heroics, and Addam knighted her the following day. Lora remarked that Jin no longer needs the mask to hide his identity, but he continued to keep it in hopes of remembering Lora once he returns to his Core Crystal. As Jin and the others battled Malos at the Tornan Titan's core, Jin questioned Malos' bloodlust. Malos claimed that most humans are not like Lora and are instead corrupt beings.

Lora's Death

After the war, Jin, Lora, Haze, and Mikhail parted ways with Addam as he and Pyra traveled to Leftheria. They spent some time in Gormott before eventually traveling to Spessia to meet up with Addam's militia. One night, Gort, transformed into a large chimera by the Indoline Praetorium, attacked the group. By using Jin's sword, Lora was able to kill Gort once and for all.

Lora's death

Amalthus, now promoted to Praetor, issued an attack on Tornans' new home of Spessia in hopes of destroying the Aegis. In the attack, Lora was fatally wounded. She told Jin that for humans, being forgotten is a fate worse than death, and though Jin assured her that he would not forget her, they both knew that the nature of Blades would not allow his memories to be passed down after her death and his return to his Core Crystal. With his knowledge about Flesh Eaters, Jin was able to join Lora's spirit with his own by eating her heart, ensuring that he could live on without a Driver and retain the memories they had made together.

New Torna

Malos recruits Jin

Malos, having survived his battle with Mythra, later met a dejected Jin in a city alleyway and offered to work with him. The two formed the new organization of Torna, with the goal of going to Elysium and killing the Architect. Using the Monoceros, Jin finds Ornelia's house drifting in the Cloud Sea after it fell off of the Tornan Titan. He burns the house down with his old journal and the group photographs with Lora and Ornelia inside. Azurda meets him at the house, but Jin states that their paths will not cross again. Jin then puts Lora's body in suspended animation on board the Monoceros to remind himself to never have faith in the Architect.

Jin became the de facto leader of the group. He rescued Mikhail from the Indoline Praetorium after Mikhail was turned into a Blade Eater. He found Akhos and Patroka, two other Flesh Eaters, imprisoned and being transferred from Tantal to Indol. He asked them to join him, and they agreed. He also breaks Nia and Dromarch out of Indoline custody, and Nia joins him as well. Jin knew that the first step was to reawaken the other Aegis, who had been sealed away by Addam after the end of the war.

Re-awakening of Pyra

He requests a person from the Leftherian Archipelago to help on a salvage mission, with Rex ultimately agreeing to the job. The salvage team manages to bring up the target shipwreck, and once inside, Jin finds his target, the Aegis. However, Rex unexpectedly begins to resonate with it, prompting Jin to stab him in the back, killing him. However, Rex is ultimately resurrected by Pyra and, with the help of Azurda and Nia, manages to escape, leaving Jin empty-handed.

Later, at the Olethro Ruins, Akhos reveals that Jin plans on using the Aegis to wipe humanity from existence in the world of Alrest.

Titan weapon

Jin kills Haze

Jin travels to the ruins of Judicium on the Titan Temperantia, and takes control of a Titan weapon that was being excavated by the Empire of Mor Ardain. With it, he fires on the Kingdom of Uraya's forces, making it seem as if the Empire had illegally attacked them and nearly sparking a war. The party fights him atop the Titan, where he reveals to be a Blade, but with his powers limited by Fan la Norne, Haze's new identity, they manage to force him away; however, he kills Fan la Norne by stabbing her through her Core Crystal and escapes with Akhos. It is soon revealed that Jin's Core Crystal is partially damaged due to his life as a Flesh Eater.

True Form

Jin's Flesh-eater form

He is fought again in the Genbu Crown, where he demands the party hand over the Omega Fetter and the Aegis. When they refuse, he reveals his true form, which gives him control over all elementary particles and allows him to move his body at the speed of light, making it impossible to dodge his attacks, even with Mythra's foresight. He is able to withstand Mythra's attack from Siren, and along with a new army of artificial Blades, he and the other members of Torna restrain the entire party. When Pyra threatens to destroy herself with the power of Siren to thwart their plans, he lets the party go, but leaves with Pyra and the Omega Fetter.

He and Malos are later fought at the Cliffs of Morytha, he was shocked when Rex expresses his understanding on what it means to be Driver and Blade and when Rex attains his Master Driver state and is able to match him blow for blow. As he is defeated, Rex noticed the sadness in his opponent and refused to finish him. After a heated battle between Ophion and Siren, he, along with Rex and his companions, falls through the Cloud Sea to the Land of Morytha below.

Land of Morytha

Mythra assumes her ascended state to heal Jin, and in the process, she discovers that he is a Flesh Eater. Jin temporarily joins the party to escape Morytha, where the Monoceros comes to retrieve him. During their time in Morytha, Jin reveals that Amalthus was the one who massacred the remaining Tornan citizens on Spessia and that he consumed Lora's heart to continue living. He convinces Malos, Akhos, Mikhail, and Patroka not to attack the group, and they leave for the World Tree.

Climbing the World Tree

Malos bids Jin goodbye

He and Malos leave the others and climb the World Tree. Jin stays behind at the Megrez Gateway to meet the party again, letting Malos go to meet the Architect alone. He tells them that he wants to see for himself if the world will choose Rex or Malos, but that he cannot let them pass without a fight. He says that he made a promise to see through Malos' will, even if it means his death.

He cannot understand why Rex wants to open up Elysium to humanity, thinking that they will eventually destroy it as they did with Morytha and Torna. Rex is able to defeat him, knocking his sword out of his hand and convincing Jin that the Blades are supposed to keep humans in check. As they talk, Akhos and Patroka arrive to help him. Jin orders them to stand down, saying that they have done all they have needed. Patroka asks Nia to heal Jin; she agrees and Patroka goes to prepare him for treatment. As she goes, however, she is killed by Amalthus, who has used all of the Core Crystals he "cleansed" to gain immense power.

Jin faces Amalthus

Amalthus also rips out Akhos' Core Crystal, killing him and enraging Jin, but he is too weak to fight; instead, the party fights Amalthus, defeating him. Still intent on meeting the Architect and erasing everything in the world himself, he sends out his tendrils of energy to try and destroy the World Tree from the inside. Telling Rex to stop Malos, Jin releases all the power he has left, freezing Amalthus to the back wall. After Amalthus dies, Jin's Core Crystal finally cracks, and he falls to his knees and dissolves in a white light.

In Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

Jin appears as a Spirit in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate that can be obtained on the Xenoblade Chronicles 2 DLC Spirit Board.


  • Jin is a Blade using the ice element. This can be shown in Xenoblade Chronicles 2 with his use of ice-based attacks. Moreover when he joins the party during Chapter 8, Guldos can copy his element, where they become weak to the wind element, and when he becomes Enraged during his boss fights he becomes weak to the wind element. It is explicit in TTGC.
  • Jin is the only Blade whose Core Crystal is not located on his chest. It is instead located on his forehead.
  • Jin is the only party member in Xenoblade Chronicles 2, temporary or permanent, to not be a Driver. Jin is also the only temporary party member to temporarily rejoin the party.
  • For unknown reasons, Jin has voice clips for reviving or being revived by Tora, Mòrag, and Zeke, despite never being in the party at the same time as them. This trait is unique to him, as Vandham and Malos don't have any voice clips for Zeke and Mòrag, and Malos has no clips for Tora.
  • Jin shares his name with a prominent character from Xenosaga, who is also an ice-element swordsman with a younger female dependant.
