"For us humans, being forgotten is a much worse fate than death."
— Lora

Lora (Japanese: ラウラ, Raura, Laura) is a character in Xenoblade Chronicles 2. She was a Tornan Driver during the Aegis War, and her Blades were Haze and Jin. She and Haze shared an incredibly close bond, reflected in their nearly identical appearances and personalities. Together with Jin, she is the main playable character and protagonist in Torna ~ The Golden Country, in which she is a mercenary searching for her mother Rynea as well as Jin's closest friend.


Early Life

Lora driving Haze

At ten years old, Lora resonated with Jin. Gort had stolen Jin's Core Crystal from the Tornan royalty, and when he threatened to kill her in order to keep Jin for himself, Jin stopped him, severing his right arm in the process to protect Lora. It was implied that the two went on the run following the event, with Lora taking measures to hide Jin's identity as a stolen Blade. These included a mask that covered the upper half of his face, including his Core Crystal. Lora eventually joined a mercenary group. At an unknown point, Lora also resonated with Haze, whose extremely close bond to Lora leads them to look near identical.

Aegis War

Seventeen years later, Lora is searching for her mother Rynea, who she has been separated from for some time. Whilst travelling through the Lasaria Region Lora and Jin find Mikhail in the ruins of Porton Village and offer to take care of him. They also encounter one of Malos' Gargoyles, an Artifice, and Addam and Mythra save them from the Artifice by using Siren's power. Addam is surprised to see that Jin has resonated with someone as young as Lora. After a brief battle, Addam decides not to bring in Lora for "stealing" Jin, and Lora eventually becomes one of Addam's allies. The quartet are soon joined by Haze and Milton, and the party heads to Torigoth, where Haze reports Rynea to be staying.

Lora finds her mother's necklace

Unfortunately, Torigoth has been razed. The party travels to a cemetery and find a charm that Lora made for Rynea adorning a grave. The group is accused by the Ardainian army of being Coeian rebels who destroyed Torigoth. Luckily, the arrival of the Ardainian Emperor Hugo, a friend of Addam's, helps clear up the situation and Hugo, along with his Blades Brighid and Aegaeon, join the group. Lora and Haze stay behind in Torigoth in order to decorate the graves while the others travel to the Ardainian Warship. Gort and his group of mercenaries manage to ambush Lora and Haze. Gort, now having a new mechanical arm, intends to kill Lora to reclaim Jin as his blade. Realising what is happening, Jin rushes back to Lora and cuts off both of Gort's arms. At Lora's request, Jin doesn't kill Gort and lets him escape.

Eventually, the group returns to the Kingdom of Torna, where they learn of Malos's plan to assault Auresco. While stopping in Hyber Village, Jin and Lora explore the house of Jin's former Driver, Ornelia. Jin finds his old journal but keeps it hidden from Lora, and Lora prompts the entire group to take a picture together.

Lora is knighted

As Malos attacks Auresco, the party manages to stave off part of Malos's attack, but ultimately are unsuccessful in preventing Malos from reaching the seal on Torna's power. Nevertheless, their bravery prompts Addam's father, the Tornan King, to knight Lora the day after the assault, much to the ire of High Prince Zettar. Lora then joins Addam on the journey to the Titan's core to stop Malos. In the final showdown with Malos, the Tornan Titan sinks beneath the Cloud Sea.

Aftermath and Death

After the war, Lora, Haze, Jin, and Mikhail part ways with Addam as he and Pyra journey to Leftheria. She travels to Spessia, where members of Addam's militia and other Tornans have taken refuge. One night the group is ambushed by Gort, who has been transformed into a large chimera-like creature. Lora kills him, and he dissolves into black ashes. Lora remarks that her mother can finally rest peacefully now that Gort is dead.

Lora dies

Amalthus became Praetor and ambushed Spessia in an effort to destroy the Aegis, not knowing that Addam and Pyra had fled to Leftheria. Lora is fatally wounded in the ambush and regretted the thought that Jin would forget her; Jin, devastated that he would be reborn and lose his memories of Lora, sought to become a Flesh Eater, and ate her heart to keep their spirits together. Her body was frozen on board the Marsanes to remind Jin to never have faith in the Architect.

As Jin departs for the World Tree, he instructs Mikhail to keep Lora safe for him. The Marsanes later transformed into a Titan-like mech. Mikhail, piloting the Marsanes, slammed Indol into the World Tree, and the ensuing massive explosion destroyed the Titan, the Marsanes, and Lora's body.

In battle

Lora is a balanced fighter, having fast attacks and an array of arts with various effects. Team Lora can act both as support and attacker, being able to change to Haze for healing or causing debuffs to enemies and Jin for heavy damage.

Post-Battle Dialogue

Lora Lora "You really do have a lot of trouble keeping your power in check, don’t you, Mythra?"
Mythra Mythra "It’s not my fault my enemies fall over when I so much as look at ‘em funny."
Jin Jin "…I would rather not cross swords with her again, if I can avoid it."
Mythra Mythra "With me here, it was obvious we were gonna win."
Jin Jin "Presumptuous, aren't you?"
Mythra Mythra "Hm? What was that now?"
Lora Lora "Easy now, guys. We're all friends here."
Haze Haze "Wow, I never thought we’d find ourselves in the company of emperors and princes."
Lora Lora "It's funny, isn't it? Almost like we've been dropped straight into a fairytale."
Haze Haze "Life is a many splendored thing indeed."
Lora Lora "I couldn't agree more. Let's make the most of it, shall we?"
Haze Haze "Oh, Lady Lora, look. Your sleeve is starting to fray."
Lora Lora "Clothes get torn in battle. There's no way around it, really."
Haze Haze "We both know that when your whole outfit unravels, you'll just end up wanting to borrow mine."
Haze Haze "Blade combo, third stage!"
Lora Lora "Awesome!"
Minoth Minoth "Why does that sound so familiar?"
Hugo (TTGC) Hugo "This is my first time travelling like this! It's quite… refreshing."
Lora Lora "Oh, really? Then why don't we do something to celebrate?"
Haze Haze "That means it's time to party! Gather round, everyone!"
Hugo (TTGC) Hugo "What? Oh, that wasn't what I… N-no, hold on!"
Haze Haze "Master Aegaeon is a… finely sculpted Blade, isn't he?"
Lora Lora "He's got a very stable core, doesn't he? He must have incredible balance. And that form!"
Aegaeon Aegaeon "I would… appreciate it if you could stop staring, now. You're making me blush."
Addam Addam "We make such a wonderful team, you and I!"
Lora Lora "Don't we! I'm about as nimble as you are, uh, royal!"
Addam Addam "I'll drink to that!"
Addam Addam "This is no good. I've got to get a hold of myself."
Lora Lora "You're always looking ahead, Addam. Aren't you forgetting something?"
Addam Addam "Oh? Such as?"
Lora Lora "Just don't shoulder all the burden yourself. You have us to rely on too, sometimes."
Minoth Minoth "Sorry about that. I wasn't paying enough attention."
Lora Lora "Don't worry yourself. We all make mistakes."
Addam Addam "Oh, diddums. Shall I kiss it better for you?"
Minoth Minoth "Stuff a sock in it, clown!"

Addam Addam "Ahah, are you sure about that? He's quite the stern task master."
Hugo (TTGC) Hugo "If you wish Lora. By tomorrow, please transcribe one hundred pages of one of the tornan epics, write a treaty on an ardainian philosopher of your choice, and read a volume of History."
Lora Lora "Er, sorry, the dog ate all of my literature."
Lora Lora "Ahah, that'll teach them. Never underestimate the power of the common folk."
Hugo (TTGC) Hugo "Indeed. The emperor bestows his gratitude."

Minoth Minoth "Hey, I can speak for myself, thank you very much."
Lora Lora "How are you managing there, Hugo? Not too tiring for you?"
Hugo (TTGC) Hugo "Hm? No, I'm quite alright. It will take more than this level of fighting to put me down."
Aegaeon Aegaeon "Uh… Beg pardon, Lady Lora, but worrying about His Majesty's well-being is part of MY responsibilities."
Brighid Brighid "Lora, have you ever considered writing a diary?"
Lora Lora "I've thought about it, actually. But in all honesty, Brighid, I'm happiest keeping all my memories here, in my heart."
Lora Lora "My hair has really been getting in the way whenever I fight. Time for the fringe to go."
Aegaeon Aegaeon "A good idea. 'twould help bring out your beautiful eyes."
Lora Lora "Oh, you think so? Well, thanks, I suppose."
