"...Whuh?! AAAAAH! I'm falliiiing! OR AM I?! ...What in the heck? A nice birdie saved me! ...Wait, no, it didn't! Oh, hell no! I am NOT going to be eaten like some worm! AAAAUUUGH! HELP ME, CHIEEEEEEF!"
– Mia

Mia (Japanese: ミーア, Mīa; English dub: /ˈmiː.ə/) is a recruitable playable character in Xenoblade Chronicles X. She is a Curator and a member of the private military organization BLADE.


Mia is a human with green eyes and short blonde hair.


Mia is a cheerful, adventure-seeking girl with an exuberant personality. She is good at getting herself into trouble, but only because of her extreme desire for exploration. She shares with Cross that she aspires to become just like her parents, two seasoned explorers who would often leave her for the greater part of a year as they traveled the world. She also shared that they praised her habit of wandering, showing encouragement instead of anger when she would stray as a child. She hopes to make them proud by continuing their legacy on Mira.



Her location varies depending on how many of the normal missions have been completed. Once she is recruitable, she can be found on the deck of the Ma-non Ship.


Unlike other recruitable characters who can only be recruited after finishing a specific Affinity Mission, recruiting Mia requires the completion of a chain of Normal Missions. She can be recruited after the normal mission Mia is Missing!.

In battle

Mia's Class is Psycorruptor. When she first becomes recruitable, she is level 46 and rank 3. She wields a Knife and a Raygun. Her two Signature Arts are Clarity Ray and Beam Bomber (Both Raygun). She has three skill slots. Her class progression is as follows:

Main story

Mia does not play a large role in the main story. However, she makes a quick appearance in the ending credits scene. She is seen with Tatsu as multiple Nopon come to New LA.

Personal story

After washing out of BLADE training, Mia decides to venture on her own, and manages to talk Cross into gathering some equipment for her. With new weapons and armor in hand, Mia sets off across the Mira. She occasionally runs into trouble, but fortunately Cross coincidentally shows up just in time to help her out.

Before Chapter 12 "Hey there, Chief! You get a new mission? If it's something good, can I help? Please? Pleeeeeasepleasepleaseplease?!" "All right! I can't wait to show you how far I've come. Your eyes are gonna spring right out of your head." "Awww, come on! You gotta take ol' Mia with you!"
During Chapter 12 "This is the moment BLADE has been waiting for. We're going after the Lifehold Core, and we're gonna WIN...for sure! Hey, and I bet you're leading the charge, huh, Chief? Look, I'll shoot straight-you have to take me with you. I've learned a lot, and I'm gonna put it to good use, and you'll be so amazed you won't even believe it!" "I am psyched, Chief. PSYCHED! We've got this baby in the bag." "Awww, come on! You gotta take ol' Mia with you!"
After Chapter 12 "Hey, so I know we achieved our main goal in securing the Lifehold Core and all that jazz, which is good. But there are still a metric ton of exciting things to see here on Mira. We can't stop now, Chief--we gotta roll crazy-stayle. You and Mia still got all sorts of wacky adventures left!" "Then let's get our stuff together and go! This is gonna be craaaaa-zy!" "Awww, come on! You gotta take ol' Mia with you!"


  • "Pop quiz time, Chief! You get an urgent life or death request from a Nopon... You're supposed to meet him here, but he's hours late... What do you do?"
  • "That's what all the Nopon boys say, but...I just see cute."
  • "What can I say? When you've seen what I've seen, you can just sense these things. And I sense you want...the Sword of Legendaryness!"
  • "Oh my gosh, RIGHT?! I'm gonna be describing this moment to a therapist at some point. What a nightmare..."
  • "Looking at them, I think that's probably how my folks were, too."
    "Each one serving as the other's compass. The perfect partners for adventure..."
    "Now I really miss my dads."
