Xenoblade Wiki
Spoiler alert

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.

"An endless field of green among the clouds, eh? If the legends are true, even people like me..."
— Nia

Nia (Japanese: ニア, Nia, Niyah) is one of the main playable characters in Xenoblade Chronicles 2. She is a Gormotti Driver and is accompanied by her special Blade, Dromarch, who calls her "Lady" (お嬢様, Ojōsama) like a butler. She comes from Gormott Province. Originally a member of Torna, she defects to Rex's side after Pyra's awakening.


Nia usually comes across as sarcastic and cynical, always having a witty put-down at other characters' shortcomings. She is initially unfriendly and dismissive of Rex, particularly due to his belief in Elysium which she sees as childish naivety. She has a good political understanding of the annexing of Gormott by the Empire of Mor Ardain, and opts to save lives where possible in opposition to the other members of Torna. She displays empathy for Pyra's situation and develops a teasing camaraderie with the rest of the party, warming especially to Rex as she gets to know him better.

As the Queen of Agnus, Nia attempts to conceal her blunt and uncouth attitude with an air of refinement under the impression that her usual self would be considered undignified, but she has little success in doing so.


In Xenoblade Chronicles 2

Nia's Driver form is that of a young Gormotti girl with neck-length silver hair styled into a bob cut with matching feline ears on top of her head. She has amber eyes, three white stripe tattoos on her face, and elongated canine teeth. She is quite short and has a petite frame. She wears a feline-hooded yellow one-piece jumpsuit with gold-trimmed white armor plates around her chest and upper arms, and wears a brown utility belt around her hips with three daggers. She wears red and white heeled boots which come up at the top into large decorated white and black cones, which extend past her knees around the front and around her calves from the back.

Alternate Costumes

Blood Witch, Candy Stripe, Fancy Sundress

Nia's Driver form has three alternate costumes which can be obtained as DLC Aux Cores via Challenge Battle Mode. These are:

In Xenoblade Chronicles 3

Nia as the Queen of Agnus

Nia as the Queen of Agnus

As the Queen of Agnus, Nia wears long, hooded white robes with red accents resembling a kimono, with a large white bow on the back. Her dress is decorated with various golden accessories reminiscent of her Blade form. Her hair is now shorter coming down only to her shoulders. She retains her long pointed ears which are now attached to a white crown with golden accents and three light blue jewels coming down the front. Her crimson/aqua diamond core crystal is visible on her chest. While she retains most of her facial features, her eyes are distinctly more pointed.

As a Hero, Nia wears a short yellow dress with a black belt around her waist, resembling her original Driver form. Nia also retains her wrist guards and shoes from her driver form. The back of her outfit is lined with white cloth with golden accents, with 2 pieces coming down toward her legs resembling her Blade form. Below her dress, she wears black leggings with a white band around her right thigh, reminiscent of Massive Melee Mythra. She wields a longer, curved version of her Catalyst Scimitar as well as two apparitions of Pyra's and Mythra's Aegis Swords floating behind her. This combination is now referred to as the Anima Sword in game.


In Xenoblade Chronicles 2

"Her life is tied to yours."
— Nia's Father

Nia resonates with Dromarch

Nia was the Blade of the wealthy lord of Echell in Gormott Province, who had a daughter, Nia's "sister," who was very frail and sickly. Nia studied to be a lady, until her Driver spent all of their money in search for a cure for his daughter and lost his status as a lord. The family became drifters, and the harsher lifestyle took a toll on the lord's daughter, who died not long afterwards. The lord made Nia consume his daughter's body, and Nia became a Flesh Eater and began addressing the lord as her "father."

Nia is rescued by Jin

Soon after the death of her sister, Nia's Driver passed away as well, and Nia found a Core Crystal of his and resonated with it, bonding her to Dromarch. The two began wandering around Alrest. Her status as a Flesh Eater caused the Indoline Praetorium to hunt them down, and the two were captured. Jin manages to free them, leading Nia to join him and the rest of Torna.

Nia meets Rex after she, Jin, and Malos go to Argentum Trade Guild to find help in salvaging a sunken ship. She initially shows skepticism at Rex's dream of finding Elysium, but is nonetheless horrified when Jin kills Rex, which leaves her hesitant to continue to associate with Torna. This causes her to get caught in the Monoceros' attack on the sunken ship, though Azurda manages to save both Rex and Nia in time.

Nia fights alongside Rex

Rex and Nia crash land on Gormott, where they eventually make their way to Torigoth. Upon arrival, several soldiers from the Empire of Mor Ardain see them and attempt to apprehend them with the help of Brighid. Though Rex and Pyra are able to escape, Nia and Dromarch are captured. Mòrag later uses Nia as bait to lure Rex and Pyra into a trap, though the four escape. Nia attempts to part ways afterwards, but Rex's conviction in his goal convinces her to stay.

In Uraya, the party encounter Akhos and Obrona, who taunt Nia for switching sides. After their defeat she talks about her time in Torna. Later Akhos and Malos fight Vandham and Nia considers healing him, but is too afraid to use her power.

After the incident in Temperantia, the Empire of Mor Ardain and the Kingdom of Uraya have a summit where Bana attempts to kill everyone present with an explosive device. Emperor Niall nearly sacrifices himself to save the others, but Nia is able to revive him after asking Dromarch to distract the rest of the party so they do not see her powers.

Nia reveals her true form

As the group ventures through Spirit Crucible Elpys, she begins showing signs of fatigue, similar to the Blades and Zeke. She begins sharing stories of her past, and Rex tells her to stay true to herself. Nia finally reveals herself as a Flesh Eater in the Vault of Heroes when the party is overwhelmed by Phantasms. She thanks Rex for helping her see that she should not be afraid of who she is, and proclaims that she is free of her past, and of Jin. Nia confesses that she loves Rex for helping her find this freedom, to which he replies that he loves all of his friends, and they team up as Driver and Blade. Together, they fight the Phantasms until the voice of Addam himself tells them that Rex is the one who he has been waiting for to wield the true Aegis.

Nia fights as Rex's Blade as they travel to the Cliffs of Morytha to rescue Pyra. Malos meets the party in Balquors Ruins and taunts Nia for deciding to reveal her true nature having betrayed Torna, and uses his revived Aegis powers to attack the party. Nia explains that Malos' power is to destroy all he touches, but that hers is to restore - which she does, much to Malos' annoyance. Eventually she turns on him and uses her ability to make his cells replicate at an incredible rate, like a very fast-acting cancer, which debilitates him enough that he falls from the ruins and is assumed dead.

Nia on the title screen

Later Rex is manipulated into fighting specters of his friends; Nia and Dromarch's confront him about him loving Pyra instead of Nia, and he flees from them in hurt and confusion.

Finally, upon Pyra and Mythra's revival, Nia gives Rex encouragement to go to them having made her peace with his decision. In the title screen after a completed New Game Plus, she can be seen running to the three and joining their chain of linked hands.

In Xenoblade Chronicles 3

Nia with a baby in a group photo

At the end of Xenoblade Chronicles 3, Nia and Poppi are reunited, they happily stare at a group photo of them and their old companions with Pyra, Mythra, and Nia each holding a baby, and Rex standing behind them. However, due to her being a Flesh Eater and thus immortal, she would end up outliving most of her comrades, with Poppi being the only one confirmed to still be alive. Throughout the game, it is also hinted several times that Mio might be a descendant of Nia.

At some point in the distant future, the two worlds that Klaus created by splitting the original apart began to re-fuse back together, which would effectively destroy both. Making contact with Melia in the remains of Bionis as their worlds drew nearer to one another, she helped devise a plan that would allow their worlds to survive. Both worlds would construct one half of an ark dubbed "Origin" that contained all of their societies' knowledge and their citizens' literal souls, which would allow them to be reborn after their worlds were split apart and returned to their original forms.

Unfortunately, the Origin system became corrupted by the desires for safety and security held by the souls it contained, creating an entity called Z. Z hijacked the whole separation process between the world, and instead of being divided both worlds were frozen in time and a third one was created between them to create a world without change. Nia would escape Z and enter cryogenic sleep, preparing the Ouroboros Stones using what little energy from Origin she still had access to and her own Core Crystal. She entrusted the key to her hideaway to the renegade Consul M, trusting that people would be able to defy Z in the future and free her along with Melia. Poppi was fused with a supercomputer near Nia's resting place, but was still connected to Nia and the outside world through the computer and could use it to inform her of current events. Nia's people, meanwhile, were recreated in this new world but had been completely taken over by Z and his Consuls using a robotic double of her as a puppet ruler. Under Z's rule, Agnus would wage a perpetual war with Keves, effectively keeping the world in "a state of 'now'".

After the party liberates Agnus Castle, Mio, thanks to M's memories, leads the party to the Cloudkeep on Captocorn Peak in order to meet with Nia. However, as Nia begins to awaken, she is attacked by Moebius D and J. Thankfully, their attack isn't fatal on account of stabbing her heart rather than her Core Crystal, and she later regains consciousness after the two Moebius are defeated.

Upon awakening and introducing herself, Nia tells the party the story of how Aionios was created and about Origin. She also gives them a piece of Origin Metal needed to get to Origin and reveals that Melia is being held captive within Origin itself.

During the post-game, which turns back time to before the final boss battle, Nia has a Hero Quest which sees her joining the protagonists' party (which she unconvincingly insists is in no way because she finds being a queen lonely and boring). Her second Hero Quest involves meeting people who helped her in the past and teaching the party members more of Alrest by traversing the map to several points of interest, including: the memorial of the first-generation Ouroboros, where she speaks with Mio about the unusually close connection she felt with her (the further explanation of which is interrupted before she can fully clarify), Ghondor and her family's connections to Alrest's Vandham, a tree originating from Alrest and how much of Aionios' terrain originates from there, and the High Maktha Wildwood, which Nia reveals to be the ruins of the Land of Morytha. While they are at the latter location, Nia reflects on how the people of the world that became Morytha destroyed themselves; they too feared the prospect of coming to an end, and pursued the same "eternity" that Z now wishes to impose upon Aionios.

The quest concludes with the party traveling to the summit of The Cavity, where Nia admits that she wished to make a new memory with them despite not knowing if she would even be able to remember anything about Bionis or Aionios following the separation of the worlds. She questions her own place in the world, as she considers herself a relic from a bygone era, but Mio manages to convince her to continue to be a part of their future in whatever form it might take after the two worlds have split again.

A spectral version of Nia is fought as a Driver enemy during Chapter 10, in the First Low Orbit Station. She is the first of the four party members to be fought and is supported by her Blade, Dromarch.

As a Blade

As revealing herself as a Special Legendary Blade in Chapter 7, Nia can grant tremendous power to her Driver Rex and his allies. She uses the water element, wields a Catalyst Scimitar, and acts as an Healer in battle. After transforming into a Blade, Nia can return to Driver form and back at any time in the menu.

When being used as a Blade, Nia will not obtain any experience, SP or WP. Instead she will gain bonus experience.


As a Blade, Nia drops her feline mannerisms and appears more visually similar to a kitsune. She retains her facial markings, eyes, and elongated canines from her Driver form. Her hair now comes down to her legs and is styled into very low twintails tied up with red shimenawa-like rope. Her ears are now much longer, point upwards and outwards, and are decorated around the base. Her clothing resembles a miko outfit, which consists of a white gold-and-red trimmed leotard, with her Core Crystal - shaped like an upside down blue geometric kite with red blotches from being a Flesh Eater - visible on her chest, and matching large detached sleeves with white gloves. Both the leotard and sleeves are adorned with red rope with the former decorated with gold-colored bells. Her boots are now red with large gold spikes on the toe caps, with gold-trimmed white thigh-high leggings. Her default Catalyst Scimitar is a long blue blade with flowers running along it, with a guarded golden hilt.
