- "We are Ursula's New Groove! And we'll do what we can."
- – Ursula
Ursula (Japanese: ナナコオリ, Nanakoori) is a Rare Blade in Xenoblade Chronicles 2. She can grant tremendous power to her Drivers, Rex, Nia, Zeke or Mòrag, and their allies. Ursula uses the ice element, wields Knuckle Claws, and acts as a Healer in battle. She is a young girl who carries branches of shiny white lily of the valley. She is accompanied by a polar bear she has named Beary.
Ursula was designed by Risa Ebata (Satelight Inc.), who also designed Dahlia.
Ursula is a very kindhearted yet soft-spoken Blade always accompanied by Beary. She enjoys singing a great deal. However, she is incredibly shy and has great difficulty bringing herself to meet new people, much less sing in front of an audience.
Usula has the appearance of a young child, with shoulder length pastel blue hair, pale skin and large blue eyes. She has two large sprigs of lily of the valley in her hair and wears a woollen poncho. Beary looks like a polar bear with overly large paws, and often walks on its hind legs. Beary's existence is not explained.
Heart-to-heart and Blade Quest
Ursula's Heart-to-heart, "Not Quite Comfortable Yet", occurs on the Cobalt Cliffs in Uraya between Ursula, her Driver, and Tora. In it Ursula expresses discomfort with her Driver and the party, but is reassured that she is allowed to take her time learning to trust them all.
Ursula's Blade Quest, Bearing Her Soul (a bear pun), starts when Ursula is offered an instrument by a Gormotti child in Torigoth. Upon playing and singing Ursula draws a crowd including a Nopon who scouts her as a commercial singer. She then practices during merc missions to build her confidence and skills until she is able to deliver a spectacular performance for a packed theater in Mor Ardain. Afterwards she returns the instrument to the child in Torigoth, and thanks her.
