|~ Leia Rolando to Milla Maxwell|
Leia Rolando is one of the six playable characters in the 2011 video game Tales of Xillia, as well as a playable character in Tales of Xillia 2. She's also the childhood friend of lead male protagonist Jude Mathis. She first appears when Jude and Milla Maxwell arrive in Jude's hometown Leronde, which they come to in the hopes of treating Milla's legs. After helping Jude recover an aspyrixis to heal Milla, she stows away on the ship that Milla, Jude, Alvin, Elize Lutus and Rowen J. Ilbert were on and insists on coming with them. She is the last main character to be introduced and join the party.
Leia is a young, 15-year-old girl with short brown hair, covered by a white headband, and green eyes. Her outfit consists of a white dress with yellow markings and two pieces of fabric hanging from the shoulders, as well as small brown boots.
A perky apprentice nurse from Jude's hometown, Leia is Jude's childhood friend and training partner. She is a massive fan of sports, although she favours effort over victory.
Her special ability is Elongating Staff, which increases the reach of her weapon if she dodges an attack. Her Support ability Item Steal gives her a chance to steal rare items from a downed enemy.
