Nia is the tritagonist of Xenoblade Chronicles 2. She is a Driver who harnesses the power of a Blade named Dromarch, who calls her "Lady" like a butler. She comes from the Gormott Province. Originally a member of Torna, she defects to Rex after Pyra's awakening. If Nia is in the lead with Dromarch on the field, the player can control him to move on the field, with Nia riding on his back.
She is voiced by Hitomi Ōwada in the Japanese version and Catrin-Mai Huw in the English version.

|~ Nia's Father|
Nia was an ordinary healer Blade belonging to the daughter of a nobleman in the Gormott Province. However, her Driver soon got incredibly ill with nothing, be it regular medicine or healing Arts, able to save her. In a last ditch attempt to save her, the nobleman fused his daughter's cells with Nia thus turning Nia into a Flesh Eater Blade. Nia lost her immortality and was raised as the nobleman's daughter. Once the nobleman died, she bonded with his Core Crystal and because she was being hunted by Indol for her Flesh Eater nature, she eventually found herself working for Torna which lead to her meeting and joining Rex.
Powers & Abilities
- Healing Manipulation: As a result of being a Flesh Eater, Nia's healing powers have increased exponentially. Her powers allow her to heal her teammates but she can also manipulate the healing factors of her enemies such as Malos. She can even "invert" the healing factor to erode enemies from the inside.
- Water Manipulation: Nia also has mastery over water and implements this in her attacks and healing.
- Claws: Seems to possess claws as a result of having Gormotti cells merged with her. She used these claws to easily shred up her wanted poster.
- Weapon Manifestation: Like all Blades, Nia possesses the ability to generate a weapon that both she and her Driver, Rex, can use. Nia's particular weapon is the Catalyst Scimitar
- Force-Field Generation: Another standard ability that all Blades possess though Nia also seems to have a variant where she can use this to heal everyone inside.
