Noah – playable character

Class: Swordfighter

Noah is an off-seer from Keves. He is an attacker and specialises in closing with the enemy and fighting them up close and up personally with his sword. The purpose of an off-seer is to send on the voices of the departed, and they play a significant role in the team’s make-up. With a determined look and long hair, he looks like he means business.

Eunie – playable character

Class: Medic Gunner

Eunie has wings sticking out of her head – what more could you want? Also hailing from Keves, her personality has a thorny exterior, but she has a sensitive core once you get to know her. Despite her toughness, she’s the team’s healer and has been friends with Noah and Lanz since they were children.

Lanz – playable character

Class: Heavy Guard

If his rippling muscles didn’t clue you in, Lanz is a rough and tumble brawler who loves nothing more than to take on the enemy at point-blank range. He’s also the childhood friend of the other Keves characters, Noah and Eunie.

xenoblade chronicles 3 characters mio

Mio – playable character

Class: Zephyr

Mio is an off-seer from Agnus and can be seen as their equivalent of Noah. She’s kind, compassionate, and empathetic. She is more thoughtful, and that is reflected in role, where she is a defender rather than an attacker.

xenoblade chronicles 3 characters taion

Taion – playable character

Class: Tactician
A healer from Agnus, Taion is quick thinking and sharp as a whip – in case his glasses and typical JRPG smart-boy demeanour didn’t give it away. His role revolved around being a battlefield tactician, and he takes a more logical and scientific approach to problems and differences the team faces.

xenoblade chronicles 3 characters sena

Sena – playable character

Class: Ogre

Sena may seem like a small warrior from Agnus, but she worlds her giant hammer with ferocity. She has a quiet and shy personality, and she shares a special bond with Mio. She is an attacker, so you’ll find her at the front of the pack smashing skulls.

Those are all the Xenoblade Chronicles 3 characters that you can play in the JRPG. If you want to see who breathes life into them, check out our Xenoblade Chronicles 3 cast and voice actors guide. The game is also getting DLC in the form of an expansion pass.
