Leia Rolando (レイア・ロランド Reia Rorando?) is a protagonist from Tales of Xillia. She is an apprentice nurse and childhood friend of Jude Mathis. Leia is employed at a clinic owned by Jude's family in his hometown of Lu Rondo, and she also works as the "poster girl" for her family's inn.
After Jude and Milla return to his hometown of Lu Rondo, they meet Leia. Leia joins them to search for a valuable ore that is needed to heal Milla's legs, which were severely injured in the fight with Nachtigal. After healing Milla, Leia decides to join the party, without telling her family, having found a rival in Milla for Jude's affection, and wanting to change herself to become a stronger person.
Appearance and Personality
Leia is a young, fifteen-year-old girl. She has short brown hair covered by a white head band and has green eyes. Her outfit consists of a white dress and small brown boots. Leia is very bright and mostly seen happy, she will always try to cheer everyone up and help them get rid of their problems. Her kind demeanour and cute appearance contrasts sharply with her rabid love of sports and fighting competitions, though she values effort over victory. She is revealed to have "bullied" Jude in their childhood, though she does not realize this, considering everything part of their games they played. She had decided to become a nurse at the Mathis family's clinic to become closer to Jude.
Leia uses staves as her weapon. Her primary stat from her Liliale Orb is Stamina, even though her total Stamina stat is not significantly higher than others. She also has relatively high Agility, only beaten by Jude, allowing her to move quickly in battle. Her characteristic skill is "Staff Expansion" (活伸棍術 Kasshinkonjutsu?) which is activated when Leia successfully dodges an attack using the back step motion. Her staff then turns white and becomes extended, enlarging her range and attack power for a small duration. Leia has skills available to improve the duration of Staff Expansion, as well as one to enable the skill upon Flash Guarding an attack. Leia's artes have a focus towards aerial combat. All but one of her attacking artes and her ougi have aerial enabled, and many cause her to become airborne after use.
Being an apprentice nurse, Leia has access to "Spirit Magic" (精霊術 Seireijutsu?). Leia's Spirit Magic consists primarily of single target healing spells, and single target support spells. Leia's Fancy Elements is the only way to enable elemental damage on a weapon with no element. Leia's partner characteristic support skill is "Item Steal" (アイテムスティール Aitemusutiiru?). While Leia is the slave character, if the master is attacking a downed enemy, she has a chance to attempt to steal an item.
