"As long as you have Skells, who needs food?"
— Alexa

Alexa (アクセナ, Akusena, Axena; English dub: /əˈlɛk.sə/) is a recruitable character in Xenoblade Chronicles X. She is an Outfitter. She worked in the development of new weapons for the Skells in the private military organization BLADE.


Alexa is a human with short red hair and red eyes. She has thick bangs parted to the left side, which leave only a small gap on her forehead. She is approximately 161 cm tall.


Alexa has an extremely energetic and playful personality. She is obsessed with everything Skell related, to the point where she cares for them beyond viewing them as just resources, as if they were people. Despite this, she does care greatly for her human friends and wishes to keep them safe as well. However, her infatuation with the machines have led many to refer to her as the "Skell Nut".



If she is not in the party, Alexa can be found in front of the Outfitters Test Hangar in the Industrial District of New Los Angeles.


Alexa can be recruited after completing Weaponized.

Male Cross (Heroic) Cross - "Fate dealt us these cards, so we have to play them!"

Alexa - "Hey it's a long road ahead but together we can do it."

Male Cross (Joker) Cross - "Everybody okay? Don't make me haul my butt home solo."

Alexa - "I'm all for going home but don't forget the spoils."

Male Cross (Rebel) Cross - "GOD! What is WITH this planet?"

Alexa - "Hey c'mon, every day's an adventure!"

Male Cross (Rookie) Cross - "Keep moving! We can reflect on our battles later."

Alexa - "Yea, what did they say? Live in the now!"

Male Cross (Studious) Cross - "Well... I apologize for losing my cool just then."

Alexa - "Why apologize? We got the job done right?"

Male Cross (Classic) Cross - "I know we're fighting for humanity, but this all feels so futile."

Alexa - "Hey now, that's no way for a BLADE to be thinking."

Male Cross (Warrior) Cross - "Men are like stones, smoothed by the tides of battle."

Alexa - "Wow that was deep. I should write that one down."

Female Cross (Heroic) Cross - "Another dawn to dusk work day? Sounds like fun to me!"

Alexa - "Got that right! I never give it less than a hundred p."

Female Cross (Joker) Cross - "Meh, I'm BUSHED! Did I do all the work or what?"

Alexa - "What!? Not as far as I could tell. Yeesh."

Alexa - "You got that right, we need to keep moving!"

Female Cross (Mature) Cross - "[sigh] These Miran winds are not very compatible with my hair."

Alexa - "Oh yea huh? Never really thought about it."

Female Cross (Peppy) Cross - "One small step for BLADE, one giant leap for humankind."

Alexa - "You said it. Makes me want to try twice as hard!"

Female Cross (Classic) Cross - "Is it over? I haven't even finished rolling up my sleeves."

Alexa - "Let's see what you're really made of next time, okay?"

Female Cross (Soldier) Cross - "I'm torn; do I master hand-to-hand combat, or focus on ranged attacks?"

Alexa - "I bet you'll excel at both one day. Keep at it! "

Nagi Nagi - "Alexa just so you know I pushed your skell development budget through."

Alexa - "Oh my gosh, really?! You're the best! [Laughter] I knew sending that bottle of sake would do the trick."

Irina Alexa - "The new Sakuraba is crazy fun! Wanna fire a few rounds later?"

Irina - "You'll let me try it? I've been drooling ever since I saw the ads."

Lin Alexa - "Lin, did you order a ticket to the Skell exhibition?"

Lin - "They went on sale? Oh man, I gotta get on that once we're home."

Gwin Gwin - "Hey Alexa, can you show me a few more pointers on controlling my Skell?"

Alexa - "Sure, I'll show you a trick that'll knock Irina's socks off."

H.B. Alexa - "Hey, H.B. Why do I see you doing pushups in front of Commander Vandham?"

H.B. - "Ha ha ha... I'm just showing him I have the endurance for the long haul."

Frye Frye - "Hey Alexa, when you gonna get it up over something besides Skells?"

Alexa - "Whatever. All you talk about is booze and your brother."


  • "Honestly! The only love in my life is giant robots."
  • "I never imagined I'd encounter so many incredible Skells on this world. There was that awesome Wrothian Skell, all those unique Ganglion models... Not to mention the Skells we developed here that feature Lin's flight module! And I bet there's so many more to see, too. I'm always ready to jump in my Skell and go exploring with you!"
    • (Accept) "Thanks! Now let's customize our Skells with the best possible loadouts and get those engines blazing!"
    • (Refuse) "No? Are you sure? Reeeeeeally sure? ...Yeah, okay. Guess I'll just be here working on these Skells."
