Nia (Japanese: ニア, Niyah) is a main playable character in Xenoblade Chronicles 2. She is a Gormotti Driver and is accompanied by her special Blade, Dromarch, who calls her "Lady" (お嬢様, Ojōsama) like a butler. She comes from 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 faster on the field.
Nia was raised by her father, a wealthy lord in the Gormott Province, and had a sister who was very frail and sickly. She studied to be a lady, until her father spent all their money in search for a cure for her sister, and lost his status as a lord. The family became drifters, and the harsher lifestyle took a toll on Nia's sister, who died not long afterwards.
Soon after the death of her sister, her father passed away as well, and Nia found his Core Crystal, with which she resonated, bonding her with Dromarch. The two began wandering around Alrest, fleeing the Indoline Praetorium, until they were captured. They were freed by Jin, leading her to join him and the rest of Torna until she met Rex.
After the incident on Temperantia, the Empire of Mor Ardain and the Kingdom of Uraya have a summit where Bana attempts to kill everyone present with an explosive device. Emperor Niall nearly sacrifices himself to save the others, but Nia is able to revive him after asking Dromarch to distract the rest of the party so they would not see her powers.Nia finally reveals herself as a Blade in the Vault of Heroes in the Spirit Crucible Elpys, when the party is overwhelmed by Phantasms. She thanks Rex for helping her see that she should not be afraid of who she is, and proclaims that she is free of her past, and of Jin. Together, they fight the Phantasms until the voice of Addam himself tells them that Rex is the one who he has been waiting for to wield the true Aegis.
