"I'm not about to let anybody mess up Filgaia any more. I won't hold back against anyone who tries!"
A mysterious young woman of unknown origin, Xantia was found unconscious in the middle of the Great Aveh Desert, remembering nothing but her name. Possessing superhuman strength, an insatiable appetite, powerful and atypical Ether manipulation techniques, and an ARM capable of producing an energy blade, she stands out as somewhat of an anomaly, yet even now, not a single soul seems to know anything about her past. However, piecing together the fragments of memory she's managed to regain over time, she has become convinced that one thing has always been true: above all else, she wants to keep Filgaia and its people safe from harm. Though optimistic to a fault, and appearing innocently blithe most of the time, deep down she worries quite a bit about losing control of herself and hurting her friends. For their sake, and her own, she considers it essential to uncover the full truth about her past self.
Xantia has no memories from before late 2016, when she woke up in the Baskar Colony of the Badlands, nursed back to health after being found passed out in the middle of nowhere out in the desert. After her recovery, she travelled to the Adlehyde/Lacour regions of Ignas in search of clues to her identity, making as many friends as she could along the way, thinking that surely someone, somewhere would have to know something about her.
This has proved to be a tougher matter than she'd hoped. Even after the considerable amount of exposure she gained from her participation in the Lacour Tournament of Arms, she still hasn't encountered a single soul able to tell her any concrete facts about her past. She has, however, rediscovered a great variety of things she's able to do, mostly in the area of combat, even if she is still no closer to figuring out how she learned to do any of them.
One of her more notable discoveries along the way was the true nature of her bracer: a damaged ARM that has since been repaired, seemingly of recent make despite containing technology beyond what's commonly found in Filgaia. Unfortunately, pursuing this lead has so far left her with more questions than answers.
Feeling strongly drawn towards fellow amnesiac Fei Fong Wong, whose circumstances and abilities share many similarities with her own, she became convinced that their pasts are somehow related, joining the Yggdrasil Alliance almost solely based on that gut feeling.
Shreds of memories and dreams involving someone who may be her father only intensified her desire to discover the truth about herself. Retracing her steps back to the Badlands, where her memories began, she reunited with the elderly couple who took care of her in the Baskar Colony. With the information they provided, she organized an expedition to try and find the exact location where she was found, in hopes this would help her remember something. The expedition had to be aborted, however, when she inexplicably passed out along the way, perhaps mirroring what happened to her originally. Fortunately, her memory seemed fine, this time.
Through multiple encounters with Id, and further information provided by Elhaym van Houten, it's become clear to her that she must have something to do with Shevat, feeling as if she may have been running from them. Though for what reason, she can only guess.
Being unexpectedly transported to Lunar put a hold on her search, convinced as she is by now that any clues to her identity would be found on Filgaia. Exciting opportunities for the future abound nonetheless, as she impulsively decided to start training to become a hero under Metal Digger Locus as Mystery Hero X, and joined the Black Wolves to aid her friends in whatever ways she can.
Powers and Abilities
Superhuman strength: Despite what her physique would suggest, Xantia's physical strength isn't just high, it's blatantly Not Normal. Thankfully she knows how to hold back, so a hug wouldn't crush your spine. ...probably.
Martial arts: Xantia fights with her bare hands and feet, employing a heavily improvised variant of the Shevat Open-Handed Style. Or so she's been told, it's not like she can remember learning how to do the things she does.
Ether manipulation: Xantia has learned that the source of most of her powers is something called 'Ether', though she doesn't employ it like the typical Ether-user, tending towards affecting things from within. She most commonly uses this to alter the properties of her own body, giving her abilities such as explosively-charged punches, rapid healing, and an aura of lightning.
ARM Blade: Though she has no idea where it came from or why she has it, Xantia's bracer is actually a technologically advanced ARM, capable of projecting an energy blade of variable size and intensity.
Megaton Hammer: Too heavy to be practical in combat, even for Xantia, but certainly good for smashing unmoving targets!
Medium of Noua Shax: Xantia's lightning affinity is further cemented by the Guardian of Lightning lending her his power. She can supercharge her own electric powers by calling on her Medium.
Bottomless stomach: Xantia can and will eat all the things. All the things.
Hollow Gear Silvestris
A quadruped prototype Gear with a skeletal and vaguely cat-like appearance, stolen from a wrecked Aveh landship, originally intended for use by Gebler. Excavated in a heavily damaged state, most of its shell's original design and what remains intact of its original internals stem from the Metal Demon War, the rest replaced by Solarian tech. Its main purpose was intended to be a 'Gear predator' of sorts, chasing down damaged or fleeing Gears and rapidly disabling them for capture. As such, its speed is exceptional, capable of out-pacing most ground-bound bipedal Gears.
Aside from its claws and teeth, it has several built-in energy weapons, and is capable of draining energy from other Gears to extend its operation time, power its weapon systems, perform limited emergency self-repair, or transfer power to allies. Its armor, however, leaves something to be desired, making it more suitable for opportunistic strikes than 'fair' combat.

Grandpa and Grandma
"The first two people I remember seeing. I'm very grateful to them for taking care of me when I needed it most!"
Jolen Crann (NPC) - "Grandpa is a Baskar shaman, very tall and very strong! He found me in the desert while on a pilgrimage and carried me all the way back to the Colony. I owe him my life... but I can't be what he'd like me to be. Sorry grandpa, I know how sad that makes you..."
Martha Crann (NPC) - "Grandma was saved from the desert by grandpa too! She likes to give people a hard time, but she doesn't mean anything bad by it. I can't even imagine what it must be like to be unable to walk, and yet she's always smiling... I really admire that."
"Amnesia is more common than I thought... I've met a lot of other people who've lost their memory as well! I'd like to help them recover their memories too, if I can."
Avril Vent Fleur - "She woke up in a Golem's hand? That's a lot weirder than me, I just woke up in a bed! I wonder if she's found anything out about herself yet..."
Ethius Hesiod - "He's always acting so strangely. I do think he means well, but I can't tell what he's thinking. I wonder if people think that about me, too..."
Fei Fong Wong - "Fei is the best! I feel like we've known each other forever! Our pasts must be related somehow, I just know it! Hope I'm not bothering him by following him everywhere. I just get really nervous when I haven't seen him for a while..."
Rudy Roughnight - "He says he's okay with his amnesia, but I don't know... whenever I see him, he seems really sad to me. I wish I could help him somehow..."
"It's true that I only joined the Alliance and the Black Wolves because it was the easiest way to stay close to Fei and others I care about... but I really do want to help them out however I can!"
Bart Fatima - "Captain Bart is great! He lets me stay on his ship and have lots of tasty food, and he actually agrees with me a lot when I say we should go punch something!"
Carina Wynne - "Not actually part of either group, but I'm still counting Carina because I'm her sidekick! I mean Metal Digger Locus's sidekick! She's really good at the whole hero thing, I'm sure I'll learn a lot from her!"
Elhaym van Houten - "I owe her a lot for telling me about my ARM, and about Shevat, that could be really important. I just wish I could do something for her, too. She always looks so worried..."
Josephine Lovelace - "As long as it's not too complicated, I'd be glad to help you with finding those tile things!"
Jude Moshe - "I don't always understand what he's talking about, even when he explains it, but I know he means well. He's helped me plenty when I needed it most!"
Leon Albus - "I'm not sure I understood what a 'leader' is before I met Leon. He just... feels like a leader! I'm very grateful he let me stay with the Wolves, I won't let him down!"
Lily Keil - "Lily... you're such a good friend, but terrible things are always happening to you. I'm really worried... Even with this power I have, I can't always help you. And those patterns... I need to hurry and remember, for your sake too."
Lunata Croze - "The Death Waitress! I'm a big fan! I really, really want to fight her sometime, but whenever I see her she's either already fighting someone else, or I get distracted by the food she brings..."
Noeline - "It's strange, we haven't talked that much, but I feel like I have something to be very thankful to her for. It's really bugging me, I wasn't supposed to forget anything ever again!"
Riesenlied - "You were never one of the bad guys, I know that now. Doing what you did must have been really hard, I don't think I could do something like that. If punching something will help you, just let me know!"
Shalune Amira - "Feels like she's always running around fixing something. I guess we're kind of opposites - I'm usually breaking something, that's a whole lot easier!"
"I've been told not to call people friends so quickly, but I don't know why... making friends is the best, why wouldn't you want to have as many as possible?"
Dean Stark - "Dean and I think alike a lot! I'm glad there's people like him around, it makes me feel less weird. Or maybe we're both weird, but that's better than being weird by yourself!"
Gwen Whitlock - "It's funny how she keeps saying she didn't do much, but she totally did! I never would've figured out how to use my ARM without her!"
Jacqueline Barber - "Jay always seems to know just what to say and how to help, no matter what's going on. She and her potions are very reassuring to have around!"
Jean - "I hurt Jean so badly, and she was still so nice to me... I don't care what she may have done in the past, or how scary her powers are, she's absolutely a good person now."
Lydia Seren - "I'm glad I was able to help you, but... I wish I understood you better. If I ever get the chance, I'll definitely stop the people trying to control you."
Rosaline Calice - "I told you I'd never give up on being friends! Not after everything you've done to help me. I never would've gotten this far if it wasn't for you."
Seraph Ragnell - "Thanks to you, I can finally see Seraphs! Sort of. Not sure if I really have the hang of it. But I'm really thankful!"
Seraphita - "The hero who inspired me to want to be a hero! I feel bad we had to fight, I hope I get the chance to make up for that one day..."
"Bad guys who make people suffer deserve whatever they get. I'll fight you anytime!"
Grahf - "His moves are like mine, except so much stronger... I don't know if I can defeat him, but I'll never let him take Fei away!"
K.K. - "I don't even care anymore what you're trying to do. Whatever it is, I can't let you keep doing it!"
Siegfried - "I kind of feel like I'm missing something important, but I can't let that distract me. If you threaten Filgaia, I'll stop you no matter what!"
Yarobeleedt - "Ugly slug monster who was spying on us, attacked innocent people, and tried to steal my food! I'd be glad to punch him some more!"
"I don't normally have much trouble making up my mind about people, but there is one exception..."
Id - "The Demon of Elru. A killer, a destroyer, completely ruthless... the worst kind of bad guy there is. ...Why do I feel sorry for someone like you? And why... do I always look forward to seeing you again? Fighting you always feels meaningful somehow, but more than anything... I want to be your friend. I can't explain it. It doesn't make any sense. There must be something wrong with me..."
