Appearance and personality
Newt is a young looking, muscular female with grayish-green skin, red eyes with oval-framed glasses, a military-style hat with a large eye on the back side, black thigh-high boots that emanate flames from the top, a green military jacket that only covers her arms and shoulders, and underwear resembling a bikini that covers a minor amount of her torso, breasts and crotch. Newt also posesses two floating, gloved, massive muscular arms that have flames bursting from the shoulders. The arms are often used to wield a flaming katana and provide a makeshift bench for Newt to sit on. The core crystal located on her chest is blue and round.
Newt is often depicted as energetic and excitable, always laser-focused on her task. She posesses a fierce loyalty to her driver, vowing to protect them and see to their comfort and safety at all cost, to the point of neglecting her own desires. Still, she has a positive and friendly attitude towards other blades and drivers, particularly after they prove themselves as strong allies. Aggressive and militarisitic by nature, Newt is always ready and willing to fight, especially the enemies of her driver where she does not have to hold back. She also has an obsession over the Titan weapons, having an encyclopedic knowledge of them and the how they work. Her favorite titan weapon is Mor Ardain, due to it being a military state that she also has an interest in.
Newt has no bearing on the main campaign of Xenoblade Chronicles 2. She does have a special blade quest titled Newt Recruits. While at the Torigoth Relay Base at Gormott Province, Newt challenges all Ardainian soldiers in the area to a fight. She quickly defeats all of them, but destroys a Titan weapon in the process. As punishment, she is forced to salvage for parts to rebuild the weapon. While repairing the weapon, a Ship-Eating Taos ambushes the sight, and Newt is forced to fend it off so it cannot cause further damage. While sending a progress report to the palace, she is ambushed by a group of assassains that are after emperor Niall Ardanach. Newt fights them off too, gaining Niall's respect in the process.
Newt also possesses a Heart-to-Heart titled Mad About Titan Weapons. While at Hardhaigh Palace, Newt and her driver come across a Titan Battleship, which greatly excites her and causes her to rattle off information about the battleship and triva about Titan weapons in general. Her driver is not particularly interested in what she is saying, but lets her continue anyway while acting confused.
