Xelha is a major character in Baten Kaitos: Eternal Wings and the Lost Ocean, the main female protagonist, and the story's protagonist for a short time during the game.


Xelha is actually the Ice Queen, of the royal lineage of Wazn, the rumored Ice Kingdom, which floats on the cold edge of the world. The royal line has the ocean sealed inside them, protecting it, but are destined to have to sacrifice themselves when the earth will be regained, to return it. This fate is one which Xelha seems to accept, but wrestles with nonetheless.

The Dream

The witches of Wazn had sensed the disturbances as two major occurrences towards Malpercio's resurrection were taking place: the resurrection of Melodia and her alliance with Kalas a few years afterward. At the former they sent out three witches to investigate. At the latter, Xelha herself was haunted by a dream that made her lose all her magic power and motivated her to set out herself, in line with what she promised her late mother. The head witch suspected the dream to have been most terrifying, but in reality it had been a dream of Kalas, covered by a veil of darkness, clutching his little brother. Xelha's sympathy for this young man is what drove her to set out on a journey.

The Servant Girl

Xelha escaping Imperial troops.

She infiltrated the empire, and found out about its plans of releasing the End Magnus to lay its hands on the power of Malpercio. To counter this, she stole a pendant which appeared to be important to the empire's plans (In truth it was the Earth Sphere), and went to Sadal Suud to find out more, where she encountered the boy from her dream, bearing witness as Melodia put a spell on him to erase his spirit's memory. She realized that Kalas was somehow involved in a dark plot, and wanted to support him and help him escape from what he had gotten involved in. And so, mostly by Xelha's efforts, the two of them come to travel together, making friends along the way.

Xelha, Meemai and an End Magnus

However, despite her best efforts to bond with Kalas, he betrays them, leaving Xelha devastated. But the fact that his former spirit is willing and capable of contacting with her makes her realize that, as she suspected, she and Kalas are in many ways the same, and that manages to cheer her up a bit. Eventually Kalas redeems himself, and the two of them come to be traveling together again, with their shared experience as spirit guides deepening their relationship. But during their travels, time and time again, Xelha finds herself faced with her own fate. That even should they win and live through the ordeal, she will likely have to sacrifice herself in the end.


When the final battle's won and the race of man has reclaimed the earth, she finds herself with Kalas, the both of them coming into grips with their relationship and her fate. Despite not really wanting to, Xelha manages to convince Kalas of the necessity of her sacrifice, and together with the spirit that binds them, they unseal the ocean. But they are faced with the physical manifestation of Geldoblame, whose surviving spirit fuses with the earth itself and violently attempts to prevent Xelha's sacrifice for one last chance at revenge and domination of the world. By working together, the three overpower Geldoblame and destroy him forever. Xelha then dies from a combination of wounds sustained from the battle and the strain of the ocean's weakening seal, her body disintegrating on site. Heavy salty rain pours down on the world and the Earth is returned to its former state.

Kalas promises to keep her in his heart forever. However, at the end, Xelha was resurrected by the whale, one of the ancient gods that had secretly been living amongst man in the shape of a race of creatures called Greythornes. This is out of thanks for her efforts, without which Malpercio would undoubtedly have triumphed.


Xelha using Magic

Xelha can use attack magic from all six elements: Fire Burst, Aqua Burst, Light Flare, Dark Flare, Chronos Blow, and Wind Blow. In turn, each of these spells has six levels of power. Xelha can also use neutral attack magnus that all characters can use, such as the Small Knife and the Bamboo Stick. Xelha has very high Agility and since she can use any element, it is very easy for her to strike an enemy's weakness. However, her HP is not as high as most of the other heroes.

  • Xelha's name translates to "a spring of water" in Yukatek Mayan, in possible reference to her purpose as the source and keeper of the Ocean.
  • Her character may be partly inspired by the Hans Christian Andersen tale, "The Snow Queen," which, aside from the titular character, also involved a mythical ice palace to the north that could only be found in the raging blizzard that surrounded it through holy magic and prayer. Likewise, the story also involves a magic mirror, though, like the Queen herself, it is of a more malicious nature than Baten Kaitos's counterpart.
