If anyone is familiar with Cerebus the Aardvark, an entry talking about the depiction of the accents of Princes Mick and Keef and the Starkey brothers needs to be here.

At the time of writing, the Xenoblade Chronicles entry includes the following: "Notably, most of them speak with working-class accents (especially Reyn), whereas the standard 'received pronunciation' does not appear to exist."

I don't think this is accurate. To my (British) ears, Shulk and Sharla are both on the RP end of the London-RP continuum; Dunban has the RP accent typical of a military officer; and Melia's is cut-glass upper-class RP, as lampshaded by Reyn and Sharla during a discussion.
