[[caption-width-right:250: Welch in Star Ocean: Anamnesis -Twin Eclipse-]]

A young girl with a peculiar sense of style who always carries around a big pointer. A self-designated creator, she claims that she builds various useful items, but the details are unknown. She semi-forcefully decides to join Claude and the others on their venture.
----
* TheBlacksmith: In some games, she appears as a [=NPC=] responsible for ItemCrafting.
* BrainyBrunette: In ''Till the End of Time'', as a member of Peterny's Craftsman's Guild, Welch is very knowledgeable about her trade and tells you how to get started. She even fronts you 1,000 Fol in seed money, to help you open your first workshop. From then on, she'll update you on various items and inventions that have gone on sale and alerts you to when craftsmen are available for recruiting.
* BunnyEarsLawyer: In ''The Last Hope'', Welch slacks off, performs cosplay while on duty and pulls pranks but she is still a good support operative and efficient synthesis aid.
* CrashIntoHello: In ''Second Evolution''. Notable in that she ''falls from the sky'' and on top of Claude/Rena...
* CrutchCharacter: In ''Second Evolution''. Depending on your party makeup, Lv.30 Welch can be recruited while your main team is only half that level. Sure, they catch up to her, but...
* EroticDream: There is a skit in ''Till the End of Time'' where she's asleep at her desk. During which, she's apparently dreaming of having a make-out session, since she can be heard making kissing sounds in between playfully telling whoever she's with to stop. Followed by, "not here".
* GenkiGirl: She's always cheerful and upbeat.
* GirlishPigtails: Her usual hairstyle. Subverted in ''The Last Hope'', in which she has purple hair tied by a single ribbon.
* ImprobableWeaponUser: Sticks with a pointing hand at the end.
* LittleMissBadass: Welch certainly qualifies.
* {{Meganekko}}: Wear glasses in the fourth game.
* MysteriousPast: Her origin is unknown, but she is implied to be a [[spoiler:4D being]]. In ''Till the End of Time'', this would explain how she has a compact communicator, which is far too advanced for Elicoor II's level of technology. It'd also explain the similarity between the way she dresses and Blair's attire. And it could be the reason she's always the same age in each game, since [[spoiler:The Eternal Sphere is a virtual reality MMORPG.]]
* NiceGal: Very friendly. In ''The Last Hope'', she continues to help the crew after [[spoiler:they are abandoned by the USTA.]]
* OptionalPartyMember: She can be recruited in the UpdatedReRelease version of the first and second games.
* {{Otaku}}: In ''Second Evolution'', you can go to a "fanfic" (doujinshi) sale in Fun City. In one Private Action, Welch will drag Claude there forcibly. And she is very...ahem...familiar with the various genres.
* PluckyComicRelief: She provides a good portion of the fourth game humor.
* PromotedToPlayable: Welch appears as a playable character in ''First Departure'', ''Second Evolution'' and ''Anamnesis''.
* RecurringCharacter: Welch appears in every Star Ocean game.
* ARiddleWrappedInAMysteryInsideAnEnigma: Puffy and Ruddle Crispin are the only other characters to appear in every game, but like everything else concerning Welch's background, what it could mean and whether there's any connection remains unknown.
* ScrewySquirrel: In ''4'', she enjoys trolling the crew of the Calnus.
* ShipperOnDeck: In ''4'', Welch ships Edge and Reimi. She also shows great interest in Faize and Lymle after they accidentally kiss.
* SignificantBirthDate: According to ''Anamnesis'', her birthday is on AprilFoolsDay.
* {{Tomboy}}: The game's dictionary feature defines her as "a beautiful, if tomboyish, young operator who provides external support for the Calnus from the USTA's Earth headquarters."
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Welch has purple hair in the fourth game. However, since she only appears via hologram, no one actually knows if the image they see is what she really looks like.
* VoiceWithAnInternetConnection: In ''The Last Hope'', Welch speaks to the crew through a holographic projector, but she serves the same purpose.
