"A land of plenty, atop the World Tree... If such a place did exist, perhaps we could all live in peace. With no need for fighting."
— Azurda

Azurda (Japanese: セイリュウ, Seiryū) is a Titan in Xenoblade Chronicles 2 and Xenoblade Chronicles 2: Torna ~ The Golden Country. Azurda is a small Titan, and takes the appearance of a flying blue dragon. Rex lives on his back and call him Gramps (Japanese: じっちゃん, Jitchan, Grandpa). Azurda serves as Rex's guardian, as well as his home. They travel together through the Cloud Sea. After sustaining near-fatal injuries from an encounter with Jin and Malos, Azurda manages to survive, but in the process is reverted to a larval state, a tiny white dragon with a blue crystal in his chest. In this form, Azurda travels as Rex's companion, usually traveling inside his helmet. During the battle, he is reliable and, though sometimes loud, will give Rex various pieces of advice; specifically, he will notify if an enemy changes their element.

Story

Azurda is one of countless Titans who were birthed originally as Blades from Torna's Womb and was born approximately 800 years prior to the Aegis War. Little is known of his time prior to the war, except that he was good friends with Jin and Ornelia, Jin's last Driver before Lora. During the Aegis War, Azurda helps Addam, Lora, Hugo, and their Blades repel Malos's assault on Auresco. After the war, when Addam had finished his travels, he came to Fonsett Village, then called Hero's Rest, and tasked Azurda with protecting not only the village, but the third Aegis blade that Addam had sealed away there.

After Rex's parents passed away, Rex grew up under Corinne's house and eventually became a salvager. He set off in the salvaging business while living on Azurda, who he refers to as Gramps. At the beginning of the game, Rex and Azurda see another Titan sink beneath the Cloud Sea, and Azurda mentions that he too will suffer a similar fate eventually.

When Rex accepts the offer with a large sum of money, Azurda scolds him on accepting a job he has no idea about, though Rex still helps bring up the Ancient Ship nonetheless. Azurda eventually helps Rex, Pyra, Nia, and Dromarch escape from Jin and Malos, though he is hit multiple times by the Monoceros. He crash lands on Gormott and is forced to revert to his larval stage to continue living. He talks to Pyra that same night, and Pyra promises to take care of Rex.

After King Eulogimenos reveals that a third Aegis Sword exists, Azurda states that he knows its location and reveals himself to be the guardian of Fonsett Village. He then opens the pathway into Spirit Crucible Elpys, the location of the third Aegis Sword.

When the World Tree begins collapsing, Pneuma steps aside and talks with both Poppi and Azurda. Pneuma touches Azurda's Core Crystal while Azurda calls Pneuma "a real piece of work." It is later revealed that Pneuma allowed Azurda to transform back into his adult Titan form so that the rest of the party could survive the trip back to Alrest. Azurda then takes the party to the new landmass revealed to them by the Architect.
