Lifeholds are pods from the White Whale in Xenoblade Chronicles X. They contain cryogenically frozen humans sleeping in them. They also preserve the knowledge of mankind. The lifehold broke apart into pods which were scattered across Mira when the White Whale from Earth crash landed onto the planet’s surface. The private military organization BLADE is tasked to find these pods to bring the humans back to safety in New Los Angeles.
