Pyra (Japanese: ホムラ, Homura) is the heroine of Xenoblade Chronicles 2. She is a Special Blade who grants tremendous fire-elemental power to her Driver, Rex. As a Blade, she is immortal and has the ability to recover from injuries quickly; however, she will die if the Core Crystal on her chest is destroyed, or when Rex dies. Pyra and Rex embark on a journey to search for Elysium, and Rex is devoted to protecting her.
Pyra was designed by Masatsugu Saitō, the lead character designer for the game.
Pyra is also known as the Aegis, the legendary Blade with an emerald Core Crystal. She is sought by multiple people, such as Bana, the Chairman of the Argentum Trade Guild, and the organization known as Torna. As the Aegis, Pyra can transform into her alternate form, Mythra; both are incarnations of the same Aegis blade.
As revealed by the Architect, her true name is Pneuma.
