"If such a place did exist, maybe we could all live in peace, without the need to fight."
— Rex, about Elysium

Rex (Japanese: レックス, Rekkusu) is the main protagonist of Xenoblade Chronicles 2. He is a Driver who harnesses the power of a Blade named Pyra. She is also known as the legendary sword Aegis for which Rex is devoted to protect it. Together with Pyra, he goes on a quest to find her long-lost home, Elysium. Due to the Aegis' duality, Rex can drive the other incarnation of the weapon, the Blade Mythra.

Rex was designed by Masatsugu Saitō, the lead character designer for the game.


Rex was around two years old when he and his mother washed up on the shores of Fonsett Village. His mother died upon arrival and his father's body was found in the Leftherian Archipelago nearby; they were both buried in Oratory Knoll Cemetery. Rex grew up in Fonsett, living with Corinne.


Rex and Azurda

Rex lives on the back of Azurda, a small Titan, whom he calls "Gramps" and can be transformed into a small companion often standing inside his helmet. They travel through the sea of clouds overrunning the world of Alrest. Rex is a dynamic and vivid boy who earned his living by performing retrieve and rescue missions as a Salvager (サルベージャー, Sarubējā). His outfit allows to protect himself while saving people who get lost in the Cloud Sea, and while scavenging useful resources from beneath. One day, Rex meets the Blade Pyra and becomes a Driver, which allows him to forge links with other Blades.


※ Rex does not gain access to Rolling Smash until after the Broadsword is replaced with the Aegis Sword
