Welcome to the Rex support thread.
Rex is the main protagonist of Xenoblade Chronicles 2. Similar to the first Xenoblade, in Xenoblade 2 humans live atop giant titans. Existing alongside humans are powerful creatures called Blades. Blades take on many forms, and wield many different weapons. Blades have much longer lifespans than humans, but as a price, they are trapped inside Core Crystals until a Driver awakens them. Drivers are rare people whom are strong enough to harness a Blade's power. Those whom are not strong enough to bond with Blades often get sick when they touch a Core Crystal--or worse. If a Blade's Driver dies, he/she/it will return to its Core Crystal, and all of its memories will be erased. Rinse and repeat. Rex is one of the few Drivers whom can utilise a Blade. The first Blade Rex meets is a red-haired woman named Pyra. If you've played Zelda: Skyward Sword, think of it this way: Pyra is to Rex is as Fi is to Link.
