Klaus regretted what he did and states that he "longed for oblivion". However, being a god he was immortal. So instead, he decided to restore the world after bringing it to ruin.

Klaus remained concerned that the new humans would repeat the old world's mistakes and that someone like him may appear and attempt to destroy the world again.

Shulk3

The future doesn't belong to you!

For those who have not completed games in the Xenoblade Chronicles series, this page contains spoilers regarding the plot. Discretion is advised.


The Architect (Japanese: , Kami, lit. God) is a character in Xenoblade Chronicles 2. The "Divine Father", the "Architect" (Japanese: 創生の神, Sōsei no kami, lit. "God of creation") is the God who created Alrest. Pyra refers to him as "Father".

Appearance

The Architect is Human, although thousands of years old and alive only because of the Conduit. His general appearance matches that of Klaus, with long blond hair and a skeletal structure. Half of his body is missing, replaced with a black void. He has several wires connected to his chest and remnants of his clothes hang from him.

Story

According to legends, the Architect was responsible for the creation of Alrest. Humans once lived alongside the Architect in Elysium, until one day they were banished from Elysium and forced to live down on the Cloud Sea. As a last gift to humanity, the Architect sent his loyal servants, the Titans, to save humanity and give them shelter.

Five hundred years prior to the events of Xenoblade Chronicles 2, Amalthus climbs the World Tree in an attempt to meet the Architect. He finds Elysium empty, however, and leaves with only the two Aegis Core Crystals.

Throughout the game, Jin and Malos express a desire to kill the Architect, specifically for the treatment of Blades. Amalthus also grows to consider himself to be an agent of the Architect's will and expresses a desire to kill humanity in the name of the Architect. On the contrary, Rex simply desires to meet the Architect and hopefully find Elysium to save humanity from the dying Titans.

Klaus2

Klaus as a scientist

When the party reaches the First Low Orbit Station, the Architect reveals himself to be a man named Klaus who was given god-like powers thanks to the Conduit. He tells them about the true origins of Alrest and that it was originally planet Earth. He reveals that when his experiment commenced most of the planet's life forms and possessions vanished into other universes, including half of his body, which was sent into the new universe created by his experiment and became Zanza.

Klaus regretted what he did and states that he "longed for oblivion". However, being a god he was immortal. So instead, he decided to restore the world after bringing it to ruin. First he created the Cloud Sea, which had the ability to restore destroyed matter. Then, he scattered core crystals all over the Sea which bonded with the particulate reconstructors in the cloud sea and then the Titans evolved which eventually caused various new life forms to develop. Klaus remained concerned that the new humans would repeat the old world's mistakes and that someone like him may appear and attempt to destroy the world again. So he converted the three cores of the Trinity Processor into the Aegis's: Ontos, Logos (Malos) and Pneuma (Pyra/Mythra). They were designed to manage the Blades. However, Ontos vanished into a different universe and potentially became Alvis.

The Architect in his room

In the end, Klaus realized that the humans of Alrest were no different from the humans of Earth; this prompted his apathy when Amalthus arrived and took the Aegis core crystals. However, he was given a new hope upon witnessing Rex and Pyra's unique bond. He also reveals that the Conduit is the source of the Aegis's power. Sensing that his other half is soon going to die, and he with it, he sends Rex and his party to the Aion Hangar to stop Malos. As they leave, he wonders if he can face Galea again.

While Rex is fighting Malos and Artifice Aion, Shulk is heard just before he delivers a final blow to Zanza and the Architect encourages Rex to hurry. Rex and Pneuma manage to perform a deadly attack on Malos killing him just as Klaus dies and the Conduit vanishes. In his last moments, Klaus offers his last gift to Alrest by granting them a new landmass to live on and says "The rest is up to you, my children" as he fades away.
