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 [[Titan]]s, to save humanity and give them shelter.

After the disaster produced by the activation of the Conduit, Klaus, filled with guilt over his actions, took over himself to fix the world. In order to do so, he first created the [[Cloud Sea]], formed of special particulate substances that could restore matter.
   
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 Crystal]]s.
+
After that, Klaus used [[Core Crystal]]s, which contained biological information, to recreate life. When being in contact with the Cloud Sea, Core Crystals became Titans, which grew in size over time and slowly produced more life, while at the same time serving as their home. Despite this, Klaus did not trust this new cycle of life, and took advantage of the Core Crystals to create the [[Blade]]s, which would serve to supervise the development of the new humans, in hope that they would not repeat the errors of the past.
   
Throughout the game, [[Jin]] and [[Malos]] express a desire to kill the Architect, specifically for the treatment of [[Blade]]s. 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.
+
However, Klaus' hopes were shattered as the new humans proved to be the same as the previous ones. Due to this, he decided not to intervene when [[Amalthus]] arrived to the [[First Low Orbit Station]] and took the Core Crystals that would later become [[Malos]] and [[Mythra]]. Klaus thought of Amalthus as what he had once been, and wanted the world to follow its natural course.

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]].

When [[Rex]] and [[Pyra]] arrive to the First Low Orbit Station, Klaus tests them to see exactly how far humanity had come. After explaining to them the truth about their world and about himself, he tells them about [[Zanza]]'s (his other half) imminent death, warning them that the Conduit would then disappear to another dimension, and advises the party to defeat Malos before that happened.

Before leaving, Rex thanks Klaus for creating them, and asks him if his opinion on mankind had changed after meeting them. Klaus asserts, seeing the unique bond Rex and Pyra shared as hope for the future, and, as he sees the party go towards their final battle, wishes to see [[Galea]] once again.
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.

"This is my punishment... Retribution by on high, for the sin I have commited..."
– Klaus, the Architect

The Architect (Japanese: 創生の神, Sōsei no kami, lit. "God of creation") is a character in Xenoblade Chronicles 2. Often referred to by the Aegises as "father", he is the God that created Alrest. Killing the Architect is the main objective of the organization Torna.

Obtaining his powers directly from the Conduit, the Architect possesses abilities far beyond any mortal being. Some examples of his powers include being able to protect from attacks without even moving, overseeing the state of the living beings of the planet and the ability to play with people's minds, as well as comanding the Titans. The Architect is also implied to be able to seek into the future, knowing when he was going to die.

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

Klaus2

Klaus as a scientist

After the disaster produced by the activation of the Conduit, Klaus, filled with guilt over his actions, took over himself to fix the world. In order to do so, he first created the Cloud Sea, formed of special particulate substances that could restore matter.

After that, Klaus used Core Crystals, which contained biological information, to recreate life. When being in contact with the Cloud Sea, Core Crystals became Titans, which grew in size over time and slowly produced more life, while at the same time serving as their home. Despite this, Klaus did not trust this new cycle of life, and took advantage of the Core Crystals to create the Blades, which would serve to supervise the development of the new humans, in hope that they would not repeat the errors of the past.

However, Klaus' hopes were shattered as the new humans proved to be the same as the previous ones. Due to this, he decided not to intervene when Amalthus arrived to the First Low Orbit Station and took the Core Crystals that would later become Malos and Mythra. Klaus thought of Amalthus as what he had once been, and wanted the world to follow its natural course.

When Rex and Pyra arrive to the First Low Orbit Station, Klaus tests them to see exactly how far humanity had come. After explaining to them the truth about their world and about himself, he tells them about Zanza's (his other half) imminent death, warning them that the Conduit would then disappear to another dimension, and advises the party to defeat Malos before that happened.

Before leaving, Rex thanks Klaus for creating them, and asks him if his opinion on mankind had changed after meeting them. Klaus asserts, seeing the unique bond Rex and Pyra shared as hope for the future, and, as he sees the party go towards their final battle, wishes to see Galea once again.

As Zanza is killed by Shulk, Klaus begins disappearing. During the final moments of his life, he removes the Cloud Sea, and commands the Titans to form a new land, being that his final gift to the lifes he had created.
