Aegaeon is a Blade in Xenoblade Chronicles 2 and its story DLC, Torna ~ The Golden Country. He is a water Blade that can grant tremendous power to his Drivers, Mòrag Ladair. Aegaeon is a very particular Blade as he seem to be a treasure passed down from a member of the imperial family of Mor Ardain to another in a very similar manner to Brighid. He was once the Blade of emperor Hugo Ardanach during the Aegis War and fought alongside Addam Origo the legendary hero of the Kingdom of Torna until Hugo sacrificed himself to save Addam, which caused Aegaeon to return to his Core Crystal. During the main story, he is the Blade of emperor Niall Ardanach until he is killed by Bana and despite being resurected by Nia, Aegaeon already returned in his Core Crystal and was awakened by Mòrag Ladair, the Special Inquisitor of the Empire of Mor Ardain and the emperor's cousin. He then feel really guilty to have failed to protect the emperor and try to find redemption.
