Pneuma is a legendary Blade in Xenoblade Chronicles 2. She has the power to grant tremendous power to her Driver named Rex. She and Rex embark on a journey to search for her long-lost home, Elysium. She can take the form of a Blade named Pyra (JP) or a Blade named Mythra (JP).

It is said that she is immortal and has the ability to recover from injuries quickly. However, she can die if the core on her chest is destroyed. After linking her life to Rex, she will die if he dies. She is one of the three Aegises, three legendary Blades who were granted the power to manipulate Ether and alterate reality by their creator, The Architect. She was once one of the two major forces who fought during the Aegis War, 500 years before Xenoblade Chronicles 2 and is the one who sank Torna and Malos into the Cloud Sea

  • HOMURA is a Skell Weapon in Xenoblade Chronicles X.
  • The blue-green core on her chest shares some resemblance to the Lifeholds from Xenoblade Chronicles X.
    • The core on her chest is shared between Mythra and Pyra.
    • This shares some resemblance to the Zohar from Xenogears and Xenosaga.
  • The word Pyra comes from the Ancient Greek, which stands for "flame colored" or "red fire". Her Japanese name, Homura means "flame".
  • Mythra's Japanese name, Hikari, means "light", also Mythra comes from an Zoroastrian Deity of, among other things, light, called "Mithra". 
  • Aegis in Greek mythology means "shield" and is likely based off the shield of the same name used by Greek figures, Pallas Athena and Zeus.
