Theory is a Rare Blade in Xenoblade Chronicles 2. She can grant tremendous power to her Drivers, Rex, Nia, Zeke, or Mòrag, and their allies. Theory uses the ice element, wields a Chroma Katana, and acts as a Tank in battle. She moves as a skater on ice with an elegance reminiscent of a fairy, similar to Praxis, a female Blade with whom Theory shares a bond.
