Malos (メツ) is a primary antagonist of Xenoblade Chronicles 2, and Torna ~ The Golden Country. He is the second in command in the organization Torna. He joins Rex's team only once as a guest character.

Appearance and personality[edit]

Malos is a tall man with black spiky hair and grey eyes. Designed by Tetsuya Nomura, he wears edgy black armour with gold and silver accents. He has the signature Aegis Core Crystal on his back, although in the main game of Xenoblade Chronicles 2, it has been partly shattered due to the events of Torna: The Golden Country. Malos wants nothing more than to see the world burn, believing that it is the sole reason that the Architect created him and the other Aegises. In reality, the reason he thinks this is because of the influence that the initial driver has on the awakened blade: Amalthus' hatred of the world was reflected in Malos through the power to destroy it. Although in Torna: The Golden Country and the early parts of the main game, Malos has not realized this, later on he becomes aware of it. This causes him to develop an intense hatred of himself, which erupts in the cutscene before the final boss, where he calls himself a "hideous monster, far beyond saving". Despite knowing this, Malos is unable to change his nature and, using Jin's life as his main motivation for hating the world, he chooses to fight the party anyways, ultimately ending in his demise.

Story arc[edit]

Malos first appears as part of the elite salvaging crew hired by Bana. He attacks Rex to test his worth and is satisfied. However, upon finding the treasure in the Ancient Ship - the Aegis - he yells at Rex to not touch it, which of course he does. Malos watches Jin kill Rex as a result and moans about the waste. As he carries the sealed Pyra out of the ship, he orders Nia to kill all the other salvagers so none would know about the Aegis, but Pyra escapes and the revived Rex reappears. The two fight off Malos and his blade Sever, and Malos remarks he should've expected this if he'd paid better attention to Rex's eyes. The fight continues, only saved by Nia's turnabout and Azurda's appearance, and Malos reluctantly lets Jin decide to call on Akhos.
