A boy who was born and raised on a small group of islands. |
Riku dreamt of seeing other worlds, and so he forsook the islands---only to be seduced by the power of darkness.
Enslaved by Ansem, pursuer of darkness, Riku clashed with his childhood friend Sora. But in the end he was able to regain himself, and together with Sora closed the door to darkness.
Still, the dark wounds in Riku's heart have yet to mend.
The king who reigns over Disney Castle. |
He set off alone to protect his world and all worlds from the dominion of the dark.
When Riku fell into the realm of darkness, the king showed him the way, but the two were seperated when the door to darkness was closed.
Riku's boyhood friend, and the hero of light chosen by the Keyblade to stand against the darkness. |
Riku fought Sora while bridled by darkness, but their friendship proved stronger, and they ultimately worked together to close the door to darkness.
Riku and Sora's friend growing up. |
Kairi vanished when their home islands were devoured by darkness. Riku and Sora both journeyed to find her.
Kairi was held captive by the Heartless, but thanks to Sora she and the islands were saved.
She waits there for Sora and Riku's return.
A young witch who can manipulate memories. |
Under orders from the Organization, Namin? shadowed Kairi and altered Sora's memory. But the forgiveness in Sora's heart moved her to disobey those orders.
Now she watches over Sora until the reconstruction of his memories is complete.
A replica of Riku created by Vexen from the real Riku's data. |
Unlike the real Riku, he wields darkness freely, but is burdened by the fact that he is an imitation.
Pursuer of darkness. |
To open the door to darkness, Ansem used the Heartless to steal countless hearts.
He enslaved Riku, but met his demise at Sora's hands.
Nonetheless, Ansem's shadow lives on in the depths of Riku's heart.
No. 4 in the Organization. |
He, Lexaeus, and Zexion have been in the group since its inception, and there is no love lost between them and neophytes like Marluxia.
After battling Riku, Vexen turns to events unfolding aboveground, but successive failures lead to his termination by Axel.
No. 5 in the Organization. |
A born warrior, Lexaeus effortlessly brandishes a gigantic tomahawk.
To counterbalance his rival Marluxia's bid for Sora's power, Lexaeus tried to conquer Riku.
He failed, but with his dying strength dragged Riku into the realm of darkness.
No. 6 in the Organization. |
Zexion generally avoids dirtying his own hands when there are deeds to be done. However, with the destruction of Vexen and Lexaeus, he was forced into action.
Zexion confronted Riku disguised as Sora. But Riku no longer feared the dark, and victory was beyond Zexion's reach.
No. 8 in the Organization. |
He is a shadow whose intentions and secrets are hidden from all.
Axel has no qualms about exploiting others to suit his needs. He used Sora and Namin? to silence Marluxia and halt his plot against the Organization.
Axel claims he and Sora have something in common, but that connection is unclear.
No. 11 in the Organization. |
Marluxia lured Sora to Castle Oblivion in hopes of using his power to seize the Organization.
He ordered Namin? to alter Sora's memories, and fooled Vexen into challenging him. All was going according to plan, but Marluxia's scheme dissolved when Axel set Namin? free.
Marluxia was ultimately destroyed by Sora.
No. 12 in the Organization. |
Larxene conspired with Marluxia to take over the group, and intended to pull Axel in as well.
However, her abrasive, unfeeling personality proved her downfall---provoking Sora's anger was a fatal error.
Truly an enigma. |
DiZ appeared before Riku in the guise of Ansem, presenting him with choices regarding the darkness within his heart.
It is said he and the king have met.
