= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

Hello everyone, and welcome to my very first FAQ!  Long have I waited
for a chance to truly explain a game in great detail at the courtesy
and plight of other gamers such as myself, but have - due to my extreme
laziness - never actually got around to making one.  Until now, that
is! ;)

Many gamers seem to forget what exactly happens during a game, and
often, those that have not played the game may wonder what exactly
occurs story-wise.  This FAQ has been based around Jiminy Cricket's
journal, which covers in great detail every miniscule and major aspect
of the game.  I hope that anyone who wishes to learn of this game and
go over Jiminy's journal will find this FAQ useful, for in essence this
FAQ is a compilation of multiple FAQs, such as a story, card, and
character FAQ.  Note that I will be glad to hear any feedback, whether
positive or negative, so feel free to email me at
mr_guy_123@hotmail.com.

Alas, without further ado, here is my very first FAQ; Jiminy Cricket's 
journal!

= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =
>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>  ~  II. The Journal  ~  <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

The journal, as stated in my introduction, extensively covers each
portion of the game in great detail.  It revises everything that
appears or occurs throughout game; from the characters, to the cards,
to the enemies.  As you progress through the game, you will note that
more and more is recorded in the journal.  In order for you to fully
complete your journal, then, you must beat the entire game.  Many of
you probably remember Jiminy's journal in the first Kingdom Hearts and
may have found it useful if biographies, information, or references
were in regards to the game.  The same premise revolves around his
journal this time around, as many may use it as a reference to find
exactly the information they need.  The journal proves useful in any
scenario, just as it had in the very first game for the Playstation 2.
Considering Jiminy's journal is so large, as - literally - the whole
story of the game is written inside of it, it has been split up into
multiple sections.  It begins with telling the game's story, moving on
to the card index, and finally ending with a summary of the characters.  
Each of these topics have subtopics, and by the end of the journal all
shall be covered.

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>  ~  III. Story Journals  ~  <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

These are the journals recorded due to the progression of the story.
If you do not want the story spoiled for you, I suggest reading no 
further.

The stories are separated by levels - or floors, in this case - with
some back-story to top everything off.  Here are the story journal
entries, in the order they appear in the journal:

i. Sora's Story I
------------------
Our friends may be here...

It was that thought that led us to Castle Oblivion, where cards rule
over all.

A mysterious man gave Sora a card, and using it took us to Traverse
Town - of all places!  It turned out the town was just a figment of our
own remembrances, the first world of many that lie in Sora's heart.

And so our journey through these worlds begins.


ii. Sora's Tale II
-------------------
It seems we're slowly losing our memories of what happened before the
castle.  And all my notes about the last journey have vanished!

But in exchange, Sora is remembering other things he must have
forgotten until now - like a girl he knew when he was little.

While fighting Larxene, Sora finally remembered the girl's name...

Namine...


iii. Sora's Tale III
---------------------
Sora pressed on in his search for Namine, and can you believe it?  He
found Riku, his best friend whom we thought was lost.

Sora was so happy, but Riku attacked him just like that, saying "I'll
protect Namine!"

What could he mean?  Will something happens if Sora finds Namine?

Sora is chasing after Riku...and the answers.


iv. Sora's Tale IV
-------------------
So Sora's memories of Namine were false...

Malruxia wanted Sora's heart and the strength within, so he used Namine
to create fake memories and place them in Sora's heart.  Larxene is
gone, so we're going to the top floor to finish Malruxia.  We want
our memories back.

And Sora - he wants to keep the promise he remembers.  Namin, may not
be his friend, but in his heart, protecting her is the only choice.


v. Traverse Town
-----------------
The card the hooded man gave us took us to Traverse Town, where we were
reunited with Leon, Yuffie, and our other friends.

Leon acted like he'd forgotten Sora, but for whatever reason still knew
his name.  I guess his memory got mixed up somehow.

Aerith sensed that the town and everyone there was a product of Sora's
memories.  It may sound crazy, but I think she was right.


vi. Wonderland
---------------
When we chased after the White Rabbit, we stumbled upon a trial in
progress.  The Queen of Hearts accused Alice of stealing her memory and
sentenced her to death!

Angered by the shoddy trial, Sora freed Alice and hunted down the real
culprit.  But even after we bested the Trickmaster, the Queen refused
to believe that Alice was innocent.

Fortunately, Alice's quick thinking pacified the Queen and no one had
to lose their head.


vii. Olympus Coliseum
----------------------
Sora wanted to take on Hercules, so we all decided to compete in the
games.
 
Hades, frantic to dispose of Hercules, hired Cloud to take him out.
Cloud cooperated, think he would get his lost memories back.
 
But not even Cloud could best Hercules.  Hades stepped in to finish the
job, but we put his plans on ice.


viii. Agrabah
--------------
Aladdin brought the magic lamp back from the Cave of Wonders, hoping
for a chance to meet Jasmine, Princess of Agrabah.
 
Inside the lamp was Genie, who would grant three wishes to the lamp's
bearer.
 
Aladdin hoped to become a prince so he could see Jasmine whenever he
wanted.  But he used two wishes battling the Heartless, and then Jafar
stole the lamp.
 
Jafar turned into a genie, but we defeated him and Aladdin got the lamp
back.  Instead of becoming a prince, Aladdin used his last wish to set
Genie free, and decided he wanted Jasmine to know him as he really is.


ix. Halloween Town
-------------------
Dr. Finkelstein invented a potion that restores true memories, but it
drew the Heartless to Halloween Town.
 
Intrigued, Sora went with Jack to look for Sally, who had nabbed the
potion because she was scared of what it could do.
 
Oogie Boogie swiped the potion and downed it in a single gulp.  But 
histrue 
memories drove him mad with fear.
 
What if true memories do that to everyone's heart?  Scary.


x. Monstro
-----------
Geppetto went out looking for Pinocchio and was swallowed up by the
whale Monstro.  But finding Pinocchio inside filled him with joy.
 
But Pinocchio felt bad about running away from home and putting his
father in danger, so he set off to find a way out of Monstro.
 
After a run-in with a big Heartless, Pinocchio had a great idea: Why
not make a commotion and get Monstro to spit us out?
 
With our help, the plan worked, and Pinocchio and Geppetto escaped
safely.


xi. Atlantica
--------------
Ariel, Princess of Atlantica, was worried about her little friend
Flounder, who was nowhere to be found.

The sea witch Ursula told Ariel Flounder was trapped in the outside
world, and King Triton's trident was the only way to save him.
 
Ariel was so worried, she stole the trident for Ursula, but it was all
a trick -- Ursula had Flounder all along.
 
With the trident's power Ursula became a giant, but we stopped her and
Ariel resolved to apologize to her father, the king.


xii. Never Land
----------------
Peter Pan stowed away on Captain Hook's ship to save the kidnapped
Wendy.
 
But no sooner had she been saved that Wendy to Peter she wanted to go
home to London.
 
Would Wendy grow up and forget about him and Never Land?  Peter didn't
like that one bit, and left in a huff.
 
Meanwhile we were just trying to get off the ship.  Hook caught us on
the deck, but Peter came back and bailed us out.
 
In the end, Peter and Wendy said their farewells, but promised to meet
again one day.


xiii. Hallow Bastion
---------------------
The Beast came to rescue Belle from Maleficent's clutches, but to his
dismay, Belle acted coldly and would not go with him.
 
We felt bad for him, so we went to see Belle.  It turned out she was
only pretending to be cruel, to keep her heart and the love within safe
from Maleficent.
 
But faced with a choice, Belle couldn't hide how she felt for the
Beast, and Maleficent stole her heart.
 
Together with the Beast, we took care of Maleficent and restored
Belle's heart.


xiv. 100 Acre Wood
-------------------
Pooh seemed to have lost his friends, so Sora stopped to help him look.
 
Maybe Sora saw something of himself in Pooh, since he's looking for his
friends too.


xv. Twilight Town
------------------
The card Vexen gave us led to a town none of us remembered.
 
But Sora held fast to his promise to Namine, and we pressed on.
 
Speaking of which, Vexen seemed ready to say something about that, but
Axel showed up, and... Well, we won't be seeing Vexen again.


xvi. Destiny Islands
---------------------
The last card led us to the place where Sora grew up.
Sora wandered the islet that was once his playground, wading through
his memories to find the girl he cared for.

But when he found Namine, she told him the bitter truth - nothing he
remembered of her ever happened.


xvii. Castle Oblivion
----------------------
Well, we've made it to the top, and many of our memories are gone.
Sora can't even recall the name of the person he cares for most.
 
But we've made a promise.  No distance can separate us, and we'll be
friends even if we can't remember it to be so.
 
Axel is out of the way.  We just have to stop Marluxia.  He ordered
Namine to wipe Sora's memory, but it doesn't matter.
 
Sora knows that promises don't fade as easily as memories.

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>  ~  IV. Card Index Journals  ~  <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = 

The card index journals are the basic collection of all of the cards
obtainable in the game, ranging from attack cards to map cards.  These
sections of Jiminy's journal provide a simple explanation of each card,
including what the purpose of each card is.  The card index journals,
seeing as there so many cards in the game, have been split up into even
main categories; attack, magic, item, friend, enemy, map, and premium
cards.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
1. Attack Cards
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Attack cards will be recorded in your journal as soon as you obtain
them.  Meaning, if you find the Three Wishes attack card on the field
or through a Moogle Shop, Jiminy will enter its data in his journal.
This data can prove to be extremely beneficial, because along with
giving a description of the attack card, Jiminy also gives the player
the statistics of the weapon.  Choose your cards wisely throughout the
game, and you will destroy all obstacles.  The attack cards that you
can obtain in the game are as follows:

i. Kingdom Key
---------------
Strike: D+
Thrust: D+
Combo Finish: D+
Swing Speed: B
Element: Physical
Break Recovery: B
Required CP: *

The default weapon.  Not very powerful, but reliable and easy to
handle.


ii. Three Wishes
-----------------
Strike: C+
Thrust: D+
Combo Finish: B
Swing Speed: A

2. Magic Cards
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The next section in the card index portion of the journal are the magic
cards.  Magic cards can play a huge role in battles, so it would be
extremely wise to equip some of the more powerful ones when facing
against the more difficult opponents.  Magic cards such as Thunder
cards, later forming Thundagas will help you greatly in battles against
bosses, and summons have the potential to obliterate any foe on the
battlefield.

Jiminy records the magic cards in his journal as you obtain them, just
as he did with the attack cards.  He - like the attack cards - gives a
description on what exactly each one does, which may help if you are
unsure of their purposes.  The magic cards you can obtain in the game
are as follows:

i. Fire
--------
Magic that deals fire damage.  Stock 2 cards for Fira and 3 cards for
Firaga.


ii. Blizzard
-------------
Magic that deals ice damage.  Stock 2 cards for Blizzara and 3 cards
for Blizzaga.

cards for Thundaga.

2 cards for Gravira and 3 cards for Graviga.


vi. Stop

Magic that halts enemy movement for a set period of time.  Stop 2 cards
for Stopra and 3 cards for Stopga.


vii. Aero
----------
Magic that blows away nearby enemies and inflicts damage.  Stock 2
cards for Aerora and 3 cards for Aeroga.


viii. Simba
------------
Simba lets out a mighty roar that deals damage to enemies in front of
him.  Stock more than one and his roar will also stun enemies.


ix. Dumbo 
----------

damage.  Stock more than one to prolong the attack.

Genie will cast multiple spells.


xiii. Tinker Bell
-----------------
Tinker Bell restores HP over a set period of time.  Stock more than one
to boost the effect.


xiv. Cloud
-----------
Cloud unleashes two successive sword attacks.  Stock 3 cards to use
Omnislash.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
3. Item Cards
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Item cards are quite possibly some of the best cards in the game.  They
can be used to withdraw both attack and magic cards instantly depending
on which item card you use.  The lesser item cards are slightly
overshadowed by those in the top-most tier, but considering the lesser
ones are obtained at the start of the game, everything balances out
overall.  Use and abuse these cards to your advantage, especially if
you are having difficulty while playing the game.

Jiminy Cricket records these cards as you obtain them, just as he did
with the previous two sets.  For each item card, Jiminy explains what
each card is capable of, and if any restrictions are placed on the
card.  If no restrictions are placed on the card, then Jiminy will also
take note of any extra beneficiaries the card may possess.  The item
cards which you can obtain in the game are as follows:

i. Potion
----------
Quickly reloads attack cards with no charge time required.  It does 
not work on cards that cannot be reloaded.


ii. Hi-Potion
--------------
Quickly reloads attack cards with no charge time required.  Even
normally unreloadable cards are restored.


iii. Mega-Potion
-----------------
Quickly reloads attack cards with no charge time and resets the reload
counter.  Even normally unreloadable cards are restored.


iv. Ether
----------
Quickly reloads magic cards with no charge time required.  It does not
work on cards that cannot be reloaded.


v. Mega-Ether
-------------
Quickly reloads magic cards with no charge time and resets the counter.  
Even normally unreloadable cards are restored.


vi. Elixir
-----------
Quickly reloads attack cards and magic cards, including normally
unreloadable cards.


vii. Megalixir
---------------
Quickly reloads attack cards and magic cards, including normally
unreloadable cards.  The reload counter is also set.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
4. Friend Cards
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

These cards can be used in some battles and provide great results,
however I suggest not to make these your cards of choice.  The process
of using these cards is simple - during a battle, these cards 
will appear on the screen.  You simply have to pick them up, and use 
them.  The only problem is, they are generally weak until you learn to 
stock your cards to the best of your ability.

Friend cards only appear in the specific locations of the actual
character.  As Donald Duck and Goofy travel with you, you will be able
to find and utilize their cards in nearly every battle.  However,
friend cards such as Aladdin and the Beast are restricted to the areas
of Agrabah and Hollow Bastion respectively.  This case applies to
everyone save Donald and Goofy.

Jiminy records friend cards as soon as you meet your friend in his/her
specific area, whether it be Tinker Bell or Jack.  In his journal,
Jiminy tells of what the friend does when summoned on the battlefield
by his/her friend card, as well as what will occur if that card is
stocked.  The friend cards you can utilize in the game are as follows:

i. Donald Duck
---------------
Donald randomly casts Fire, Blizzard, Thunder, or Cure.  Stock more
than one to power up Donald's magic.


ii. Goofy
----------
Goofy swings his shield at the enemy.  Stock more than one to power up
Goofy's attack.


iii. Aladdin
-------------
Aladdin swings his sword at the enemy repeatedly.  Stock more than one
to power up Aladdin's attack.


iv. Jack
---------
Jack casts Fire, Blizzard, Thunder, or Gravity.  Stock more than one to
power up Jack's magic.


v. Ariel
---------
Ariel whirls across the field, striking many enemies.  Stock more than
one to power up Ariel's attack.


vi. Peter Pan
--------------
Peter Pan attacks with his dagger.  Stock more than one to power up
Peter's attack.


vii. The Beast
---------------
The Beast mows down anyone in Sora's path.  Stock more than one to
power up the Beast's attack.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
5. Enemy Cards
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Enemy cards could be thought of passive cards that you must enable
during a battle.  These cards will assist Sora in a number of ways, for
each enemy card possesses a different effect, usually in the gamer's
best interest.  Enemy cards, however, are extremely rare, as you obtain
these cards after battles, rather than on the field or through Moogle
Shops.  This means that these cards must drop - in order for you to
pick and add to your deck - after you defeat all enemies in a certain
battle.  When the battle is over, an enemy card will drop instead of a
map cards.

Jiminy Cricket goes through each enemy card that you pick up throughout
the game.  Along with giving a description to what the enemy cards 
actually do, Jiminy includes the name of the enemy's attack, the
weaknesses and strengths of the card, along with the card's duration,
if any was programmed.  The enemy cards you can obtain in the game are
as follows (Note: The enemy's attack name is in brackets beside the
enemy's name):

~~~~~~~~~~~~~
6. Map Cards
~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Map cards are, without a doubt, the cards that have the most relevance
in the game.  If you cause Sora to ever run out of map cards and 
thusforce him to have none on hand, you will not be able to progress
through the game until you find more map cards.  Map cards are - in
simple terms - the cards that synthesize doors and rooms.  However, the
concept of map cards is very complex, as each card will form a
different room, one with aspects drawn from the card itself.  Meaning,
if you were to synthesize a room using the Almighty Darkness card, you
will find that a lot of viscous enemies will appear in the room.
However, if you use cards such as the Sleeping Darkness map card, each
enemy in the room will have fallen asleep, and none of them will move.
The cards also are categorized in a variety of colours (Which I have
put in brackets when listing them) as well as their card values,
ranging from zero to nine.  The card values are extremely important
when synthesizing a room, for many doors will require a certain value
in order for the room to be correctly synthesized.

Jiminy Cricket records the map cards in his journal as you obtain them.  
He states the name of the cards in his journal, as well as what type of
room the cards create, what can be found inside each room, and what
additional effects will be placed on the room if it is created with a
particular card.  The map cards which you can obtain in the game are as
follows:

i. Tranquil Darkness (Red)
---------------------------
A room where only a few Heartless appear.


ii. Teeming Darkness (Red)
--------------------------
A room where many Heartless appear.  Enemies are more likely to drop
enemy cards.


iii. Feeble Darkness (Red)
--------------------------
A room where Heartless with weak cards appear.


iv. Almighty Darkness (Red)
---------------------------
A room where Heartless with strong cards appear.  Enemies are more
likely to drop enemy cards.


v. Sleeping Darkness (Red)
--------------------------
A room where Heartless are drowsy and easy to ambush.


vi. Looming Darkness (Red)
--------------------------
A room where Heartless attack relentlessly.  Enemies are more likely to
drop enemy cards.


vii. Premium Room (Red)
-----------------------
A room where victory often leads to Premium Bonuses.


viii. White Room (Red)
----------------------
A room where only White Mushrooms appear.  But what happens when you
help them out?


ix. Black Room (Red)
--------------------
A room where only Black Funguses appear.  But what happens when you
defeat one?


x. Martial Waking (Green)
-------------------------
A room where attack cards are more effective.


xi. Sorcerous Waking (Green)
-----------------------------
A room where magic cards are more effective.


xii. Alchemic Waking (Green)
----------------------------
A room where item cards are more effective.


xiii. Meeting Ground (Green)
-----------------------------
A room where a friend card appears at the beginning of all battles (If
your friends are with you).


xiv. Stagnant Space (Green)
---------------------------
A room where the Heartless move slowly.


xv. Strong Initiative (Green)
-----------------------------
A room where striking first in the field does additional damage to
Heartless.


xvi. Lasting Daze (Green)
-------------------------
A room where striking first in the field stuns all Heartless that join
the battle.


xvii. Calm Bounty (Blue)
------------------------
A room containing treasure.


xviii. Guarded Trove (Blue)
---------------------------
A room where treasure is guarded by Heartless.

triggers a battle.


xx. Moment's Reprieve (Blue)
-----------------------------
A room where you can save your progress.


xxi. Mingling Woods (Blue)

7. Premium Cards
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

There is only one section regarding premium cards in Jiminy's journal.
Since it pretty much tells all there is to know about premium cards, 
there is no need for any addition explanation.  The section reads as 
follows:

i. About Premium Cards
-----------------------
Evolved versions of normal cards.

Premium cards require very little CP, but can only be used once per
battle - no reloads allowed.

Only attack cards and magic cards can be updated to premium cards.

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>  ~  V. Character Journals  ~  <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

The second-largest area of Jiminy Cricket's journal revolves around the
characters who appear throughout the game.  And when I say the 
characters who appear throughout the game, I mean ALL the characters.
Each one has their own special place in Jiminy Cricket's journal, and,
since this area is so large, it has been split up into three
categories.

Categories one and two are similar to each other- each deal with
regular characters that make an appearance and have some form 
ofpersonality.  The third section, however, is a character section 
meant only for the Heartless, ranging from the simple Shadow all the 
way to Darkside itself.

Jiminy goes into enough detail in this section to explain each
character well enough to anyone, disregarding the question of whether
you have played the game or not.  The following are the characters that
you encounter throughout the game, in order of the sections they appear 
in: 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
1. Characters I
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

i. Sora
--------
A bright and spirited boy chosen by the Keyblade to battle the 
Heartless.

It was Sora who defeated Ansem, ending his plan to shroud the world in 
darkness.

However, Sora continued his journey, seeking the friends he lost during
the struggle.


ii. Donald Duck
----------------
Court wizard at Disney Castle who set out with Goofy after the king's 
disappearance.  

His short temper sometimes gets him into trouble, but he is very brave.

Donald is currently seeking clues to what happened to the king after he
was locked behind the door to darkness.


iii. Goofy
-----------
Captain of the Disney Castle Royal Knights.  He set out with Donald 
after the king's disappearance.  

He is cheerful and calm, and no one is more loyal to the king.

Goofy and Sora are especially good friends.


iv. Jiminy Cricket
-------------------
That's right, me again.  I'm keeping a journal of everyone's
adventures.

I also act as Pinocchio's conscience, so he'll know right from wrong.


v. Riku
--------
Sora's childhood friend.

Baited by the darkness and used by Maleficent and Ansem, Riku once
fought against Sora.

In order to seal the door to darkness, Riku stayed with the king on the
other side.  His current whereabouts are unknown.

Sora journeys in hopes of finding Riku.


vi. Kairi
----------
Sora's childhood friend.

Sora's journey began as a search for Kairi, who disappeared when their
island home was swallowed by darkness.

Kairi was held captive by the Heartless, but thanks to Sora she and the
island were saved.

She waits there for Sora and Riku's return.


vii. Simba
-----------
Successor to his father as ruler of the Pride Lands.

Sora need only call and Simba will appear and lend his strength.


viii. Dumbo
-----------
A small elephant born in a circus.

The other animals laughed at his big ears, but the courage to fly made
Dummbo the star of the circus.

If Sora calls, Dumbo will come to the rescue.


ix. Bambi
----------
A young deer prince whose father is king of the forest.

Sora can call Bambi for help anytime.


x. Mushu
---------
Once a guardian dragon of a Chinese family.  Due to past mistakes, he
lost much of his former power.

If Sora calls, Mushu will come to our aid.


xi. The Moogles
----------------
A strange race that seems to pop up just about anywhere.

In Castle Oblivion, the moogles run shops where Sora can trade in
unwanted cards.


xii. Leon
----------
A cool and collected swordsman who wields a gunblade.  His real name:
Squall Lionhart.

Leon once fought with Sora against the Heartless, but the Lean we met
in Castle Oblivion is a product of his memory, so he can't remember
much of what happened before.


xiii. Yuffie
-------------
A girl whose cheerful personality belies her painful memories.  When
she was still young, the Heartless robbed her of her home.

Never one to sweat the small stuff, Yuffie seems unfazed by her fuddled
memory.


xiv. Aerith
------------
A young woman who fought the Heartless.  Her calm demeanor hides
unbreakable will.

Aerith also has a mysterious sense of truth, and is aware that Traverse
Town and its inhabitants are a figment of Sora's memory.


xv. Cid
--------
A gifted pilot who saved Leon and the others from the Heartless when
they were just children.

Cid lives in Traverse Town now.


xvi. Cloud
-----------
A swordsman hired by Hades to take out Hercules.  Cloud seeks the true
memories he has lost.

Were they memories of someone dear to him, or memories of his own hazy
past?


xvii. Tidus
------------
A young boy from Sora's islands with a sunny personality and lots of
energy.

Tidus has no shortage of confidence either, and considers himself a
champ at everything.


xviii. Wakka
-------------
A boy from Sora's islands.

Despite being the oldest, Wakka is modest and takes good care of his
friends.


xix. Selphie
-------------
A perky girl from Sora's islands.

Selphie is assertive and tends to leap before she looks, and she also
has a romantic side.


xx. Namine
-----------
A young witch who, under orders from Malruxia, rewrote much of Sora's
memories.

Because Namine is based on the false memories on Sora's feelings
towards Kairi, Sora believed he and Namine had been friends since
childhood.

But truth be told, the two never met before Castle Oblivion.


xxi. Riku Replica
------------------
A replica of Riku created by Vexen from the real Riku's data.

Through Namine's power, he was infused with false memories and made to
believe he was the real Riku.

The truth has wounded him deeply.


xxii. Axel
-----------
A mysterious figure who stands in Sora's path.

Hard to read, half the time Axel seems to just be messing around...but
for all we know, he's done more thinking than everyone else put
together.


xxiii. Larxene
---------------
A member of the group that controls Castle Oblivion.

Larxene is unfeeling and loves nothing more than to bring other people
down.

She is on good terms with Axel but still mocks everyone and trusts no
one.


xxxiv. Vexen
-------------
A man absorbed in his dubious research in Castle Oblivion.

Vexen tried to destroy Sora by controlling Riku and pitting the two
against each other.  When his plan failed, he confronted Sora 
personally.


xxxv. Malruxia
---------------
Lord of Castle Oblivion and a member of the Organization.

In a move to bring the group under his control, Malruxia used Namine to
overrun Sora's memory and tried to claim the power of the Keyblade.

Well, that is it!  I highly enjoyed making this guide and will 
constantly check to see if I have made any errors.  Seeing as this was 
my first FAQ, I chose to take it slow-and-steady, and ultimately came 
up with this product, though I wish to further enhance my FAQ-writing 
skills for the future by writing actual walk-throughs.  Before I sign 
off until next time, I would like to thank the following:

Thank you, Glass Giant, for generating that wonderful ASCII art of 
Jiminy Cricket.

Thank you, Square Enix and Disney, for producing such an awesome game
for the GameBoy Advance.  I have been pulled towards this game as soon
as it came out, and will continue to show my full support for it.

Thank you, Nintendo, for porting this game on the second-best hand-held
of all time (Second only to the DS :P).

And of course, I wish a big thank you to the GameFAQs community for
making it such a loveable place, as well as all who took the time to
read this FAQ.  I hope it helped you in one way or another, as that was
exactly its purpose.  Again, feel free to comment or give suggestions
on how I could make this FAQ better through my email address,
mr_guy_123@hotmail.com.

Thank you all once again, and have a good night!
