    Riku's Tale I [#02]
    
    Bored with his secluded island life, Riku dreamt of seeing other worlds.
    
    He got his wish when darkness devoured Destiny Islands and he was thrust into
    the outside world.
    
    While looking for his lost friend Kairi, he met Maleficient, and accepted her
    help.
    
    But Maleficient had her eyes on Riku's strength and was working to make him
    her underdog. She gave Riku the power of darkness, but as he used it, it
    gained power over him.
    
    This is why Riku fought his best friend Sora, and how his heart fell to
    Ansem, pursuer of darkness.
    
    But Riku's heart was freed by Sora's light. Riku, Sora, and the king worked
    together to close the door to darkness, but Riku was trapped inside, in the
    realm of darkness.
    
    Will he see the realm of light again?
    _______________________________________________________________________________
    Riku's tale II [#03]
    
    Led by a mysterious voice, Riku made his way through the card-worlds, but met
    only dark beings within.
    
    Riku was told that because he rejected the other things in his life to claim
    darkness, his heart is now devoid of anything but the darkness he sought.
    
    Unable to accept this, Riku encountered Ansem, who tried yet again to conquer
    him.
    
    The king intervened to save Riku, but Ansem has not let go of his heart.
    
    And so Riku must fight the darkness within.
    _______________________________________________________________________________
    Riku's tale III [#04]
    
    Embattled with the darkness in his heart, Riku met someone who looked just
    like him, a replica crafted by Vexen, a member of the organization.
    
    The replica commanded darkness freely, and called Riku cowardly for neglecting
    the dark.
    
    Meanwhile, agents of the Organization laid their rivalry bare. Sora and Riku
    seem to be the reason they control the castle---but why?
    _______________________________________________________________________________
    Riku's tale IV [#05]
    
    Vexen took his replica of Riku and headed for the surface, but finally fell
    at Sora's hands.
    
    Lexaeus confronted Riku, meaning to bring him to submission using all force
    necessary.
    
    Though Riku won the battle, Lexaeus used his last strength to drag him into
    the realm of darkness.
    
    There, Ansem's shadow loomed large, but Riku was again saved by the king's
    light.
    _______________________________________________________________________________
    Riku's tale V [#06]
    
    One by one, members of the Organization fell at Riku and Sora's hands---even
    Marluxia, lord of the castle.
    
    Zexion, hoping to avoid a similar fate, tried to use memories of Riku's
    island home against him.
    
    Ignored by his friends and even attacked by Sora---it seemed Riku would be
    washed away by the light, but Kairi's voice gave him courage.
    
    No longer afraid of the darkness, Riku saw through the fake Sora and thwarted
    Zexion's trap.
    _______________________________________________________________________________
    Riku's tale VI [#07]
    
    By embracing his inner darkness, Riku gained a great power, but so did Ansem.
    
    Guided by the enigmatic DiZ, Riku made his way through Twilight Town,
    defeating his copy and locating Namine.
    
    With her he found Sora and friends in a deep slumber, waiting to get their
    lost memories back.
    
    Naminé told Riku he could seal Ansem away forever by forgetting him, but Riku
    would not give up his memories.
    
    Riku chose to fight by his own strength. With the king at his side, he now
    makes ready for a final battle with Ansem.
    
    Will his choice take him to the realm of light...or darkness?
    _______________________________________________________________________________
    -[Card Index]-
    
    Soul Eater [#08]
    
    Reacts to dark power. Riku's strength is higher when he wields darkness in
    battle
    _______________________________________________________________________________
    The King [#09]
    
    The King restores HP, stuns and deals damage to all enemies, and reloads cards.
    _______________________________________________________________________________
    -[Characters I]-
     
    Riku [#10]
    
    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 [#11]
    
    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.
    _______________________________________________________________________________
    Sora [#12]
    
    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.
    _______________________________________________________________________________
    Kairi [#13]
    
    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.
    _______________________________________________________________________________
    Namine [#14]
    
    A young witch who can manipulate memories.
    
    Under orders from the Organization, Namine 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.
    _______________________________________________________________________________
    Riku Replica [#15]
    
    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.
    _______________________________________________________________________________
    Ansem [#16]
    
    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.
    _______________________________________________________________________________
    Vexen [#17]
    
    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.
    _______________________________________________________________________________
    Lexaeus [#18]
    
    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.
    _______________________________________________________________________________
    Zexion [#19]
    
    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.
    _______________________________________________________________________________
    Axel [#20]
    
    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 Naminé to silence Marluxia and halt his plot against the Organization.
    
    Axel claims he and Sora have something in common, but that connection is
    unclear.
    _______________________________________________________________________________
    Marluxia [#21]
    
    No. 11 in the Organization.
    
    Marluxia lured Sora to Castle Oblivion in hopes of using his power to seize
    the Organization.
    
    He orderd Naminé 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 Naminé free.
    
    Marluxia was ultimately destroyed by Sora.
    _______________________________________________________________________________
    Larxene [#22]
    
    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.
    _______________________________________________________________________________
    DiZ [#23]
    
    Truly an enigma.
    
    DiZ appeared before Riku in the guise of Ansem, presenting him with choices
    regarding the darkness within his heart.
