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?

-[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.

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.

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.

conquer Riku.

darkness.
_______________________________________________________________________________

No. 6 in the Organization.

Zexion generally avoids dirtying his own hands when there are deeds to be

action.

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.
_______________________________________________________________________________
