Gas is running out here, too. I went to the store today to pick up cases of water and food, and it was a mad house. We don't even know how we're going to get hit yet. It could be just a tropical storm, it could be a category 1 or 3. We won't know until Saturday or Sunday, but schools are already closing and people are leaving.

There are three families of Keyblades: the Keyblades of light we wield, Keyblades of darkness, and Keyblades of heart.
The first and second families differ only in origin; Keyblades of darkness are found in the realm of darkness, and are counterparts to the Keyblades we use in the realm of light.
The third type of key, the Keyblade of heart, came into existence when the World was reorganized after the Keyblade War. Without this key, Kingdom Hearts is forever beyond a person’s reach. Only by gathering together seven hearts of pure light—hearts completely devoid of darkness—may one forge a Keyblade of heart and open the door to Kingdom Hearts.
And, as stated before, opening this door arguably gives that person control over all worlds and all people. –
About the Keyblades
V - There is still a lot of mystery about the Keyblades I think. The "Light side, heart of worlds Keyblade" that Sora wields, the "Keyblade of people's hearts" made from the Seven Princesses' hearts for Riku, and the "Dark side, heart of worlds Keyblade" that the king obtained in the realm of darkness, presently these 3 types can be confirmed. Could you please explain things a little further?
Keyblades have 2 different constitutions, either from the Light side or the Dark side. This is merely the exterior key, the inner key can act from either side and its abilities won't change. There is no clear division between good and evil. Usually the door to each world is closed and the keyhole itself is not visible. By bringing a Keyblade nearby, the Keyhole appears. But the lock is not actually closed itself. Indeed, the Heartless were able to find the door and easily open it and in this way steal hearts. In the previous game, Sora turned the locks and closed these doors. Furthermore, about the opened door of the integrated heart of worlds "Kingdom Hearts" itself, to prevent the outflow of the darkness within hearts the intent and reasons were different so the Keyblade was used for a different purpose. In order to work, the door needs to be closed from both the Dark side and the Light side and both a dark and light realm Keyblade are needed. The King needed a Keyblade opposite from the realm of light Keyblade that Sora had, so he went to the realm of darkness to obtain one.
The Keyblade constructed from the Seven Princesses' hearts that Riku obtained in the previous game allowed for the Keyhole in Hollow Bastion to appear. For the plan to cause darkness to overflow from hearts, the special hearts held by the Princesses were used to artificially make this Keyblade. So it is different from a proper Keyblade. There are further suggestions that this Keyblade is artificial as well.
VI - Could you please give an explanation for the new Keyblade "Way to the Dawn" that Riku obtained and the Keyblade Kairi has as well as what the conditions for using a Keyblade are?
There isn't necessarily one Keyblade for the dark side and one for the light side, just as many as there exist people with qualified hearts. Concerning the conditions to wield one, at this stage, "Those with strong hearts" is the only obvious one. However, less obvious conditions still exist and there are still plans for an opportunity to reveal those. Riku's "Way to the Dawn" and Kairi's Keyblade are naturally the same type of Keyblade as Sora's. However there is no particular explanation for the Soul Eater's transfer and occurrence, as well as Riku's handing it to Kairi. When there isn't a normal process of acquisition, I think its OK to think there is some deeper meaning there.
Even though Riku was the rightful owner of the Keyblade, then why did Sora obtain the Keyblade in the beginning?
Nomura: Even though I would like to keep that obscure, there is a scene in Destiny islands where Riku is being swallowed by darkness, a light appears, and Sora first obtains the keyblade. With the setting I created, the darkness that surrounds them is Riku’s heart’s darkness. At that moment, Sora enters the darkness, and the light he sees inside is Riku’s heart’s light. Sora, who was squirming in the darkness to save Riku, touched the light and temporarily obtained the Keyblade from Riku. ---Does not the Keyblade itself choose its owner? Nomura: The Keyblade reacts to the rightful owner’s heart and appears to them. Even though it was definitely Riku who called the Keyblade towards him, the reason why Sora was able to weild it was because he also had the right qualities too.
In Aqua’s chapter, on Destiny Islands, was Aqua originally intending to perform the Bequeathing for Sora or Riku?
Yes. When Aqua met Sora and Riku, she was on the point of realizing that she may end up having to fight Terra. At that time, she was going to perform the Bequeathing for Sora, but realized that Terra had already performed it for Riku. Not wanting Sora and Riku to end up fighting like her and Terra are in the future, she didn’t perform the rite for Sora. This is the meaning behind her murmurs that “One Keyblade is enough for any friendship” and that she “wouldn’t wish their lives on those hildren.” When she tells Sora he must save Riku if he ends up walking the wrong path, she’s projecting her own thoughts onto Sora.
This time we saw the “Bequeathing”. Is that a required condition for becoming a Keyblade user?
That’s essentially correct. In terms of the Bequeathing itself, the successee just has to make the successor grasp their Keyblade–if this rite is performed by a Keyblade Master, and if they have suitable power, the Keyblade could choose that person as a Keyblade user, and appear before them. Terra, Ventus; all have passed this rite. Sora is the only exception.
So, it’s not that “once Sora’s story is over the story of a new hero will begin”, but that the series will always have Sora as the hero, isn’t it?
Yeah. One of the concepts of the series is that the hero Sora isn’t some special being, but a normal boy. Sure, his heart is connected to Ventus and the others, but other than that, he’s a normal kid that could have come from anywhere, that hasn’t inherited anything from anyone. I want to make Sora a character that will give the player the feeling that “even if I’m not some special being, I have the possibility buried inside of connecting with many others to accomplish things”. In Birth by Sleep, I wish for all the fans to hope to see that Sora reappears. The secret cutscene is what symbolizes this, and so please work your way there, and wait for Sora’s role in the future.
1. Deviation or departure from the normal or common order, form, or rule.
2. One that is peculiar, irregular, abnormal, or difficult to classify: "Both men are anomalies
Thank you so much! You and this definition pretty much answer my question. Still confusing as hell but at least I have an understanding about Namine appearance. I hope we can do this again in the future! You're the best!
I got all the answers that I need about Namine. However, while I do get that Namine doesn't have Kairi's body. And I especially get that Namine doesn't have Sora body because I already know about the connection between Sora, Roxas, and Ventus. But the one thing I don't understand is that if Namine was born after Sora release Kairi's heart from his body than how Namine was able to have a humanoid form? Like did Namine use Sora's body shadow to make a humanoid form or Namine doesn't have an humanoid form or any form at all?
Namine has been stated to be an anomoly period. She doesn't have a physical body. She just is ~
Hey HarLea! It's been awhile. Okay I think I understand about Namine being Kairi's Nobody but there's some more info I like to know. So please correct me if I'm wrong.
1.) So if a person lost his or her's heart into darkness their heart becomes a shadow Heartless right? But then if the person's lifeless body has a strong-will then that lifeless will be able to move in it's own and becomes a Nobody right? But for Kairi the reason why she didn't have a heartless was because she was the Seven Princesses of Heart. Therefore she had no darkness inside her heart?
If a person loses their heart to darkness they form a heartless ( does not necessarily mean a shadow heartless it can be a different kind bc the more darkness you had the stronger the heartless) If said person had a strong heart and will they will form a humanoid nobody."It is the soul and body that remain when a being loses its heart.
When a Heartless is born, these entities disappear from the realm of light, to be reborn as entirely new beings in a completely different realm." Kairi had no darkness since she was a PoH therefore no heartless.
2.) The reason why Kairi's lifeless body in KH1 didn't move on it's own was because her heart was inside of Sora? Or because her heart was still part of the Realm of Light? If her heart didn't get lost into darkness therefore Kairi's body wasn't able to move it's own right?
"With no darkness in her heart, Kairi produced no Heartless, and instead of vanishing, her body remained in the realm of light." Her body and soul were not reborn in another realm as a new being like nobodies usually do when they are born. "One reason for this may be that Kairi’s heart did not return to the darkness when separated from her body, but rather migrated to another vessel…deep within Sora’s heart." - Kairi's heart did hide in Sora until he released it.
3.) If Kairi lost her heart inside of Sora and then that means Namine was already born right? If that's the case then the reason why Namine didn't have a physical form was because Kairi's heart was still part of the Realm of Light? So since Kairi's heart was part of the Realm of Light Namine was a "non existence?" However, after Sora release both his and Kairi's heart in Hollow Bastion then Namine was able to have a physical form because Kairi's heart was release from Sora's body? If Kairi's heart was release from Sora's body then that would explain why Namine was connected to Sora and why she had powers to control his memories?
Namine was born when Sora released Kairis heart - not when Kairis heart left her body to hide in Sora. Namine does not have a physical body. She does not have kairi's body or Sora's body. She was an anomoly bc she was born from Kairi's heart leaving Sora's body and using Sora's body's darkness. She should not exist because she wasn't born from the usual circumstances of nobodies and is not Kairi's body and soul. Yet she does exist - she is one of the special nobodies formed under special circumstances."That is, Naminé is an alter ego of the Kairi who has directly interfered with Sora’s heart. Could this be why Sora and those whose hearts are connected to him were able to have their memories controlled? She is a “non-being” in the truest sense of the word; having not even become a Nobody and with nowhere left to go, she is but the most fleeting of shadows." All of this stated in the report.
I'm sorry for asking you all these questions but I hope you can take the time and please help me out with these. I really appreciate this.
Read the whole report - she has no heartless. Namine was an unstable being that did not have a physical body yet was Kairi's nobody. She breaks the rules of being a nobody but at the same time she is the epitomy of a nobody- a being that should not exist. When Kairi hugged shadow Sora and purified him he took human form but he was still a walking heart with no body. Roxas was his physical body. You took those words out of context and ignored the first part of the report that explains this.
Secret Ansem Report 9
I should have expected nothing less from a Keyblade-wielding hero.
Sora and friends defied the machinations of Organization XIII and rescued Naminé.
Naminé was a witch who controlled the memories of others.
Most likely these powers were achieved through a special process when she was born.
Naminé is a Nobody, created when a young girl’s heart left her body.
Yet she has no corresponding Heartless.
This is because the “young girl” in this case was a princess.
Kairi, a resident of Radiant Garden over which I had ruled, was one of the Seven Princesses that uphold the realm of light.
With no darkness in her heart, Kairi produced no Heartless, and instead of vanishing, her body remained in the realm of light.
In other words, both the Nobody called Naminé and the Heartless—proof of a lost heart—are extremely unstable beings who lack the bodies needed to produce a Nobody. Therefore, they also lack Kairi’s memories. One reason for this may be that Kairi’s heart did not return to the darkness when separated from her body, but rather migrated to another vessel…deep within Sora’s heart.
That is, Naminé is an alter ego of the Kairi who has directly interfered with Sora’s heart. Could this be why Sora and those whose hearts are connected to him were able to have their memories controlled?
She is a “non-being” in the truest sense of the word; having not even become a Nobody and with nowhere left to go, she is but the most fleeting of shadows.
