* LightEmUp: Almost of his attacks are of the light element.
* LightIsGood: A vehement believer in this.
* LightIsNotGood: His belief that straying from the light in any capacity is evil is what causes him to attack Ventus and Terra. Eraqus's dialogue implies that his fanaticism towards light, ironically, made his heart susceptible to darkness.

* TheMentor: Ironic, considering that [[Creator/MarkHamill he is]] [[Franchise/StarWars Luke Skywalker]], and filled the same role in the ''Literature/JediAcademyTrilogy''....and unfortunately, also in ''Film/TheForceAwakens'', as far as Luke's luck with apprentices falling to the dark side, whose actions ultimately cause the end of everything their respective masters had built.

She is Kairi's Nobody, born when Kairi's heart was freed from Sora's after he turned into a Heartless. Unlike the others, she appears to actually have feelmaqings due to lacking memories of her previous life to base her reaction off of.

An enigmatic figure who aids Riku
''[[VideoGame/KingdomHeartsIII III]]''

One of the few remaining Keyblade Masters in ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsBirthBySleep'', he lives in the Land of Departure as the mentor of Terra, Aqua,
and Naminé. Working against Ventus. Eraqus is a kind and fatherly man, but he vehemently opposes the Organization, he is willing to use rather questionable means of darkness and refuses to meet his goals. It turns out he's actually Ansem accept the Wise, idea that it may have a proper place in the teacher of world. This places him at odds with Master Xehanort, trying to atone for the atrocities done by as they trained together but Xehanort and Xemnas in his name, and for the aforementioned questionable actions he committed in the process.developed some rather different ideas about darkness.



* TheAtoner: Once he realizes the evil behind his actions. One of his last deeds before the Kingdom Hearts Encoder goes up is to apologise to Roxas for what he did.
* BadassBookworm: [[spoiler:Remember the library from Kingdom Hearts? That's this guy's.]]
* BandagedFace: As [=DiZ=].
* BeneathTheMask: Near the end of Roxas' prologue in ''II'', when he sees that Riku has [[spoiler: taken on the form of Xehanort's Heartless]], Ansem laughs at the sight. As he admits to Mickey later [[spoiler: in the World That Never Was]], he was actually deeply ashamed that Riku had become a victim of his lust for revenge and his laughter was a facade to hide it.
* BlackCloak: As of [[spoiler:''Birth By Sleep'''s secret ending, he is wearing an Organization black coat to protect himself from the darkness.]]
* BrainUploading: ''Dream Drop Distance'' reveals that [[spoiler:he uploaded a complete version of his mind to Sora's own mind along with his research data. The Data-Ansem is actually very personable and intelligent, and even jokes around with Riku, having not lost its memory like the real Ansem.]]
* CastingAShadow: Obtained dark powers through his festering hatred when he was [[spoiler: banished to the Realm of Nothingness, Unfortunately, like Riku, he lost them when his Kingdom Hearts Encoder exploded, leaving him trapped in the Realm of Darkness without the ability to open a dark portal.]]
* TheChessmaster: With Xemnas as his opponent. Most of his plotting occurs in ''Chain of Memories'' and ''II'', though at least one of his schemes has lasted to after ''Dream Drop Distance'', and has yet to be fully revealed.
* ClearMyName: An aspect of his motivation since the fall of Radiant Garden.
* CoolOldGuy: Once he takes off the bandages. [[spoiler:He's even cooler in ''Dream Drop Distance'', where he takes up joking with Riku about Sora, and reminds him of how much he's changed from his "Riku-Ansem" phase.]]
* CrazyPrepared: Knowing that he needed to make sure that his data would be safe, he [[spoiler:stored it within the one place he knew for a fact would be available and able to defend itself to the point where people wouldn't even know it would be there at all: Sora's heart. This extended to the point of him storing an entire data-copy of himself within said heart, along with his research data, so that when it was necessary, someone could retrieve it, even if he himself might not have survived to see that day.]]
** Even after [[spoiler:being blown into the Realm of Darkness and losing his memory, he still managed to have a black coat on hand to protect him.]]
* CulturedBadass: A remarkably polite individual, especially [[spoiler:once he realizes how much his actions have hurt people]], but if you endanger the worlds he will do everything in his power to make sure you don't succeed.
* DarkIsNotEvil: He's a [[{{Jerkass}} real jerk]] and a ManipulativeBastard, but, regardless of his use of Corridors of Darkness, he still refuses to submit to the darkness like Xehanort and Organization XIII's founding members and works in the interests of light, regardless of his personal reasons.
* DisneyDeath: The ending of [[spoiler:''Birth by Sleep'' shows that he survived his sacrifice and now waits for Sora to free him and Aqua from the Realm of Darkness]].
* DramaticUnmask: Near the end of ''Kingdom Hearts II''. That said, it's only dramatic to the viewers. The only other person present (King Mickey) already knew who he was.
* EasyAmnesia: He teetered on the edge of it for [[spoiler:his entire exile to the realm of darkness by his disciples, but kept focus thanks to hatred. When he ends up there again after KHII, he quickly forgets almost everything but Sora, presumably because he doesn't have such hatred anymore. All he's holding on to is his memory of Sora, since he put his research data, all he has left to help him with, inside of him.]]
* EccentricMentor: Not nearly as much since the end of ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsII'', but he still has a couple of quirks.
* EvilSoundsDeep: Subverted. He has the world's greatest villain's voice, but he's actually on the side of good.
* EmperorScientist: As [[spoiler:Ansem the Wise]].
* FantasticRacism: [=DiZ=] justifies his actions against the Organization XIII, no matter how cruel, by noting that they have no right to exist in the first place. Although numerous other characters (up to and including Sora himself) have this point of view in ''II'', reasoning that Nobodies possess no real emotions and thus aren't worthy of pity or mercy, [=DiZ=] is far more malicious in his hatred of Nobodies, and he learns how wrong he is to use the "Nobodies-Don't-Exist" justification as a general rule by the end of the game, when he removes his bandages.
* FunWithAcronyms: ''D''arkness ''i''n ''Z''ero. An in-universe example that he never explains personally to anyone else in universe, and is only mentioned in his Secret Reports.
%%* GentlemanAndAScholar
* GadgeteerGenius: If it's any indication, he built a machine that ''digitizes hearts.'' It did explode spectacularly, but points for trying.
* GoodIsNotNice: After being trapped in the Realm of Nothingness. He grows out of it as he enters his status as TheAtoner.
* HeelRealization: He finally realizes how horrid he has become by the time he [[spoiler:storms the Castle That Never Was with his Kingdom Hearts encoder]], though this began back during the beginning of the game when he saw just how far Riku was willing to go to save Sora.
* HeWhoFightsMonsters: In his quest to bring down the schemes of the Organization XIII, he became racist and as immoral, if not more so in some extents, than some of the members of the group itself, making him into a Type IV AntiHero. He seems to have figured this out by the time he [[spoiler:storms the Castle That Never Was]].
* ImpersonationParadox: After getting [[spoiler:his identity stolen by Xehanort, he uses the disguise of Ansem, Seeker of Darkness, in Chain of Memories as a disguise while he is in Castle Oblivion. Afterwards, Riku joins up with him in a Black Coat and Ansem, under the guise of [=DiZ=], ask who he is; when he pulls down the hood and introduces himself as Ansem, the real Ansem can only laugh about it and greets him with evident sarcasm which Riku fails to see.]]
* InTheHood: A standard feature, and he has not taken it off.
* {{Jerkass}}: Regarding Roxas, though he does apologize for it in the end, [[spoiler:shortly before his HeroicSacrifice.]]
* KickTheDog: His manipulation of Roxas, ordering the execution of Naminé, seeing Riku (and pretty much everyone else) as nothing but a tool for his own vengeance, and actively sabotaging King Mickey's attempts to contact Riku.
* LegacyCharacter: His real name is taken by so many people that he actually comes across an ImpersonationParadox by accident.
* ManInTheIronMask: Played with. [[spoiler:Xehanort]] stole his original name and banished him to the Realm of Nothingness. When he escaped, he decided to fulfill the "disguised face" part of the trope himself, and occasionally used magic to impersonate the guy impersonating him.
%%* MaskPower
* MeaningfulName: [=DiZ=] is a corruption of the first three letters of Disney.
** Also InUniverse. It stands for "Darkness in Zero".
* NonActionGuy: Has no martial abilities to speak of and is overwhelmed by a group of low-tier Nobodies.
* PointyEars: His ears have slight points to them. Given they weren't present in his depictions in the past, it's probably a side-effect of the darkness.
* ThePowerOfHate: His rage towards [[spoiler:his treacherous apprentices]] is what kept him sane in the Realm of Darkness and gave him the darkness based powers to escape it. This is what makes his CharacterDevelopment backfire on him [[spoiler:when he's thrown back into the Realm of Darkness. With no anger left he is not only stuck there but loses his memories as well.]]
* {{Revenge}}: Another implied motivation, especially with what he [[LotusEaterMachine does to]] [[DefectorFromDecadence Roxas]], who had nothing to do with the above. The power of Sora's and Riku's strong hearts cause him to think differently.

One of the few remaining Keyblade Masters in ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsBirthBySleep'', he lives in the Land of Departure as the mentor of Terra, Aqua, and Ventus. Eraqus is a kind and fatherly man, but he vehemently opposes the use of darkness and refuses to accept the idea that it may have a proper place in the world. This places him at odds with Master Xehanort, as they trained together but Xehanort developed some rather different ideas about darkness.

[[folder:Foretellers]]
!The Foretellers

A group of five Keyblade Masters from the era of the Keyblade War. They were each given a volume of the Book of Prophecies from their Master, which foretells that Light will fall to the Darkness. To prevent this, each leads a Union of Keyblade wielders who are sent out to protect the worlds from darkness. They also believe one amongst them is a traitor to the others, as the last page of the Book of Prophecies is missing.

----
* AnimalMotifs: Each Foreteller has a unique mask representing the Union they lead, which all have their own patron animal.
** Ava: Foxes
** Ira: Unicorns
** Aced: Bears
** Gula: Leopards
** Invi: Snakes
* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: The Foretellers aren't just Keyblade Masters, they're ''the'' Keyblade Masters. The originals. And as expected, they are the toughest bosses in the game outside event raid bosses.
** For reference, [[spoiler:when they battle the player in the opening stages of the Keyblade War, they simply remark that you're a remarkably strong Keyblade Wielder, implying that they weren't even going all out against you, before moving on while you keel over out of exhaustion.]]
* BigBadFriend: All Foretellers know that one of their number is a traitor.
* BigDamnHeroes: The Foreteller of the Union the player chooses first appears to save the player from a Darkside.
* CoolMask: The Union animal masks.
* TheFaceless: Almost. Their faces are completely obscured by their masks, but we can read their expressions somewhat by the fact that the lower half of their faces are still visible. Invi however covers her mouth with a scarf in addition to the standard mask and hood combo, leaving her almost entirely as this.
* FatalFlaw: All of them have a certain flaw to their personalities that drive a wedge between them due to their particular roles. However, the one thing they all share is their almost blind faith in the Master's teachings, with disagreements over what he told them to do sparking the conflict that leads to the Keyblade War.
* FinalBoss: [[spoiler: The final battle of [[Videogame/KingdomHeartsX Kingdom Hearts X]] is against four of the five Foretellers, one after another, as the Keyblade War rages. Whichever Union the player picks at the beginning of the game makes their chosen Foreteller TheUnfought.]]
* FiveManBand:
** TheLeader: Ira
** TheBigGuy[=/=]TheRival[[labelnote:*]] Also tasked with being TheLancer, but fails[[/labelnote]]: Aced
** TheSneakyGuy[=/=]TheLancer[[labelnote:*]]Acts as TheConsigliere to Ira since Aced fails to[[/labelnote]]: Invi
** TheSmartGuy[=/=]TagalongKid: Gula
** TheHeart[=/=]TheChick[[labelnote:*]]May also qualify as TheHero, being the most outwardly helpful Foreteller.[[/labelnote]]: Ava
* InTheHood: Each Foreteller wears a hooded, embroidered cloak.
* SevenDeadlySins: The theme of the Foretellers' names.
** NonIndicativeName: None of the apprentices' personalities fit the sin of their namesake. For example, despite being named after the sin of sloth, Aced better embodies wrath, the sin Ira is named after.
* ShoutOut: Their AnimalMotif is mostly a reference to the ''Ancrene Wisse''. Gula is an exception, being a leopard rather than a sow (a female pig), and the other two, scorpion of lust and lion of pride, are unaccounted for and presumably apply to Luxu (also an exception - his motif is a goat) and the Master of Masters respectively.

Ava is the youngest of the Foretellers and can more easily form friendships with the Keyblade Wielders. She has a kind personality and is leader of the Vulpes union.

----
* AnimalMotifs: Foxes represent the Vulpes union. [[spoiler:This is reflected in her deceitful (albeit well-intentioned) choice to create the Dandelions without the other Foreteller's knowledge. However, it's later revealed that she did so on the Master's orders.]]
* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: It's probably a good idea to save up some Jewels before your first fight with Ava. [[ThatOneBoss You're gonna end up spending several hundred on continues alone...]]
* BigGood: So far, Ava is shaping up to be this as she is taking matters into her own hands to make ''something'' salvageable out of the whole war - all without the other Foretellers' knowledge.
* TheChessmaster: Ava, [[spoiler:recognizing the coming Keyblade War and taking steps to preserve Keyblade wielders with strong hearts against the destruction it will bring, all without the knowledge of the other four Foretellers.]]
* CutenessProximity: When the Master shows the Foretellers the first baby Chirithy he brewed up, Ava just ''melts'' at the sight of it. Out of all them, she also appears to have the closest relationship with the Chirities (or at least the Player's).
* DividedWeFall: Even though she is the most levelheaded of the Foretellers when it comes to the issue of the traitor, Ava still unwittingly goes behind everyoneís back by creating the secret Dandelion union, despite that being her assigned mission.
** In ''Back Cover'', Ava angrily confronts Invi about her actions, accusing her of making things worse. Invi tries to turn it on her by citing the Dandelion union, but backs off apologetically when Ava reveals she was ordered to.
** She and Gula are also approached by Aced to form an alliance against the other unions, but she's the only one who declines. She later declines to help Gula's drastic plan to summon Kingdom Hearts in the hopes of forcing their Master to return.
** Later on, while racing to de-escalate the confrontation between Aced and Gula, Ava laments this very trope.
** She does still does something that's not in accord with her mission, namely attacking Luxu when she finds him and fails to interrogate him.
* FinalBoss: [[spoiler: If the player is not a member of her union, then she is the last master they encounter in the war.]]
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: Unwittingly strikes the first blow in the Keyblade War against Luxu. Though to be fair, she was less concerned with fruitlessly trying to prevent it than making sure something survived the conflict.
* FightingYourFriend: Chirithy mentions that she and Gula have a close friendship with one another. [[spoiler:Nonetheless, they have to go to war against each other during the Keyblade War.]]
* FlingALightIntoTheFuture: Ava is gathering Keyblade Wielders with strong hearts and no strong attachments to the Unions in order to prepare for [[spoiler:the Keyblade War--not to fight, but to send them away so that they can survive and rebuild.]]
* MasterOfIllusion: [[spoiler:And she's rather fond of using those powers for secret tests.]]
* NiceGirl: Ava is an absolute ''sweetheart.'' Despite the occasional manipulation, everything she does is to keep everyone else safe, and she really goes out of her way to try and keep the Foretellers together. This is also evidenced in the game itself - she's adored by even Keyblade wielders from rival unions and has a very easy time making friends.
* SecretTestOfCharacter: Ava [[spoiler:''challenges the player to battle'' when she gets the notion that they think she might be hiding something]]. Of course, it turns out to only be a test, and she doesn't really think [[spoiler:the player is accusing her]].
** [[spoiler:She later disguises herself as ''the player's Foreteller'' (or as Ira if the player is in Vulpes) and confronts the player as they snoop around the Foretellers' tower, claiming responsibility for Ephemer's disappearance and saying he was a traitor. This incites the player to challenge the Foreteller to battle to defend their friend, thereby proving to Ava the strength of their heart.]]
* SevenDeadlySins: Ava is short for ''avaritia'' (greed).
* WhatTheHellHero:
** Ava calls Invi out for making things worse than they already are.
** Subjected to one by the player [[spoiler:if she is the final boss. It amounts to "I've been looking for you. Why are you even participating in this battle when you were the one who set up the alternative?"]]

Ira reliably leads the Unicornis union with a steady and serious personality.

----
* AnimalMotifs: Unicorns represent the Unicornis union.
* BigDamnHeroes: After tensions run high between the unions Aced attacks the player character only to be stopped by Ira.
* DividedWeFall: Ira is the one who first reports of the existence of the traitor after noticing the absence of a page in the Book of Prophecies, inadvertently starting the paranoia within the Foretellers.
** He and Aced are shown to have a very strenuous relationship right from the revelation of the traitorís existence onwards. This only escalates more the further the tensions between the unions rise, resulting in a confrontation in the Fountain Square in Daybreak Town and a declaration of war between their unions. At one point, it is slightly mended when Ira is the only Foreteller that doesn't challenge Aced and helps him up in the back alley, and the latter warns the former of Gula's own treachery. It doesn't last, of course.
* FinalBoss: [[spoiler: If the player is a member of Vulpes, then he is the last master they encounter in the war.]]
* TheLeader: Even though the five Unions each have their own leader and general autonomy, the Master appointed Ira as the overall leader in his absence.
* LightEmUp: He summons a holographic projection of the Nightmare Chirithy.
* NiceGuy: He comes off as very stoic and sometimes even cold, but he still sees the best in everyone. Even after all the damage Aced caused, Ira doesn't hesitate in helping him out after finding him injured in a back alley.
* SevenDeadlySins: ''Ira'' is Latin for wrath.
* WhatTheHellHero: Ira calls out Aced when the Ursus union leader [[spoiler:beats down on the ''X'' protagonist]]. In his opinion Aced, as a Keyblade Master, has no business [[spoiler:raising his weapon against a subordinate Keyblade Wielder]].
* WideEyedIdealist: Comes across as this, [[YouCantFightFate especially in the Master's eyes.]] Regardless of what the Master told, Ira still believes the world can be saved and the Keyblade War can be averted. In response, the Master just half-mockingly wishes him good luck and walks away.
** YouCantFightFate: Doesn't still quite believe this, but at least understood his Master's words that their responsibility isn't to stop the War from happening, only to ensure that light survives the aftermath.

With his daring, self-righteous personality Aced sometimes hotheadedly confronts the other Foretellers. Leads the Ursus union on his quest for more power.

----
* AnimalMotifs: Bears represent the Ursus union.
* TheBigGuy: The most physically imposing of the Foretellers, his fighting style in ''Back Cover'' involves the most brute force and property damage.
* TheComicallySerious: Due to his serious and over-bearing personality, [[{{Troll}} the Master]] loves absolutely nothing more than to yank his chain at every chance he gets.
* TheConsigliere: His role given to him by the Master is to act as Ira's right-hand man, and someone who occasionally needs to give him a push now and again. Needless to say, [[EpicFail he's beyond terrible at it.]]
* CurbStompBattle: [[spoiler:Aced ''whales'' on the ''X'' protagonist at the fountain square. He only stops when they collapse from exhaustion and Ira shows up.]]
* DividedWeFall: Aced is fervently searching the traitor and in the process antagonizing most of his fellow Foretellers.
** Right from the revelation of the traitorís existence he and Ira continuously seem to upset one another. This eventually results in an armed confrontation between them in the Daybreak Town Fountain Square and a subsequent declaration of war.
** After doubting the Master of Masterís wisdom, he and Invi fight each other atop Daybreak Townís rooftop. This serves as the first sign to the player character that there is a rising friction between the unions.
** Aced plans to form an alliance against Invi and Ira with other foretellers, but things seem to go south resulting in another fight, this time between him and Gula.
* TheHeavy: While he is not yet shown to be the traitor, his actions serve to continuously deepen the friction between the Foretellers. He is involved in almost every confrontation and is the most antagonistic force working against the player character.
** Part of the job the Master of Masters gave him is to stir the others into action. Arguably he does that too well.
* {{Jerkass}}: Out of all the Foretellers, Aced is the most outwardly unpleasant. Aggressive, dismissive of everyone around him, outright hostile to the player, and actively picks fights with his fellow Foretellers, you'd be pressed to think that ''he's'' the traitor. But in truth, it's his obsession to find the traitor that makes him so dickish.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Yes, he's an absolute dick and picks fights with just about everyone, but in his heart he just does what he thinks is right. It takes him a ''long time'' to realize that beating the crap out of Keyblade wielders and his fellow Foretellers is the wrong way of going about it and just makes ''him'' seem suspicious more than anything else.
* TheLancer: The Master of Masters gave him the role of supporting [[TheLeader Ira]].
** TheStarscream: The Master accuses him of being jealous of Ira, and encourages him to step up if Ira can't get the job done.
* LeaderWannabe: His conversation with the Master pretty much has him stammering regarding him Ira's role as TheLeader and how Aced is to be his second, with [[FreudianSlip Aced nervously stating that he wouldn't mind being the leader if the Master asked him for it.]] He changes his mind once he's told that his role was the most important and that he'll be the true leader of the Foretellers if Ira doesn't step up to the task.
* SevenDeadlySins: Aced is short for ''acedia'' (sloth).
* ThisIsUnforgivable: Betrayal of any kind. He didn't believe that there were was a traitor at first, which caused him to see Ira as a BrokenPedestal for most of the story. His fight with Invi [[spoiler:was caused by her convincing Gula to break his alliance with him. Finally, Gula gets a CurbStompBattle from Aced after finding out that he had the Lost Page that described the existence of a traitor and kept it a secret to the other Foretellers, which resulted in them fighting each other.]]
* WhatTheHellHero: Aced calls Ira a fool for revealing the existence of a traitor to the entire group.
* YouWillNotEvadeMe: During a battle scene in ''Back Cover'', Aced is revealed to possess the ability to manipulate spacial vacuums. He does so by firing {{Sword Beam}}s at Invi that transform into vacuums to pull her towards him.

One of the five powerful and mysterious Keyblade Masters from the era of the Keyblade War. A lone-wolf who values the individual over any fellowship. He leads the Leopardos union with a cool head and an aloof attitude.

----
* AnimalMotifs: Leopards represent the Leopardos union.
* CombatPragmatist: Attempts to finish off Aced when he thinks he's weak from previous battles. [[spoiler:Doesn't work out.]]
* DividedWeFall: Being already the coldest of the Foretellers, the revelation of the traitor only convinces Gula that there is no one he can trust.
** He is approached by Aced to form an alliance, but the negotiations turn sour resulting in an armed confrontation between him and the Ursus union leader.
** Failing that, and in desperation for an explanation from their absent Master, he states his intention to Ava to summon Kingdom Hearts as a way to call back their Master, through collecting more and more Lux. Aghast at the extreme measure just for that purpose, Ava has to sorrowfully decline helping him. His Union's increased rate of gathering Lux is what sets off the other Unions (in varying degrees of reluctance) into doing likewise, which would further aggravate tensions between Unions.
* FightingYourFriend: Chirithy mentions that he and Ava have a close friendship with one another. [[spoiler:Nonetheless, they have to go to war against each other during the Keyblade War.]]
* GodzillaThreshold: He believes he needs to cross this by summoning Kingdom Hearts, a forbidden act, because of the untold damage it would cause, so that the Master will return to them and explain the purpose of their missions.
* LonerTurnedFriend: Gula is this to Ava, seeing how Chirithy describes them as close friends even though Gula is described as a lone wolf.
* SevenDeadlySins: ''Gula'' is Latin for gluttony.
* TheSmartGuy: When the Master gives him his role, he's the first to note and explain its brilliance, which ends up deflating the Master, as he'd thus been denied the chance to explain the scheme.
* TagalongKid: Owing to the ongoing rule that TeensAreShort, he appears to be the youngest of the Foretellers, alongside Ava.

** When Aced doubts the Master of Masters' wisdom, Invi angrily retaliates with violence resulting in a fight atop Daybreak Town's rooftops. This serves as the first sign to the player character that there is a rising friction between the unions.
* TheFaceless: As mentioned above, all Foretellers have hints of this with their mask, but she takes it a step further and wears a mouth obscuring scarf as well.

Cat-like creatures that serves as companions to players, working with the Keyblade wielders to help drive back the darkness.
----
* BondCreatures: Chirithy's fate seems to be tied to the fate of the Keyblade wielder.
* CantLiveWithoutYou: Chirithy will disappear if the Keyblade wielder they're bound to disappears or falls to darkness.
* DeadpanSnarker: Aside from his general cuteness and role as MrExposition, his other shtick is throwing quips whenever he can.
* DreamWeaver: Can influence the dreams of Keyblade wielders. [[spoiler:They ''are'' Dream Eaters, after all.]]
* EverythingsBetterWithPlushies: It's not immediately apparent due to ''χ''[='=]s art style, but ''Back Cover''[='=]s 3D render reveals that Chirithy is basically a living plushie.
* ExpositionFairy: To the player.
* OneSteveLimit: Averted. There's a Chirithy for every Keyblade wielder in the Unions (including the Foretellers, according to Back Cover), and they all refer to each other as Chirithy. Then again, it is their [[ADogNamedDog species name]].
* RidiculouslyCuteCritter: Just ''look at him.'' Taken UpToEleven in ''Back Cover'', revealing his fully-rendered model is a ''plush!'' The Master intentionally created them to be as absurdly cute as possible so that the Keyblade wielders wouldn't hesitate in keeping them around.

-->Voiced by: Creator/TomokazuSugita (Japanese), Ray Chase (English)
-->'''Appearances:''' ''[[VideoGame/KingdomHeartsX Kingdom Hearts X(chi)]]'' | ''Kingdom Hearts X(chi) Back Cover''

The enigmatic master of the Foretellers. It is said that he has an eye that allows him to see what lies in the future.
----
* AmbiguouslyEvil: It's ''really'' hard to pin down just what the Master's intentions were. He loves saying heroic things like "May your hearts be your guiding key," is well-regarded by the Foretellers who are variably heroic in their own ways, and he's pretty friendly and easy-going. But Luxu helps to set up the Keyblade War on his orders, and the Master was the original owner of Xehanort's Keyblade and wears what would become Xehanort's signature black coat, which casts shadows on his actions.
* ArcWords: He knows the writing on the final page of the Book of Prophecies: "Darkness will prevail and light expire."
** He also provides some new arc words that also crop up in ''0.2'' and probably in ''III'': "May your heart be your guiding key."
* BatmanGambit: The less-charitable interpretation of his actions in ''Back Cover'' is that he deliberately organized the Foretellers in a way that would ensure they would turn against one another, by giving them tasks custom-made for playing off their respective character flaws. Being able to see the future is cheating when it comes to setting up this sort of gambit, of course.
* BewareTheSillyOnes: He seems like a bit of a goofball, but he's said to be one of, if not ''the'', most powerful being seen in the series so far.
* BlackCloak: He wears one of the very same design that would be favored by Organization XIII though his [[https://twitter.com/sonzaisinaimono/status/741263644202143744 zipper]] sports a Dream Eater or Unversed or the X-Blade [[http://orig13.deviantart.net/59e4/f/2013/250/e/b/kingdom_hearts_symbol_brushes_by_shuzzy-d2pkq6b.png symbol]].
* BunnyEarsLawyer: Is ''the'' most powerful Keyblade Master there is, and that's nothing to say of the fact that he can see into the future. That said, he's got an extremely laid-back and quirky personality.
* CastingAShadow: His method of summoning his black Keyblade is the same as Xehanort's is later, forming it from darkness and black lightning. [[spoiler:Dream Eaters]] are formed from darkness, and he created Chirithy. Tellingly, he also wears the same Darkness-shielding coat as the Organization, rather than the lavish robes given to each of his apprentices.
* DeadpanSnarker:
-->'''Ira:''' Isn't it our duty as Keyblade wielders to prevent this war from taking place?
-->'''Master of Masters:''' [[LittleNo Nah, not possible.]]
* GreaterScopeVillain: If he ''is'' evil, that is. While he apparently plays no part in the events of the main story and is long gone by the time Xehanort comes around, the Master's actions caused the Keyblade War in the first place and in turn set the entire franchise in motion.
* InTheHood: He is first seen to be wearing a hood over his head as part of his BlackCloak.
* MagicalEye: He is said to have an eye that is able to see into the future. [[spoiler:He's actually referring to the Gazing Eye that adorns several weapons in the series including Xehanort's Keyblade. He claims that as long as it keeps getting passed down through the ages, he'll be able to see what it sees and that's how he can see the future.]]
* LargeHam: This man absolutely loves his grandiose and over-the-top speeches, and actually gets ''very'' [[AdultChild pouty and sulky]] when he's denied them. It helps that both TomokazuSugita and Ray Chase [[ChewingTheScenery chew the hell out of every line they're given.]]
* ManChild: In-between saying cryptic things and acting suspiciously, he comes across as ''extremely'' childish and giddy.
* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: The ''only'' time he's ever fully serious on-screen is when he gives Ava the role of forming the Dandelions, showing that she's just about the only one (except maybe Luxu) that he has full faith in.
* TheFaceless: Like all characters that wear a BlackCloak with a [[InTheHood hood]] over his head.
* SelfFulfillingProphecy: He tells Luxu to [[spoiler:pass down the Keyblade with the Gazing Eye in it]] so he can see the future, and then immediately lampshades that since he can already see the future now, it means Luxu does a good job carrying out the order.
* SigilSpam: [[spoiler:The Gazing Eye on numerous weapons, including Xehanort's Keyblade, Vanitas's Void Gear, and Riku's Soul Eater and Way to the Dawn, is the Master's eye.]]
* SpontaneousWeaponCreation[=/=]UltimateBlacksmith: WordOfGod for Back Cover is that he created his own Keyblades, using his knowledge of the X-Blade to draw them out from hearts, rather than forging or tempering them. Presumably this makes him the ultimate source of all Keyblades in the series thus far, with the exception of the X-Blade itself.
* TomesOfProphecyAndFate: Using his precognitive powers he created the Book of Prophecies and gave a copy to five of his six followers, the Foretellers.
* {{Troll}}: In tandem with his manchild tendencies, he's constantly having fun at the expense of the Foretellers, though in harmless ways; he just likes teasing them.
* UnwittingInstigatorOfDoom: Presuming it wasn't intentional (see AmbiguouslyEvil), anyway. Giving the five Foretellers each a secret role to play in regards to their group dynamic, and then telling them that one of the group will betray the others, serves to drive them to suspicion as they all begin to suspect each other for acting strangely, when each of them is just doing as they were told.
* YouCantFightFate: He doesn't believe it is possible to avoid the Keyblade War seeing as how "the future is already written". He even says that he doesn't believe his own students with their unions can stop the war. This might also be why he told Ava to create the Dandelions, since while the Keyblade War is inevitable, he can at least ensure there would be survivors left to rebuild in the aftermath.
** This is however [[JustifiedTrope Justified]] due to how his ability to see the future works, rather than seeing things that ''may'' happen, he can see the future because of his connection with his Keyblade, a bond that transcends time and space,and thus so as long as the Keyblade and it's eye remain intact he'll be able to see everything, and thus he is not seeing things ''may'' happen, he is seeing things that '''''already happened'''''

A Keyblade wielder from Ephemer's Union. She wants to assist the player in discovering the truth.
----
* TheChosenMany: Not just as a Keyblade wielder, but [[spoiler:Ava offers her a place in the Dandelions, her group of Keyblade wielders with strong hearts from all Unions, selected to survive the Keyblade War]].
* DreamingOfThingsToCome: [[spoiler:Ephemer tells her that the world is going to end.]]
* {{Expy}}: Shares a striking physical resemblance and shared motives ([[spoiler: servant to an AllLovingHeroine, protecting people she cares about from a tragedy she knoes is coming]] to [[{{HigurashiWhenTheyCry}} Rika Furude]].
* HeroicBSOD: Has a small one at the revelation that Heartless are fallen humans.
* IJustWantToHaveFriends: She started a party in her Union to make friends, but no one joined. That is, until Ephemer, and the two started to become close. But then the party grew, and they saw each other less and less, culminating in Ephemer leaving the party, saying that Skuld should be happy now. But after he left, she lost the joy of being in a party.
* JumpedAtTheCall: [[spoiler:She eagerly accepts Ava's offer of joining the Dandelions, and is baffled when the protagonist asks to think it over.]]
* MeaningfulName: Skuld is the name of the [[Myth/NorseMythology Norn of the Future.]] She was also one of the {{valkyries}} in two poems. [[spoiler: Fitting, she seems to come for a (dying?) player at the end of the browser game and they initially mistake her for a goddess.]]

-->'''Appearances:''' ''[[VideoGame/KingdomHeartsX Kingdom Hearts X(chi)]]''

The sixth apprentice to the Master of Masters. The original user of Master Xehanort's Keyblade.
----
* {{Adorkable}}: Despite his appearance (that is, wearing a coat that every other villain in the franchise has worn) and the fact that he carries a weapon that will ultimately cause untold damage, Luxu is just an ordinary kid who, like everyone else, the Master absolutely ''loves'' to tease. His reaction to finding out that his keyblade has one of the Master's eyes embedded onto it is to jump back and scream "Eww!"
* AncestralWeapon: His Keyblade would be passed down a MasterApprenticeChain until it eventually reached Xehanort.
* BecauseDestinySaysSo: Or rather, because the Master of Masters says destiny says so.
* BlackCloak: Wears a black coat, implying he has less than noble intentions.
* TheFaceless: His face is never shown, as it's covered by the shade of his black coat's hood.
* InTheHood: He's only seen with his hood on, preventing his face from being visible.
* KungFuSonicBoom: Resulted from Luxu blocking Ava's attack. This shockwave made a clock in Daybreak Town toll, signalling that the Keyblade War was soon to begin.
* PunchClockVillain: He generally follows the [[BecauseDestinySaysSo script that was given to him]], but if his tone is anything to go by, he ''really'' doesn't like it.
* SecretKeeper: In addition to observing everything to come with the Gazing Eye, he is tasked with keeping a mysterious "X Super" suitcase safe and to make sure it's never opened. And it's also assumed that he knows the identity of the traitor.
* SevenDeadlySins: Just like the Master's other apprentices, his name is derived from the Latin name of one of the deadly sins. "Luxu" is short for ''luxuria'': lust.
* SixthRangerTraitor: Possibly, when Ava questions him if he is a traitor, he [[{{Hammerspace}} summons]] [[TalkToTheFist his]] [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/tumblr_o9y2couuek1t234ouo1_1280.jpg Keyblade]] but what follows [[FadeToBlack isn't shown.]] When we next see them, Luxu has finished talking about what he knows about the traitor, so it's still ambiguous who the traitor is.
* TheWatcher: His assigned mission, to basically watch from the sidelines and use the Gazing Eye in his Keyblade to watch events unfold (as seen in his cameo at the beginning of ''Birth by Sleep 0.2'', where he watches the aftermath of the Keyblade War from afar).

!The Foretellers

A group of five Keyblade Masters from the era of the Keyblade War. They were each given a volume of the Book of Prophecies from their Master, which foretells that Light will fall to the Darkness. To prevent this, each leads a Union of Keyblade wielders who are sent out to protect the worlds from darkness. They also believe one amongst them is a traitor to the others, as the last page of the Book of Prophecies is missing.

----
* AnimalMotifs: Each Foreteller has a unique mask representing the Union they lead, which all have their own patron animal.
** Ava: Foxes
** Ira: Unicorns
** Aced: Bears
** Gula: Leopards
** Invi: Snakes
* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: The Foretellers aren't just Keyblade Masters, they're ''the'' Keyblade Masters. The originals. And as expected, they are the toughest bosses in the game outside event raid bosses.
** For reference, [[spoiler:when they battle the player in the opening stages of the Keyblade War, they simply remark that you're a remarkably strong Keyblade Wielder, implying that they weren't even going all out against you, before moving on while you keel over out of exhaustion.]]
* BigBadFriend: All Foretellers know that one of their number is a traitor.
* BigDamnHeroes: The Foreteller of the Union the player chooses first appears to save the player from a Darkside.
* CoolMask: The Union animal masks.
* TheFaceless: Almost. Their faces are completely obscured by their masks, but we can read their expressions somewhat by the fact that the lower half of their faces are still visible. Invi however covers her mouth with a scarf in addition to the standard mask and hood combo, leaving her almost entirely as this.
* FatalFlaw: All of them have a certain flaw to their personalities that drive a wedge between them due to their particular roles. However, the one thing they all share is their almost blind faith in the Master's teachings, with disagreements over what he told them to do sparking the conflict that leads to the Keyblade War.
* FinalBoss: [[spoiler: The final battle of [[Videogame/KingdomHeartsX Kingdom Hearts X]] is against four of the five Foretellers, one after another, as the Keyblade War rages. Whichever Union the player picks at the beginning of the game makes their chosen Foreteller TheUnfought.]]
* FiveManBand:
** TheLeader: Ira
** TheBigGuy[=/=]TheRival[[labelnote:*]] Also tasked with being TheLancer, but fails[[/labelnote]]: Aced
** TheSneakyGuy[=/=]TheLancer[[labelnote:*]]Acts as TheConsigliere to Ira since Aced fails to[[/labelnote]]: Invi
** TheSmartGuy[=/=]TagalongKid: Gula
** TheHeart[=/=]TheChick[[labelnote:*]]May also qualify as TheHero, being the most outwardly helpful Foreteller.[[/labelnote]]: Ava
* InTheHood: Each Foreteller wears a hooded, embroidered cloak.
* SevenDeadlySins: The theme of the Foretellers' names.
** NonIndicativeName: None of the apprentices' personalities fit the sin of their namesake. For example, despite being named after the sin of sloth, Aced better embodies wrath, the sin Ira is named after.
* ShoutOut: Their AnimalMotif is mostly a reference to the ''Ancrene Wisse''. Gula is an exception, being a leopard rather than a sow (a female pig), and the other two, scorpion of lust and lion of pride, are unaccounted for and presumably apply to Luxu (also an exception - his motif is a goat) and the Master of Masters respectively.

Ava is the youngest of the Foretellers and can more easily form friendships with the Keyblade Wielders. She has a kind personality and is leader of the Vulpes union.

----
* AnimalMotifs: Foxes represent the Vulpes union. [[spoiler:This is reflected in her deceitful (albeit well-intentioned) choice to create the Dandelions without the other Foreteller's knowledge. However, it's later revealed that she did so on the Master's orders.]]
* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: It's probably a good idea to save up some Jewels before your first fight with Ava. [[ThatOneBoss You're gonna end up spending several hundred on continues alone...]]
* BigGood: So far, Ava is shaping up to be this as she is taking matters into her own hands to make ''something'' salvageable out of the whole war - all without the other Foretellers' knowledge.
* TheChessmaster: Ava, [[spoiler:recognizing the coming Keyblade War and taking steps to preserve Keyblade wielders with strong hearts against the destruction it will bring, all without the knowledge of the other four Foretellers.]]
* CutenessProximity: When the Master shows the Foretellers the first baby Chirithy he brewed up, Ava just ''melts'' at the sight of it. Out of all them, she also appears to have the closest relationship with the Chirities (or at least the Player's).
* DividedWeFall: Even though she is the most levelheaded of the Foretellers when it comes to the issue of the traitor, Ava still unwittingly goes behind everyoneís back by creating the secret Dandelion union, despite that being her assigned mission.
** In ''Back Cover'', Ava angrily confronts Invi about her actions, accusing her of making things worse. Invi tries to turn it on her by citing the Dandelion union, but backs off apologetically when Ava reveals she was ordered to.
** She and Gula are also approached by Aced to form an alliance against the other unions, but she's the only one who declines. She later declines to help Gula's drastic plan to summon Kingdom Hearts in the hopes of forcing their Master to return.
** Later on, while racing to de-escalate the confrontation between Aced and Gula, Ava laments this very trope.
** She does still does something that's not in accord with her mission, namely attacking Luxu when she finds him and fails to interrogate him.
* FinalBoss: [[spoiler: If the player is not a member of her union, then she is the last master they encounter in the war.]]
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: Unwittingly strikes the first blow in the Keyblade War against Luxu. Though to be fair, she was less concerned with fruitlessly trying to prevent it than making sure something survived the conflict.
* FightingYourFriend: Chirithy mentions that she and Gula have a close friendship with one another. [[spoiler:Nonetheless, they have to go to war against each other during the Keyblade War.]]
* FlingALightIntoTheFuture: Ava is gathering Keyblade Wielders with strong hearts and no strong attachments to the Unions in order to prepare for [[spoiler:the Keyblade War--not to fight, but to send them away so that they can survive and rebuild.]]
* MasterOfIllusion: [[spoiler:And she's rather fond of using those powers for secret tests.]]
* NiceGirl: Ava is an absolute ''sweetheart.'' Despite the occasional manipulation, everything she does is to keep everyone else safe, and she really goes out of her way to try and keep the Foretellers together. This is also evidenced in the game itself - she's adored by even Keyblade wielders from rival unions and has a very easy time making friends.
* SecretTestOfCharacter: Ava [[spoiler:''challenges the player to battle'' when she gets the notion that they think she might be hiding something]]. Of course, it turns out to only be a test, and she doesn't really think [[spoiler:the player is accusing her]].
** [[spoiler:She later disguises herself as ''the player's Foreteller'' (or as Ira if the player is in Vulpes) and confronts the player as they snoop around the Foretellers' tower, claiming responsibility for Ephemer's disappearance and saying he was a traitor. This incites the player to challenge the Foreteller to battle to defend their friend, thereby proving to Ava the strength of their heart.]]
* SevenDeadlySins: Ava is short for ''avaritia'' (greed).
* WhatTheHellHero:
** Ava calls Invi out for making things worse than they already are.
** Subjected to one by the player [[spoiler:if she is the final boss. It amounts to "I've been looking for you. Why are you even participating in this battle when you were the one who set up the alternative?"]]

Ira reliably leads the Unicornis union with a steady and serious personality.

----
* AnimalMotifs: Unicorns represent the Unicornis union.
* BigDamnHeroes: After tensions run high between the unions Aced attacks the player character only to be stopped by Ira.
* DividedWeFall: Ira is the one who first reports of the existence of the traitor after noticing the absence of a page in the Book of Prophecies, inadvertently starting the paranoia within the Foretellers.
** He and Aced are shown to have a very strenuous relationship right from the revelation of the traitorís existence onwards. This only escalates more the further the tensions between the unions rise, resulting in a confrontation in the Fountain Square in Daybreak Town and a declaration of war between their unions. At one point, it is slightly mended when Ira is the only Foreteller that doesn't challenge Aced and helps him up in the back alley, and the latter warns the former of Gula's own treachery. It doesn't last, of course.
* FinalBoss: [[spoiler: If the player is a member of Vulpes, then he is the last master they encounter in the war.]]
* TheLeader: Even though the five Unions each have their own leader and general autonomy, the Master appointed Ira as the overall leader in his absence.
* LightEmUp: He summons a holographic projection of the Nightmare Chirithy.
* NiceGuy: He comes off as very stoic and sometimes even cold, but he still sees the best in everyone. Even after all the damage Aced caused, Ira doesn't hesitate in helping him out after finding him injured in a back alley.
* SevenDeadlySins: ''Ira'' is Latin for wrath.
* WhatTheHellHero: Ira calls out Aced when the Ursus union leader [[spoiler:beats down on the ''X'' protagonist]]. In his opinion Aced, as a Keyblade Master, has no business [[spoiler:raising his weapon against a subordinate Keyblade Wielder]].
* WideEyedIdealist: Comes across as this, [[YouCantFightFate especially in the Master's eyes.]] Regardless of what the Master told, Ira still believes the world can be saved and the Keyblade War can be averted. In response, the Master just half-mockingly wishes him good luck and walks away.
** YouCantFightFate: Doesn't still quite believe this, but at least understood his Master's words that their responsibility isn't to stop the War from happening, only to ensure that light survives the aftermath.

With his daring, self-righteous personality Aced sometimes hotheadedly confronts the other Foretellers. Leads the Ursus union on his quest for more power.

----
* AnimalMotifs: Bears represent the Ursus union.
* TheBigGuy: The most physically imposing of the Foretellers, his fighting style in ''Back Cover'' involves the most brute force and property damage.
* TheComicallySerious: Due to his serious and over-bearing personality, [[{{Troll}} the Master]] loves absolutely nothing more than to yank his chain at every chance he gets.
* TheConsigliere: His role given to him by the Master is to act as Ira's right-hand man, and someone who occasionally needs to give him a push now and again. Needless to say, [[EpicFail he's beyond terrible at it.]]
* CurbStompBattle: [[spoiler:Aced ''whales'' on the ''X'' protagonist at the fountain square. He only stops when they collapse from exhaustion and Ira shows up.]]
* DividedWeFall: Aced is fervently searching the traitor and in the process antagonizing most of his fellow Foretellers.
** Right from the revelation of the traitorís existence he and Ira continuously seem to upset one another. This eventually results in an armed confrontation between them in the Daybreak Town Fountain Square and a subsequent declaration of war.
** After doubting the Master of Masterís wisdom, he and Invi fight each other atop Daybreak Townís rooftop. This serves as the first sign to the player character that there is a rising friction between the unions.
** Aced plans to form an alliance against Invi and Ira with other foretellers, but things seem to go south resulting in another fight, this time between him and Gula.
* TheHeavy: While he is not yet shown to be the traitor, his actions serve to continuously deepen the friction between the Foretellers. He is involved in almost every confrontation and is the most antagonistic force working against the player character.
** Part of the job the Master of Masters gave him is to stir the others into action. Arguably he does that too well.
* {{Jerkass}}: Out of all the Foretellers, Aced is the most outwardly unpleasant. Aggressive, dismissive of everyone around him, outright hostile to the player, and actively picks fights with his fellow Foretellers, you'd be pressed to think that ''he's'' the traitor. But in truth, it's his obsession to find the traitor that makes him so dickish.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Yes, he's an absolute dick and picks fights with just about everyone, but in his heart he just does what he thinks is right. It takes him a ''long time'' to realize that beating the crap out of Keyblade wielders and his fellow Foretellers is the wrong way of going about it and just makes ''him'' seem suspicious more than anything else.
* TheLancer: The Master of Masters gave him the role of supporting [[TheLeader Ira]].
** TheStarscream: The Master accuses him of being jealous of Ira, and encourages him to step up if Ira can't get the job done.
* LeaderWannabe: His conversation with the Master pretty much has him stammering regarding him Ira's role as TheLeader and how Aced is to be his second, with [[FreudianSlip Aced nervously stating that he wouldn't mind being the leader if the Master asked him for it.]] He changes his mind once he's told that his role was the most important and that he'll be the true leader of the Foretellers if Ira doesn't step up to the task.
* SevenDeadlySins: Aced is short for ''acedia'' (sloth).
* ThisIsUnforgivable: Betrayal of any kind. He didn't believe that there were was a traitor at first, which caused him to see Ira as a BrokenPedestal for most of the story. His fight with Invi [[spoiler:was caused by her convincing Gula to break his alliance with him. Finally, Gula gets a CurbStompBattle from Aced after finding out that he had the Lost Page that described the existence of a traitor and kept it a secret to the other Foretellers, which resulted in them fighting each other.]]
* WhatTheHellHero: Aced calls Ira a fool for revealing the existence of a traitor to the entire group.
* YouWillNotEvadeMe: During a battle scene in ''Back Cover'', Aced is revealed to possess the ability to manipulate spacial vacuums. He does so by firing {{Sword Beam}}s at Invi that transform into vacuums to pull her towards him.

-->'''Appearances''': ''[[VideoGame/KingdomHeartsX Kingdom Hearts X(chi)]]'' | ''Kingdom Hearts X(chi) Back Cover''

One of the five powerful and mysterious Keyblade Masters from the era of the Keyblade War. A lone-wolf who values the individual over any fellowship. He leads the Leopardos union with a cool head and an aloof attitude.

----
* AnimalMotifs: Leopards represent the Leopardos union.
* CombatPragmatist: Attempts to finish off Aced when he thinks he's weak from previous battles. [[spoiler:Doesn't work out.]]
* DividedWeFall: Being already the coldest of the Foretellers, the revelation of the traitor only convinces Gula that there is no one he can trust.
** He is approached by Aced to form an alliance, but the negotiations turn sour resulting in an armed confrontation between him and the Ursus union leader.
** Failing that, and in desperation for an explanation from their absent Master, he states his intention to Ava to summon Kingdom Hearts as a way to call back their Master, through collecting more and more Lux. Aghast at the extreme measure just for that purpose, Ava has to sorrowfully decline helping him. His Union's increased rate of gathering Lux is what sets off the other Unions (in varying degrees of reluctance) into doing likewise, which would further aggravate tensions between Unions.
* FightingYourFriend: Chirithy mentions that he and Ava have a close friendship with one another. [[spoiler:Nonetheless, they have to go to war against each other during the Keyblade War.]]
* GodzillaThreshold: He believes he needs to cross this by summoning Kingdom Hearts, a forbidden act, because of the untold damage it would cause, so that the Master will return to them and explain the purpose of their missions.
* LonerTurnedFriend: Gula is this to Ava, seeing how Chirithy describes them as close friends even though Gula is described as a lone wolf.
* SevenDeadlySins: ''Gula'' is Latin for gluttony.
* TheSmartGuy: When the Master gives him his role, he's the first to note and explain its brilliance, which ends up deflating the Master, as he'd thus been denied the chance to explain the scheme.
* TagalongKid: Owing to the ongoing rule that TeensAreShort, he appears to be the youngest of the Foretellers, alongside Ava.
* WhatTheHellHero: Gets a pretty massive one from the other Foretellers, ''especially'' Aced, due to keeping [[spoiler:the Lost Page to himself, which details the betrayal. He ultimately had to since those were his orders directly from the Master.]]
** From Ava, too, when he expresses his desire to [[spoiler:summon Kingdom Hearts in order to bring the Master of Masters back to them.]] In hindsight, Gula may be the reason the Keyblade War turned out the way it did.

-->Voiced by: Creator/KanaHanazawa (Japanese) Karissa Lee Staples (''EN'')
-->'''Appearances''': ''[[VideoGame/KingdomHeartsX Kingdom Hearts X(chi)]]'' | ''Kingdom Hearts X(chi) Back Cover''

One of the five powerful and mysterious Keyblade Masters from the era of the Keyblade War. A noble woman who follows the Masterís teachings with absolute faith. She leads the Anguis union with unwavering prudence.

----
* AnimalMotifs: Snakes represent the Anguis union.
* ApologeticAttacker: Sincerely apologizes to the [[spoiler:player character during their confrontation in the Keyblade Graveyard.]]
* DividedWeFall: As the most fervent follower of the Master of Masters' words, she believes the traitor will lead to the Keyblade War.
** While we don't know which actions she undertakes, she is confronted by Ava and accused of making things worse.
** When Aced doubts the Master of Masters' wisdom, Invi angrily retaliates with violence resulting in a fight atop Daybreak Town's rooftops. This serves as the first sign to the player character that there is a rising friction between the unions.
* TheFaceless: As mentioned above, all Foretellers have hints of this with their mask, but she takes it a step further and wears a mouth obscuring scarf as well.
* KnightTemplar: Follows the Master of Masters' words with absolute conviction.
* MakingASplash: Back Cover shows her using water as a propulsion system in order to overwhelm Aced.
* SevenDeadlySins: Invi is short for ''invidia'' (envy).
* TheSneakyGuy: Her official role is to watch over the others and mediate conflicts, but it comes across as spying on them and sabotaging Alliances.

-->'''Appearances''': ''[[VideoGame/KingdomHeartsX Kingdom Hearts X(chi)]]'' | ''Kingdom Hearts X(chi) Back Cover''

Cat-like creatures that serves as companions to players, working with the Keyblade wielders to help drive back the darkness.
----
* BondCreatures: Chirithy's fate seems to be tied to the fate of the Keyblade wielder.
* CantLiveWithoutYou: Chirithy will disappear if the Keyblade wielder they're bound to disappears or falls to darkness.
* DeadpanSnarker: Aside from his general cuteness and role as MrExposition, his other shtick is throwing quips whenever he can.
* DreamWeaver: Can influence the dreams of Keyblade wielders. [[spoiler:They ''are'' Dream Eaters, after all.]]
* EverythingsBetterWithPlushies: It's not immediately apparent due to ''χ''[='=]s art style, but ''Back Cover''[='=]s 3D render reveals that Chirithy is basically a living plushie.
* ExpositionFairy: To the player.
* OneSteveLimit: Averted. There's a Chirithy for every Keyblade wielder in the Unions (including the Foretellers, according to Back Cover), and they all refer to each other as Chirithy. Then again, it is their [[ADogNamedDog species name]].
* RidiculouslyCuteCritter: Just ''look at him.'' Taken UpToEleven in ''Back Cover'', revealing his fully-rendered model is a ''plush!'' The Master intentionally created them to be as absurdly cute as possible so that the Keyblade wielders wouldn't hesitate in keeping them around.
* SigilSpam: [[spoiler:They have Spirit Dream Eater emblems on their backs.]]

A fellow Keyblade wielder from a rival Union. Along with the player he wishes to find the truth behind collecting Lux.
----
* AmbiguousSituation: He disappears into Daybreak Town's castle during the night while apologizing to the Player.
* BigDamnHeroes: You meet him by saving him from an Invisible.
* FlowerMotifs: Dandelions. (...Well, ''weed'' motif if you want to be technical.)
* FriendlyRival: He's a member of the protagonist's rival Union, but there's no bad blood between the two of them at all.
* MakesUsEven: He returns the favor for saving him by rescuing the player from a Heartless.
* NiceGuy: Just an all-around decent guy who tries to lift the spirits of everyone he meets.
* PromotionNotPunishment: [[spoiler:His hunt for the truth led not to punishment from the Foretellers, but a place as leader of the Dandelions when Ava stays behind.]]
* SupportingLeader: [[spoiler: Is the one leading the Dandelions]]
* TalkingInYourDreams: Appears to the player [[spoiler:and Skuld]] in dreams.

-->Voiced by: Creator/TomokazuSugita (Japanese), Ray Chase (English)
-->'''Appearances:''' ''[[VideoGame/KingdomHeartsX Kingdom Hearts X(chi)]]'' | ''Kingdom Hearts X(chi) Back Cover''

The enigmatic master of the Foretellers. It is said that he has an eye that allows him to see what lies in the future.
----
* AmbiguouslyEvil: It's ''really'' hard to pin down just what the Master's intentions were. He loves saying heroic things like "May your hearts be your guiding key," is well-regarded by the Foretellers who are variably heroic in their own ways, and he's pretty friendly and easy-going. But Luxu helps to set up the Keyblade War on his orders, and the Master was the original owner of Xehanort's Keyblade and wears what would become Xehanort's signature black coat, which casts shadows on his actions.
* ArcWords: He knows the writing on the final page of the Book of Prophecies: "Darkness will prevail and light expire."
** He also provides some new arc words that also crop up in ''0.2'' and probably in ''III'': "May your heart be your guiding key."
* BatmanGambit: The less-charitable interpretation of his actions in ''Back Cover'' is that he deliberately organized the Foretellers in a way that would ensure they would turn against one another, by giving them tasks custom-made for playing off their respective character flaws. Being able to see the future is cheating when it comes to setting up this sort of gambit, of course.
* BewareTheSillyOnes: He seems like a bit of a goofball, but he's said to be one of, if not ''the'', most powerful being seen in the series so far.
* BlackCloak: He wears one of the very same design that would be favored by Organization XIII though his [[https://twitter.com/sonzaisinaimono/status/741263644202143744 zipper]] sports a Dream Eater or Unversed or the X-Blade [[http://orig13.deviantart.net/59e4/f/2013/250/e/b/kingdom_hearts_symbol_brushes_by_shuzzy-d2pkq6b.png symbol]].
* BunnyEarsLawyer: Is ''the'' most powerful Keyblade Master there is, and that's nothing to say of the fact that he can see into the future. That said, he's got an extremely laid-back and quirky personality.
* CastingAShadow: His method of summoning his black Keyblade is the same as Xehanort's is later, forming it from darkness and black lightning. [[spoiler:Dream Eaters]] are formed from darkness, and he created Chirithy. Tellingly, he also wears the same Darkness-shielding coat as the Organization, rather than the lavish robes given to each of his apprentices.
* DeadpanSnarker:
-->'''Ira:''' Isn't it our duty as Keyblade wielders to prevent this war from taking place?
-->'''Master of Masters:''' [[LittleNo Nah, not possible.]]
* GreaterScopeVillain: If he ''is'' evil, that is. While he apparently plays no part in the events of the main story and is long gone by the time Xehanort comes around, the Master's actions caused the Keyblade War in the first place and in turn set the entire franchise in motion.
* InTheHood: He is first seen to be wearing a hood over his head as part of his BlackCloak.
* MagicalEye: He is said to have an eye that is able to see into the future. [[spoiler:He's actually referring to the Gazing Eye that adorns several weapons in the series including Xehanort's Keyblade. He claims that as long as it keeps getting passed down through the ages, he'll be able to see what it sees and that's how he can see the future.]]
* LargeHam: This man absolutely loves his grandiose and over-the-top speeches, and actually gets ''very'' [[AdultChild pouty and sulky]] when he's denied them. It helps that both TomokazuSugita and Ray Chase [[ChewingTheScenery chew the hell out of every line they're given.]]
* ManChild: In-between saying cryptic things and acting suspiciously, he comes across as ''extremely'' childish and giddy.
* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: The ''only'' time he's ever fully serious on-screen is when he gives Ava the role of forming the Dandelions, showing that she's just about the only one (except maybe Luxu) that he has full faith in.
* TheFaceless: Like all characters that wear a BlackCloak with a [[InTheHood hood]] over his head.
* SelfFulfillingProphecy: He tells Luxu to [[spoiler:pass down the Keyblade with the Gazing Eye in it]] so he can see the future, and then immediately lampshades that since he can already see the future now, it means Luxu does a good job carrying out the order.
* SigilSpam: [[spoiler:The Gazing Eye on numerous weapons, including Xehanort's Keyblade, Vanitas's Void Gear, and Riku's Soul Eater and Way to the Dawn, is the Master's eye.]]
* SpontaneousWeaponCreation[=/=]UltimateBlacksmith: WordOfGod for Back Cover is that he created his own Keyblades, using his knowledge of the X-Blade to draw them out from hearts, rather than forging or tempering them. Presumably this makes him the ultimate source of all Keyblades in the series thus far, with the exception of the X-Blade itself.
* TomesOfProphecyAndFate: Using his precognitive powers he created the Book of Prophecies and gave a copy to five of his six followers, the Foretellers.
* {{Troll}}: In tandem with his manchild tendencies, he's constantly having fun at the expense of the Foretellers, though in harmless ways; he just likes teasing them.
* UnwittingInstigatorOfDoom: Presuming it wasn't intentional (see AmbiguouslyEvil), anyway. Giving the five Foretellers each a secret role to play in regards to their group dynamic, and then telling them that one of the group will betray the others, serves to drive them to suspicion as they all begin to suspect each other for acting strangely, when each of them is just doing as they were told.
* YouCantFightFate: He doesn't believe it is possible to avoid the Keyblade War seeing as how "the future is already written". He even says that he doesn't believe his own students with their unions can stop the war. This might also be why he told Ava to create the Dandelions, since while the Keyblade War is inevitable, he can at least ensure there would be survivors left to rebuild in the aftermath.
** This is however [[JustifiedTrope Justified]] due to how his ability to see the future works, rather than seeing things that ''may'' happen, he can see the future because of his connection with his Keyblade, a bond that transcends time and space,and thus so as long as the Keyblade and it's eye remain intact he'll be able to see everything, and thus he is not seeing things ''may'' happen, he is seeing things that '''''already happened'''''

[[folder:Skuld]]
[[quoteright:150:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/skuld.png]]
-->'''Appearances:''' ''[[VideoGame/KingdomHeartsX Kingdom Hearts X(chi)]]''

A Keyblade wielder from Ephemer's Union. She wants to assist the player in discovering the truth.
----
* TheChosenMany: Not just as a Keyblade wielder, but [[spoiler:Ava offers her a place in the Dandelions, her group of Keyblade wielders with strong hearts from all Unions, selected to survive the Keyblade War]].
* DreamingOfThingsToCome: [[spoiler:Ephemer tells her that the world is going to end.]]
* {{Expy}}: Shares a striking physical resemblance and shared motives ([[spoiler: servant to an AllLovingHeroine, protecting people she cares about from a tragedy she knoes is coming]] to [[{{HigurashiWhenTheyCry}} Rika Furude]].
* HeroicBSOD: Has a small one at the revelation that Heartless are fallen humans.
* IJustWantToHaveFriends: She started a party in her Union to make friends, but no one joined. That is, until Ephemer, and the two started to become close. But then the party grew, and they saw each other less and less, culminating in Ephemer leaving the party, saying that Skuld should be happy now. But after he left, she lost the joy of being in a party.
* JumpedAtTheCall: [[spoiler:She eagerly accepts Ava's offer of joining the Dandelions, and is baffled when the protagonist asks to think it over.]]
* MeaningfulName: Skuld is the name of the [[Myth/NorseMythology Norn of the Future.]] She was also one of the {{valkyries}} in two poems. [[spoiler: Fitting, she seems to come for a (dying?) player at the end of the browser game and they initially mistake her for a goddess.]]

--> "My mission is to inherit the secret."
-->Voiced by: Creator/KenjiroTsuda (Japanese), Creator/MaxMittelman (English)
-->'''Appearances:''' ''[[VideoGame/KingdomHeartsX Kingdom Hearts X(chi)]]''

The sixth apprentice to the Master of Masters. The original user of Master Xehanort's Keyblade.
----
* {{Adorkable}}: Despite his appearance (that is, wearing a coat that every other villain in the franchise has worn) and the fact that he carries a weapon that will ultimately cause untold damage, Luxu is just an ordinary kid who, like everyone else, the Master absolutely ''loves'' to tease. His reaction to finding out that his keyblade has one of the Master's eyes embedded onto it is to jump back and scream "Eww!"
* AncestralWeapon: His Keyblade would be passed down a MasterApprenticeChain until it eventually reached Xehanort.
* BecauseDestinySaysSo: Or rather, because the Master of Masters says destiny says so.
* BlackCloak: Wears a black coat, implying he has less than noble intentions.
* TheFaceless: His face is never shown, as it's covered by the shade of his black coat's hood.
* InTheHood: He's only seen with his hood on, preventing his face from being visible.
* KungFuSonicBoom: Resulted from Luxu blocking Ava's attack. This shockwave made a clock in Daybreak Town toll, signalling that the Keyblade War was soon to begin.
* PunchClockVillain: He generally follows the [[BecauseDestinySaysSo script that was given to him]], but if his tone is anything to go by, he ''really'' doesn't like it.
* SecretKeeper: In addition to observing everything to come with the Gazing Eye, he is tasked with keeping a mysterious "X Super" suitcase safe and to make sure it's never opened. And it's also assumed that he knows the identity of the traitor.
* SevenDeadlySins: Just like the Master's other apprentices, his name is derived from the Latin name of one of the deadly sins. "Luxu" is short for ''luxuria'': lust.
* SixthRangerTraitor: Possibly, when Ava questions him if he is a traitor, he [[{{Hammerspace}} summons]] [[TalkToTheFist his]] [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/tumblr_o9y2couuek1t234ouo1_1280.jpg Keyblade]] but what follows [[FadeToBlack isn't shown.]] When we next see them, Luxu has finished talking about what he knows about the traitor, so it's still ambiguous who the traitor is.
* TheWatcher: His assigned mission, to basically watch from the sidelines and use the Gazing Eye in his Keyblade to watch events unfold (as seen in his cameo at the beginning of ''Birth by Sleep 0.2'', where he watches the aftermath of the Keyblade War from afar).
