The heartfelt tail of Kingdom Hearts over the past 12 years has become be on recognition as one of the most amazing creations to ever come to paper and game screen. Inside the game, what makes it true and different, is its complexity, passion and lives of characters of new and old, which brings a whole new generation into a world pure imagines.
Here you find the characters from both Final Fantasy and Classic Disney stories; each living out their own story while becoming vital friends, events or lessons for your main (Kingdom Heart) characters.
As the ninth game of this story, (still in waiting, not yet released) it has been told to be the closing conclusion of this complex story, beginning right back to the course of the Key Blade War. Its fate to end completely is yet to been seen, as those who had been touched and intertwined into the story now have their own destroy and story to tell. Many believe that our courage young Sora, could be the forces of a new world of Kingdom Hearts.
For starters the games doesn't work or tells the tail from 1 to 9. As a good story teller, only real course was discovered later in further games to complete your understanding; of course this is done purposely more for the fact to let gamers/viewers want to know and understand the past of their favorite characters as well as their future.

Kingdom Hearts: Birth by sleep
First you must understand the definition of the title Kingdom hearts. Essentially, Kingdom hearts is the heart shaped moon, said to be the moon of all worlds, the contention between them and the birth place of hearts. This tale truly begins off the actions of a single character. Master Xehanort.
A key blade Master that fought for the light for most of his life but surrender to the darkness in his heart once he become aware of a weapon of great power; A key blade of both dark and light, the X blade. However, the only way that this item could be created, is if pure light and dark clashes in combat.
Without anyone being aware of his betrayal, Master Xehanort gained an apprentice; Ventus.
Once Xehanort had Ventus, he separated Ventus from his dark side creating alter ego of himself. However, in the separation Ventus become lost and useless; his mind kept in the same empty realm with his broken heart.
This is a vital moment in the story line; this is where Ventus meets Sora for the first time. Sora is what we ordinal thought to be the chosen Key Blade wielder in the first Kingdom Hearts. But how he meets Sora is a unique one and personally one of my favorite moments in the games.
Sora at this every moment is not even born yet, he is a new heart that is on his way to his new body, when suddenly drawn to Ventus’s light in the distance. This is a typical event as the place where Xehanort chooses to dump Ventus is on the Destiny Lands, which is Sora’s home town.
As a kind and gentle soul, Sora takes Ventus into his heart to complete Ventus’s heart once more. unfortunately, being a part of Sora erases Ventus’s past from him.
Once Ventus had returned to ‘full’ recovery, Xehanort brought Ventus to Eraqus, another Key blade Master. Here Ventus becomes Eraqus’s pupil, along with two other young Key blade wielders. Terra and Aqua.
Over the years that pasted the trio created a strong bound, which would set off a domino effect of events once Xehanort returned to finish what he had started;searching for a younger body to carry his heart into further future years and to create the X Blade.
Both the strengths and weakness from each of the three clash and eventually set in motion the Key Blade War.
Aqua torn by two half’s of herself, a student and an honest friend to her wisdom of a master. Confided between the two she unable to see the danger before her.
Terra lost in his longing to be a great master, he quickly shows his naive side, coursing more trouble than good; quickly becoming the every opposite of who he is. The prefect vessel for Xehanort.
Ventus, his loyalty to Terra tears him away from the safety of his home, quickly leaning how to fight, which brings him face to face with his other half. Named Venitas, looking remarkably like Sora; this is simply because Sora is a part of Ventus soul, so in return he is also a part of Venitas.
All thinking that their quest was to protect the Seven Princess of Light; pure hearts that have no darkness in their hearts.
In truth it was and indeed they needed to be saved; but still all just a test to run the trio to their braking points of both fear and love. To fall harder when fighting with their hearts.
But along the way while helping those who needed it; a young world had come across all three. Those Destiny Lands, where Aqua finds two young boys; Sora and Riku. Reminding her of who she missed so dearly, and Terry only meeting Riku, finds his strength and inner wisdom a great choice for whom who one day should be a master of the key blade himself. But Ventus leaning the truth of whom and what he is to Venitas, this place is his reminder. His challenge.
Once the war had begun in the final chapters of this story, limits were tested and even with the help of Mickey. Fates draw to a standstill of questions. Who would live, who would die, and who would prevail, if any in the Key Blade Graveyard.
What had become of that night; Xehanort did indeed succeed by unlocking Terra’s darkness and entering his own heart into Terra’s, but it was Terra’s love for his friends that let him stand one last time, to through Xehanort into a mind of amnesia.
Ventus driven to fight and protect him friend’s lives, he defies Venitas and forges the X Blade.
However by given his own life, Ventus broke the X Blade into 20 pieces. And once more as his light fell away, he called out to Sora to help him. And Sora reached his hands and carried him into his heart.
Aqua on the other hand, was saved by Mickey and Yen Sid.
Choosing to protect Ventus until he wakes from his endless sleep, she took him home. The Land of Departure. Now just almost like a wasteland Aqua locks the land away, recreating it into the lost world of Oblivion. Before looking for Terra.
Whan she dose find him, she leans the horrible truth of what has consumed him. She fights him and reclaims a spark of Terra’s heart and memory; but when he tries to release it. The darkness pulls both Terra and Aqua into realm of darkness.
Aqua realizes that she couldn't save them both, so she saves Terry, leaving her lost in the unforgiving realm.
And what of Terra, lost to no memories he is found by a scientist know was Ansem the Wise. But this where Xehanort’s allies lie, hiding out as followers of Ansem, as they would take Terra aside to remind him of his fate with the X Blade. Braig.
In the end past the credits of the game lay the clues of the characters of those you known every little about, there means and reasons. How and why things had come to pass, leading the fates of the eighth game. Drop Dream Distaste.
Like it was said; In time, the worlds would be saved by these two heroes who stood beneath the same blaze of stars.
