A beauty with brains and a pure soul to boot, Belle was initially a hostage trapped in the Beast's castle until she managed to peel off his unsavory layers and see the injured heart he hides within. An unlikely friendship grew between them, a friendship which eventually blossomed into love, but as a Princess of Heart, Belle quickly became a target for the darkness. She was kidnapped and taken to Hollow Bastion, where she was placed in a deathly slumber as her heart was used to reveal the Final Keyhole.

Belle was freed and her heart restored by Sora's sacrifice. Due to her passion for books, she was drawn to the castle library and researched a way to battle the darkness despite the overwhelming darkness threatening to consume the world. She returned home together with the Beast once the universe is saved.

Belle is a true village dame, but her intelligence and fondness for books has labelled her a social misfit. She yearns of adventures beyond her provincial life, and her wish comes true when she stumbles upon Beast's Castle and is drawn into a sincere but complicated relationship with the Beast. Her capacity to see beyond physical surfaces has helped heal the Beast's loneliness. A year previously, Belle was held hostage by malovelent forces who intended to use her abilities as a Princess of Heart to unseal the pathway to Kingdom Hearts, but has since been returned to the safety of her home through the combined efforts of the Beast and his friends.

Belle's desire to further her romance with the Beast is denied due to Xaldin, whose interference drives a wedge between them. Terrified of the Beast's cold behaviour, she enlists Sora's help to investigate, then takes matters into her own hands. She is disappointed with the Beast's lack of trust in her, forcing everybody to wonder whether the Beast and Belle would be able to sort out their issues before the deadline of the Enchantress's curse.

Sora's second visit heralds unpleasant tidings for the couple when Xaldin ruins Belle's romantic evening, then kidnaps the rose in order to provoke the Beast's anger. Fearing for her safety, the Beast closes his heart to Belle and orders her to leave the castle. Belle is firm in her stand to never leave the Beast's side, but her depressed state leaves her vunerable to Xaldin's manipulations. When her own personal safety is in jeapordy however, Belle proves that she is not just a simple village girl. By landing a well-aimed punch to Xaldin's stomach, Belle is able to ensure that the Beast does not lose both her and the rose. Once Xaldin is defeated, she finally is able to dance her long-anticipated waltz together with the Beast.
