Other Ansem report 1
Many years of hard work has come to fruition; this world that I govern has
become a paradise, aptly named the "Radiant Garden".
Flowers bloom with a fragrant aroma, raised by the pure water which brings forth
life. The people pass their days with smiling faces full of hope.
But wherever there is light, doubtless there is darkness lurking. As I have
written in my recent report, I must decipher the mystery behind "the darkness in
human hearts" to protect this paradise.
Firstly, I will carry out experiments to seek out the depths of the human heart.
One of my six disciples, Xehanort, has volunteered himself as a test subject.
Since I found him collapsed in the street all those years ago and took him in,
he has become a youth who serves me well.
At that time, he had lost his memories entirely, but afterwards he began to
exhibit a remarkable inquisitive mind. He absorbed my teachings incredibly
quickly, and amassed a deep knowledge.
He is somewhat undeveloped in maturity, but this problem is due to his youth.
If I can seek Xehanort's heart through psychological experiments, I may also be
able to unlock his sealed-off past.
It seems that another of my disciples, Even, also has a strong interest in
But I wonder whether it is truly good that is in him.
Certainly, Xehanort possesses a rare talent...
It is far too excellent. Even surpassing that of a human.

I've made a huge mistake.
Beginning as a small psychological experiment, the research project into the "darkness of the heart" expanded rapidly. At the advice of my youngest disciple, Ienzo, I prepared a large-scale research facility beneath castle.
It was then that my six disciples secretly collected a number of test subjects, and began conducting dangerous experiments on the darkness of the heart
Upon learning of the situation, I immediately gathered my disciples, ordering them to discontinue any further research and erase the findings of the current study.
What in the world has happened to the hearts of the six men who were my loyal disciples? While chasing the mysteries of the heart's darkness, have they strayed into that darkness themselves?
But it is I who was the most foolish, for it was I who was the first to experiment. No matter what the reason, one must never tamper with the darkness in the heart's of men. I was haunted by my own mistake.
It was a visitor from another world who mended my broken heart. "Mickey" is what the small king called himself, and in his hand he held the legendary key of worlds. It was said that both prosperity and chaos were once brought to the world with this "Keyblade". He brought with him much interesting knowledge and through pleasent discussion, our friendship deepened.
With his encouragement, I decided to completely examine the data of the underground research facility.
And that's when I came across the "Ansem Report".
At the top, my name was recorded beside the number 0. Following it were the numbers 1-8, accompanied by the names of eight selfish men.
It was foolishly created, by the first test subject of my experiment.
Other Ansem report 3
The "chaos" has spread to many worlds, not just this one.
My apprentice Xehanort has, in the "Ansem Reports" which he wrote under my name,
hypothesized about the process of the terrible experiments that he carried out
and the "door" that appeared in the underground darkness.
Every living being has a heart, and in the depths of every heart there is
The same is true for "worlds". If you consider that a world has one life, it
hides a great heart...
And in its depths, an immense darkness.
Is Xehanort trying to understand the "door" to make contact with the darkness in
No, not just Xehanort.
It seems that the other five disciples, have become enveloped by the darkness as
a result of their fixation on it for their research.
Even, Ienzo, Braig, Dilan, and Elaeus...they have ceased to be human.
And I have lost everything, exiled to a nonexistent world.
Having exiled me, what could Xehanort be aiming for?
Have everyone's smiling faces gone?
As the light of hope has faded, I will now walk along with the darkness.
In the world of nothingness to which I have been exiled.
Darkness within nothingness.
"Darkness in Zero"
Therefore, I will take the name "DiZ".
I will cast aside the exile's name "Ansem"...and have my revenge.

The days spent in that beautiful paradise already seem so far as to be a vision.
How much time has passed in this world of nothingness to which I have been
In this world of nothingness where all existence has gone, I have barely managed
to keep myself intact through rage and hatred.
My heart is filled with hatred towards the disciples who were taken by the
darkness, and rage at my own foolish self who was betrayed by them.
Is this what it is like to be taken by the darkness?
I will not continue to pass this time in vain.
What are Xehanort and the others aiming for?
I must work out the mystery of the "Ansem Reports" that man wrote, stop them and
That is my mission...given to me by the world, the only way.
The key is those without a heart, the "Heartless".
Embodiments of the darkness in the heart. Accursed shadows with no hearts who
steal the hearts of all living things and multiply.
Where did they come from, and where are they going?
The three elements that compose life...the heart, the soul, the body.
When life loses the heart, what happens to the leftover soul and body?
When the soul leaves the body, which it lives in as a vessel, life dies.
But if the heart is removed, what happens?
Even if the heart is separated from the body, life is not destroyed.
The heart simply disappears into the darkness.
I have little time.
If I stay in this world indefinitely, will I both have a body and know the
My heart is already being captured by the darkness.

Other In this world where all existence is disassembled, I barely keep myself intact
through thinking and writing alone.
Even with time, this world has no meaning.
Here, eternity and an instant are the same.
I must hurry.
They have undoubtedly already begun their activity.
The key to unravelling the mystery is the "Heartless".
The six betrayers conducted the research which brought forth these accursed
They didn't just create "pure-blood" Heartless from the human heart, they used
them to artificially synthesize Heartless.
It seems that they have given these artificial Heartless a mark and called them
But whether pure-blood Heartless or Emblem, Heartless without a heart move
following an instinctve desire.
They simply seek out hearts and gather.
With a human-like opponent, all they do is they easily remove the heart and take
it into themselves, creating more companions. They do not listen to the orders
But, what about the orders of stronger Heartless?
If, for example, that man discarded his soul and body to become a Heartless,
could he not lead the naturally unleaderlike Heartless?
Furthermore, does he intend to take advantage of the Heartless' instinct?
If the Heartless, who seek out hearts, are aiming for a bigger, stronger heart,
the final objective is clear.
In this world, the greatest heart is..."the heart of the world".
Everything is just a hypothesis, but that he is using the Heartless to find the
path to the heart of the world is certain.

In the world of nothingness, my choice to walk along with the darkness was not
I did not refuse the darkness, nor did I fear it, and when I looked straight
ahead with a silent heart, I acquired a new power.
Power surpassing a human...the power of darkness.
Xehanort and the others were captivated by this power, and soon captured by it.
Naturally, I do not plan to have my heart taken and be eaten up by the darkness
as they were.
Through this new power, I discovered the "Dark Corridor", which connects the
world of nothingness to the physical world.
Going back and forth freely is still difficult, but my time of exile is at an
To prevent Xehanort and the others from recognizing me, I have taken a new form
upon my return to the world of light.
As I thought, Xehanort has become a Heartless.
Under my name he controls the Heartless, and has taken many worlds' hearts.
Xehanort wishes to use the center of the worlds' hearts he has collected, namely
"Kingdom Hearts", in an attempt to call forth a great darkness and return
everything to darkness.
Furthermore, the other five disciples have shed their bodies.
Have they become Heartless, like Xehanort?
Or did Xehanort use then and then destroy them?
While seeking the truth, I found a strange "existence".
When life loses the heart, the soul and body are left behind.
When a Heartless is created, they disappear from the world of light and are
reborn into a new existence in a completely different world.
Other Ansem Report 7
It's probably convenient for one who doesn't exist or has no darkness in their heart, but for someone who does, it would be very dangerous to use the "Dark Corridor". The darkness would eat away at their heart.
In need of a place where I can hide myself from others and advance my research and plans, I've arrived at "Twilight Town". It's a quiet town, forgotten in the time between night and day. I stopped while going through the forest, to hide out beneath an abandonned mansion for a while.
Here, I've continued my secret research, resulting in a slew of new discoveries.
When the heart gives birth to a "Heartless", the soul and body that are left behind are born in this world as a new existance. Unlike the Heartless they have consciousness, and though it's uncertain exactly what thoughts "that" entails, it seems they exist to bring confusion to the world.
While the attendants of my old friend, the King, and the Hero of the Keyblade are combatting the Heartless and the threat of Darkness together, a new threat to the world is approaching.
Another threat... For which I've created an ironic name.
"Nobody", the nonexistant ones.
Many Nobodies lose their humanoid form, like the Heartless. However, in the case of a Nobody born from the owner of a strong heart, their appearance will barely change from that of their original humanoid form.
The men who betrayed me seem to have become Nobodies that retained a humanoid form, and furthermore, have begun gathering companions in order carry out some new plan.
With the traitors at it's core, the "Organization XIII" was formed from the Nobodies of 13 people, and split into two groups. They said something about advancing research.
In order to search for the purpose behind this organization, I've decided to head to the place where six of them have gathered. Rising up over the edge of the World In-Between, the "Castle Oblivion".
Other Ansem report 8
It appears that I have been too caught up in the movements of Xehanort and the
others, and events relating to them.
Fighting between friends...the fight to protect the world of light from the
Heartless threat is over. Xehanort's Heartless, the being calling himself the
researcher of darkness, Ansem, has been destroyed.
The "Hero" who holds a different Keyblade to the King has passed through many
worlds, closed the doors' "Keyholes" and defeated the Heartless.
On the other hand, having plunged into the world of darkness, the King worked
together with the Keyblade Master to close the door between the worlds of light
and darkness, Kingdom Hearts, removing the threat of the great darkness.
But many Heartless are swarming the worlds, and the "XIII Order" and the
Nobodies are working in secret.
The worlds are still in great danger.
I must find some means to fight the worlds' enemies. That is my atonement...and
For that reason, I have infiltrated "Castle Oblivion".
From the 13th floor to the lower 12th floor, the castle's "white rooms" take and
freely change around visitors' memories.
Some of those from the XIII Order are conducting experiments on memories in this
It appears that the test subject of this experiment, a girl called "Namine",
possesses an extremely unique power.
What can emerge from this power of hers?
I have been continuing my investigations in secret without disturbing the XIII
Order. But today, a further visitor had appeared.
"Sora", the Keyblade Master who defeated Ansem, and his companions.
And there is the scent of darkness in the lower depths of the castle.
It seems that the actors in this little drama are gathering.
Other Ansem report 9
This truly is the Keyblade Master. Sora has unravelled the XIII Order's
conspiracy and rescued Namine.
Namine was a witch who controls others' memories.
It appears that she gained this ability through being born by a special process.
Namine is a girl, but was a princess.
A long time ago, when I governed the "Radiant Garden", one of the denizens was
"Kairi", one of the seven princesses who support the world of light.
There was no Heartless born from Kairi, who carries no darkness in her heart,
and her body which should have disappeared remained in the world of light.
That is to say, in the case of the Nobody called Namine, both a Heartless as
evidence of a lost heart, and a body to act as the intermediary for the creation
of a Nobody are missing. She is an extremely unstable existence, and therefore
has no memories of Kairi.
Another cause is that Kairi's heart, having been separated from her body, did
not return to the darkness, but instead found another vessel...concealed behind
That is to say, Namine is an offshoot of Kairi, who directly interfered with
Sora's heart. Because of that, she was be able to manipulate the memories of
Sora and those whose hearts are connected to his.
She is truly a "non-existent one". Without even becoming a Nobody, she has no
place to go, and is the most fickle of shadows.
Other Ansem report 10
Sora, who lost his memories in Castle Oblivion, has gone into a deep sleep to
recover them. However, I believe it will require a considerable amount of time
to recover completely the memories from his birth to the present time.
But Castle Oblivion is a place that was controlled by the XIII Order. I must
care for Sora in a safer place. I have decided to persuade Namine to help, and
take the sleeping Sora to Twilight Town to protect him.
As I wrote before, she is an extremely unique existence. Born through the same
process as a Nobody, but missing certain elements that characterise a Nobody.
That she continues to draw pictures is possibly compensating for what she
lacks...from other people's, mainly Sora's, memories.
I have formed a hypothesis.
I believe that Namine was born as a unique Nobody when Sora turned the Keyblade
on his own body and Sora and Kairi's "hearts" departed his body at the same tme.
Namine was born as Kairi's Nobody.
But to become a Nobody, Sora's body and soul were used as an intermediary...
When a person loses their heart, a Heartless with no sense of self is born, and
the leftover body and soul are used as an intermediary to give birth to a
But what about those who chose to release their heart?
Sora and Xehanort, even though they became Heartless, kept their sense of self.
And in the case of Kairi and Namine.
The exception that Kairi's heart had no darkness, and the exception that Kairi's
heart used Sora as a vessel when she lost it...The cause may be due to all of
these impossible exceptions piling up.
While Sora sleeps, I will do what I must.
A new ally has appeared, named Riku.

is already a wish that will not be fulfilled.

With the exception of Namine, Nobodies remember their time as humans.
But Sora's Nobody, "Roxas", has lost the memories of when he was Sora.
The reason for this may be that Sora spent little time as a Heartless while
Roxas was left behind as a Nobody, and returned to becoming a human with a
Somehow, Roxas is similar to Namine. While being Kairi's Nobody, Namine was born
using Sora's body and soul as an intermediary.
And Roxas was Sora's Nobody, left behind when Sora returned to being a human
through not his own heart, but using Kairi's heart as an intermediary.
I believe that Sora's memory restoration is delayed due to having lost half of

as a Nobody.
This is where Roxas met the XIII Order and became a member.
