TITLE 03: KINGDOM HEARTS KEY BACK COVER
>Let's check out the major characters weaving the tale!
The mystery-packed story of the Foretellers and the things happening behind the scenes in smartphone app KH Unchained Key is included as a cinematic work. Set in the earliest era of the series so far, a short story that is very important to the future of the KH series unfolds.
>A traitor among the five Foretellers?!
The plot unfolds with the five Foretellers, leaders of the five forces known as the Unions, at the center. With whispers that there is a traitor among them, the balance gradually collapses under suspicion and doubt.
Master of Masters
The teacher of the Foretellers. He seems to have an evasive personality, and nobody can tell whether all the off-the-wall things he says and does are simple whims, or calculations.
Ira - Unicornis Union
Someone with a solid personality, who hides his face with a unicorn mask. He's teased by the Master for being serious.
[He's studying the Heartless? There's something like a Darkside on that page.]
Gula - Leopardos Union
Someone with a cool personality, who wears a leopard mask. He doesn't have a strong sense of camaraderie, and occasionally shows an individualistic side. A lone-wolf type who hates being bound by particulars?
[It seems that the Tome of Prophecy he received from the Master contains events that will happen in the future, but...]
Ava - Vulpes Union
Someone who seems to have a kind personality, who wears a fox mask. As she is close in age to the Keyblade Wielders, they often speak to her on a friendly level.
[There's a suspicious side to the Master? What sort of resolution is in store, indeed.]
Aced - Ursus Union
Someone with a brave personality, who wears a bear mask. There's a strong side of him that cares too much about strength, and he tends to get carried away with baring his feelings and personal justice. Sometimes he even opposes his friends?
[The type to get fired up over anything? It seems as though he is the angriest upon finding out about the 'traitor'.]
Invi - Anguis Union
Someone with a noble personality, who hides her face with a snake mask. She has the utmost faith in her teacher the Master, and bases her actions as a Foreteller upon her unshakeable loyalty.
[She sometimes takes stock of the situation while concealing her true feelings? She is someone with that sort of deeply thoughtful atmosphere.]
