He could be anybody. God, why does Nomura gives us so many questions and so little anwers?!

I think I thought of something truly briliant, Vanitas has nothing to do with our heroes, meaning hes not connected to any of them other than him being a villan.
I think i believe that earlier postings showed that his name could roughly be translated into Vanity correct? Well think about it what are most mad man after immortality! Vanitas is not an Unversed of Ven or anything like that he is merely a clone of Xehanort, a "YOUNGER" version of him self, he wants to be come imortal instead of aging and becoming a decrepit old man, hence where "Vanity" comes in. If you watch any of the trailers with them together they walk with the same stature and hold there bodies identically! This is how we end up with the younger Xehanort in KH 1 & 2 he is merely a replica of Xehanort himself, and after his master and him are beaten he loses his memories, MX obviously dies and he carries on his legacy!
Flame all you want but the connections are there, maybe im wrong wont know till the game comes out thats fine with me but it struck me like a bolt of lightning just like my theory as to why Roxas was Soras Nobody before KH2 came out.
Oh and if this has been thought of before close the thread
In the arts, vanitas is a type of symbolicSymbolYour wrong, the word "Vanitas" is roughly translated into emptiness in latin and was chosen for its similar look/sound to "Ventus" stated by Nomura in an interview I believe. If he had nothing to do with the heroes or Ven at least, Nomura would not have said he chose the name Vanitas because of its meaning and similarities to Ventus.
Well, Xemnas IS the Nobody of Xehanort... so it would make sense that Master Xehanort would look something like him.I'm sorry but am I the only one that thinks xemnas and MX look the same in the face? Take away the hair and you can MX.
Uh... Xehanort becomes a Nobody ONE year after BbS. Maleficent took over Hollow Bastion 9 years before KH1, so the apprentices had already turned into Nobodies by then.And to those saying hes too young to be the Xehanort in 1 & 2 dont forget that BBS is ten years before either of those games and we do not know how old Vanitas is.
And to the skeptics saying that MX cannot be defeated cause of the BBS original trailer, think about it, that was almost what four years ago, how much has the concept and the characters of BBS changed since then, yes the ending of this game is not going to be a happy one cause something yet unknown happens to our heroes
but I dont think the villans are gonna win this one or there wouldnt be a Kingdom Hearts game to begin with the worlds would have been thrown into darkness if the evil duo are not stopped.

It's simple logic. Master Xehanort looks like Xehanort. Xehanort looks like Xemnas. So MX looks like Xemnas.

So Vanitas has to be at least 28 years old at the beginning of BbS(because Nomura said Xemnas, Xehanort's Nobody, looked about 30). Does Vanitas look 28 to you? There's no way he could grow to XH's height in one year
