La Cité des Cloches

First Appearance: KINGDOM HEARTS 3D: Dream Drop Distance (2012)
Origin: The Hunchback of Notre Dame (1996)

Side: Sora

While investigating an outbreak of "monsters" in the square, Sora met Quasimodo. Nightmares had Quasimodo surrounded, but he was enjoying being the King of Fools and was reluctant to leave. A gypsy named Esmeralda helped him get to safety in the cathedral.

Inside Notre Dame, Quasimodo returned the favor and helped Esmeralda escape the soldiers surrounding the cathedral by carrying her safely to the streets below. Sora learned that Judge Frollo had forbidden Quasimodo from ever leaving the cathedral, and grew concerned. He decided to seek out Quasimodo and talk to him about his predicament.

While searching for Quasimodo, Sora ran into Captain Phoebus. Phoebus was beginning to harbour doubts about Frollo's methods, and had come to warn Esmeralda and the other gypsies that they were in danger Upon hearing this, Quasimodo produced a pendant he had received from Esmeralda. The pendant would reveal the location of the gypsies' safe haven, known as the "Court of Miracles."

They found Esmeralda in the Court of Miracles, but Judge Frollo appeared, arrested Esmeralda, and knocked Sora out cold.

Sora awoke to find the city ablaze. Esmeralda had been sentenced to burn, but Quasimodo rescued her while Sora confronted a giant Nightmare.

By the time the Nightmare fell, Quasimodo had already settled matters with Judge Frollo. He had learned not to let his heart be a prison, and was ready to brave the outside world.

Alone, Sora found himself face-to-face with a grey-haired youth. The young man stayed only long enough to say: "You are the one who has made your heart a prison...even if you are not the prisoner." Confused by these words, Sora unlocked the next Sleeping Keyhole.

Side: Riku

Riku crossed paths with Esmeralda, a gypsy who was being chased by Judge Frollo and Captain Phoebus. She told Riku about the darkness that was driving Frollo.

Inside the cathedral of Notre Dame, Riku met Quasimodo. Judge Frollo was keeping Quasimodo walled up inside the cathedral, but Riku knew that the highest walls - for Quasimodo, and he himself - were around their hearts.

As Riku searched for Frollo, he was attacked by a giant Nightmare. Somehow he escaped and caught up with Frollo, who seemed to be the one controlling the Nightmares. He also found Phoebus, who was badly injured while trying to stop the judge.

The chase continued. Riku passed Quasimodo, who had just rescued Esmeralda. Riku was reassured to see how much stronger Quasimodo's heart had grown.

Frollo's heart, however, fell to darkness. Ansem and the grey-haired youth appreard a moment later to remind Riku of the darkness in his own heart. But Riku knew he was strong enough to choose his own path, and with Keyblade in hand, he drove off the giant Nightmare.

Quasimodo resolved to brave the outside world, while Riku reflected upon his past, and the future he must shape from it. He unlocked the Sleeping Keyhole.
