…Who the hell is that guy?
Ventus is a Keyblade warrior who existed ten years before any of the stuff in the previous section went down, along with two other Keyblade warriors named Aqua and Terra. The three of them set out on a quest to find the venerable Keyblade master Xehanort, who’s probably the same Xehanort that causes all the drama in the previous section. (Hey, it’s Kingdom Hearts – you never know). Ventus is identical to Roxas, somehow connected to Sora and apparently familiar to at least one Organization XIII member.
…Why isn’t Aerith dead?
You might have to turn elsewhere for the full explanation on this – but it’s easiest just to say that Disney is the Lifestream, so don’t act surprised when dead Final Fantasy characters show up in Kingdom Hearts.
…What’s the deal with 358/2 Days?
That’s the duration of time that Roxas spends with Organization XIII before winding up in fake Twilight Town. Halfway through the last day, Riku kicks his ass.
…Just what IS Kingdom Hearts?
You know what, we have no idea. Let’s let the series try and explain it to us…
