A massive core of energy lay beyond the door sought by the Heartless. It may be the ultimate goal of the Heartless. But what is that energy? I have devised a hypothesis, based upon my observations of the Heartless.
The Heartless feed on other’s hearts, and they yearn for that energy core. That thing beyond the door must be a heart, too—the heart of this world. There is no proof, but, having felt that immense energy, I am certain. That was the heart of the world.
The Heartless are trying to take hearts not only from all living creatures, but from the planet itself. But what do they mean to do with the heart of the world?
When I first got into KH I was in the eighth grade, thirteen years old, and incredibly dorky. I saw an advertisement for it on the Disney Channel (lol). I got my mom to buy it for me for Christmas that year. I didn’t really know what to expect of it because it looked like it was just a game based on Disney movies. Once I started getting into the storyline of it all, I was addicted. Soon COM came out, and I didn’t have a game boy so I went without that game. I got KH2 sometime after that from a friend who I knew loved the games as well.
Everyone I knew made fun of me for liking the games. When they came over my house and saw me playing one of them they started laughing and teased me. And it’s hard to make people understand the storyline of it all if they’ve never played it.
Well when I finally got COM last yr for the PS2 and 358/2 Days for the DS, and BBS for the PSP. I met a guy who liked the games too. I knew he liked em for a little while before we started dating.
I made this tumblr a few weeks ago, and I noticed how many KH tumblrs there are. And how many people really like the series. I just thought it was neat because everyone has always teased me for liking the series and I feel like I’m not the only one who’s in love with the games anymore! :)
The Heartless appear in groups, and are multiplying rapidly. I’ve provided them both living and nonliving samples. They’ve responded only to the living. They seem to multiply after absorbing something from the living creatures. Their prey vanishes without a trace.
I believe the Heartless are taking hearts. They are born from those who’ve lost their hearts, and thrive on hearts seized from others. The hearts taken by the heartless become Heartless themselves.
Though I lack proof, I am confident in this hypothesis. I must also study their behavioral principles.
Though they lack emotions, they do seem to have some intelligence. How to communicate with them?
It’s just occurred to me: Could they be the darkness in people’s hearts?
The shadows that crawl beneath the castle… Are they the people who lost their hearts, or incarnations of darkness? Or something entirely beyond my imagination?
All my knowledge has provided no answer. One thing I am sure of is that they are entirely devoid of emotion. Perhaps further study will unlock the mysteries of the heart. Fortunately, there is no shortage of test samples.
They are multiplying underground even as I write this report. They still need a name.
Those who lack hearts… I will call them the Heartless.
