Ventus is the one of the three playable characters in Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep. He is a young lad that holds his keyblade is the reverse style, favoring quick strikes. He is shorter than his two older friends and has blond hair. Roxas from Kingdom Hearts II bears a striking resemblance to him. Ventus is very eager and doesn't like his continued role of being left out. Despite this, he persues them to a great extent, making more friends as he does.
Ventus is training under Master Eraqus along with Terra and Aqua to be a full Keyblade Master. At the beginning of Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep we see that he was originally the pupil of Master Xehanort, and that his heart was previously fractured before finding another to bond with to become whole.
Ventus is visited by Vanitas early on and is told that Terra is leaving, and will not be the same when he meets him again. Ventus, worried, watches Terra leave on his mission and follows after him. As playstyles go, Ventus is the quickest and strikes the fastest. He is evenly matched in magic and physical abilities. ventus is also the only character that is able to learn the Glide/Superglide abilities. During his journey he realizes that, as a student of Master Xehanort, the darkness in his heart was extracted one day and turned into vanitas. The remainder of his heart was too weak to exist. He was brought to Destiny Islands to die, but his heart came into contact with Sora's, and the two merged. He was then taken to Master Eraqus without a memory to be further trained in the ways of the light. It is revealed that if he fights Vanitas, the pure darkness that was taken from him, that a "χ-blade" would appear and allow them to open Kingdom Hearts. Ventus did not embrace this destiny.
Ventus defeats Vanitas in a metaphysical battle in his own heart, destroying the χ-blade and scattering his heart. The comatose Ventus is then taken back to the Land of Departure by Aqua, who seals the world away and turns it into Castle Oblivion. This enabled her to be the only person who could ever find Ventus in the newly created Chamber of Rest. later, we see that his heart found its way to Sora to live in him, potentially explaining Roxas' appearance and why he seemed to have a heart after all.

 Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep
One of Master Eraqus's pupils. He usually goes by "Ven" for short. He, Terra and Aqua train together, sharing both a healthy rivalry and a strong bond of friendship. Haunted by the masked boy's warnings about Terra, Ven defied Master Eraqus, ran away from home, and set off for the outside world to find his friend.
Since Ventus is younger, Terra and Aqua tend to be very protective of him.
