Naminé is a witch with the power to control the memories in Sora's heart and those of anyone connected to his heart. She was originally born when Sora released Kairi's heart from his body by stabbing himself with Ansem's dark Keyblade. Since Kairi did not become a Heartless with the birth of her Nobody, however, Namine is considered a highly unusual Nobody. Her powers are also believed to have come from her strange birth circumstances.


[edit] Appearance

In all the games so far, she has always been seen wearing the same white lace dress and light blue sandals. She has blonde hair and pale pink lips. She has a slight resemblance to Kairi, after all she is her nobody.

[edit] Story

[edit] Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories

In Kingdom Hearts: Chain Of Memories, she was the prisoner of Organization XIII in Castle Oblivion. They forced her to erase Sora's memories and replace them with false ones of herself. These implanted memories were meant to trick Sora into loving Naminé so that the Organization could use Sora as a puppet and attain the power of his Keyblade. Sora managed to defeat the members of the Organization and freed Naminé from their clutches. She gave him the option of keeping these new memories or forgetting them and getting his old ones. Sora chose to reclaim is old ones, so Naminé spent a year restoring them while Sora slept.

[edit] Kingdom Hearts: 358/2 Days

Naminé's appearances in this game are mainly to provide a bridge from Chain of Memories to Kingdom Hearts II. While Sora sleeps, Naminé is trying to restore his memories but is running into difficulty due to the existence Xion, an embodiment of Sora's leaked memories. She tells DiZ that she feels Xion's existence may keep Sora from awakening, and later tells Xion that Xion is a Replica.

[edit] Kingdom Hearts II

In Kingdom Hearts II, Naminé is almost finished restoring Sora's memories. She meets his Nobody, Roxas, and tells him about his past and who he really is and makes a promise that they will meet again when she is taken away by DiZ. DiZ, angry that Naminé contacted Roxas, orders Riku to destroy her. However, Riku instead leaves her with Axel.

Naminé is not seen again until the end of the game, when she breaks Kairi out of her prison cell at the Organization's stronghold. She is seen also coming out in a phantom-like state from Kairi's body a little later on, opening a portal to send Kairi and the others (except Sora and Riku) home. She entered this state because she had merged back with Kairi. Her last appearance is in the ending scene when Sora and Kairi reunite at the Destiny Islands, thus bringing Naminé and Roxas together.

[edit] Reverse/Rebirth

In Reverse/Rebirth, Naminé helps Riku to embrace both the darkness and light in his heart in order to pursue Zexion. At the end of the storyline, she moves Sora, Donald and Goofy to Twilight Town in order to keep them safe from the Organization.

[edit] Journal Entries

[edit] Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories

[edit] Sora's Story

A young witch who, under orders from Marluxia, rewrote much of Sora's memory.

Because Naminé based the false memories on Sora's feelings toward Kairi, Sora believed he and Naminé had been friends since childhood.

But truth be told, the two had never met before Castle Oblivion.

[edit] Reverse/Rebirth

A young witch who can manipulate memories.

Under orders from the Organization, Naminé shadowed Kairi and altered Sora`s memory. But the forgiveness in Sora`s heart moved her to disobey those orders.

Now she watches over Sora until the reconstruction of his memories is complete.

[edit] Kingdom Hearts II

A girl with the power to manipulate memories.

She seems to have some strong connection to Sora.
