Hello...I'm Riku from Kingdom Hearts...Yes, I'm the real Riku, so
don't bother me about it. Okay? Thanks. I really don't feel like
describing myself (It's kind of hard to do anyways, when you don't
really know what other people think of you), so I'll just put in an
article I found about me.
Riku (リク, Riku?) is Sora and Kairi's best friend and an
original character created by Tetsuya Nomura for the Kingdom Hearts
series. Nomura has stated that Riku's name can be seen as
"land"; the Japanese on'yomi pronunciation of land is riku
(陸, riku?). Riku is voiced by David Gallagher in the
English version and Mamoru Miyano in the Japanese version. He is
playable in the second story mode of Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories
and as a world-specific ally in Kingdom Hearts II.
At the beginning of the series, he is 15 years old and lives on
Destiny Islands with his friends. When their world is attacked by the
Heartless, the three are separated. Riku ends up at Hollow Bastion
where he is found by Maleficent. Under her influence, he becomes an
antagonist to help Kairi. Riku eventually becomes possessed by
Xehanort's Heartless, the main antagonist of the first game, and is
sent to the realm of darkness, where he helps Sora seal the door to
the realm of darkness.
In Chain of Memories, he awakes in the same fortress Sora had arrived
at and begins traversing to the top from the basement. Along the way,
Riku confronts the remaining darkness in his heart, and also
encountered DiZ, a mysterious stranger. Upon reaching the top he finds
Naminé, who is attending to a sleeping Sora to restore his memories.
Riku then chose to find a balance between his light and darkness. A
replica of Riku was created by Vexen in Castle Oblivion during the
events of Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories and was referred to simply
as the Riku Replica.
After the events in Chain of Memories, Riku confronted Roxas in order
to assist DiZ in reuniting him with Sora. During the fight, he used
the power of darkness, which converted Riku into the form of
Xehanort's Heartless. For most of the story, Riku remains in this
form, helping Sora in secret and never showing his face, not wanting
Sora or anyone else to discover what had become of him. Riku returns
to his original form by the destruction of a machine intended to
convert Kingdom Hearts into data. Afterwards, Riku and Sora battle and
defeat Xemnas. In the end, they end up on a dark beach, and discuss
how strong their friendship is and how much each of them wanted to be
like the other, before a portal opens to Destiny Islands. The two use
the portal and are sent home.
Sora and Kairi are my best friends.
Yeah, that's us...Kairi's the Auburn one, Sora has the brown spiky
hair, and I'm the one with the silver hair and green eyes. I guess I'm
sort of an introvert and an extrovert.
Anyways, if you'd like to chat, just message me. I'd be glad to talk.
