Well, why don't you find out and make the judge of it.
It was dark and creepy in the Chamber but then again, The Castle was a dark and creepy place. Yet in contrast to the other rooms in the castle that offered illumination via a lamp, this room brought light forwards in a different manner. How one may ask? The answer came when the chamber's entrance door slid open and a figure dressed in nothing but a black coat that covered his face and body walked by. As he walked into the room, the black thorns and nobody symbols lit up with light following the hooded figure until he placed his hand on the throne and sat down.
Releasing a soft sigh, the hooded figure in black lowered his head then to raise his head again. He looked at a nobody embelm which brought back a memory.
*Flash*"Lord Xemnas." addressed the blue-haired man. "I've received a message from one of those Dusks several minutes ago. I've taken that you need my presence my lord about the Replicas?"
The hooded man was in the middle of an arid, grassless desert where nothing asides from plateaus and canyons surrounded him. He felt strange in being here, almost like that he's been there before...perhaps during the time that was his unknown past? Though he could sense that his memories were in accordance with this desert world, nothing specific came up so for an answer, he looked onto what looked like an battle that was about to escalate against two equally powerful individuals. Two individuals who for some reason he felt some connection to.
"I should've known that you would come here." spoke the old bald man in a black and white cloak ever so eloquently. "Cross the barrier between the light and dark to my origin! I'm tired of waiting for you Terra!"
The brunet male encased in an armored suit shook his head. "No....I have a friend." He moved his right arm from his chest towards the direction of a desert bush and a plateau just behind it. Small particles of light and dark circulated the man's arm. Seconds passed as the particles began circulating in a more rapid motion and took the spectral form of what looked like a giant Key which materialized into form, held by the young man's hands. "Answer me Master Xehanort! What have you done to his heart!"
Knock. Knock. Knock.
"Indeed, So there's no point in explaining much to you." Xemnas responded as he turned his head. "Your abilities have matured. I've noticed this and I am impressed, more so than some among my colleagues. Yet the time has come to put all that you've learned to the test and only then will I accept you as a true comrade to our cause." He stood up from the throne and walked around it towards where Saix was, remaining in his kneeling position. "It seems that despite their unstable compositions, one specimen out of all has stabilized and survived past expected life expectancy. It's unfortunate enough that the rest we were compelled to abort them but it's horrendous imagining the one functioning doll to be out of our hands."
"Is that so?" Saix said sounding interested. "I wasn't aware that one survived." I wasn't told that information from Vexen. Gr. He kept some things hidden from me...as I expected. Bastard crone. Upon thinking about that chilly academic, he swore that he would strangle that man once his business with lord Xemnas was done though he doubted that. He had an idea where this conversation was headed and knowing it made him all the more curious. Regardless...who would've imagined it? A living doll but ofwhat? His curiosity compelled the blue-haired man to want to know and so he asked. "What's it made of?"
"And ruin the suspense, Number VII?" Xemnas responded jokingly with a smile but his pretense at a jovial expression transformed into a grim look on his face. "I'm afraid that information is classified to neophytes."
Saix was, to admit it, frustrated from this answer. Just what I expected. No surprise there. After all, this sort of answer was typical of Xemnas being the enigmatic individual full of mysteries that he was. He didn't wish to press the issue any further in the small but still possible chance that Xemnas would be annoyed if not frustrated to the point that he dismissed him or worse kill him as he always threatened when someone happens to screw up badly on an assignment. Saix preferred to play along, considering he (and his best friend Lea...Axel) had been members only for six months and upon doing so, he moved his head up and down and calmly said. "Fair enough. It was out of my place to ask. Please forgive me for my error."
"No need to beg for it. I am devoid of emotions to call my own, thus making it impossible for me to feel anger and hatred towards you." Xemnas motioned the blue-haired man to stop bowing and get up which if he planned on continuing to live, Saix would obey. And not surprisingly, the blue haired man obeyed his superior and stood up. "Now then enough. I was providing you some more background information when you decided to interrupt me." snarled Xemnas at the blue haired man standing in front of him.
He was intelligent and despite being a hot-head, he kept his cool as he knew that if anyone could kill him, lord Xemnas could and would do so without any hesitation.
The Luna Diviner silent; Xemnas took it upon himself explaining the assignment. "I've sent countless agents across the continent for the past few weeks and much to our good fortune, I am able to provide you the exact location where it's currently hiding. At a region in southern Spain named Andalusia, lies a barely known place known as the Land of Departure. It's believed that's where she's at. Your mission is to bring the doll to me by any means necessary. Kill anyone who stands in your way if you must."
"It shall be done lord Xemnas." said Saix. "Your will is my command."
With her back, I'll only need to bring back...him to make me whole... Xemnas looked over at Saix and frowned. “I can trust that you have the sufficient capabilities to handle the girl?"
“Of course. I'm sure I can finish this mission of yours quite easily. It's no challenge to me." Saix smiled a sinister grin as he placed his hand on the wall causing a small dark swirl to appear. "After all lord Xemnas, how difficult could it be to apprehend a mere doll? I may not know everything about this doll nor the rest but even if she knows how to fight, I'll make sure that she'll be returned to you though I hope to expect some reward for doing this deed of yours milord..." That being said, the swirl had matured to a fully developed corridor and waving his hand good-bye to his liege, he immersed into the portal and departed for where the doll was believed to be hiding at, a place called the Land of Departure.
Once Saix departed in his corridor of darkness, Xemnas sat back down and looked back up at the symbol that he was looking at previously before. Should he keep his word and succeed in retrieving her back to me, it will leave me one step closer to become whole once again. By having you all re-united with me...just like the old times. You, her and me....shall be one. Summoning a corridor, he departed to unknown parts...
