The Main Villain of the Dark Seeker Saga of Kingdom Hearts and is the original incarnation of Xenmas and Ansem. He seeks to remake the Keyblade War.
Xehanort was born at Destiny Islands. He claimed that the world is just too small. He was encountered by his future Heartless to find 12 versions of himself in the future. When he returned to the present and forgot about the time travel, Xehanort fled to the Land of Departure. He met Eraqus, his classmate. Xehanort became interested in history, specifically, the Keyblade War. He used Keyblade Armor until he believed that it won't accept darkness. He needed to remake the war by finding a vessel. He found a boy named Ventus who failed his test. It resulted in Ven's darkness extracted thus creating Vanitas. Xehanort took Ven to his homeplace for rest. Xehanort is surprised that Ven uses a keyblade. He took him to Eraqus for training. Four years later, Terra and Aqua were in the Mark of Mastery exam. Xehanort used darkness on Terra in the exam, thus disqualifying Terra. Xehanort led Terra to extract one of the Princesses of Heart: Aurora. Xehanort chatted with Braig at Radiant Garden to lure Terra into using darkness. Terra's rage created a scar at Braig's eye. Later, Xehanort gave part of his heart to Braig and Isa. Xehanort told Ventus his lost memories and fusing with Vanitas. Xehanort told Maleficent about the Princesses of Heart for his plan. At the Keyblade Graveyard, Terra came face to face with Xehanort. When Ven and Vanitas fused, Xehanort stabbed himself with his keyblade so his heart can be sent to Terra as a vessel. Only Terra's armor and spirit resisted. When the X-blade broke, Xehanort got amnesia. At Radiant Garden, he came to Aqua. After a fight, Xehanort was sent to the Realm of Darkness. Aqua threw Xehanort, her armor and keyblade to the light so Aqua can survive. Xehanort was found by Ansem the wise. Braig was Xehanort's guide. He helped Xehanort get his memories back but he thought Xehanort was Terra. Xehanort, Braig, Dilan, Aleaeus, Ienzo, and Even worked on Xehanort's experiments. Ansem was nervous that Xehanort is worked up on Kingdom Hearts, so he banned him from working. In retaliation, the 6 apprentices sent Ansem to the Realm of Darkness and continued working. Xehanort fully regained his memory and stabbed Braig, declaring his name is Ansem. He later became a Heartless and Nobody named Ansem and Xemnas. This also resulted in Radiant Garden becoming Hollow Bastion. Over the next 14 years, Ansem is tasked to find the 7 princesses of heart and expand the darkness filled Kingdom Hearts. Xemnas is tasked to use Xehanort's heart for 13 vessels on an artificial Kingdom Hearts. Most of the Organization XIII is inadequate, thus naturally, they never have a chance to attain their goal. This shows why Xehanort time traveled. Both Ansem and Xemnas were destroyed by Sora. These deaths lead to the return of Master Xehanort. Sora and Riku were sent to the Dream Worlds and were encounted by Organization XIII. Sora was taken by Xehanort. The Organization retreated after Sora broke free.
