Organization XIII are a group of thirteen powerful Nobodies led by Xemnas and Xehanort who sought to use Xehanort's heart on 13 vessels. Nearly all the members have weak bodies, wills and trust. These inadequate members believed they needed their hearts back. To do this, the Organization desires the power of the Keyblade to defeat the Heartless so more hearts are fed to an artificial Kingdom Hearts, thus they attempt to make use of Sora in their plans.

In The World That Never Was Xemnas appears when Ansem the Wise tries to contain Kingdom Hearts’ power in an ecoder he created. The machine fails to do its job and overloads exploding and exiling Ansem the Wise. Xemnas then uses what’s left of Kingdom Hearts’ power to fight Sora and his friends.

Riku defeats him after a tough battle.
With the last of his strength Lexaeus releases all the Darkness he has to try and consume Riku but King Mickey protects him from it.

Axel contemplates and decides to go through her but Sora appears suddenly and Marluxia and Namine vanish. Sora battles Axel and defeats him and Sora goes after Marluxia.
With Marluxia taken care of Axel used the replica of Riku to get rid of Zexion.
After those events Axel tries to save Roxas from but fails to do so as Roxas merged with Sora. Axel then kidnapped Kairi in order to bring Sora to him but Sai’X takes her away. Later in Hollow Bastion Axel appears and tells Sora about the Organization’s plans to use him to get Hearts for Kingdom Hearts so they can become whole. Then he apologized for letting Kairi get involved.
Axel found Sora, Donald, and Goofy in a pathway to the World That Never Was and helps them fight the Nobodies there. When there are too many to fight Axel unleashes an attack that would kill himself and the Nobodies.

However, Demyx gets fatally wounded in the battle and is defeated by Sora.
Luxord- Known as "The Gambler of Fate," Luxord has control over time and the Gambler Nobodies with his weapons being giant playing cards.

He is first seen in Port Royal leading Sora and his allies on a wild goose chase to reclaim several of Jack's coins that were stolen by Gamblers. Even after gathering the coins and defeating the Grim Reaper Heartless that was empowered by them, Sora couldn't stop Luxord from claiming the heart that was contained in the Grim Reaper.
He is later seen in The World That Never Was as he battles Sora alone whisking Sora's friends away from the area.

But the Gambler of Fate winds up running out of time and is defeated by Sora.
Marluxia- Known as "The Graceful Assassin," Marluxia makes use of a scythe and his element of Flowers in battle. Marluxia was appointed control of Castle Oblivion to make use of the witch Namine to wipe Sora of his memories so the Keyblade wielder would fall under the Organization's control to be a pawn in their plans. However, Marluxia plotted to overthrow the Organization by making use of Sora to destroy the Organization's members. Namine winds up betraying Marluxia and the enraged traitor of the Organization fuses with a large angelic and machine-like Nobody in an attempt to kill Sora. Instead, Marluxia winds up being defeated in both fused forms by Sora.
Larxene- Known as "The Savage Nymph", Larxene uses eight kunai knifes in battle and has control over Lightning as her element.

This provoking would prove to be Larxene's undoing as Sora became enraged enough in their final battle to defeat the Savage Nymph.
Roxas- Being the Nobody of Sora and the "Key of Destiny," Roxas had control over Light as his element and the Samurai Nobodies. Because he was Sora's and Ven's Nobody, Roxas was capable of wielding the Keyblade and unlike the other Nobodies and Organization members, was capable of expressing true emotions from Ven's heart.

But as time wore on, Roxas grew impatient with the lack of answers uncovering his past and he left the Organization. He is captured by Riku who took on the form of Xehanort's Heartless to subdue Roxas. DiZ sends Roxas into a virtual simulation of Twilight Town where he would be kept until the time where he would need to be reunited with Sora. He deeply resembles Ventus.
