Who Are the Remaining Seekers of Darkness?

Who Are the Remaining Seekers of Darkness?

In light of the recent Kingdom Hearts 3 trailers, we have two new names to add to the list of known Seekers of Darkness.

We’re still not anywhere close to 13, though. Who will they be, the 13 vessels of Xehanort who will stand against the guardians of light?

Confirmed members so far:

  • Master Xehanort
  • Ansem, Seeker of Darkness (Xehanort’s Heartless)
  • Xemnas
  • Young Xehanort
  • Xigbar
  • Saix
  • Marluxia
  • Vanitas

(It hasn’t been positively confirmed that Vanitas is among them, but since he’s back, it’s the logical conclusion.)

That’s eight, which leaves us with five unknown enemies.

Keep in mind that it’s entirely possible for one of those five to be someone who was not present in the throne room at the end of Dream Drop Distance, because Master Xehanort needed to find a replacement after Sora didn’t work out.

So, who might the remaining five be?

I count both Braig and Xigbar, theorizing that one of them is a time traveler and the other has returned as a human (although this damages my Lauriam/Marluxia theory that they’re all using their X names).

I also think there’s a good chance that Terra-Xehanort will return in some way, especially if Master Xehanort is no longer using Terra’s body.

Previously, I would have excluded Larxene, but since Marluxia is involved and she was his closest ally, it’s possible she’s part of the new Organization as well.

Some fans think either a time-traveling Dark Riku or Riku Replica will fight for the Seekers of Darkness (especially with Riku’s “other me” line), but I can’t see either of them staying loyal to Xehanort for long.

What about Xion? Yes, it would be sadistic to bring Xion back on the wrong side, but Xemnas did say she was a better vessel than Roxas. If we consider that together with Young Xehanort’s hierarchy of wanting Riku, then Roxas, and finally Sora, Xion would take precedence over Roxas or Sora if anyone remembered her.

There’s always the unlikely but depressing Lea theory to consider, too.

Luxord is still unaccounted for, and there were dice on one of Xehanort’s chess pieces.

And let’s not forget that Dilan and Even were “unstable” during Dream Drop Distance, so we have yet to see them since they returned.

If I had to make five guesses for the remaining Seekers of Darkness right now, I would pick: whichever Braig/Xigbar we haven’t seen, Terra-Xehanort, Larxene, Luxord, and Dilan.

What are your theories on the remaining Seekers of Darkness, now that two more have been confirmed?
