The Master of Masters. (True name unknown. "I'm not telling!")
Hey, don't you know it's rude to ask someone that? (Unknown, likely several centuries?)
Master of the Foretellers
Luxu - the Master's right hand man, so to speak. Though he was impartial to all of them, he gave to Luxu perhaps the most important task of all: To carry his gazing eye into the future. It is because of Luxu's assignment that the master can see ahead of time, Luxu was also responsible for the mysterious Black Box. It's contents unknown, only he and the master know of it's location now.
Ira - The serious yet reliable apprentice under the Master's guidance; he moved for the creation of unions in order to avert the darkest of the prophecies revealed by Master. Probably the easiest for the Master to tease, this man means well at the end of the day, but seems to have some level of trouble directing the others without coming off as overly bossy. He leads the union of Unicornis.
Aced - The apprentice who carries a strong heart, but relies too much on raw power rather than critical strategy. The master publically gave him the role of supporting Ira. However in quiet, his true role was to take over as leader if Ira should ever fail to uphold his position. He leads the union of Ursus
Ava - Sweet and innocent, Ava is perhaps the youngest of the apprentices under the Master. To her was given the role of ensuring the survival of the light, she was assigned with creating a new organization called the "Dandelions". A very important role, right behind Luxu's own. She leads the union known as "Vulpes"
Gula - Calm, collected, distrusting. Gula is the apprentice to whom lead the most unfortunate path. Wether it is because of his own personality, or the Master's involvement, he distanced himself from the others. To him was given the role of finding the traitor mentioned in the missing prophecy page, and putting a stop to them. Willful manipulation by the Master, or a true foretelling? The truth of the matter is shrouded in mystery. He leads the union of "Leopardus".
Invi - A woman of virtue, of great loyalty to her friends and master alike. The last of the master's six apprentices, but not the least. She was tasked with acting as a mediator, keeping order between the five unions through any means necessary. She carries out these tasks without question and holds the master in high regard. She heads the union called "Anguis"
The Dandelions (Ephemer, Skuld, Lauriam, Ventus, Strelitzia, Brain, and others) - Special children recruited by both the Master and Ava to carry the light into a new world. He gave a copy of the book of prophecies to only one of them.
The Master is eccentric, an enigma, and a bit immature, all at the same time. However, don't be fooled by this childish attitude. It is - if nothing else a front for his true genius. He is clever, charismatic, and highly capable of advanced magical study. He displays an understanding of what Kingdom Hearts is, though whether this is knowledge from the past or the future is unknown. He has also shown a deep understanding of keyblades as well, perhaps even the χ-blade itself.
Beyond that, his teasing, playful nature can be either endearing and friendly - Or intimidating and dangerous. This nature of his confuses those that know him to no end, and deeply perplex those who don't know him.
"On that fated land, a great war shall transpire. Darkness will prevail, and the light expire."
Those were the words that covered the end of the book of prophecies, a book written by the master himself. Words that reflected a future that was certain in his eyes. He knew these things and so much more through the use of his gazing eye. A power unknown to all. The future known to him, he took steps to prepare for it. 6 apprentices were those he chose. To bear the future he saw. To the serious Invi, he gave the role of the leader. To the proud Aced, the role of the supporter- And the usurper. To the loyal Invi, the role of a mediator. To the cool-headed Gula, the role of the traitor hunter, and to him an extra page from the book of prophecies. To the young Ava, the role of carrying the light into the future. And to Luxu; the role of one who would bring the gazing eye into that very same future, so that the Master can see all that he will.
He knew that he would one day vanish from the world without a trace. He gave each of his apprentices these roles so that his legacy might continue. He left the mark of memories upon all of them. He granted to Luxu in a private meeting the keyblade that carried his gazing eye, with instructions to pass it down to disciples of his own, and to their own as well. It wasn't just the keyblade however, he also provided Luxu with a mysterious black box, it's contents unknown, he was tasked with simply carrying it into the future.
His next step was motivating the other five to take up their roles. He provided these five with copies of his foretelling book; the contents of this book would push Ira to desire a change of their fate. With this one simple wish, the Master granted to him the role of leader. Despite all this, the master is honest and upfront with Ira, telling him that even with this, war is still unavoidable, unchangeable. But this only served to motivate Ira more, and from there Ira went to work gathering other wielders of the light as the first foreteller.
Afterwards he met with Aced, to tell him of Ira's promotion to the role of leader, much to Aced's dismay. This too was expected, however to him was given a different role; to support Ira despite this disappointment. And if Ira should ever fall astray in his duties? Take the leadership from him. Naturally Aced was told to keep this secondary role secret, so as not to destroy the trust the five will need to protect the light. And so with this, Aced followed Ira, as per the master's instructions.
Next was Invi, who would trust in the master's words wholeheartedly. To her he provided the role of a mediator, and one who was to watch over the other foretellers and report them to the leader. A simple task on paper, and one he trusted no one but her with. Despite her own fears, she accepted the role, and so yet another foreteller had risen to follow Ira.
Then came Gula. The poor lad was given perhaps the most daunting and painful role of all, but he was collected, ever thoughtful. The master knew only he was right for this role. To Gula was given the task of a terrible truth hiding within the pages of the Master's book; there would be a traitor in their ranks. And it was up to Gula to find them, and destroy them when that future event should come to pass. Naturally this revelation was omitted from the copies of his book. To reveal such a shocking truth would be devastating, and only serve to make the traitor hide their efforts better.
Finally, Ava. Though she doubted herself, the Master knew her innocence would serve her perfectly for this task. She was to ensure the light would be carried into the future, if even just a fragment. The final page of his book was certain as his eye had discerned no changes, so it was a task that had to be done no matter the outcome the foretellers may have perceived. To carry this light, she had to form a group of keyblade wielders, "The dandelions". They would be removed from the unions, and spread their light through the darkness once the time came. Among these dandelions, the Master chose five in particular that Ava was to make the new leaders; Skuld, Ephemer, Brain, Laurium, and a lad named Ventus. These five were to be the new union leaders once the war had reached it's conclusion.
With his tasks doled out to the six apprentices, the Master vanished suddenly and without warning, leaving the future he had witnessed to carry on in his absence. All that his gazing eye saw had come to pass. But soon, he will awaken once more. Do not be afraid however, for your light will carry you no matter what his eye sees and his tongue proclaims.
"'Let your heart be your guiding key'. I say it all the time! Ultimately you need to do what your heart feels is right." - The master towards Invi.
"OH! You think that's gross, do ya?!" - The Master in response to Luxu.
"GASP. Don't tell me I don't count?!" - The master jokingly speaking to Luxu
"This world is full of light. It's a world of many smaller worlds, all connected; stretching as far as the eye can see. One great light protects us all throughout this vast land. All worlds share one light, one fate."
"Pft, c'mon, are you telling me you think the world can be saved by just seven people?" - The master to Ira
Long ago, when the world was young, the light carried over all the lands. The mysterious hooded man known only as "The master of masters" entered his tower and-
"Nope! Nahhhh, this isn't gonna work. Listen, writer. I love ya. I really do, but this is such a BORING start! We really need to liven this thing up, don't you think?"
But this- This is a great mystical story-book styled opening, right? I like it personally.
"Yeahhhh but you see..." The master presses a hand to his head, thinking before speaking once more. "The whole 'storybook' thing just DOESN'T...Fit me! It doesn't scream 'MYSTERIOUS MASTER!' you feel me? My life isn't a storybook. And this whole...Narrating what I'm doing is a bit weird, but I guess people in your universe can't see me, so...Keep doing that! Good job. The rest though? Gimme that keyboard, let me just...Spice this story up a bit."
The sun was setting on a cloudy day, the storm clouds were visible in the distance as lightning arced across it's surface. The master walked up the mile long steps towards his massive, trillion-dollar mansion that was made from solid gold. He pushed open the massive double doors, stepping into the dark entry-room...WHEN SUDDENLY He was attacked by ninjas!! A whole army of them! They might've been a match for someone like Ansem or Sora, but NOT FOR THE MASTER OF MASTERS! He drew three keyblades, rushing through the crowd like scissors through paper!
"Ah yes! Now THIS is the kind of entertainment these guys come here to read! The masses of my adoring fans want ACTION! ROMANCE! THRILLS, AND...NINJAS!!!" He sat down the pen, admiring his..."work".
"Hey, that wording sounded like you were mocking my art! GASP! MY art?! Could it be that you're just...Blind?!" He spoke sarcastically, mockingly...
Unfortunately, his story resumed being created...
The NINJAS were all defeated! He stood victorious over them all, but JUST THEN the ninja leader stood atop a balcony staring down at the master! But the master would not be deterred! He stared back bravely, and leapt up towards the balcony, running up the wall leading up towards it! He did a heroic flip as he reached the top, going over the Ninja leader, he swung his blade backwards and struck the crafty leader, pushing him through the balcony railing and sending him plummeting to the ground!
"Hold on, just a liiiiittle more. Just a few more touches here, a bit of flash there..."
And so, The master leapt down, landing on top of the ninja leader, and sealing his fate! He did a pose, and then the citizens of Daybreak town flooded in, cheering and creating statues of his glorious posture! He was loved forever and ever, the end!
The master dropped the pen, admiring his finished roleplay example. He shrugged. "Anyhow, I gotta go meet and greet with the future! Gotta see what's being going on in my absence. Later!"
He opened a door leading to pure light, and stepped through, shutting the door which promptly vanished into thin air behind him.
