|By Aleksi Remes|
Nobodies look like regular humans, with the same variance in possible builds, hair colors, eye colors and height. Nobodies are known to look rather dashingly different sometimes since they have exotic hair colors and styles. People would notice they seem familiar maybe, especially if they knew them before they became a nobody. They often have empty, clear eyes that reflect nothing even if they make expressions.
It is well-known that when a person's soul, or "Heart," is extracted from their bodies, the process turns the sundered Heart into a heartless, a being of darkness. The process leaves the residual body and animus as a byproduct, which malforms into a hollow and emotionless being known as a nobody. They have existed long before as a result of a man's twisted experiments which ripped many from their rightful bodies and hearts. Nobodies have no personality or genuine emotions to speak of, but unlike their primal heartless twin, they carry some sort of intellectual thought behind their actions. The main goal of most nobodies is to become a real person who has a Heart of their own, to become whole once more and cease being a nobody.
Nobodies typically act as they did when they had their Hearts, in an attempt to emulate emotions. They may not always remember, however, all they were prior they are becoming a nobody. Often, nobodies seek out the company of other nobodies, as their lack of emotions causes them to not fit as well with those they previously lived with. If or when nobodies congregate, they seldom do so in groups larger than 15 or so. Often, these are special nobodies that can control premature or lesser nobodies that are less humanoid and often resembling heartless.
In these circles, called organizations, the nobodies are regarded mainly as equals. They are assigned numbers which do not indicate anything of hierarchical importance, but rather a convenient system to organize by, with number 1 usually being the founder. Nobodies are known to inhabit a place called The Castle No One Remembers, from which they fan out to complete tasks for the organization. Each of these sophisticated nobodies are attuned to a unique weapon which is their trademark in battle. They gain these unique weapons as a sign of their induction into the organization.
As part of their new identity as a nobody, they will typically give themselves a new name composed of an anagram of their original name with an X thrown in.
Male: Axel, Xalgon, Vexen
Female: Larxene, Exclia, Xion
