Riku may seem cool and collected for his age, but he is far from the quiet type. Always curious about the unknown, he begins to question the small, closed world in which he lived. Riku dreamt of seeing other worlds and so he forsook the islands, only to be seduced by the power of darkness. He has a strong need to belong, which makes him vulnerable. He's afraid that if the people he loves don't need him anymore, they'll eventually drift away. Riku will do whatever it takes to prevent that from happening, even if it means having to control them. Feelings like jealousy and rage get in the way of his good judgment, but also help him and his power. He has changed his ways though after Ansem said he would drown in a world of darkness. Riku took control of his life and stopped him for a while. Now he finds help and moral support from Mickey. He is Sora's best friend and greatest rival; both push each other to their limits. In Kingdom Hearts II, Riku, with DiZ, helps Sora regain his true memories. After Sora awakens, Riku travels the worlds, investigating the Organization XIII.
