In the "age of fairy tales", when the World was whole, Kingdom Hearts was believed to be the source of all light. It was protected by its counterpart, the x-blade. Many came to desire the power of light contained within Kingdom Hearts, and they clashed together, wielding the Keyblades they created in the image of the χ-blade. Their greed and jealousy introduced darkness into the World, and in the aftermath of this Keyblade War, the χ-blade was shattered into 20 pieces (seven of light and thirteen of darkness), darkness covered the World and Kingdom Hearts disappeared within the darkness.
Since then, certain individuals have been yearning for Kingdom Hearts. Xehanort attempted to forge the χ-blade and summon Kingdom Hearts to restart the Keyblade War, simply because he was curious about what would happen. Much later, Ansem sought out Kingdom Hearts as he wanted to gain its power and knowledge, while immersing the universe with its darkness. However, Sora opened Kingdom Hearts to find that it contained immense light and used that to defeat Ansem. Then, Xemnas and the Organization XIII came close to creating an artificial Kingdom Hearts that they hoped would restore their hearts, only for it to be mostly destroyed by Ansem the Wise with his specially-built machine, the Kingdom Hearts Encoder. Sora, Riku, Donald and Goofy managed to destroy the rest.
