Kingdom Hearts χ
According to Chirithy, before its creator disappeared, he bestowed his six followers with new names and gave five of them a tome from the Book of Prophecies. These five followers would become the Foretellers and read the future written in the tomes. One passage on the last page shocked them all:
- "The war in that place will lead to the defeat and destruction of the Light.
The World will be enveloped in eternal Darkness."
- —Book of Prophecies
To save the world from destruction the Foretellers used the power hidden in book and handed it on to the followers of their respective Union.
However, in secret, the sixth apprentice of the Master of Masters, Luxu, was given access to another part of the Book of Prophecies, known as the Lost Page. This page foretold the destruction that would be wreaked upon the world by the Keyblade War, a conflict which would erupt from the fighting of the separate Unions against one another. Luxu was given the task of overseeing these events to ensure that they took place as was foretold. This included possessing new vessels over the decades to ensure his task.
The Master additionally stored a different copy of the Book of Prophecies in a black box and made Luxu swear to never open it. He sinisterly told Luxu that he'd see why.
