Kingdom Hearts SOS
Aux, along with Nequa and Vanitas are the masked assailants who kidnapped Terra, Ventus, and Aqua from the Land of Departure. For unknown reasons, they were instructed to leave Master Eraqus behind and only abduct the students.
Aux first appears in Deep Jungle once the gang of protagonists have to split up in order to fulfill their objectives. He is seen talking with Clayton who seemed to be fairly annoyed with the lack of progress the masked people had been doing with their part of the bargain. Aux then agreed with Clayton, that he had been patient enough to be compensated, and proceeded to summon another Chameleon type heartless. After Clayton asked about the ship he was promised, Aux corrects him in saying that he was promised power and a vessel. He then reveals to Clayton that he is the vessel for the power, which was the heartless that was just summoned. The chameleon then proceeded to pounce on Clayton.
Aux is later seen alongside Vanitas and Nequa in a faraway location. Aux is told by Vanitas that Krowley was here to most likely convert Aux back to the side of good, to which Aux simply replies that he had severed all of his past ties. After he told Vanitas that he could handle clean up, Aux remained at Deep Jungle as the other two left. Aux then lamented that Krowley had come, as he would now have to kill him.
Aux first appears in the Great Forest watching the birth of Bambi take place. At this point his presence is not known, and he is simply standing on a cliff. It was that he was spotted and quickly fled the scene. After he thought he had lost Kross, he started to mutter about how he was at the completely wrong time. He then fiddled around with his time belt until he created another time portal and hopped through it, giving Kross enough time to jump through it.
Aux showed up later in the future of the world, killing a heartless that was threatening Bambi. With his appearance all the animals fled and Aux pointed his keyblade at Kross, questioning why he did not yet leave. Realizing that Kross was an outsider he decided that he had to take care of him. Not before telling Kross that the entire world was so close to the light, and how the pure hearts would make great heartless. Summoning some heartless for Kross to deal with, Aux stepped away in a corridor of darkness and left Kross to deal with them.
Aux later returns holding Bambi at keyblade point, questioning why Bambi refuses the darkness. He claims that the other fawn had accepted it, only to be interrupted by the protagonist crew arriving. He simply shrugged off Leo's threats at him, and informed the gang that he was merely enlightening the creatures here about the darkness. He then proceeds to tell them that they are in no greater position to judge what is best for the world. As Leo began to tell him off again, Aux brushed the comments aside. He proceeded to tell Aux how embracing the darkness did not turn one into a heartless, and that having a being conquer the darkness was an area worth observation. He then proceeded to tell everyone that he had given darkness to another fawn, named Ronno, and called Ronno forth. Aux then decided to observe the Ronno's developments, and watched as a battle ensued between the protagonists and the fawn. After the fight had ended, Aux seemed to think that in the end Ronno was too young to fully utilize the darkness and came to the conclusion that without despair the heart could never fully accept it. His time belt was then knocked off by Bambi, but he proceeded to remain calm as a stormed seemed to be being caused by it. He then informed the group that time was going to go out of control, and that they would be sent through time more hectically now. With that done, everyone was sucked into a vortex.
Aux is next seen after the time skip, where he invites Bambi and the protagonists to talk with him. It was there that Aux discussed his theories on the darkness in people's hearts, and wanted to see how a heart that accepts it and heart that denies it would react to the darkness. He then goes on about how he has failed to corrupt Bambi yet, only to have gun shot then be heard in the distance. Saying that he kept to his end of the deal by not sending any heartless, he laughs as he leaves the protagonists to deal with the threats of the world.
Aux reappears once more, once Bambi and co. reach Bambi's mother. He is there to inform them that Bambi's mother is now deceased, and to flaunt it towards Bambi. He proceeds to ask Bambi if he hates him, and continues to antagonize the deer to try and provoke some form of reaction from him. Feeling satisfied, Aux leaves the party to go hop through time once more.
Aux reappeared after the next time skip seeing that the scenery had barely changed at all. He then heard the growl of a deer, only to find out that it belonged to Ronno. Aux informed Ronno that he had never planned on meeting up with him during the last time period, and was essentially done with Ronno in the experiment now. With that, Ronno charged Aux.
Aux came back after Bambi wondered aloud as to why Ronno hated him so much. Aux then continued to think aloud and wonder if he could force Bambi to fill a similar hate that Ronno felt towards Bambi, only to comment on how he was still basking in the light. When the other keyblade wielders began to take their stance against him, he told them that fighting them would prove fruitless. Once Bambi had told Aux as to why he was still light of heart, Aux then came to the conclusion that all he had to do was destroy Bambi's heart in order to make him plunge into darkness. He then summoned Ronno to take care of the protagonists before leaving.
Somewhere during the fight with Ronno, Aux had used a fire spell to set the forest ablaze. As Aux watched the forest burn, Bambi and co. had reached him. He sensed no darkness within Bambi and wondered what more he had to take from Bambi before he would submit to the darkness. After hearing Bambi's answer, he deemed the results inconclusive and all of the people unsalvageable. Summoning some heartless to fight them, Aux left through a dark corridor.
Aux appears towards the very end of the Dwarf Woodlands series of missions. After the party had beaten the Mad Treant boss and Vanitas had managed to take down six of the seven dwarves, Aux appears out of a massive corridor of darkness overlooking a small clearing. He was seen to be on his large motorcycle like keyglider with a large glass casket attached to it. He ended up circling the clearing once before touching down. Aux then appears before Vanitas, only to be scolded for coming in late and not having any heartless with him. Aux then told Vanitas that there were complications with his experiment, and then questioned Vanitas as to whether or not Snow White was ready to be taken away. When Aux moved in closer, he saw all the knocked out Dwarves only for Vanitas to reassure him that they were all still alive and that it was too late to start growing a conscience, to which Aux silently walked forward and continued his apprehension of Snow White.
After Nequa had appeared to join the duo of antagonists, Aux reappeared with the casket containing Snow White in hand. He then tells them that they have the Princess secured and that they can begin the abductions. When Krowley asks if Aux was actually helping them, he then refers back to the letter at Deep Jungle. When Vanitas starts to get angry with Aux, Aux simply denies any accusations and continues to stay silent. Aux then finishes readying the casket and gets ready to leave, only to be told by Vanitas that their discussion wasn't over, and Aux warning the party of protagonists to stop meddling.
Aux appears in this chapter towards the beginning riding on his keyglider at a walking pace alongside Nequa. The two are in some kind of dark abyss area with floating islands everywhere. He is also still tugging Snow White in her glass coffin using his keyglider. Aux first questions why their master had told them to simply depart before doing anything else, to which Nequa replies that she has no idea what goes on in his head. Aux then wonders about what Vanitas's mission is, but Nequa doesn't seem to have much of a clue about it either. Nequa eventually brings up the topic of their motivations for helping their master, to which Aux bluntly responds that he wants to study the heart. He continues to talk about how he is interested in finding out what makes a heart become corrupted, what makes them stay at bay from the darkness. He then tells how in order to do these studies he needs test subjects, which each mission allows him to further his research. When Nequa questions if he's one of those guys who just doesn't think hearts are just dark and light, Aux responds by saying precisely. When she tells him that things are about to get a whole lot darker, he responds again saying precisely.
Aux next appears in the room with Nequa waiting for Vanitas and their boss. When Vanitas comes through the corridor of darkness and admits that he failed in his mission, Aux questions what the mission even was to begin with. Vanitas refuses to tell him and instead starts to try and bring up how much distrust he has for Aux, to which Aux continually refuses the accusations being thrown at him. Once their master makes his first appearance, Aux remains silent only to confirm that they needed six more princess of heart. The master then sends Aux and Nequa together on the mission that Vanitas just failed, only for the master to tell Aux that out of all the three, he was the one who was trusted the most. He then reassured Aux that all of the things being hidden from him were not important to him, and as such he didn't need to worry about them. After being told to keep an eye out on Nequa, Aux simply responds by calling him master No Heart and leaves.
Aux appears in this chapter by coming out of corridor of darkness alongside Nequa carrying a battered and defeated Master Xehanort. Aux then throws Master Xehanort at No Heart's feet. The next thing Aux actually does this chapter is, going alongside Vanitas he takes Master Xehanort with him to the Cryo-chamber and asks Master Xehanort if he was concerned by the uncertainty of his fate, to which Xehanort simply replies that he wishes to see how this plays out.
Aux appears in this chapter by simply talking with Master Xehanort. He allowed Xehanort to be conscious above the neck so that the two may discuss matters of the heart. Aux, in surprise, responds to Xehanort by exclaiming that the heart is contained no matter what. It is then that Vanitas comes forth and asks Aux why Xehanort is currently awake. Prior to this, Aux had moved both Xehanort and Eraqus to a new location. When Vanitas asks Aux about where Nequa is, he states that he does not know. He then says that hopefully both her and the horseman attained what they were tasked for, simply because they were running behind on schedule as things were. Vanitas then jokes at Aux saying that they've got the time belt so they can go as slow as they please, only for Aux to tell him that that isn't how it works. He tells Vanitas that unless their opposition is within the same world, they have just as much of an advantage as the protagonists do. When Xehanort makes a remark towards Vanitas, Vanitas loses his temper once again and pulls out his keyblade only for Aux to counter by pulling out his own. Aux then tells Vanitas that prisoner or not, he will treat Xehanort with respect. Only when No Heart's voice boomed towards them did the two withdraw their weapons. After No Heart told the two that they could go all out if they wanted to now, he then tells Aux that he must seal Xehanort back up. When No Heart asks is this is a problem, Aux hesitates before saying that it won't be a problem.
While Aux doesn't directly appear in this world, he does appear in the form of Kaida's flashbacks. In the first flashback he is shown to be fighting Kaida and winning rather easily. While she still continued to fight him, he simply told her to know her limits or else she would die against him. Not being detered by it though, Kaida continued to attack only for Aux to nearly end it, when someone (presumably Hikaru) shouted to stop.
He appeared again in another flashback. This time he was sparring with Hikaru, still beating him with ease. While Kaida continually made jokes about the two, she then told Aux that she had no idea what school he had learned his keyblade prowess from. It was here that Aux said that despite feeling as though he failed his old master, his next master he would pledge undying loyalty to. He then mentioned that he would continue to wear his mask until the day when he could remember who he was, for not wanting to look at what he believed "half" of himself. Kaida then gave him a little wooden charm in the shape of a lion, telling him that it was a lion due to male lions always being in the pursuit of getting stronger, to help find out who they really are. Furthermore, male lions always stubbornly protect what is theirs. After accepting the charm, Kaida then continued to tease the other two, only for Aux to comment that she was quite devious and whether or not her animal would be the fox.
Aux first appeared in Beasts' Castle after Belle and the Beast entered the ballroom, commenting about how easy it was to manipulate people's hearts. Luna then asked him what he had done with Snow White to which he just replied that she was in a far away place and now had more value on her. When Krowley tried to reach out to Aux, the latter began to tell his former friend that he was afraid of the darkness that had gained a hold of him. When Krowley tried to help Aux, he revealed that he just made the whole thing up and was just mocking him.
Aux then scoffed as the group referred to Krowley as Krowley. He told him that he would benefit more from finding his own personal identity, rather than clinging onto someone else's. He then summoned a bunch of heartless, warning Krowley that the darkness was not meant for the weak-hearted. Before Aux left the scene, he gave a warning to Krowley, telling him that if he got in his way one more time it would be the end and revealed Krowley's true name to be Hikaru.
Aux then appeared later in the chapter as the group looked through the Beast's magic mirror to see Maurice. He was seen facing down Eclipse, who questioned why he was there, and that he had a lot to answer for. Aux responded that he was simply isolating his threats and waved away any other comments.
Aux then appeared once more at the end of the chapter. He was seen, having defeated Eclipse, and being very unamused by her chidings of him on the properties of darkness. When the Headless Horseman came into the picture, he asked him if he was followed, only for eight of the protagonists to appear as his answer. As Hikaru began to ask why he was doing all this, Aux explained that he had the ultimate goal of becoming darkness itself. When Hikaru continually tried to reason with him, which included throwing a whittled lion carvings towards him, the man simply charred the lion and told Hikaru that they were no long on the same path.
As Hikaru and the others began to get into a fighting stance, Hikaru told Aux that he was going to do him a solid and take him down. Aux responded by saying that he was going to do Hikaru a solid and keep him down. Aux then brutally and effortlessly defeated all the members of the party.
Hikaru then tried to stop Aux on his own, and asked him why he thought he would just let him leave. Aux, as he grabbed Hikaru's neck, then told him that there were three reasons. He stated that his ambition was out of his reach and that he only dragged people down. By this time, he had broken Hikaru's mask, and broke Hikaru's own wolf carving, only to state that the final reason was that Hikaru was too weak. After giving him one last warning to stay out of his way, Aux left the world.
Aux appeared part way through this chapter, in the usual dark hideout that the villains resided in. He was seen alongside Vanitas, waiting for No Heart and Nequa's appearance so that they may get the next steps to their plan. While Vanitas was complaining about how the Horseman wasn't working fast enough in getting the princesses, Aux asked him why he was complaining even after he was allowed to cut loose. After asking him what more his half heart desired, Vanits brought up the point that No Heart had told him to stop talking to Master Xehanort. Aux simply replied that Xehanort was more enjoyable to talk to due to giving him answers.
Vanitas then started to go on about how if Aux wanted to talk then he should go join up with the others from the Order. He continued to berate him about he couldn't sink further into the darkness due to both Hikaru and Kaida's existence, being the only lights that still exist within him. Aux stood silently during this time. He then spoke up once again when Nequa appeared with Mizu in tow, asking how she could possibly always be late. Aux then seemed to get aggrivated with Nequa as she had kidnapped a member of The Order. The last thing Aux had done during this segment of the chapter was ask No Heart where Yen Sid was, only to be told that he had been taken care of.
Road to Darkness Epilogue Edit
Aux appeared at the end of the first part of the Epilogue to part one of Kingdom Hearts SOS. In it, his role was fairly simple as the last encounter of the Part. In here, he did nothing but taunt the wielders and relish the power of darkness that he was granted. When they fought him, he demonstrated their difference in strength by pummeling the group mercilessly and tossing them all into the darkness. While fighting his old friends, Kaida and Hikaru, he removed his mask to reveal his face to them, and defeated them with equal ease before saying a goodbye to them and having them tossed into oblivion as well.
Aux is cold, but logical. He seeks only what is most useful and powerful which is why he is so obsessed with unlocking the secrets of the human heart. His personality is very dark, but he is not without priorities. Unlike Nequa or Vanitas, Aux is very loyal to their master as he views him as not only a teacher, but a father figure as well. He was once good friends with Hikaru in their own time, but once he tasted darkness, he abandoned his morals and did whatever he could to research as much as he could on the subject.
Aux is a very heavy and muscular build, mainly covered in Black and White armor. His belt, and under is comprised of steel toed shoes and black pants embedded with white chains along the belt and below the knees. His upper body however is more heavily armored. the reason for this is he greatly values his hearts and will protect it at all costs. His arms are covered with metallic and mechanical armor giving him great strength and defense. He wears a plated chestplate overlaying his cloth under armor. The helmet he wears is a pitch black iron mask with 4 fang-like spikes coming out of the top.
