"The fated land will be the battleground for a great war. Light will see defeat and expire, while darkness prevails evermore."
The Book of Prophecies is a volume of writings written by the Master of Masters.
The book is said to have the future written, but that it also has the power to conjure entire worlds and beings that have yet to exist. Thus, it is the source of the cards and medals used by ancient keyblade wielders.
Story[edit | edit source]
Kingdom Hearts χ[edit | edit source]
Using the eye embedded in the No Name Keyblade that he passes on to Luxu, the Master of Masters begins to see the events that will unfold and writes them down in what becomes the Book of Prophecies. The No Name Keyblade is passed on to Luxu's successor, and then the next successor, allowing the Master to see the future. The Master then gives a copy of the Book of Prophecies to each of his five other apprentices, Ira, Aced, Invi, Gula, and Ava, intentionally excluding Luxu to avoid a temporal paradox. Shortly thereafter, the Master of Masters disappears.
In the Book of Prophecies, the Foretellers find a shocking passage that predicts the Keyblade War and the end of light. In order to prevent this, they conjure up worlds from the future using the Book of Prophecies and recruit the Keyblade wielders to their unions to gather Lux. Gula's copy contains an additional Lost Page that tells of a traitor among the Foretellers. In the end, the Foretellers are unable to stop the final prophecy, and the Keyblade War ensues.
