Radiant Garden is a world in the Kingdom Hearts series, introduced in Kingdom Hearts II. It is ruled by Ansem the Wise, and is the home of Leon, Yuffie, Aerith, Cid, and Merlin, as well as many of Ansem the Wise's apprentices.
Story[edit | edit source]
As Sora, Donald, and Goofy sit in the Gummi Ship trying to figure out their first destination, Sora receives a call from Chip and Dale, who reveal that Riku discovered some data from Ansem the Wise hidden inside Sora. Ienzo is added to the conversation, talking to the group from Ansem's computer room, with Aeleus in the background. Ienzo tells Sora about the work he has been able to do with the data using Ansem's computer. It turns out that Ansem the Wise had been looking into Sora's heart, only to discover that another heart had been hidden inside. Sora is not surprised by this, believing that Roxas is the one he shares his heart with. Ienzo is intrigued by this idea and signs off.
While looking for Roxas in Twilight Town, Pence tries to activate the transporter to the datascape town, but only manages to flood the computer with error messages. This prompts another call from Ienzo, who—while working on Ansem's computer in Radiant Garden—was notified of someone trying to log in from a different terminal and suspected it might be Sora. Pence explains how they were trying to activate he transporter, which Ienzo is intrigued to learn about. Through working together, Pence and Ienzo are able to network the two computers, allowing for faster data analyzing from both ends. Ienzo promises to look into the virtual Twilight Town and Roxas' data, with the help of Chip and Dale. Before he goes, he warns Sora about the vanishing of Even.
Later, King Mickey and Riku are escorted by Dilan to the place where Aqua fell into the Realm of Darkness while trying to save Terra. They recount the story of her disappearance, the discovery of the stranger called Xehanort that Ansem the Wise took in as an apprentice, the betrayal Xehanort would later commit against his master, and the separation of hearts and bodies he would preform on himself and his fellow apprentices. As they discuss the actions of Xehanort from then to now, Mickey realizes Terra's fate: his body had been stolen by Xehanort. Knowing the danger of Terra being part of the Real Organization XIII, Riku and Mickey decide they must warn Sora and Merlin as soon as possible.
