Xigbar: "May your heart be your guiding key."
Luxord: "Picture this: a black goat stashes away a letter, then orders a white goat to search for it. What could his intentions possibly be?"
Xigbar: "Great, a riddle. Just what I need."
Luxord: "There are many possibilities. Perhaps he forgot where it's hidden, or he's playing a prank. I can think of several reasons offhand; guessing...is simply useless."
Xigbar: "Well, then just follow your orders, plain and simple."
Luxord: "Yes, that's what I've always done. I followed the orders from above, without question. However, I sometimes can't help but read into my opponent's strategy."
Xigbar: "Too long on the job?"
Xigbar: "Well, it's tricky."
Luxord: "All Xehanort cares about is the clash between the seven lights and thirteen darknesses. It's unlikely he would hold such an interest in this mysterious box. Which means, the order was issued by...Xemnas, or the one who informed me of my task—you."
Xigbar: "As if! It musta been Xemnas."
Luxord: "My inquiries suggested otherwise."
Xigbar: "Oh, man...you asked him?"
Luxord: "What are your intentions?"
Xigbar: "Look, I don't know what's inside the box. But it's been protected by Keyblade wielders since way back when. Aren't you curious? I heard it contains information that's vital to all Keyblade wielders—secrets."
Luxord: "And where did you hear this?"
Xigbar: "Hmm, I don't remember. I keep my eyes and ears wide open, but I've traveled to so many different places, it's hard to keep everything straight, y'know?"
Luxord: "If this box is truly as important as you say, why now? I believe you discovered that others also seek it, and you need to find it before anyone else does, in order to keep your connection to the box a secret from those around you. Xigbar, who are you really?"
Luxord: "No matter. it doesn't make a difference to me. It's all the same. I'm content to feign ignorance."
Xigbar: "The question is, who are you, Luxord?"
