Sora (JP) is the main protagonist of the Kingdom Hearts series and a Keyblade wielder. He is an optimistic teenager who may seem simple-minded at times, but he has a strong sense of justice and a compassionate heart.

Sora is also best friends with Riku and Kairi. He travels to different worlds with Donald Duck and Goofy on the Gummi Ship to unlock Keyholes and get rid of the Heartless.
