The Four Maidens Of Heart (スリー・メイドンズ・オブ・ハート3 乙女) are maidens with hearts of pure light, devoid of darkness. They are the original three maidens of the universe to whose hearts are born naturally free of darkness.
They were the original Princesses Of Heart way before the time of the Heartless, Nobodies and Unversed but of the time of the Abominations and their reign of darkness and terror upon the worlds which ultimatley swallowed all the worlds in darkness until the Four Maidens shattered half the light in their hearts to pass it onto coming children who rebuilt the worlds.
The children were to be the Seven Princesses of Heart as coincedentally the light seperated from the original Maidens Of Heart became that of seven girls.
The Four Maidens of Heart came following the Keyblade War and were created as the universe was rebuilt for the first time thanks to the lights of surviving children.
The lights then came to four newly born maidens who encompassed the light fully in their hearts and came to be the Four Maidens Of Heart who were the original first way to forge the X-Blade to open Kingdom Hearts and forge the Door to Darkness.
The Four Maidens of Heart were:
- Pocahontas- (from "Pocahontas")- Indian Princess of the world Colour Wood
- Mulan- (from "Mulan")- Aspiring girl of the world Land Of The Dragons
- Anastasia- (from "Anastasia")- Lost Grand Duchess Princess of the world Romanovia
- Ariel- (from "The Little Mermaid")- Mermaid Princess of the world Atlantica
Kingdom Hearts: 0
The Four Maidens of Heart appear in Kingdom Hearts: 0 as a significant sub-plot against the abduction of Keyblade Master Helena by Xehanort's Abomination replica Eulo.
The Four Maidens Of Heart possess hearts of pure light which when harvested in the correct ritual way can forge the X-Blade the only thing which can unlock Kingdom Hearts.
Eulo plans to open Kingdom Hearts and harvest all it's powerful wisdom and control all the worlds as Kingdom Hearts is the heart to every world.
His main plan to forge the X-Blade is to lure Xehanort to the Keyblade Graveyard and make battle with him as the duel between a keyblade wielder and a keyblade wielder's evil replica on the grounds of the world Keyblade Graveyard forges the X-Blade.
He however becomes worried as to the success of the plan with Xehanort's bestfriend Keyblade Wielders Saiiaden and Eraqus interfering and trying to stop Xehanort knowing him crossing keyblades with Eulo will forge the X-Blade.
So Eulo halfway through the game's story has his four Abomination Generals abduct the Four Maidens Of Heart and creates four sleeping pods for the Maidens to be placed in whilest he extracts their hearts at the Keyblade Graveyard and forges the X-Blade.
He however ultimatley does not extract the Four Maidens' hearts as Xehanort comes to the Keyblade Graveyard and does battle with him forging the X-Blade.
