The Maesta are creatures made up of a Nobody, Heartless, and an Unversed fused together. Like the Heartless, they are beings of darkness and made up of soul like a nobody is. They manifest in both pureblood and emblem.
Maesta are the main enemy type in the Dark Shard Saga, with various subspecies appearing as enemies in every game from Kingdom Hearts: Heartache to Kingdom Hearts: Tragic Emotion.
- Maesta means "gloomy" in Latin.
