Oras is the main antagonist of Kingdom Hearts: The Keyblade War. Born when darkness first entered the world after people started fighting over the light, he soon became an embodiment of this darkness with a truly evil purpose; his goal is to destroy Kingdom Hearts, and in the resulting chaos, take over all worlds and realms.
- A being born of the darkness with enough power to engulf entire worlds in that same darkness.
A gifted Keyblade wielder, his attention seems to be aimed at the heart of ultimate light, Kingdom Hearts.
Oras was born in the United Paradise when darkness first entered the world. Encountering Shadow, Dawn, and Void, he used a weapon of the darkness and his creation known as the Keyblade to trap the trio in the Realm of Darkness.
- Oras's name is merely "Sora", the name of the main protagonist of the Kingdom Hearts series, with the letters rearranged. Creators thought it would be fun to see the ultimate protagonist as the ultimate antagonist, hence the choice of name. Another reason for the name choice would be the "as" ending that is shared with Vanitas from Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep, a being with Sora's face that also had the role of an antagonist, as he was born from purest form of darkness. Rearranging the letters in the name "Sora" was lastly done to further imply the fact that he is a distorted, twisted, and evil version of what Sora currently is, was, and will be.
- Creators said that Oras could be the first antagonist of the Kingdom Hearts series, as he is the first to be truly evil. While Xehanort posed a threat due to his power-hungry nature, his self-centered intentions were nothing compared to what would result when the heart of all worlds and all that lives died out.
- Creators lastly stated that of all characters appearing in Kingdom Hearts: The Keyblade War, Oras's name and exact role were hardest to come up with.
