"My show now, Keyblade master! Who am I? Oh, my name's Axel. Got it memorized?" —Axel
the Nobody of Lea, and is Rank VIII within Organization XIII. He wields fire and enhances his weapons, twin Chakrams, with his pyrokinesis to unleash powerful rapid attacks. The Assassin Nobodies are under his control.
Axel was the trump card for the rest of the Organization as a double agent in Castle Oblivion to keep track of Marluxia’s plans. Axel betrayed the Organization for his friendship with Roxas and acted of his own accord to try and help Sora, though he originally wanted to turn Sora into a Heartless to get Roxas back.
