The Heartless appear in groups, and are multiplying rapidly. I've provided them both living and nonliving samples. They've
responded only to the living. They seem to multiply after absorbing something from the living creatures. Their prey vanishes
without a trace.
I believe the Heartless are taking hearts. They are born from those who've lost their hearts, and
thrive on hearts seized from others. The hearts taken by the heartless become Heartless themselves.
Though I lack
proof, I am confident in this hypothesis. I must also study their behavioral principles.
Though they lack emotions,
they do seem to have some intelligence. How to communicate with them?
It's just occurred to me: Could they be the
darkness in people's hearts?
