Lauriam is a major character from the Kingdom Hearts Union χ game. He is a Keyblade wielder chosen by Master Ava to be one of the 5 leaders of the Dandelions during the First Keyblade War. He is also the original self of the Nobody Marluxia that is one of the main antagonists in the Kingdom Hearts series.
Kingdom Hearts Union χ
During the age of fairy tales, Lauriam is a Keyblade wielder living in Daybreak Town and member of one of the 5 Unions that work collecting light in the form of Lux, in which each Union is led by one of the foretellers. With the day of the prophesied Keyblade War approaching, one of the foretellers, Master Ava, was assigned by the Master of Masters to choose Keyblade wielders to create separate faction called the Dandelions that would move on to another world in order to avoid the light to expire as foretold in the Book of Prophecies. The Dandelions would have their own 5 Unions with their leaders, each chosen by Ava herself.
At the day the 5 new leaders met, after the events of the Keyblade War, Lauriam was the last one to arrive. Following the instructions that Master Ava provided them giving each a rulebook, Lauriam starts to work with the other leaders to reconstitute the old system of the world. But Lauriam also has another goal: to find his missing sister Strelitzia. Strelitzia was also a Keyblade wielder before the events of the war and she was chosen by Ava as one of the Dandelions leaders, but she was attacked (and killed), having her position and rulebook stolen by a currently unknown character. Without knowing what happened to his little sister, Lauriam searches for her. He seeks Elrena (Larxene's original self) who was a member of the Dandelions that knew Strelitzia. Elrena is surprised when she hears that Strelitzia is missing and willing helps Lauriam, but despite their efforts, they are unable to figure out what happened to her.
After Kingdom Hearts Union χ
After the events of Kingdom Hearts Union χ, under unknown circumstances, Lauriam's heart is consumed by darkness and he turns into a Heartless. However, because of his strong will, a Nobody also is created: Marluxia. Marluxia joins the Organization XIII, and there he meets Larxene (Elrena's Nobody). Lauriam seems not to have memories of his previous life, but he soon grows close to Larxene and they eventually plan to overthrow their leader to rule the Organization themselves. Larxene aiding Marluxia's plans paralells her helping him when they were their original selves. However, this fails when they are both defeated and destroyed by Sora. Afterwards, Xenahort revives their Nobodies to be part of the real Organization XIII, but Sora destroys all the members of the Organization again. While he is fading after being defeated the second time by Sora, Marluxia genuinely laughs as he regains the feelings and memories of his previous self, and he seems to have recalled his purpose and what was really important to him. He thanks Sora for this, and disappears smiling heartily to him. With the destruction of his Nobody, Lauriam is recompleted and revived again.
