Marluxia is a character in the Kingdom Hearts series. He is number XI of Organization XIII and is known as the graceful assassin. Marluxia commands the power of flowers and uses a scythe as a weapon. He is the nobody of a currently unknown man.
Marluxia and Larxene knew each other through being members of Organization XIII. They were both sent on a mission to Castle Oblivion. Marluxia had plans to overthrow the organization and Larxene was the only one who was truly loyal to him. They worked together on manipulating Naminé and Sora in order to accomplish their own goals. Marluxia and Larxene often consulted each other on matters such as deeming Vexen a threat to their plans and the decision to completely trust Axel. Marluxia is eventually left to carry his plot all on his own when Sora defeats Larxene.
Marluxia is a fairly popular Kingdom Hearts character, as most organization characters are popular. A lot of fans do find him to be irritating in the final mix of Kingdom Hearts II as his absent silhouette fight is considered to be the hardest. Marluxia is one of four nobodies with no known past. Some fans are bothered by this and others like to speculate his original name. He is most often given the name Lumaria as it refers to a type of flower. When it comes to shipping, Marluxia is often shipped with females such as Larxene and Naminé as well as other male members of the organization.
- Marluxia was supposedly conceptualized as female but was later changed to a male for unknown reasons. The feminine design stayed even after the change.
