If you saw the Kingdom Hearts IV reveal trailer, you were probably very excited that the series is about to move forward. After waiting far too long for Kingdom Hearts III, it’s nice to have announced this new game in a respectable timeframe, although we still don’t know how long it will be before we can play it. While all Kingdom Hearts fans will recognize Sora, who was this other person that showed up with him? Her name is Strelitzia. Here’s what you need to know about them.

Strelitzia is a character you would only know if you played the Kingdom Hearts: Union X mobile title. While Sora has never interacted with her prior to Kingdom Hearts IV, there is a longer connection here. Strelitzia is the sister of Lauriam, the human version of Marluxia, a member of Organization XIII.
Strelitzia is a Keyblade wielder from the time of the Keyblade War. At the time of the war, Ava chose her to become part of the Dandelions, a group of paragon Keyblade wielders chosen to flee battle to preserve their light.
So why is Strelitzia in quadrate? She was actually killed by the Darkness within Ventus, a being we now know to be called Vanitas. In the reveal trailer, she mentions that Quadratum is a kind of “posterity” for both her and Sora. That’s because she’s long dead, and Sora is now “dead” after sacrificing himself to bring back Kairi with the power of awakening in Kingdom Hearts III.
