I, Lexaeus, will not yield to the frail heart of an infantile coward!
~ Lexaeus
I sense that you do. You're also capable of controlling the darkness. Cast away your useless fear. Open your heart. Embrace the darkness.
~ tempting Riku to the darkness.

Lexaeus, the Silent Hero, is a minor antagonist in Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories. He is a Nobody that serves as the fifth member of Organization XIII and wields an Axe Sword and the power of Earth.


Birth by Sleep

Lexaeus was once Aeleus, one of the guards of the castle in Radiant Garden. He and Dilan confront Ventus when the latter is pursuing King Mickey. However, when the Trinity Armor Unversed arrives, Aeleus and Dilan attempt to help Ventus, but Even reminds them of their duty and reveals that Ansem the Wise needs them. Later, Aeleus throws Lea and Isa out of Hollow Bastion.

Sometime later, Aeleus was attacked by Terra-Xehanort, who turned him into a Heartless and Nobody. This Nobody, named Lexaeus, joined the Organization.

Chain of Memories

Lexaeus is one of the members assigned to Castle Oblivion, along with Vexen, Larxene. Marluxia, and Zexion. He is working with Vexen and Zexion in their own personal scheme.

When Riku arrives in Castle Oblivion, Lexaeus confronts Riku at the end of the fourth basement. After an arduous battle, Lexaeus attempts to finish Riku off, but Xehanort's Heartless promptly possesses Riku and finishes off Lexaeus. As he dies, Lexaeus apologizes to Zexion.

Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix

Lexaeus's spirit later reemerges as an Absent Silhouette and forms at the Sandlot in Twilight Town after Sora, Donald, and Goofy battled a swarm of Nobodies there. If Sora investigates the Silhouette, Lexaeus engages the trio, but is eventually slain.

Dream Drop Distance

Lexaeus is revived as Aeleus along with Dilan, Even, Ienzo and Lea as revealed in Dream Drop Distance. After Lea searches all over Hollow Bastion for Braig and Isa, Aeleus informs Lea that Dilan and Even are still unstable.


Super Strength: Lexaeus is renowned for his strength and uses it to maximum effect. He is capable of becoming invincible at times and was even able to incapacitate Riku after their duel in Castle Oblivion. As an Absent Silhouette, he can also grab Sora and throw him against a pillar.

Geokinesis: Lexaeus is able to wield the powers of the earth in combat. He is capable of generating columns of rock in battle and can create earthquakes with his Axe Sword.



  • Lexaeus's title is the Taciturn Stalwart in the HD 1.5 ReMIX.
  • He is voiced by Dave Boat.
  • Lexaeus's Absent Silhouette manifests at the Sandlot, where the Struggle matches take place. Since the Struggle matches are effectively a test of strength, and Lexaeus desires power and testing others for their power, it's almost appropriate.
    • Even better, back when Roxas joined the Organization, many Organization members (including Lexaeus) trained him at the Sandlot, so it could also be appropriate that he manifests at his training grounds.
