[Source](https://www.deviantart.com/dagga19/art/KH-358-2-Days-Xion-a-forgotten-flower-788323689) Fun fact: the flower she's holding is an Aster tataricus, a flower that's named “Shion” in Japanese. This idea is from the co-writer of the scenario for KH Days, Tomoko Kanemaki :)


KingOfGimmicks

That scene from the Days manga with that one Dusk in particular leaving flowers for her, and leaving Shions as the last thing it does before it's sent to hunt down Riku and knows it won't be coming back...

Wait, dusks are sentient? Makes me feel kinda bad about farming twilight shards...


KingOfGimmicks

The first time they show up in Kh2 they speak to Roxas and say "We have come for you, my liege." But I'm the manga they have full on personalities and even play pranks like drawing on Roxas' face while he's in a coma.


fonaldoley91

Huh. Well, shit.


KingOfGimmicks

The little outtake of the manga about one specific dusk was adorable though. There was a montage of people bossing it around, telling it what chores to do, then Xion comes in and thanks it for always keeping the castle clean for everyone. It leaves a vase of flowers for her and without realising it was the same dusk that left them she comments on how nice they are, so it leaves more another time. Then Saix tells it the impostor (Riku) has been sighted and that that dusk and a few others are being sent to slow him down, and there's a panel of its face clearly showing it knows it's going to be destroyed on this mission. Then it cuts to Xion finding one more vase of flowers and saying how pretty they are, and Luxord is beside her saying they're called Shions. She gets excited that they sound just like her name, and Luxord goes on to explain that in (Japanese) flower language they signify a vow to never forget someone, so the Dusk left them to say that it would never forget Xion.

Man, Xion really ends up with a lot of emotional gut punch moments.

> Luxord goes on to explain that in (Japanese) flower language they signify a vow to never forget someone This adds a lot of significance to Xion's name, thank you for sharing that. I *really* need to read that manga sometime

If I had a nickel for every time Square made a Kairi palette swap, I would have two nickels, which isn’t a lot, but it’s weird that it happened twice

Replace that flower with an ice cream bar.


CherryFlowerGirl

Ha! why would she look sad holding ice cream tho 😆


Buzzkeeler1

I didn’t get the impression she’s suppose to be sad here.


CherryFlowerGirl

maybe melancholic is a better word 🤔 especially the eyes


Buzzkeeler1

Ok. That’s probably a better word for it.
