Gemiya used to live in the Land of Departure with Aqua, Terra and Ventus. Marcus (Her father and space pirate) didn’t want his young daughter to be exposed or to be corrupted by his pirate life and thought the best thing for her was to be raised in a better and caring environment. As a result he sought to find such a place. Eventually he found the Land of Departure and left his young girl there in the arms of Terra who had to talk to Master Eraqus about the situation but before an answer was given. Marcus had left. In time her dream growing up was to become a keyblade wielder and later she’d dream to be a master alongside them.*** (And much later she would learn to hate it) Though she was very young (about five years of age) and unable to fight at the time. During her time there she had formed an extremely close bond to Terra and saw him as her older brother figure. He’d defend her (when being scolded), he’d spend time with her, play with her and even took time to teach her small stances with a smaller and child like toy weapons, when Aqua would advise against it. Aqua was a mother type figure to the girl and Ventus, a friendly rival for Terra’s attention.
During the destruction of the Land of Departure, Gemiya survived within the destroyed building. Aqua came along and using her magic sent her to a safer place while she was unconscious. In which she ended up at the Destiny Islands.
***Gemiya was not passed the power. Ever.
Gemiya has lived on the Destiny Islands since then. Gone to school and such. She had foster parents, an elderly couple, to raise her shortly after being discovered on her own out on the outer island. The young brunette also found friendship in a boy by the name of Riku and of course eventually Sora. Gemiya had a joyful time with Riku and Sora and things couldn’t have been better. Gemiya eventually grew feelings for Riku too. The three were inseparable at first glance. It had been like that for a about a full year, until Kairi came along. When Kairi came into the picture, Gemiya had a horrible feeling about what was to come. Her feeling came to pass as she saw Sora and Riku migrating to her side, leaving her alone and hesitant to make friends with other kids. Despite what anyone has said… Gemiya since then sees nothing good in the red head and from her eyes, Kairi stole her happiness away for herself. Gemiya since then has held a grudge. This grudge would live on for years to come.
Now as for her usual home life on the Destiny Islands. She was taken in by foster parents (an elderly couple) of course. Thing is, no close connection grew. She never thought very highly of them and she was always one to keep her distance from them. They provided for her yes, offered advice when needed yes, but no real bond formed. At all. It just didn’t feel right. Perhaps because she may have believed that her real father was still out there. More than likely because she has a few vague memories of her father as a toddler.
When rumor spread that Riku, Sora and Kairi were planning on leaving the islands soon, Gemiya grew extremely worried and frightened and a bit possessive. She’d try to earn Riku’s attention, but the fear her childhood friend would leave her for someone else grew worse and worse. Until the day the darkness swallowed up their island, her fear had come to pass. Yet she looked for him constantly, but he pretty much had left her from her point of view. Many a time did she question why she kept searching for him, but she continued doing so anyway.
By the time she had found him, he was avoiding her. For reasons concerning Sora and DiZ and whatever else.
During these events… Gemiya didn’t want to go back to the Islands, so instead made a new home base for herself in Twilight Town [Although she still has one on the Destiny Islands, since her fosters had passed away and left the property to her after the events of KHII.] She’d continue traveling, broadening her experiences and learning, attempting to learn more than any person ever could. Thanks to one gift given to her by her Father from the shadows.
Now after the events of KHII, Riku is home and she did what she could to keep their friendship alive. Of course duty called and he had to leave again… once again leaving her behind. Her fear bubbled back up and he was gone for another long period of time.
Through all this, she’s developed a hatred of the keyblade. The keyblade in her eyes is the reason her friends keep leaving. Aqua, Terra and Ven met their demise through it. Her friends left her. And she’s scared of the same thing happening to them.
She greatly dislikes the keyblade and sees nothing good in it. To her, it’s a mark of misfortune, misery and earlier than necessary death.
