The infinte soul also resides or once resided within Noel and Zillion.

- Name (manual or a generated name with the おまかせ/ゆだねる option)
- Gender (male or female)
- Hair color
Aside from the character's name, everything regarding their character's beginning strengths is determined by these starting steps. If the player isn't satisfied with the results they can restart the process and try again.

Although Lulluantha expects the protagonist to inherit Flint's trade, he approves of the protagonist's desires.
As the protagonist searches for Lulluantha, the siblings are approached by headhunters who are hired to take them as their hostages. Xenetes happened to be nearby and he drives them away. Once he learns that they are related to Flint, he pays his regards to his old friend. He quickly excuses himself when Flint's children arrive. They then head to their destination.
Moments before the trio enter Rostorl, the headhunters attack them a second time. They accuse Flint of holding valuable information from their master, Borbora. Although the protagonist and Lulluantha protect themselves, Flint is fatally poisoned by the third ruffian. The protagonist hurries to Rostorl at his father's behest and meets Xenetes by chance. Xenetes carries Flint to the inn where the dying father reveals the truth to his children: he is a secret agent of the Queen Consort of Rostorl Eris. Borbora is a rival power to Eris and had targeted him out of animosity.
Flint's personal dagger, which he had entrusted to the protagonist, holds a message for Eris and he implores the protagonist to deliver it in his stead. He/she follows his/her father's instructions and obtains the antidote from Eris. However, they are too late to save Flint.

One day the trio performs an errand for the town's woodcutter and his wife. The protagonist and Nadge deliver the lunch for the husband while Van helps the wife with household chores. They receive a modest payment for their services, and they promise to help the woodcutter tomorrow. For now, the wife encourages the boys to celebrate.
As Van runs into the town square he bumps into a surly adventurer named Girldlan. Feeling rather cross at the boy, Girldlan attacks them. During their brief skirmish, the adventurer critically wounds and incapacitates Van. Although the protagonist and Nadge retrieve the cure for their friend, Van's father has had enough of their antics. He bans them from seeing Van again and snatches the medicine away from them. The woodcutter is sympathetic for the boys and insists they spend the night in his barn.
Nadge mulls over the incident and is determined to become an adventurer. If he does, he may meet Girldlan again someday and he may have the chance to properly avenge Van.

With the deal done, they turn their backs on the knights who are trying to prevent it from reaching the townsfolk. Osshi, Irene and the hero remain to prevent its advance. When the hero is beaten by the beast, Irene hops to his rescue and slays their foe in a single strike.
The hero sleeps at Irene's house until he is rudely awakened by her the next morning. Irene's mother patronizes her tomboyish behavior and returns the hero's sword to him.

He trains with his departed father's sword with the hopes of becoming a knight. Irene is his faithful childhood friend.
His mentor has tried to investigate the monster's appearance. Rumors say that three talking goblins are the perpetrators for summoning it. Since Osshi's sword arm is not as strong as it once was, he entrusts the hero to look into it for him. Osshi's second errand for the hero is delivering the wine he brewed to the bar waitress. Ferme. When he arrives, he spots Ferme being harassed by a drunken Girldlan and hurries to her rescue. With his task completed the hero reunites with a waiting Irene at the front gate.
Apparently the goblin trio robbed a mystical chalice. The hero and Irene have the mission of reclaiming it in their hideout at the nearby Zegana Mines. Shortly after they enter the mines, the dragon king flies overhead and quakes the ground around him with his flight. The quaking causes the hero and Irene to fall down a pit. They relent to wait for their master to find them until the three goblins land on top of them. The two youths try to capture the trio but are swiftly defeated.
When the hero comes to he finds himself back at Rostorl and learns their master saved them. The goblins had slipped from their grasp.

Since their father, Dadeus, is healing wounded villagers, Roy asks his sister to help him search for healing herbs in the nearby forest. After they defeat a band of wild wolves, he sees promise in her swordplay and recommends that she begin her own training pilgrimage. An ominous woman in dark clothes emerges from the forest and approaches Roy. She hauntingly warns them that she is searching for something before teleporting away with her magic.
The heroine and Roy report back to their father who is worried by the frequency of the attacks. Fearing that the barrier surrounding the holy weapon could be weakening, he orders Roy to investigate. Roy insists on bringing his sister along for studying. The father protests placing his inexperienced daughter into danger but soon relents to his son's request with his blessings.
Both youths soon discover that the sensation they felt in the forest was a ruse. The monsters which surround them stall them from protecting their village from the woman they spotted earlier. After she slaughters several villagers, she absorbs their deceased father's memories into herself. Obtaining what she needed, she decides to reward them with her name, Argyleshire, and conjures a Death Gigas before leaving.

A corrupt minister named Borbora intends to steal it for himself. Rather than bend to his will, the heroine defies him with a group of defiant villagers. She begins her tale by beating some of his ruffians, being aided by Flint and Lemghon.
With Borbora's monster guard dead the heroine rendezvous with her rebel group. They think they have Borbora down on his knees and pave the way for their revolt. An escorting Lemghon warns that he is there to assassinate Borbora as to not prolong further bloodshed. Their revolution would be folly as the surrounding nobility will demand retribution, undoing their hard-earned liberty in a flash. The heroine is given the choice to raise the revolt or hesitate.
If she leads the villagers to riot, she and her brother personally storm Borbora's manor. He reveals his true form as a revolting monster and overpowers the siblings. Lemghon, who had previously left in disgust, arrives to their rescue to slay Borbora. He reveals that he is ordered by the Queen Consort to assassinate Borbora and restores the siblings' health for a rematch. After Borbora flees, Lemghon blames their rash tomfoolery for getting him and the town's welfare into trouble. The siblings fail to protect their father's lands. As compensation, he orders the siblings to accompany him to Rostorl. Through his connections, they are granted amnesty from the king and the heroine is adopted into Lemghon's family. He desires to use her as his eyes in the land.
If she chooses to believe in Lemghon, an aggravated Chaka brazenly leads their followers to revolt. Lemghon urges her to stop the villagers at once, but they are intercepted by Flint. He informs them that Borbora has perished and the ensuing riots have crippled Noble. Flint's occupation as a spy is revealed by Lemghon, who in turn reveals the nobleman's identity to the heroine. Lemghon is the lord of the town who has failed to stop the rebellion in its tracks. After Flint leaves, the nobleman confesses that he personally went there to prevent his younger brother from being involved with Borbora. Although the heroine is stunned, the nobleman prods that they should save Chaka as soon as possible.
After Chaka is rescued, Noble is in ruins and a dead place for the heroine's family. Interested in her potential and capabilities, Lemghon decides to take them with him back to the royal Rostorl palace. He reports the death of Borbora to the Queen Consort of Rostorl Eris. Lemghon introduces the heroine as his younger sister and bids Eris to bestow her a noble title. Despite protest from Eris' elder brother, she and the king permit it.

He quickly introduces her to her personal servant, Sebastian, and looks forward to her seeing her live her new life of nobility.

During their conversation Nemo voices his concern for the odd sensation emitting from the protagonist, as though they were struck by a demon's curse. Orphaus pretends ignorance to avoid disturbing their guests, insisting that they find the chalice instead.
If the protagonist talks to certain individuals in this scenario, it is revealed that their father is one of the Knights of Darkness, Ixbenov. The demon was known as one of Ulugh's loyal generals and was secretly revered as the God of Vengeance. He was reincarnated into the current age as the heir of Rafah family, one of the seven clans of Rostorl's nobility. He married Theresia, a tough and charismatic female pirate, and made a living shipping various cargo. According to supplementary material, his loyalty to Ulugh is as strong as ever.

Each protagonist starts with a standard sword, but they can equip whatever weapon the player desires once the story begins. Here are the different weapon types and their attributes.

The armor that the protagonist chooses to wear alters their 3D model in the field and in battle. There are a set of limited traits affiliated with the four armor types. Certain characters may have their unique variations, but their properties remain relatively consistent with the standard versions.
- Clothes - starting equipment for protagonist. Weakest and cheapest protection.
- Breastplate - light armor with average protection. Recommended for fast characters.
- Body armor - medium plated armor. The most balanced of the armor types.
- Plate armor - heavy full body protection with a focus on defense. Lowers evasion, accuracy, and chances for counters.
