Dragon Quest Swords[]

Five years ago, there was a great war between man and an evil demon known as Xiphos the Deathbringer. Through many hardships, a team of warriors defeated Xiphos. Five years later, the Hero, the son of Claymore, who was one of the warriors who fought Xiphos, turns sixteen and is chosen to go through a trial to become a warrior. (The Hero's mother is never seen or named, but is still alive; Claymore mentions early in the game that she is away on a journey.)

He succeeds in the tasks and the next day, Prince Anlace asks the Hero to accompany him through the Galantyne Glades, where he saw his mother, Queen Curtana, head off to. There, the Hero defeats Briquet, and proceeds towards a hut, where the Queen is seen wearing a strange mask. She walks away without saying a word. They also meet Fleurette, whose brother Aruval fought in the war against Xiphos. She mentions she saw the mask the Queen was wearing as a child.

Fleurette heads to town and the next day, asks the Hero to accompany her to Arondight Heights to examine the carving she saw of the mask, depicting a battle against Xiphos, who was wearing the mask. Fleurette explains that the war against Xiphos five years ago was not the first war against him. She concludes that the mask has Xiphos's spirit and is possessing the Queen.

They head back to town and, while Fleurette briefs Anlace, the Hero and Claymore hear reports of a monster in the Secace Seacove. After beating the monster, Fleurette arrives to defend the monster from Claymore's finishing blow. She says that the monster is Aruval. The creature escapes into the water. The group leaves and learns that the Queen was seen at the Tower of Mirrors. When they reach the top of the tower, they find the Queen has activated a portal in a mirror. The Hero slashes the mask in half, hoping to save the Queen. However, Xiphos appears in the portal, revealing that although his spirit was not destroyed five years ago, the mask kept him contained when he tried to possess the Queen.

They take the Queen home when a mountain near Mount Arondight collapsed in a sea of lava and a castle rose up in its place. They know that without the mask, Xiphos can't be defeated. Dao , an old swordmaster, explains that the mask was made in the Mirror World and if the mask is to be repaired, they must enter the dimension by heading for the Tower of Mirrors. They make their way through the dimension and battle Draug. After they beat him, he repairs the mask and gives the Hero the Rednusadner, a powerful Blade that can hurt Xiphos and help them get to his castle. The Hero goes to Swordmaster Dao who teaches him the Figure of Fate, a legendary technique of the Rednusadner that created splits the sea of lava that surrounds the castle. After crossing the path, they encounter Golok the Gatekeeper, who the team defeats.  After entering the castle and fighting many tough enemies, they make their way to Xiphos's throne room. They also find Aruval in the middle of the room. Xiphos enters Aruval's body and gets his body back. He then engages the Hero in combat. After defeating Xiphos, the demon admits he underestimated the group. He turns into his true form, which looked nothing like the carving. Though it is a tough fight, the Hero subdues the demon long enough for the mask to place itself on Xiphos. The mask petrifies the demon and the Hero shatters the statue, destroying Xiphos. Aruval appears out of the rubble, now completely human. With Xiphos dead for all time, his castle starts to crumble down. Everyone tries to get out of the throne room when the Hero fall down the pit. Fleurette grabs him and the others pull him up. Back at the town's castle, a great party is held in the Hero's honor. He makes his way to a balcony and raises the Rednusadner to the sky, causing all the citizens to cheer.

  • In keeping with the Dragon Quest Swords quirk of all characters being named after a sword, Fleurette nicknames the Hero "Blade."
