In the beginning of the game, the hero and their mentor, Aquila, are seen protecting two innocent humans; Erinn and her grandfather. They are soon made targets for an ambush consisting of a Cruelcumber and its two Slime friends. After a battle with Aquila's assistance, they are rewarded with a crystal of Benevolessence from Erinn's prayer.

When the hero bestows the Benevolessence to the majestic World Tree, they return to the protectorate, upon the request of Apus Major(?). Their new task is to collects a few more crystals of Benevolessence and then gift them to Yggdrasil. During their job, Aquila visits Angel Falls and the hero. He informs the player that there is a ghost lurking about and asks them to help it into the afterlife. Once this is done, the last crystal of Benevolessence is claimed, and the hero is taken back to the Observatory. Here, Yggdrasil is given the collected Benevolessence, with many Celestrians watching. An FMV occurs in which we see the hero, Aquila, and Apus Major witnessing the creation of the divine Fyggs; heavenly fruit with mysterious powers. However, the Observatory is struck by a bolt of dark energy, and the hero descends into the Protectorate, along with the Fyggs. This begins the true story of the game.

Dragon Quest XI 3DS and SwitchEdit

The Observatory is the first location available through the altar of the starry skies in the Echo Chamber. Only the zenith of the building is available to explore, with Aquilla, Pavo, and a slime present. The former two are astonished that a party of mortals made it to the realm, and doubly so that they can see the angels on top of that.

Aquila is concerned over a fygg going missing, and only has a scant clue to work with in finding it. The player is prompted with helping the celestrian, and he mentions that when he searches his mind, the words "Ruby Path of Doom" are all that appear. With this clue, the Luminary and his companions head out to the grotto and find that a Liege lizard is the culprit behind the fygg's disappearance. After defeating the dragon, it is revealed to be nothing more than a slime that wished with all its heart to become as strong as it could. Sparing the glob of goo, the Luminary returns with the fygg to Aquilla's amazement.

Fortune Street Edit

The Observatory appears as a board in Fortune Street, where the switches will move a district around the main board section as if it were the starflight express.
