The continent of Arvium. Sixty years ago, these lands bore witness to the arrival of a being henceforth known as the Demon King. Where he appeared from; none could say. Nature itself twisted before His very existence, and it wasn’t long before a horde of demons and monsters fell upon the nations of man.
No matter how many times these heroes struck down the Demon King, death proved to be naught but a temporary setback. He soon returned; He always did.

Driven to desperation, it was the learned men of Arvium who would discover a solution. The Demon’s soul would be pulled from His body, and sealed within that of a human.

In time, these custodians of the Demon King’s soul would come to be known as “Vassals”, recalling the original meaning of the term which was used to define those who entered into a mutual obligation to a lord or a monarch.

In Path of the Midnight Sun, you'll play from the points of view of three protagonists including Lady Faratras Hoikade, who has contained the Demon King’s soul for nearly 21 years.
The people have begun to grow complacent, to truly consider the possibility that perhaps He is sealed for good. But as is so often the case, outward appearances can be deceptive.
