Two generations ago, the dark dragon Daevourus invaded the lands of Wyvernia. As his dominion grew, so did his power of corruption, twisting the continent's elemental magic into something monstrous. Only Elysia, the cultural and geographical heart of Wyvernia, remains free of his ravenous fog.
Genesis takes place as Daevourus begins his final assault on Elysia. Vallech Elysiani, High Custodian of the Solphaeon Temple, has called upon the heroes of Wyvernia to defend the last stronghold against the darkness.
