After a Great Chasm suddenly tears the earth apart, the world of Luxendarc is plunged into darkness. The four elemental crystals which bring light to the world – fire and water, wind and earth – are consumed by an overwhelming force, disrupting the very balance of nature. Once-dormant volcanoes erupt once more; oceans grow murky and perilous.
Agnès Oblige, the vestal of the Wind Crystal, is spared when the resident acolytes of her temple sacrifice their lives to shield her from the horror that besets the Wind Crystal. Guided by a cryst-fairy called Airy, Agnès sets out on a journey to awaken the crystals and bring light back to Luxendarc.
Amid this catastrophe Norende Village is completely engulfed by the Great Chasm, leaving Tiz Arrior behind as its sole survivor. Determined to rebuild his home and right the wrongs that the darkness has brought to Luxendarc, Tiz joins Agnès on her quest.
