The island Demurin was home to many
friendly monsters and an orphan boy named Dai. One day a man named
Aban and his disciple, Pop arrived to train. It was going smoothly
until Hadora, the King of Evil and an old enemy of Aban's showed up.
Aban had defeated Hadora 30 years ago
and now he was out for revenge. To Aban's surprise, Hadora had become
much more powerful since their last encounter. Aban tried his best,
but Hadora had the upper hand. In desperation, Aban cast Megante but
to no avail. Hadora left Demurin with world conquest on his mind.
Dai and Pop left Demurin to avenge their
master and bring peace to the world. But, they soon learn that Hadora
is not their biggest threat because he's only the second in command
to Vern, the God of Evil. Like any Dragon Quest adventure,
Dai and Pop join up with a few companions on their journey. They first
meet Maam, a martial artist and then Princess Leona who serves as
the group's healer. Together they face off against Vern's armies and
commanding generals; Hyunkel, leader of the Immortals Army, Crocodin,
leader of the Beast Army, Freezard, leader of the Fire and Ice Army,
Saboera, leader of the Wizard's Army, Myst, leader of the Shadow Army,
and finally, Baran, leader of the Dragons Army. Crocodin and Hyunkel
eventually join after Dai defeats them. He also eventually learns
that Baran is his father.
