Prologue

Do you know of the adventurer Adol Christin?

The extraordinary adventurer Adol Christin has challenged many adventures in his lifetime, and left behind over a hundred of volumes of “Adventure Journals” detailing his adventures.

This story is one volume of his “Adventure Diary.” Written in the “Goethe Sea Guidance Chronicle,” this is one of Adol’s adventures—.

“Siren Island.”

Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana

In an archipelago of South Greek, in the waters of the Goethe Sea, rumor has it that a mysterious ship was sunk.

Adol is aboard a passenger ship called “The Lombardy” heading from Xandria towards the continent of Eresia, when the ship is suddenly attacked by a huge oceanic creature, and together with its passengers, sunk.

When he wakes up, he is on a glittering white sandy beach. Adol notices the open see offshore.

This is “Siren Island,” known otherwise as the “forever cursed island.”

The island is of primitive nature untouched by man. It has strange creatures that evolved differently from those of the outside world. The island is dotted with mysterious ruins of ancient civilizations, as well.

Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana

In order to rescue the passengers drifting ashore and defend themselves from the “Ancients” that attack humans, Adol builds a “Drifting Village” as a base.

Before long, Adol has a strange “dream” on this island. There is a mysterious girl with blue hair, and she lives in an unknown world.

Why is this island known as the “forever cursed island”? What is the hidden mystery of this island? And who is the girl who appeared in Adol’s dream?

Buried in the waves of legend on a solitary island in the distant sea, Adol’s new adventure begins.
