Prologue: Beyond the Savior's Outstretched Hands

Armed with the power of Aether, the player and Matoi are recruited by Xiao to enact a daring plan: to rescue [Persona] from the throes of the Profound Darkness, thus destroying it for good. However, when the plan goes awry, the player finds themselves astray in a bizarre alternate universe of medieval proportions. When the spirit of the host of the first Klariskrays makes her appearance, it's up to the player to stop the alternate dimension, formally known as "Omega", from spreading and consuming the outside world.

Chapter 1: Salvation

Several decades have passed since the player originally arrived in Omega. The Ephemeral, a mysterious flower with the power of corruption, has turned the continent upside down, and the country of Cuento is now besieged by its power. The remnants of the royal family, Harriette and Luther, have gathered a small resistance to stop the evil Lutz from abusing the power of Ephemeral any further. With the player seemingly being the "chosen one" as foretold by an ancient prophecy, they must ally themselves with the resistance if they hope to put an end to the corruption.
