The Protagonist was created as a Descender by Luminasia's World Tree. The Protagonist awakens at the Rhubarb Mountains and is approached by Kanonno Grassvalley, who asks the Protagonist where he or she is from, but the Protagonist is unaware of anything concerning him or herself, including his or her name. Kanonno brings the Protagonist down to the valley at the foot of the mountain in order to wait for the Van Eltia to arrive. There, Kanonno tells the Protagonist they were just in time as the ship docks. Aboard the Van Eltia, the Protagonist is greeted by Ange Serena, the leader of the guild known as Ad Libitum and allowed the Protagonist to join the guild since they travel around the world and might help regaining his or her memories. Afterward, fellow guild members Mint Adenade, Rubia Natwick, and Will Raynard tell the legend of the Descenders to the Protagonist, along with Kannono, who recognizes the Protagonist may be connected to the legend since the way he or she appears is similar as the description of the legend.
