The game subsides in a fantasy world of Eora, a town inside the nation of Dyrwood. The infants born in Dyrwood are Hollowborn upon birth, which means they are born without the soul. The protagonist, in the beginning, experiences an awakening of power, to a distrustful event, after which they realized that they are “Watcher” meaning a person who can see past lives and can communicate with the souls.
