Ys IX: Monstrum Nox follows the story of renowned adventurer Adol “the Red” Christin and his companion Dogi who arrive in Balduq, a city annexed by the Romun Empire, only for Adol to be detained before entering. While in prison, he meets a mysterious woman named Aprilis who turns him into a Monstrum, a being with supernatural gifts and the power to exorcise monsters.
Now, Adol must ally himself with his fellow Monstrums to defend against the terrible threats that emerge from a dark dimension called Grimwald Nox, as well as unraveling the mysteries of the Monstrum curse and the truth behind the disturbances in Balduq.
