- Main article: Story of Phantasy Star III: Generations of Doom
The game begins in the city-state of Landen just before the marriage of Prince Rhys and the mysterious Lady Maia, who had washed up on the shores two months prior. Just as the vows were to be read, the bride was kidnapped by a flying dragon-like Layan spouting, "Filthy Orakian! Maia will not be yours!" before disappearing with the lovely princess to be.
Prince Rhys, beside himself with grief and anger begins to set off with an army to find his bride and to destroy all of the last remaining Layan descendants but is soon stopped by his father, the king, and is told to cool his heels in the dungeon beneath the castle. He is soon let free though by Lena who wishes him well on his journey to find his bride.
Throughout Rhys's quest to find his fiancé, he finds relics of the legendary war and makes alliances with strange bedfellows and old friends. His progeny take the story from after he finds Maia and soon realize that the world in which they live and history itself isn't what it appears to be.
