The Evil King and The Great Hero is an RPG in which you follow the protagonist in which you follow the adventure of a young girl who wants to become a hero to follow in her father’s footsteps.
The game is set in a world that was dominated by the mighty demon dragon king. One day a hero battles the dragon and manages to cut one of his horns, source of his power. Yet, he spares his enemy.
After that, the hero and the dragon form a growing friendship as the former visit the latter while he’s recovering from his wounds.
One day, the hero returns with a serious wound and carrying a baby in his arms. He asks the dragon king to raise his daughter in his stead just before he dies.
The Dragon fulfills the last wish of his friend and raises the girl like she was his own daughter, telling her the stories of her father and instilling in her the wish to become a hero as well.
That is why the dragon raises her with that purpose, even if he knows that one day she might decide to defeat him.
