Utawarerumono is about Hakuoro, everything about him is a mystery. The mask that he can't remove, a past he can't unravel and the very survival of the people who have chosen him as their leader. What Haruoro doesn't know is that he was gravely injured in a forest and left for dead.
A kind, young girl named Eluluu found him and nursed him back to health. Welcomed into a barren land where strange creatures roam, an angry god seeks vengeance and an oppressive government slaughters the innocent, while a bloody war looms on the horizon. Will the masked hero be able to liberate the people who saved him? Can he unlock the memories that elude him, or will he remain a stranger, even to himself?
