Vagrant Story (ベイグラントストーリー Beiguranto Sutōrī?) is a Japanese-developed action role-playing game developed and published by Square (now Square Enix) for the PlayStation video game console. The game takes place in the fictional kingdom of Valendia and the ruined city of Leá Monde. The story centers on Ashley Riot, an elite agent known as a Riskbreaker, who must travel to Leá Monde to investigate the link between a cult leader and a senior Valendian Parliament member, Duke Bardorba. In the prologue, Ashley is blamed for murdering the duke, and the game discloses the events that happen one week before the murder.
