(Subject to change)
Why do you have to get married and have kids? A long time ago, a man fell in love with a Rainbow Girl who came from the heavens. She gave him a Rainbow Sword, which the man used to defeat monsters and eventually became known as a hero. Then a demon king came and wrecked the world. The hero rose up and fought the devil king, but died in battle. To keep his spirit alive, three girls carried his soul to pass down to the next generation along with the Rainbow Sword so one day one of his descendants could defeat the devil king.
Rain is the first hero in Record of Agarest War Marriage. He’s been training to defeat the devil king and he’s destined to fail since the game has multiple generations. (spoiler alert?) He can fall in love with Paninya (a dancer who excels in magic and carries an oversized scythe), Farsia (his childhood friend) or Kunka (a catgirl with a childish personality).
