Dragon Star Varnir stars the main protagonist Zephy who is accompanied by a group of witches who are cursed to give birth to dragons. Zephy is tasked with hunting these witches originally but soon finds his own fate intertwined with his former enemies. He must then join the group of dragons and fight alongside them in turn-based combat that moves between various layers of the battlefield. The fates of the dragons are in the player’s hands as they make choices on how to take care of them or sacrifice them for additional items and skills.
