Ori fell from the Spirit Tree in the forest of Nibel during a storm and was adopted by a bear-like creature named Naru, who raised Ori as her own. A cataclysmic event soon makes the forest wither, and Naru dies.
Newly orphaned Ori was left to explore the forest on its own. After collapsing near the Spirit Tree of the forest and being restored to life by it, Ori later meets Sein /saɪn/, a being who both guides Ori on its adventure and attacks enemies. In order to restore the forest, Sein guides Ori to recover the light of three main elements supporting the balance of Nibel: Waters, Winds and Warmth.
