Kurou Daijuuji is a poor detective living in Arkham City. One day, he was requested by Ruri Hadou of Hadou Financial Group, to search for a magic book. While he initially refused, Ruri offered him a large sum of money upon completion of her request, in which bribed Kurou to accept. As Kurou searches for the book, he unexpectedly runs into Al Azif, a pretty girl that is actually a powerful grimoire. They forge a contract with each other, bestowing Kurou with powerful magic. Soon afterwards, Al also activates Demonbane, a deus machina owned by the Hadou Financial Group, to combat the mechanical menace from the Black Lodge. With this, the war between the Hadou Financial Group and the Black Lodge begins.
Demonbane takes place primarily in a region resembling the Lovecraft Country common to several of the Mythos stories, including Herbert West-Reanimator and The Shadow Over Innsmouth. The majority of the plot is confined to Arkham City, the home and headquarters of the Hadou Financial Group as well as the location of the Miskatonic University. Arkham City is also the territory of acriminal organization known as the Black Lodge, which has access to an array of giant mecha as well as a number of powerfulsorcerers that make it difficult for law enforcement to effectively combat. A separate portion of the story is set in the coastal town of Innsmouth and one of the climactic battles takes place over the sunken city of R'lyeh. The town of Dunwich is also referenced.
