In La Pucelle, you play as a young lady (who hunts demons) named Prier who wishes to become a priestess. The game is a turn based strategy that also has a monster capturing element to it. Rather than captures them (in the good ol' Pokemon fashion) you actually have to purify them and convert them to your side.

Prier and her younger brother have just joined the churches Demon Hunting group. There is a prophecy among the church that says that the Dark Prince will rise to raise chaos upon the land but a warrior Maiden will be the Champion of light and bring about his downfall. Prier has joined the church thinking that she will be that Maiden.
