The story of Dragon's Dogma begins with its nameless hero living in a small coastal village named Cassadis. This peaceful beginning is interrupted by the sudden arrival of a dragon who takes an interest in the hero, calling him a "chosen one." This interest does not end well for the hero, as the dragon promptly rips out his heart. Somehow, despite the fact that he is missing a critical organ, the hero comes back to life after this event and goes on a quest to kill the dragon who attacked him.
The hero's quest quickly brings him to Gran Soren castle, the home of former dragonslayer King Edmon. There, the hero take on a mission for the king, and presumably gathers the various NPCs who play a critical role in the game's battle system.
