The original Disgaea 4: A Promise Unforgotten video game revolves around Valvatorez, a vampire demon who used to be extremely powerful and feared. However, due to a promise with a human not to drink human blood, he has been reduced to a Prinny Instructor in Hades, and now feeds off of sardines. Along with his werewolf servant Fenrich, he aims to overthrow Hades' government. Later on, he meets Fuka, a Prinny who was only given a Prinny hat due to shortages of Prinny hide; Emizel, the Netherworld President's spoiled son; and Vulcanus, a mysterious angel who has an eye for money.
