Norune Village (also known as Nolun Village in the PAL version) is a location in Dark Cloud. It is a small village, home to 14 residents, including the main protagonist. It is located to the north of Matataki Village. The Divine Beast Dran protects Norune Village, and lives in Divine Beast Cave.
Norune Village was once a very happy and peaceful village. The main protagonist of the game Toan, as was stated earlier, lives in the village and was raised there by his mother Renee. The Divine Beast Dran is the key feature to the village, and he resides in the dark and mysterious Divine Beast Cave.
In one of their many festivals, Norune Village members were gathering around a large bonfire dancing. All of a sudden things went in to complete and utter chaos when the terrible Dark Genie was summoned by strange dancers and a man named Flagg. The genie then completely destroyed the village, leaving everything in complete ruins.
During the Genie's attack one of the town's windmills was about to fall on Toan's best friend, Paige. Toan ran to saved her but died in the process. He was later revived by Simba, the Fairy King. Although the Dark Genie had destroyed Norune village, Simba had sealed the village and it's inhabitants in the Atla to protect them from the attack. The Dark Genie's attack had scattered the Atla inside the Divine Beast Cave.
Simba gives Toan the Blue Atlamillia and sets him off on his journey. Toan then visits the Mayor, who was the only person to survive the attack. The Mayor gives Toan the key to the Cave so that he can find Dran, The Protector Of Norune Village. Toan then travels inside the cave battling monsters and collecting Atla.
During his journey, Toan meets Xiao and Seda. Xiao was a stray cat wondering the Divine Beast Cave. Seda challenged Toan for his Atlamillia. After the fight, Seda decides that Toan is the rightful owner of the Atlamillia, and gives him a Changing Potion that will transform Xiao into a Neko-cat (half-human, half-cat).
Toan rebuilds Norune Village, then heads back into the cave to confront Divine Beast Dran. Dran is found to be under the Dark Genie's spell, and after Toan wins the fight, Dran gives him a world map, making it possible to teleport between locations. With Norune Village safe, Toan moves on to Matataki Village.
