The storyline of Arthdal Chronicles is centered around the ancient city of Arthdal, established on Arth. Eunseom is a character who relentlessly fights to protect his own tribe. Eunseom may appear innocent-looking, but his protective instincts are quite strong that he does not hesitate to be aggressive when attacks are imminent. Tagon, a son of Sanung who is the leader of Saenyeok Tribe, is a character who is very charismatic and most talented, yet overwhelmingly dangerous as he buries his feelings so deeply that no one knows when he will explode with anger and rage. Alongside Eunseom and Tagon are Tanya and Taealha. Tanya is the successor of Wahan Tribe clan mother, who realizes her destiny to lead and protect her own people against other powerful tribes.
