Bastion takes place in the aftermath of the Calamity, a catastrophic event that suddenly fractured the city of Caelondia and most (if not all) of the game's world into many pieces, disrupting its ecology and turning most of its people into fragile statues. Players take control of The Kid, a silent protagonist who awakens on one of the few remaining pieces of the old world and sets off for the titular Bastion, where everyone agreed to go in troubled times. The only survivor he meets there is an elderly man named Rucks, who instructs him to collect the Cores which once powered Caelondia. A device in the Bastion can use the power of the crystalline Cores to create landmasses and structures, as well as enable the Kid to travel farther afield via "Skybridges" which propel him through the air. Rucks acts as the narrator throughout the game, revealing plot background and describing the Kid's actions in real-time.
