The setting of Knights Contract takes place in a fictional version of Europe during the Middle Ages with dark fantasy characteristics, involving witchcraft, sorcery, and otherworldly monsters. A superstitious hatred for witches is the norm for society. As a result, people are able to employ witch-hunters and witch-executioners. The game follows Heinrich Hofmann, an experienced witch-executioner plagued by a curse, and a young woman named Gretchen, who is the reincarnation of a witch that Heinrich formerly executed. In an act of revenge for her execution, Gretchen curses Heinrich with immortality.
At the same time, the world is being afflicted by hordes of monsters. Gretchen, who intends to fully live out her life as she could not before, decides to confront the menace directly by joining forces with the cursed executioner, Heinrich. The now-immortal Heinrich is forced to protect the mortal Gretchen from danger, in hopes of undoing the curse.
