Boco is actually a chocobo and he takes him off where ever he goes, but later as Meteorites start to fall he encounters lone survivors from Meteorite crashes. First he doesn't know what to expect, then later as things unravel he becomes one of the five key characters in the game to stop the evil that has been plagued upon the Earth.
