The gamer assumes the role of Aya Brea, a young female cop on the NYPD faced with the task of defeating Eve, an evil entity representing the will of the mitochondria. (Mitochondria are micro-organisms with unique DNA that live and work symbiotically inside of human cells.) The game takes place entirely in New York City, with many backgrounds based on actual locations in the Big Apple. There, Aya must use her police training, weaponry, and latent "mitochondrial energy" to prevent Eve from destroying the human race. Like Final Fantasy VII, PE portrays Aya and other characters as 3D polygonal characters against beautiful static backgrounds. With PE, Square has opted to use more realistically proportioned characters than those found in FFVII, and the game's two CDs are packed with copious amounts of gorgeous full-motion video to advance the story.

One of them is a police officer. The other is possessed by an ancient evil threatening all life on Earth. The horrifying bond between them will continue until something dies.
