Two centuries prior to the events of Knack II, The Crystal Wars when the civilization of Goblins, known once as an advanced race of High Goblins, feuded with humans and sought after energy-potent crystals, which were found only on human territory. Uric, a High Goblin leader and master engineer, created the Ancient Weapons, to eradicate the humans. The High Goblin empire expanded as they continued their onslaught. But Marius and his troops defeated the Ancient Weapons in a single day with the use of rocks and vines, propelling their continuous victories over the course of the war. Once defeated, Urich returned to his laboratory to create more powerful weapons, most notably the Titans, for their final battle against Marius and the humans. While Marius and Urichs fought with their armies, Marius had a strike team attack the city while they were preoccupied, disabling the Ancient Weapon's control center and defeating the High Goblins. Marius and his men's lament destroying the High-Goblins, becoming the very thing they wished to stop. He then found the order of the monks and led people to peace and wisdom. After an unspecified number of years since the events of Knack, New Haven is under attack by four Titans. Lucas indicates that this was his undoing and Knack fights to help correct their unknown wrong-doings. Six months earlier, Lucas is flying with his uncle Ryder and Knack to an island, through a Goblin infested forest, and uncover a monument dedicated to Marius during the Crystal Wars. As they continue, they find a battlefield from the Crystal War, desecrated with the bodies of the vanguards of the Goblin Army. As they linger around, the army rises from the dead and attack the group. Knack protects them and they escape back the plane, making their way back to Doctor Vargas and Charlotte at a monastery in Norcliff to recount their experience. They all gather at the monastery and meet with two monks, Xander, their overseer, and Ava, their youth leader, and decide to seek a mountain pass in the morning to uncover Ancient Weapons in the area.
