Lyle begins Phantasy Star III as a mysterious stranger, who Rhys must search out to make progress on the quest to locate Maia, who was kidnapped during her wedding to Rhys. The two men meet again when Lyle's homeland is beset by an unnatural snow storm. Both of them need to alter the machines controlling the weather of the area for their own reasons. Lyle wants to save his home, while Rhys must pass through to find his bride. The two become fast friends, though Lyle will spend the rest of his life hiding a secret that would destroy that friendship if Rhys were to discover it: Lyle was the one who kidnapped Maia!

Following in the footsteps pioneered by Phantasy Star II, Phantasy Star III: Generations of Doom gave each playable character an individual head shot portrait to make them more recognizable to players. This was especially vital for this game, which tended to use the same set of graphics for several characters with slight color changes. Unlike the similar pictures of Nei and friends, however, these portraits were used for speech in important story scenes and the standard character menu. The previous game restricted the portrait availability to Rolf's house, but this one allowed the players to see the characters at any time they were available for play.
