StoryEdit

The young man Orphen engages in money lending activities in the back streets of the commercial city of Totokanta. Once, he was known as one of the Tower of Fang's most promising black sorcerers.

One day, Orphen was approached by Volcan and Dortin, who had a very profitable money-making scheme set up. Under the guise of wealthy merchants, they set forth toward the Everlasting household to partake in marriage fraud. But, there was one problem: Volcan's plan was full of holes, leading one of the sisters to find out about their plan too. Then suddenly, a huge monster attacks the mansion.

Among all the commotion, one name rings out: Azalie. This monster was what he was looking for five years: his older sister Azalie who transformed into a monster. Between those who seek to kill the monster and Orphen, giving everything to protect the monster, his peaceful days are at an end.

Trying to turn his sister, Azalie, back to her true form leads to a myriad of mysteries and, ultimately, the key to the secret to the world.
