Can friendship and personal justice survive, caught between two warring powers? Fueled by their convictions, a generation of young people take up their swords.
"Where's the justice in this?!
Answer me, Hugo!"
Long ago, this land was
home to beasts the size of mountains.
Mana overflowed from their remains,
drawing people who sought that power,
and civilizations sprang up.
People came to revere
these mana-producing creatures,
which they named "Primordial Beasts."
They built their lives around them.
Thus began the worship of the Primordial Beasts.
Time flowed ever onward, to the present day...
War erupts between the Jerle Federation,
an alliance of countries
who worship the Primordial Beasts,
and the Gildllan Empire,
which has enjoyed explosive development
thanks to advanced technology.
The fires of war are stoked with each passing day.
Leo, a young federation knight-in-training,
heads out to complete a mission in Lunne,
a town formerly under imperial control,
now located near the border.
With him are his childhood friend
and fellow trainee, Celia,
and their instructor, Lisette.
Who should be waiting for them but Hugo,
a former friend turned traitor to the federation,
now a soldier of the empire...

Leo and Hugo's childhood friend. She enters the knight academy with them and joins the ranks of Blaze.

The head of Blaze, possessed of superior combat and leadership skills. With wisdom beyond his years, he's achieved many tactical victories. Off the battlefield, he is kind to everyone, and has a penchant for tea and sweets.
VA: Eric Vale
Friends with Leo and Celia since childhood. Although he is earnest and cares deeply about his friends, he has an awkward tendency to keep his worries to himself. During his time in Blaze with Leo and the others, something causes him to become increasingly distrustful of the federation. A meeting with August finally lures him over to the imperial side.
