However, on the fifth day of the 12th month in the year 767 of the King’s Calendar, Camellia erupts into violent rebellion, and monstrous demons appear, and the kingdom of Hortensia is plunged into a whirlpool of war. The story follows a group of young knights whose fates are caught up in the tragic conflict.
