Synopsis

The democratic nation of Patria resides on the Patrian Continent. Due to an economic discrepancy, the country has been engulfed in a civil war for a long time leading to the rise of two countries, The Northern Patria Union and the Southern Patria Alliance. The north, about to be destroyed by the south due to its inferiority, as resorted to using forbidden magic in order to defeat the south. The art created soldiers who appeared as grotesque humans and in exchange for their forms, gave them powers equivalent to the gods themselves. Thanks to their power, the long battle ended and society was ushered into an era of peace.

These ‘incarnates’ as they were known, were revered as patriotic saviors of the North. Time has now passed, and the war has become nothing more than a thing of the past. Now, Incarnates, with their immense powers, are no longer revered, but instead looked at in disdain and referred to simply as ‘beasts.’

Hank is a former commander of Incarnates, traveling to hunt down a fellow Incernate and former war buddy who has lost his humanity, becoming just a mere ‘beast’. That is when Nancy Shaal Bancroft comes charging in and meets Hank, the Incarnate she has set out to kill for killing her father. After learning the truth behind the death of her own father, she decides to join Hank in his journey. It is then that she finally learns the real reason as to why their fight must continue. At the same time, Hank is searching for the existence of a man who is said to turn Incarnates back into humans. Where will the road of traveler Hank, an Incarnate who must carry the sins of killing his own kind, end exactly?
