Synopsis

Van is a leader of the resistance group "Dokukaku" in a small kingdom called Akafa. Van has been a slave at the Akafa rock salt mine since he was captured when his hometown was annexed by the Tsuoru empire. He lives thinking about eventual death every day, when suddenly wild dogs attacked the Akafa rock salt mine. Van was bitten by one of the dogs but he survived, and an unknown power appeared in his body.

All slaves and administrators bitten by the dogs in the mine died, not leaving one. Van, who survived alone, finds a slave's daughter and names her Yuna, and then leaves the mine.

Around that time, a doctor called Hossal was investigating a mysterious disease called "Black Dogs Diseases (Mitthal)", caused by a bite from a dog that kills people. When he visited the Akafa mine and found out that Van survived from the diseases, he started to follow after him to take a pathogen in Van's body.

Van and Yuna, who survived the war and lived a lonesome life by herself, start a tough but happy life together. Hossal fights against the diseases that led to the end of his ancestors. How will the faith of these two lead each other?

A fantasy of war and medicine told by Nahoko Uehashi, well known for "The Beast Player" and "The Guardian Series".
