Synopsis

Set on the continent of Atlatan, the nobility of the land fights against demons from another dimension called Chaos that threaten all life using Crests, which give the user supernatural powers. However, the nobels soon become drunk on the Crests’ powers and rather than join forces to defeat the Chaos begin feuding with one another for power and land. Siluca Meletes is a young and talented mage who scorns the feuding lords and Theo Cornaro is a wandering knight and Crest holder who is trying to bring peace to the land. The two join forces together with allies they meet along the way to end the war between the lords and eradicate the Chaos.
