In the year 1999, humanity finally succeeded in creating what became to be known as “magic spells,” which were essentially sources of seemingly unlimited power. And though mankind had discovered the path leading to true wisdom, it was unable to renounce its foolish and destructive ways. Spells intended to help, nurture, and promote world peace were instead corrupted and used as weapons of war. As a result of this gross misuse of power, forbidden biological weapons known as GEARs came into existence. And not long after, as if to punish mankind for its folly, the GEARs developed wills and minds of their own, and inevitably turned against their human masters.
The Crusades, the name given to the war which pitted humanity against their abominable creations, raged for almost a century before the armies of man succeeded in sealing away the harbinger of destruction, Justice. And though peace finally returned to the world, the remnants of the non-human forces lurked in the shadows, biding their time in hopes of one day making humanity atone for the misery their misuse of magic had caused.
A young girl, identifying herself as Ramlethal Valentine, rose up to declare war against all the countries of the world by herself.
And though a lone girl issued such a challenge, there wasn’t an individual, organization, or nation who failed to take her threat seriously. This was due to the fact that the one who attacked and virtually destroyed the capitol city of the Allied Kingdoms of Illyria in what was known as the “Baptism 13 Incident” claimed the name of Valentine as well.
To find out the truth, the nations of the world were forced to rise up and take action.
