Released on year:2016
In an unforgiving realm marred by an unceasing clash between mankind and sorceresses, exists an extraordinary breed known as the "beastfallen" - cursed humans graced with the formidable prowess and visage of untamed creatures. Regrettably, their fearsome nature and appearance render them outcasts among both human and magical realms, evoking fear and disdain in their wake. Consequently, many beastfallen are compelled to eke out a perilous existence as mercenaries, selling their strength and skills to hunt down elusive sorceresses. However, amidst the prevailing animosity and deep-seated prejudices, an ethereal sorceress named Zero offers a glimmer of hope in this dreary tapestry. She enlists the protection of a fabled beastfallen, affectionately dubbed the "Mercenary," in their quest for a mythical tome, the Grimoire of Zero. Said to possess potent incantations capable of reshaping the very fabric of existence, this coveted artifact presents a tantalizing allure—as well as a harrowing threat in the wrong hands. Bound by a peculiar alliance, the Mercenary treads a treacherous path alongside the enigmatic Zero and a prodigious young magician named Albus. Embarking on a relentless pursuit, the trio embarks on an arduous journey through dangerous terrains, unearthing buried secrets, and encountering unforeseen challenges along the way. As their odyssey unfolds, the Mercenary's hardened exterior begins to crack, unveiling an unexpected tenderness that stirs compassion and empathy within him. His once-distorted perception of both humans and witches gradually undergoes a profound transformation, as he endeavors to bridge the ever-widening chasm between their worlds. United by their shared trials and destinies, these improbable allies forge unbreakable bonds, proving that prejudice and animosity can be cast asunder in the face of genuine connection and understanding.
