In the era shadowed by the imminent awakening of the Savior and the Mother Goddess, there was one country that worried Roel and humankind’s upper echelons: the Austine Empire.

Humankind was united like never before, but the Austine Empire remained an unstable factor threatening to undermine their efforts. The problem lay not with the Austine Empire’s citizens or soldiers but its ruler, Emperor Lukas Ackermann.
