"Magicians are monsters of immeasurable strength. To humanity, we are nothing but monstrosities that masquerade with their faces. Humans are ants we can grind into the stonework; specks of dirt that we can erase with a mere breath. It is this capacity for utter destruction which has become our purpose in the eyes of men. Is it obvious now what our King wants with us during this critical time?" -Reziel
Magicians, though born human like any other, are the gods of the world: monstrously powerful in their gift, but extraordinarily few exist. They are feared or abused rather than revered or worshiped, so magicians tend to choose to live a life away from humans, either has hermits or as nomads. It is only recently that a significant growth in persons of magical ability has been observed, but a majority of the world still disputes their existence.
It is during this time that war erupts in the land.
While other countries chose to arm themselves with legions of steel-plated warriors or ingenious weaponry, the King of Delphine, an avid believer of magicians, decides to arm his land with magicians, promising not only fortunes and small miracles to participants of the war but also persecution towards deserters of the kingdom's call to arms. It is under these circumstances that Aleo, a magician fiercely shielded from society, takes her first steps into the world.
Main character; can be male or female depending on player's choice. Specialty is an affinity to all magic. Aleo is a cheerful, inquisitive youth bordering on 'wild child'. As a hermit with only her unfriendly mentor and a pet for company, Aleo is naive and somewhat detached to situations which would normally affect people, such as war, violence, and death.
Aleo's mentor and guardian. Specialty is Conjuration/Summoning magic (a roc, tiger, and sea serpent are his primary familiars). Reziel possesses an unparalleled ability to manipulate, absorb, and analyze a great deal of information. Unfortunately, his vast intelligence is tempered with a horrible personality. He's generally hated by people, as he is mean-spirited, prideful, possessive, and uncooperative around people he considers beneath him. Despite all his bad points, Reziel is very loyal towards people he trusts, and, despite his massive intellect, he's also very susceptible to baseless flattery.
Part I works as a dating simulation, and consists of leveling relationships and magical stats. These stats are integral to the combat system where armies are pit against armies. Hopefully I can program this so the AI is intelligent enough so it'll be something of a challenge. :'''D
Part II is the VN, which comes after the main storyline of the army is completed. This is where the storylines branch out as the main character attempts to learn the stories behind the character they are pursuing.
