Characters

Taiu.png

Taiu

The player character of the story. Taiu is a young orphan who grew up on port Nali, a peaceful fishing village. He dreams of becoming one of Qira's Apostles, a group of elite warrior monks who dedicate themselves to the service of the goddess qira and her people. 

Teach.png

Teach

Taiu's zany teacher. Teach is a former apostle whose obsession with mastery has lead him to seek a disciple to train in the art of combat. As Taiu's master, Teach takes it upon himself to push Taiu to his limits and beyond, sometimes at the risk of his dear student's life.

Ooma.png

OOMA

The elder of Port Nali. Ooma's long life of hard earned lessons have imbued her with great wisdom, enough to doubt even the most sacred traditions. Her disapproval in Taiu's path and distaste for his teacher are rooted in questions of faith, ones she's sought the answers to her whole life.

Enemies

Lineup.png

The Denari army are a terrible force powered by advanced weaponry and dark magic. From the brutish Beast to the fire-wielding Crone, the Denari are able to adapt to and overpower any force that stands in their way.

To make matters worse, Their general, "the Summoner" possesses the power to teleport his soldiers from afar, enabling the army to cross continents and conquer new territories efficiently.

To stop the invasion for good, Taiu must face the Summoner and defeat him.
