Heaven's Rift---an event which would change the world as we knew it, in the early 16th a crack tore in the sky and from it fell two beings. The embodiment of chaos, taking on the guise of a mass of intertwining serpents levitated by several jet black wings, Orochi, and the upholder of order, in the form of a large four-winged bird engulfed in flames, Rossolyn. The appearance of these two great beasts marked the beginning of the War of the Serpent, a conflict which would extend for the next 500 years, pitting humanity, who sided with Rossolyn, against Orochi and the demonic entities which it controlled. For centuries the war was but a slow massacre as with each passing day humanity's numbers began to dwindle, if looked as if the end was in sight, but just as things approached their bleakest a man rose up with a solution.
Devil Gene---a biological weapon created from the cells of Rossolyn, it granted the host with strength and abilities easily rivaling those of the opposition, however longevity in hosts could not be guaranteed unless the subject was "born" with the gene. And so the Family Project, in which children were created already housing the Devil Gene, began. This may have divided humanity but without these extreme measures they would have never grasped victory, sealed away Orochi, and secure the right to continue existing...
2034---it has been nearly 20 years since the war ended, much reconstruction of the land and civil order has begun, but it has not been easy. The World Peace Organization was formed in the aftermath and has firmly established itself as the sole order in the world, and with the demon threat largely removed this has made many uneasy and small outbursts of "rebellion" occur because of it. And now a new threat challenges the WPO, and the greatest irony lies in the one who issues it. Kyosuke Blackheart, the man who invented the Devil Gene and was revered as a hero, has targeted these words at the entire planet:
"I will finish the job started 20 years ago and eradicate humanity, and on the ashes shall be built a new world, led by my children"
Now the world converges to stop this fallen hero, including one young woman who has a deep and personal vendetta with Kyosuke and the Devil Gene.
===== CHARACTERS =====
An estranged daughter of Kyosuke's, 2 years ago she fled from his side and became involved with a local crime syndicate, but that too was short lived and she disappeared altogether. None have known of her whereabouts are actions since then but there are numerous rumors of the "Raven Hunter". Her agenda in returning to Silent City is clear, she wants to stop her father and end the cursed bloodline that has caused nothing but trouble. She seeks not revenge, but redemption.
A member of the Church of Soldats, an ancient order that once served as the army of Rossolyn but are now reduced to working for the WPO. Although the Church has publicly stated they will observe Kyosuke action without interference, Amy was called on by the group's 2nd in-command and ordered to infiltrate Silent City and procure one of the Gene Children known as the "Black Princess". She does not question her orders but she is not fully sure who she is looking for...
