An undercover assassin seeks to exterminate the Imperials that have darkened her past. A cunning Imperial man promises to help her on her quest for revenge, but at what cost?
This story-rich visual novel blends war action-drama with romance in the Arabian-inspired world of Aradan. Twenty years after the Golden Shift Rebellion, the Setsun Empire seeks to reclaim its territory, including the isolated citadel Nohiria. Iris Lapis, a half-blind belly dancer from Nohiria, seeks to avenge the death of her beloved. She dances at an Imperial tavern, The Spitting Cobra, her playground for hunting Imperial men.
There she meets Seth Salazar, an Imperial assassin tasked with eliminating the elite leaders of the rebellion. Iris finds herself in a vicious game of cat and mouse as Seth promises to provide Iris with information, as long as she cooperates with his vicious plans. As her fake friendship with Seth unfolds into something real, Iris is torn between faithfulness to her country or revenge.
