Rune Balot is a prostitute nearly murdered by Ciel, an enigmatic casino manager who suffers from a disease that forces him to remove and store his memories. While on the brink of death, she is given the opportunity to live. It is not a simple choice for a life-long victim, but Rune takes it. A professor brings Rune back to life as a cyborg with the ability to control electronics and partners her up with a self-aware universal tool named Oeufcocque. Together they begin to unravel the mystery behind Ciel. Rune works to shed the role of the victim, but must struggle between seeking justice and vengeance.
