Life seems ideal within the utopian confines of Olympus, a shining beacon in a post–World War III wasteland, but perfection is always an illusion. Stalking the ruins of New York City is Artemis, a renegade, flesh-eating bioroid (enhanced artificial human) carrying data critical to the future of Olympus, and the elite ESWAT is sent in to tranq her and bring her back to Olympus.
But when Artemis recovers during transit, the powerful combat bioroid brings down the transport ship and escapes into Olympus. ESWAT agents Deunan and Briareos are dispatched to bring in the feral Artemis, but will they emerge as heroes... or lunch?
Story and art by Shirow Masamune.
