Introduction

Welcome back to Mistarcia—the mystical world where humans, gods, and demons exist side by side.

A decade has passed since Bahamut nearly destroyed the world. A new human king has assaulted the temples of the gods and conquered the lands of the demons.

Demons have been enslaved to reconstruct the city, and the gods have grown weak as faith wanes.

Once on brink of collapse, the royal capital now brings prosperity to humans.

Humans, gods, and demons will clash in this world robbed of balance.

Characters

Nina Drango
Voice: Sumire Morohoshi

"Now for another hard day's work!"

She is a bounty hunter who's come to the big city to make a living. The citizens of the capital love her happy-go-lucky personality.

Charioce XVII
Voice: Yuuichirou Umehara

"Kill all who dare oppose me."

He is a calculating king who is willing to resort to any measure as long as it fits his goal. Fearing neither god nor demon, he wields forbidden power stolen from the gods themselves.

Favaro Leone
Voice: Hiroyuki Yoshino

"There's not a woman I don't know!"

He ekes out a living as a bounty hunter. Although he was knighted for his part in sealing away Bahamut, he has cast off his title and set off for a meandering journey.

Kaisar Lidfard
Voice: Go Inoue

"There's no point in dying here and now!"

Once the disgrace of a long lineage of knights, he recovered his noble title and his honor by helping to seal away Bahamut a decade ago. He now serves King Charioce as knight captain. Kaisar is honest to a fault and serious as well.

Azazel
Voice: Masakazu Morita

"Even death won't stop me."

After defying the gods, he has become a fallen angel. He loathes humans for oppressing his demonic brethren.

Rita
Voice: Miyuki Sawashiro

"I'm Rita. Doctor Rita."

She is a zombie necromancer who looks like a child but has lived more than 200 years. She works in the capital as a shadowy doctor, accepting any patient whether divine or demonic.

Bacchus
Voice: Hiroshi Iwasaki

"What do you mean exiled! I left on my own, idiot!"

He is a god who loves to drink. He was exiled from the land of the gods and now supports himself through managing bounty hunters.

Hamsa
Voice: Showtaro Morikubo

"I'm no mere duck. I'm a god."

He is no mere duck, but a divine being who travels with Bacchus. Even though he comanages the bounty hunters, they all think of him as Bacchus's pet.

Jeanne D'arc
Voice: Megumi Han

"God is my protector!"

Though a divine revelation, she was chosen as the saint who would lead the gods against the demons. She was the commander of the Orleans Knights stationed in the capital.

Mugaro
Voice: ???

He is a lost child that accompanies Azazel and helps out at the demon funeral home.

Sofiel
Voice: Maaya Sakamoto

"Inform me when you've found the child!"

She is an angel in service to Gabriel and a candidate to become one of the four archangels. Disguising herself as human, she has come to the capital on assignment.

Dias Bardolomew
Voice: Yasuhiro Mamiya

"Fire! We'll save the king and captain!"

He provides aid to Kaisar as an adjutant of the Orleans Knights. A very caring person, he's always worrying about his subordinate Alessand.

Alessand Visponti
Voice: Kensho Ono

"Captain, why don't you implore his Highness for another opportunity!"

He is a young knight who used his noble birth to secure a place in the Orleans Knights. However that same order, having lost its fomer glory, is now the cause of his frustration.
