We are people whose fates are determined by the "Tome of Destiny," which dictates what roles we shall play from birth until death.
Each person is given a tome when they are born. It is our fate to act out the script—the "Tome of Destiny"—for our entire lives. However, a boy named Ex was born with the "Blank Tome," an empty slate. He meets others born with "Blank Tomes"—Reina, Tao, and Shane—and together, they embark on a journey to find their own purpose. This is a fairy tale, told a countless number of times.
Voice: Ryota Osaka
A boy living in the Fantasy World who holds the "Blank Tome." He was raised without any particular destiny to speak of, but embarks on a journey to create his own destiny after meeting Reina and the others. He can conjure up the "Wild Card" that is able to connect the souls of all heroes.
Voice: Reina Ueda
A girl called the "Tuning Maiden." She is able to "tune" the Chaos teller, and has the power to return the Fantasy World to its former glory. She has a special power called "Miniature Garden Kingdom," and her past is a mystery.
Voice: Takuya Eguchi
A big-hearted and free-spirited young man who calls Reina "milady," he accompanies her on her journey to "tune" the Chaos teller. He has made a pact of siblings with Shane, and he calls the team the "Tao Family."
Voice: Miyu Kubota
A girl who is like a little sister to Tao. It's hard to know what she's thinking and she's very laid-back, but she supports the team on their journey after her sharp senses allow her to realize the truth. She's a heavy weapon/weapon customization fanatic, and has a variety of skills at her disposal.
