Plot Summary: Zephyrus is a mysterious beauty, with an irresistible sexual power over men. Even if you see her face only once you will dream of her for the rest of your days. She is using this power to take a slow and complex revenge on society and all men for their past sins. Her plans for destruction go smoothly until she encounters the "primative-minded" alcoholic sailor Seki Gohonmatsu, who seems to be the one man in the world immune to her powers. As her schemes start to unravel, she begins to appear in more than one place at once working on different projects, as if there may be more than one Zephryus.
