Beautiful, yet deadly - spiritual, yet soulless. The Dark magician and vampire Deshwitat came to China to visit her creators with in the hope that they could teach Light Magic. A wandering swordsman who cannot die.
Three hundred years ago, Rett Buttler was one of Deshwitat's only friends. After the Light Sorcerer Kalutika imprisoned Deshwitat, Rett fought to avenge his friend and would have died, had not his opponent other plans. Kalutika cursed Rett with immortality so that he would live to see the Armageddon that he would bring forth. An unexpected savior Deshwitat began his journey seeking only revenge, but now he has the weight of the world on his hands. His enemy, Kalutika, is prophesized to bring about the end of the world, and Deshwitat must master Light Magic in order to stop him.
