However, civil war and uprisings have torn the British Isles in two, with London itself divided into East and West by a wall between the Kingdom and the new Commonwealth. A cell of Commonwealth spies, each with their own set of skills, infiltrates the Kingdom to gather intelligence, extract defectors, and conduct sabotage. One of these spies, Chise, has a hidden history with Angie, the princess of the Kingdom herself.
