Elves are smart, long-lived, and attuned to the wind. Wips have the power to manipulate flame, while Segitts have incredible muscular strength.

Somehow, still, humans have learned to survive. In the racially-diverse technopolis of the Seventh Republic, they even dominate. Out of all the strange and terrible corners of the world, in this one, at least, humans can feel safe. Here, there's strength in numbers.

One human, though? Pitifully outclassed against a single member of almost any other race; it'd never be a fair fight—unless that human was a Keeper or carrying some serious Class A police tech. But tech can be stolen, and far from all Keepers are on the side of justice. So how's a nation supposed to keep the peace?

Strict border checks. Pervasive, draconian surveillance, with camera eyes and a computerized spine running signals to the heart of the NPA, the National Police Agency. And the physical hands of this digital dragon? The police themselves. Sometimes the hands of justice grip too tight.

Among the police, one division dares to stand against the current. One division dares to disobey orders, break regulations, refuse to work overtime, and generally make themselves useless to everyone, especially their bosses—but with some exceptions for people in need.

The 13th Division of the NPA. The Sideliners.

CLARIS ZEINBURG is the 13 th Division's new rookie—and new partner to Ruka Hiryu, the number-one troublemaker in the whole NPA. She clocks in punctually and clocks out even more so, and she and Ruka are like oil and water. Will she adapt to his unconventional style, or will the 13 th Division get its act together? (Spoiler alert: It won't.)

KOMACHI SHINOMIYA is always on her way to a mixer. She knows everybody, and everybody knows her: she's a fearsome force on the rumor mill. Really she's just looking for the right guy; he could be found anywhere, although certainly not in the hard-drinking, hard-living, hard-slacking Ruka Hiryu.

MELL is a bit of a mystery. When she gets tangled up in a nasty case, Ruka saves her, for once playing a genuine hero—but exactly who's chasing her, and why? That she deserves protection is hardly in question, but how much will her safety cost the city's other citizens? And will her brave, aging knight be enough to defend her?

Friendly local segitt CHIFFON MACDOUGALL moves in next to our protagonist, Ruka, one ordinary day. She's honest, hardworking, and kind to a fault—almost too good a person, in fact. There's been a spate of sword-based killings of late, and Chiffon is also an excellent swordswoman.
