Kaze Yamazaki is on a mission for revenge. The latest master of a rural sword school, Kaze finds his clansmen murdered and vows to find the men responsible. Blindly rushing into a city built of his dreams and nightmares, Kaze searches the capital city of Vivoura for the killers that made him the last of his clan and finds himself thrust into a power struggle for the continent itself. Followed by a motley crew of thieves and artists, Kaze is recruited by the ruthless Kazzanoff Syndicate. While piecing together the clues of his clan’s murder, he must survive a constant barrage of mutants and militants pledging allegiance to the mysterious Dog King, Lykos Streuhund. If he can not overcome the monstrosities of the Capital, his clan will die with him.
