Prince Mars, heir to the throne of Aritia, has fled his homeland and the invaders bent on conquering the entire continent. Together with the Aritian Knights he hides and bides his time in the friendly island kingdom of Talus. Though criticized for constantly daydreaming or being in a bad mood, he has found a friend in Sheida, the princess of Talus. Together they indulge in hayrides and shopping trips, or just standing upon the parapet and looking out over the land. However, despite how pleasant life is, he cannot forget the circumstances that separated him from his land and forced his beloved sister to sacrifice herself for him.
Prince Mars doesn’t act like a typical heir of Aritia; he spends his time with the like-minded Princess Sheida of Talus, wasting away the days on childish pursuits. However, the young prince can never forget the sacrifice made for him by his beloved sister and a flame still burns in his heart for the homeland he has since been exiled from. Rallying his people, Mars steps forward to liberate the spirit of Akanea, the only one who can once again bring freedom to the nation. Unfortunately, this means taking on the might of the Durhua Empire and all that stands between the two lands...
