In this bleak setting, Nikaido comes across a man named Caiman with a lizard’s head and no memory of his past. Their mission is to find and assassinate Sorcerers in “the Hole,” in hopes of killing the one responsible for Caiman’s curse. However, when En, the chief Sorcerer, receives news of a lizard-man killing his people, he commands a team of “cleaners” to penetrate the Hole, sparking a battle between two different realms.
