Maquia is part of a rare species called the Iorph, supernatural creatures that can stay isolated from the ordinary lives and struggles of human life for hundreds of years. But, while her people were surrounding, Machia had always felt alone, since she was young orphaned. She dreams of the outside world but doesn’t dare move back home because of the clan leader’s warnings. Yet one day, as the power-hungry Kingdom of Mezarte invades its homeland, the outside world discovers it.
The bulk of the giant dragons, the Renato, is already under their influence, and their king intends to add to his bloodline the immortality of the Iorphus. The people and the Renato ravage the homeland of the Iorph and slaughter most of its people. Caught in the middle of the fight, one Renato who has gone berserk takes Maquia down. She soon dies and becomes lost in a forest far from home, now very alone save for a baby’s cries from afar. In a devastated village Maquia discovers the baby and decides to grow him up as her own, calling him Ariel. And if it doesn’t know somewhere in the human world, how an infant aged much faster than it can be raised or how to survive inside with smoldering spirit, it’s determined to make it happen.
