Though the world is a safer place following the Demon King’s defeat,
there is still no end in sight to the havoc caused by various lesser fiends.
To subdue them, the Order of the Knights is formed at the royal capital.
This is the tale of one such paladin–a young heroine named Cynthia.
Born in the capital, Cynthia grew up admiring her late father,
a great knight and swordsman who defended queen and country.
Now she, too, hopes to follow in his steps as a protector of the people!
As soon as she is old enough, she enters the knight trials with gusto…
But for her ultimate trial, she must venture deep into the forest,
then bring back a broken branch from the Sacred Tree as proof.
Having often played there as a young child with her father,
Cynthia thinks nothing of the task expected of her, until…
She discovers a strange cave there that she doesn’t remember at all!
What’s more, a girl appears before her, claiming to be a Mana Spirit.
The stranger informs her that she has summoned Cynthia there
to warn her of recent enemy gatherings and ask for her help.
Apparently, Cynthia’s altruism is just what the world needs!
When Cynthia agrees to investigate the matter,
the Mana Spirit even offers to grant her special power…
