The plot focuses on Killian, a recent graduate of the Green Hills Academy. While most graduates would do anything to graduate second in their class, Killian considers the feat a failure. Despite his disappointment, Killian is able to parlay the honor into a position with Excelsior Force, a renowned peace-keeping force. While on his way to the Force's headquarters, Killain "rescues" Spinel, a young elf who rewards Killain's help by stealing his coin purse. Little do the two know that their chance encounter would lead them into a much larger quest.
