Welcome to The Clan, a dystopic male dominated society where women have no place but to breed. The Clan is still a relatively young society, founded only 50 years before after the previous inhabitants were ousted in a violent uprising. From here branched the new leaders of the society, hoping to keep the secrets of the past covered. Despite their efforts, the talk of revolution still lingers, prominent among the king's son, who wishes to shed The Clan's isolationism and strict war society. Animaul is the daughter and only child of The Clan's esteemed war general, who holds enough authority to disguise his daughter as a boy in order to train her to be a warrior. But when the king's son, Messia, conveys his message of a New Way to the Clan members, the Clan finds itself divided right down the middle. Then the king and figurehead dies, and the division is complete.
