The land of Azure is facing the rebellious Barbosa and his relentless hordes in the north, while reports of unsettling raids and attacks in the south continue to upset the people. Isaac and Leora,
young pupils in the small village of Oscri, set out as part of a larger mission in hopes of discovering more than their quiet, uneventful lives have to offer. Polyann, a former rebel, has joined
Azure and is working alongside her childhood friend, Ren, in an attempt to free their home from oppression and war. Meanwhile, a dark, malevolent truth that has been shrouded from the light is
beginning to be revived once more and threatens to engulf the world. All that remains to stop this truth is the inheritance that this world and its people will receive. A legacy passed down through
the ages.
