Mauvienne of Alfador (nicknamed 'Mauvy' by those close to her) is a ten-year-old girl who wants to undergo knighthood training to become the first lady knight after her legendary ancestress's death. However, her father, who is the Lord of Alfador and the King of Razkav's brother (making him a prince and her a king's niece), wishes for her to grow to be a lady and live a sheltered life. Mauvy baulks and disguises herself as a boy when her father orders her to the palace and train to be a lady.
Life as a page isn't as easy as she thinks though... through her page years she meets a fellow page from Demincova who is nicknamed 'the Angelic Daemon' and a squire from Skaianjil who is nicknamed 'the Daemonic Angel', a series of state functions in which she must attend as both a lady-in-waiting and a page, having a friend die in her arms, and a whole lot of other events - all while keeping it a secret that she is actually a girl, not a boy.
