Raien and her brothers are the shadow-knights, living on the edge of the dangerous Phantome forest and work out of gratitude to the King. One day, Raien returns half-drained from the castle and discovers her home ransacked and her brothers gone. Raien knows perfectly that they wouldn't have gone into the forest of their own free will because of the bandit uprising and sets off to find them along with the help of the Princes Laquen and Valentin, and her sword, Remembrant. But what happens when Raien herself dissapears and the only clue to where she is came from a boy, Lucifer, bearing the red elf crest?
