Chaos was the creator of all and ruler of nothing. Over the next several millennium, it watched its descendants enjoy life's luxuries while it dwelled within the heart of oblivion. Its envy and rage grew, leading it to seek solace in the heart of the ruler of the in-between realm, Erebus. It hoped to make the other deities and the mortals pay for forcing it to live a life of obscurity.

When Erebus and the Goddess of the Stars, Asteria, meet, they end up falling in love, which leads to the creation of the thirteen strongest constellations in the world, the Zodiac. Their love sealed the mortals' fate, for each Zodiac embodied an important mortal value. The Dark Lord's thirst for power has overtaken Erebus' body and corrupted the Zodiac, thrusting the mortal world into a colorless dystopia.

"Engulfed by Aries" focuses on teenage blacksmith apprentice, Hestia Castellanos, as she struggles with her duty to corrupt Aries and her looming father, and her unrecognizable feelings for comrade, Alastair Romanos. Can she regain the courage to stand up to Aries and free her people? Or will she give up everything, including her one chance of happiness with Alastair?
