Warner Music describes Shadow of Laffandor as:
Once upon time, there was a war between Lights and Shadows.
How their hatred to each other change the face of the world that consisted of those two…?
The war went on without any concern for the world afterward, and finally, it ended with the victory of the Lights.
But at the same time it caused the birth of the darkness, which never had existed before.
The Lights could never even touch the Shadows which took refuge in darkness.
The world ruled by the King of the Lights was so bright and so liveful.
However to be afraid of darkness and to be scared of the Shadows had been his unavoidable fate.
