The show will take place in a world where fairies reside within animals, which they grant magnificent abilities. Humans learned that they can harnass the fairies, abilities by surgically implanting the organs of fairy hosts into their own bodies. By doing this, they gain the ability to summon fairies to a limited degree, which they can use as weapons.
Over time, these gifted individuals began to be raised to wage war, and earned the name “Fairy Soldiers.” A great war erupted, which saw the Fairy Soldiers take the front lines. In the aftermath, though, they were left without purpose, and sought to rejoin society. Some sided with the government. Others, the mafia, or even became terrorists. Whatever the case, though, every Fairy Soldier found their own path to tread upon.
Nine years after the war, Maria is brought on as the newest recruit of “Dorothea,” an organization devoted to investigating and suppressing fairy-related incidents. The government remains unstable even today, and great criminals nurse old wounds from the war. No matter the case, though, Maria follows the stories of the Fairy Soldiers, who seek to carve their own sense of justice into this tumultuous world.
