Tagline*: Beyond the myriad of mysteries… another story emerges.
When and where were such things like “contracts”, “The Cult of Watchers”, and the “Seal” created? Where did the four Apostles come from, and where are the five Utautai sisters going? Where might it possibly lead, this new branch through time that the Utautai traitor Zero and dragon Mikhail tread upon?
