More than seventy-five years ago, the Second World War abruptly ended with the advent of the Adumbrae invasion. Piercing the veil between dimensions, these malevolent beings entered our world through possessing humans, turning them into monsters of destructions. Corebrings appeared shortly thereafter, saving humanity from certain annihilation. With their powers, these superhumans remained the protectors of our world to this day.
Twenty-three-year-old Erind Hartwell, a first-year law student at a university specialized in Adumbrae law enforcement, didn't care about any of that. She couldn't muster the effort to care about anything which didn't directly affect her. Incapable of guilt or remorse, she knew she was a psychopath, even if she never used that term to refer to herself. Out of consideration for other people, which everyone should be grateful for, she resolved to have a normal life as much as possible. "I wouldn’t bother the world as long as it didn't bother me" - this is the most of important of the self-imposed Rules that governed her life.
Fate, however, had other plans. Through some misunderstanding, Erind was nearly killed. At the brink of death, an entity came offering powers to save her. Left with no other choice, she accepted it.
Follow Erind's journey as she is inevitably dragged into the battle between Adumbrae and Corebrings, with not only her powers growing but also her control over her psychopathy unraveling.
