I was thinking of doing KamiKimi next, but for some reason Maren no Rokukishi kept calling out to me lol. Angelique was one of my first otome games, so playing this feels a bit nostalgic~♪
Ever since Teresa was small, she’s always been together with Renaud. Both of her parents suddenly disappeared a long time ago, and she was taken in by Renaud’s family. They grew up like siblings, and for some reason she can sense his presence. Teresa can tell whenever Renaud is nearby. Sometimes she can even see his current location. They’re living a peaceful life together in Shiva, a small village in planet Norg, but everything changes when Teresa got kidnapped one night.
The last thing Teresa remembered was a cloaked man drugging her from behind. When she opens her eyes, she finds herself back in front of her house the next day.. with absolutely no memories about what happened last night. Renaud is really worried and tries to find out the culprit behind her abduction, but Teresa stops him from doing anything dangerous. However, some days later Renaud goes out to play and never comes back. After a month searching for Renaud around the village, Teresa suddenly senses his presence one day. She follows his presence deep into the forest, where she finds a hidden fort standing by the cliff.
The first greeting Teresa receives is from a purple-haired man who tries to kill her on the spot, accusing her as a spy. As she tries to escape from the fort, Teresa also runs into two men in the training ground. They seem friendly, but she’s scared to death and runs away from them. Right after she returns to the forest, Teresa meets a young man with a bunch of dead snakes and frogs in his hands. He asks if she wants to see, and he shoves them onto her face until she faints lol. Fortunately, Teresa later wakes up to find Renaud watching over her. She tries to drag him home, but Renaud refuses saying he’s now working for Leviath — the leader of the knights in the fort.
Back when he was small, Renaud has an older brother. He loved and respected his brother a lot, but sadly his brother drowned in the river to save him. Renaud has been feeling guilty ever since, thinking it might be better if he died instead of his brother. Leviath looks exactly like his deceased brother, and Renaud thinks Leviath is his brother’s reincarnation. From the knights, Renaud also learns that he actually has magic power, so he decided to pledge his loyalty for Leviath and use his power to help the man. Currently Leviath has seven direct subordinates, who each lead their own troops. Renaud is one of them, since recently he became the leader of the magician troops — Shisai (“死祭 / Priests of Death“). Since Renaud’s decision is firm and they’re currently surrounded by Leviath’s knights, Teresa eventually decides to join them as well. She promises to be useful by taking care of Renaud’s health and do minor jobs (e.g. cooking) in the fort, and Leviath allows her to join in.
Even though people call them “knights”, Leviath and his men are actually mercenaries who’ve been travelling around the universe for around 10 years. They’re only staying in the fort until their mission in Norg is over, so Teresa needs to work hard if she wants to come along. That night, Teresa writes a letter for Renaud’s mother saying Renaud and her are heading for the southern town — giving false information to keep the fort hidden from people’s eyes. She also tells Renaud’s mother not to worry, which also prevents the villagers from searching for them. Now that she has thrown her peaceful days away, Teresa’s life with Leviath and his knights has just begun.
