The world of Gaia has enjoyed relative peace and prosperity for two hundred years when unexplained occurrences started taking place within its lands. From the destruction of villages to sightings of an unknown knight in graveyards after dark, the ominous tidings have increased in both boldness and regularity. Within the kingdom of Aquiocia, princess Alicea struggles with the grief of losing her parents to the Battle of a Thousand Blades, hiding away from her people and the world all the while refusing the throne as kingdom and world alike are thrown into chaos. Otherworldly stones with unreal power have long since been sought after by the factions of the world and the struggle to obtain the strange stones that allow the chosen Vassal to wield one of the primary elements of Water, Fire, Wind, Earth, Light and Dark intensifies. Before long the young princess is confronted by an unlikely messenger, sent directly to her bearing one of the stones. Now Alicea must find the strength to seek out the other stones, the Vassals and the source of the ongoing destruction all the while struggling with her own calling, the loss of her parents and the responsibilities of a queen before finally seeking out an enemy thought defeated centuries ago. The Vassals of the elements are being chosen, each with a story to tell and a reason to fight. These are the chronicles of those chosen to wield the elements and shape the future of the world itself. This is their awakening.
