Ages ago a group of demons threatened the whole world, only to be saved by a man known as the Legendary Hero. He was the wielder of a new power known as Alpha Stigma.
Ryner Lute is a lazy student of the Roland Empire Royal Magician’s Academy. One day, the Roland Empire goes to war against their neighboring country Estabul, and Ryner loses his classmates in the war.
After the war, Ryner sets out on a journey to search the relics of a “Legendary Hero” at King Sion Astal’s command and finds out that a deadly curse is spreading throughout the continent.
Ryner is a wielder of this Alpha Stigma, who’s on a quest from his home country of Roland for artifacts of the Legendary Heroes. He’s accompanied by Ferris, a girl who knows how to handle a sword.
They’re secretly being followed by a talkative, troublesome girl, Captain Milk Callaud. Turns out she’s after them because they’re “fugitives and users of illegal magic!”
Meanwhile, back in their own nation their king, Sion Astal, strives to unite the world. While everyone seems to love him Ferris refutes his depiction as a hero, but as a demon and usurper instead.
Ryner Lute is naturally talented in magic, hand-to-hand combat, arts of assassination, ancient lore, languages and symbols, and the bearer of Alpha Stigma, an ocular ability which grants him the ability to analyze various forms of magic. Because of this ability, in a world where magic forms differs from country to country and is a closely guarded secret, he has learned and acquired magic originating from different countries through battles with their mages.
Ferris Eris who comes from a famous Swords-Clan designated to serve as guards to the King of Roland.

Sion Astal is son of the previous king and a lowly commoner, now, he is the current king of Roland. While enrolled at the Roland Royal Special Military Academy, he got acquainted with Ryner. He vowed at a young age to become king so he can fix this corrupted world. Sion is well loved by his people and his servants, and considers Ryner to be his best friend. However, within his own court, he has to deal with numerous antagonistic plots.
