2 Works in Scarlet Blade (Video Game)
Two arkana — one sworn to help rebuild humanity as a Royal Guard and the other sworn to opt for peaceful coexistence of both humanity and arkanas in a postapocalyptic world — Valeree the promising Whipper of the Royal Guards and Dewe the zestful Shadow Walker of the Free Knights meet. They have nothing in common at first. One side tries to hone their lifespan as pure fighters while the other side thinks there can be more to life but both Valeree and Dewe start respecting each other. However, Valeree tries to become cold and unfeeling due to the pressures of killing and Dewe becomes angry at all the human and arkana arrogance around her. What if they both wanted to quit? Will Dewe confess her growing affections for her Commander Satev? Will Valeree ever find out the twisted secrets of her Commander Erois? And what about Arkhan the leader of the Chaser faction Blade Fever?
Both these powerful warriors will fight for what they want, the might become free in a world where there is no place for renegades.
A Chaser named Flint died to save his recruit Romancier leaving him embittered by the "human experience" and decides to become a Hermit but Lota cannot accept his decision so she sends Seraph, a Shadow Walker to assassinate him, and another Chaser to help along. But when Seraph sees the brutal rape of Romancier by her Chaser ally she is left speechless at her Mother's cruelty and does not know how to tackle the situation. A Whipper named Melodes has gotten her Free Knights comrade Cherry out of prison but they have to meet a contact at Viledon and Cherry's whining, drug induced and battered behaviour makes hard for the proud Melodes to care for her comrade making her question the whole concept of caring. While Seraph questions the war, Melodes questions her humanity but Romancier questions humanity itself...but the Vespine queens are finally becoming more "human" in appearance...
