In 1942, the Vatican established a secret militia called "The Assassins." This is a codename to protect the true nature of the group. All the members are "Blessed Children", chosen by saints to get special powers through "resonating". Only these individuals can fight demons that try to materialize in the human world. The downside is that demons seek to eat Blessed Children to gain incredible power.

Viola di Largolinio, Fife O'Reilly, and Xylophone Phobus are still in training under Sister Rain, the head of the Assassins. Viola is anxious for better missions to prove herself. Everything is going along as normal until Flute Vermicelli, another Assassin, goes missing and sets off a chain of events that results in a dangerous new enemy, the likes of which the Assassins have never seen before.

* {{Benched Hero}}: Both Mandolin and Tzouras as of Chapter 5, though in Tzouras's case it's because he can't resonate yet.

* {{Christmas Episode}}: Every December, the main story takes a break to do a special "Advent Calendar" story, interestingly told a panel a day. To keep in line with the Catholic theme, it starts on the first day of Advent (not just the 1st of December) and runs till Christmas Eve. They are usually cute, Christmas themed shorts.
**2013's Calendar was about Viola chasing a demon around St. Peter's Basilica, and featured interesting trivia about the author's trip to Rome
**2014's Calendar is about Fife getting a football/soccer ball as a gift and the kids playing a match together.



* {{Redshirt Army}}: The Vatican Medics usually appear as background characters and provide medical support to the Assassins
**[[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] in a preview image for Chapter 7 where Sister Rain asks a medic who he is, and he responds with "I'm an extra from Chapter 2. Only now I have a face!"
