Myshkinnote is a very mysterious city filled with many Fairy Tale heroes and unusual miracles, but the ordinary residents of the city are unsuspecting of its true nature. Three young girls who also appear to be ordinary, but are actually young sorceresses; Valery, Mary, and Snowy move to Myshkin where they meet Helena, a local city girl. The girls soon befriend her and form a superhero team called the Fantasy Patrol. Their task is to observe the odd behavior of any fairy tale characters that roam the city and help them with their problems, while also protecting the ordinary side of the city from any harm, maintaining a balance between both worlds.
