Living on a continent devastated by centuries of catastrophes; Bois, Tieh, and Lakshi are travelers heading towards Haelle Kine, where they hope to find water. After encountering a group of people who were recently murdered (quite gruesomely) and a survivor who dies due to fatigue and starvation (in addition to the two arrows in her stomach), they find themselves in the cursed Azec Sistra, a city built for the dead. Legends says that no one has ever left this city alive...



  • Dude Looks Like a Lady: The bandits mistake Tieh for a her, and their leader even states he is "A Helen of Troy."
  • Groin Attack: Lakshi manages to catch an attacking bandit in mid-air with a boot to the family jewels. Her unlucky victim hangs in the air for a fraction of a second before collapsing down the stairs, even landing headfirst on the step without actually reacting to it.
  • Important Haircut: Lakshi cuts off her long hair when she takes on the persona of a man.
