Will your new fate be one of tragedy or serendipity?
Mystic Destinies: Serendipity of Aeons is a Visual Novel / Otome Game created by Aeon Dream Studios for PC. The main character, default name Tsubasa Fujimoto, is a twenty year old college student who finds out that her mother is a sorceress cursed with immortality. She created the protagonist from alchemy to be a homunculus, or an artifical human, so she could pass on her curse. After a ritual to transfer her powers, she disappears and forces the protagonist to figure out her new sorceress powers on her own. After an outburst of her power, she discovers the supernatural world and has to choose one of five partners to help her get control of her new powers.
