Kross, a Badass Normal, is declared a heretic along with the rest of his clan, and sentenced to death.
Rain, a dragon/Celestial hybrid, witnesses his father kill his mother, and vows revenge.
How are their fates connected? Who is behind this conspiracy?
Kross and Rain provides examples of the following tropes:
- Badass Boast: Kross has an epic one in the first chapter.
- Badass Normal: Unlike Rain, Kross is fully human. He's just really good with a sword.
- BFS: Kross' weapon of choice.
- Big Damn Heroes: Rain's epic save of Kross and Junko.
- Dark Is Not Evil: Kross wears black and red clothes and armor, yet is an Anti-Hero.
- Deadpan Snarker: Kross.
- The Empire: The Akolite Empire is implied to be this.
- Hot-Blooded: 13 year old Kross comes off as this.
- Knife Nut: Daggers, but Rain loves them.
- Nonhuman Humanoid Hybrid: Rain is half Celestial, half dragon.
- Reverse Grip; Rain's default fighting style.
- Red Baron: Kross is the "Black Blade" and Rain is the "Reverse Grip Rouge"
- Self-Made Orphan: This is what Rain hope's to accomplish.
- The Stoic: Kross, in the main storyline. When asked if putting some emotion in his voice would kill him, he replies "Maybe."
