Story[edit | edit source]

In 1783, the Alchemy Guild feared the rise of the Industrial Revolution and their declining influence. They created Shardbinders, humans transplanted with crystals of demonic power, and sacrificed them in order to summon demons. They unleashed a horde of demons throughout Europe, attacking city after city. The Church fought back and won, but many lives were lost. Only two Shardbinders survived. Gebel survived the ritual and Miriam fell into slumber, sparing her from the ritual. Ten years later, the demons have returned and Miriam has woken up. Upon learning that Gebel is responsible, Miriam and the Alchemist Johannes have set out to his castle to stop him.
