Earth; Since its creation, Chaos has always thrived. Chaos Created From Nothing. The Water swallowed the lands, the Fire burned what the Water could not reach. The Wind sought to split them apart, only to be broken by the Lightning that punished the planet. Darkness fought against the Light and soon these chaotic forces joined together as Elementals. Their fury could have ended us all. Millenniums passed by. History says the Chaos was given shape and form; Nature and Emotion. The Chaos has become an ethereal energy force, passed down by generations long gone. Tonzou Ex Nihlio; Chaos Created From Nothing. The year is now 1600. Enter Tojiro Ankoku; A Nightshade. A transcending "Tonzou Bearer" who has lost his memory. In the wake of Japan's "Warring States" period, Tojiro awakens in the clutches of Ieyasu Tokugawa's military. Escaping their control with the help of a fearsome animal guide, Tojiro soon falls into the sights of Earth's new ruling totalitarian force, the Government of Dimensional Ruling Ministries. With technology far ahead of its time at his disposal, Grand Ruler Percival Maestro orders Tojiro's capture and execution for a global crime he committed. Enemies are made. Now allies must be found. This Cloakmaster, depicted to be Earth's greatest mistake, must discover the meaning behind his power and why he was given it. With the motto of "Those who disrespect the lives of others don't deserve their own," Tojiro begins his Saga in this simply heart pounding tale deemed an "Epic, Action-Adventure of Mythological Fantasy."
