Devoted nobleman Karl White serves the Faith of Kallikratés through his role as the Commander of the Holy Blades. A loyal soldier of the gods, he protects their flock within the land of Ardana, no matter how questionable his actions are.
One day, the Holy Blades’ investigation into the infamous Blackthorn Guild takes an unexpected turn. A vigilante has taken arms against the fearsome brigands, capturing the hearts of many people and undermining the Holy Blades’ purpose. Determined to learn about the so-called hero, Commander White comes face-to-face with his dark past, steeped in a myriad of secrets.
Mara had some misfortunes in life. However, she never expected to be afflicted with a curse, where every death brings her back as an undead creature. Entering a world she has no memory of, Mara will be pulled along on a series of events to face the unavoidable and encounter monsters she never knew existed. While searching for her lost memories and a way to lift her curse, Mara learns about an omen of the world’s end. A prophecy looms over the land of Ardana, foretelling the return of a great and terrible beast. And one by one, the seven seals that kept the Dark One imprisoned shall fail.
After learning the circumstances behind her curse, Mara’s journey takes a drastic turn. Now she seeks revenge against those responsible, putting her at odds with Commander White of the Holy Blades. For breaking most of the seven seals, Mara has now become the Cursed Herald. But in her darkest moments, she will find strength from family and friends alike.
On this quest for truth and revenge, Mara shall know her purpose in a grand conspiracy, including the truth behind the Faith of Kallikratés' prophecy.
The land of Ardana avoids destruction, thanks to the heroic efforts of Mara Ashwood and her friends. For the first time in thousands of years, her home is now free from the tyranny of a false goddess. A referendum has been cast, sealing the Faith of Kallikratés’ fate. As a new year dawns, the last undying continues her search on lifting her curse. Her hope now lies in Ardana’s alliance with Thoron, which has faced over a millennium of isolation.
However, Kallikratés refuses to go down without a fight. Many followers remain, seeking to make life difficult for the huntress while clinging onto whatever power they have left. An unlikely foe has risen to challenge Mara with the potential to revitalize the crumbling theocratic order. But she will not face this new threat alone. Friends, both old and new, shall help the last undying as her actions draw the attention of whole nations.
There is no greater fear than the fear of nothingness.
After five years of living in the mystical land of Thoron, Mara’s quest is about to take another turn. Near a wary village, the huntress finds herself in a great dilemma when it comes to removing the Curse of the Undying. And to make matters worse, a new adversary dares to stand between Mara and the Blue Rose of Immortality, which is the source of the ancient curse. Old fears return as well as the warning given in the past. Once all fragments of the soul of Thalia unite, so shall the return of the original immortal woman.
