Zheph Skyre is an inventor who is trapped in a city walled up from the rest of the world. Most people here believe that Zheph is a devil-worshipper based on his gadgets and appearance. Many believe he is a criminal. Few understand who he truly is, and one particular individual wants to use him for his own selfish intentions. There's only one person who Zheph can call a friend, and she just so happens to be a princess, though many consider her odd as well. Zheph doesn't believe in the mystical, but he is in for quite a surprise.
