People are segregated into two classes in the empire of Galgandia. The Titanians are the noblemen while the Leonicas are born to be exploited. Sick of their fate, a group of Leonicans rise up to resist the rule of the Titanians.

During a skirmish, Julio met Alissa. Together, the two joined the resistance to fight for their beliefs. However, the Titanian army was too much for the Leonicans, watching his comrades being massacred, Julio was prepared to die.

And just that moment, the Gungnir, the spear of the god of war appeared, with that in hand, Julio wiped out his enemy. With the god of war on his side, Julio is next to impossible to beat, but his relationship with Alissa is complicated all the more.
