The story takes place in a world that has been ravaged by a long and devastating war. Desir Herrman is one of the few magician warriors left alive after 10 years of fighting. Just when it seems like all hope is lost, Desir gets sent back in time to when he was a student learning magic at Hebrion Academy.
Having already lived through the future events once, Desir now has the unique opportunity to change the course of history. With his knowledge of what’s to come, he is determined to save his friends and comrades this time around. Desir returns to his school days and trains hard to hone his magical skills, working to grow stronger so he can defeat the evil that originally destroyed the world.
Along the way, he reunites with his childhood friends Romantica, Pram, and Azest. Together they work to unravel the mystery behind the coming threat to humanity while preparing for the prophesied catastrophe.
