In the aftermath of the War of Unification, all the nations of the continent of Eastald are forcefully united under a single ruler. During the war, special soldiers were implanted with Fairy organs, allowing them to summon powerful Fairies to fight under their command. These soldiers were dubbed "Fairy Soldiers" and used by all sides. However, nine years after the end of the war, conflict still remains as rogue Fairy Soldiers and criminals take advantage of the postwar instability. To combat this threat, the government agency "Dorothea" is formed, whose sole purpose is to combat illegal Fairy users.
One of Dorothea's newest recruits, Marlya, teams up with veteran Fairy Soldier and Dorothea operative Free in hopes of tracking down her long lost childhood friend Veronica, who is now an illegal Fairy Soldier working for an unknown organization looking to recover an artifact dubbed the "Black Fairy Tome".

|April 7, 2019|
|Years ago, the continent of Eastald was engulfed in the War of Unification, which saw the use of "Fairy Soldiers", humans capable of summoning Fairies to battle for them. During the war, the village of Suna is destroyed, separating two girls, Marlya and Veronica. The war ends with Eastald being united under the nation of Zesskia. Years later, Marlya joins the Mafia in hopes of finding Veronica and meets Free, the head of security for an auction to sell a page from the Black Fairy Tome. Suddenly, Veronica attacks the auction and steals the page, prompting Marlya and Free to pursue her. In the confusion, a fairy is accidentally set free and it merges with Marlya, causing her to have flashbacks to her life in Suna, and how Veronica vowed revenge for the village's destruction. When Marlya regains consciousness, both Veronica and Free have unleashed their Fairies to battle. In the heat of the moment, Marlya inadvertently summons her Fairy, which intervenes in the fight and gives Veronica the chance to escape. Free reveals he is actually working for a government organization called Dorothea, whose purpose is to police illegal Fairy users. As an illegal Fairy user herself now, Marlya is given the ultimatum of being arrested or joining Dorothea. Marlya agrees to join in hopes of being able to confront Veronica again. Meanwhile, Veronica turns in the stolen page to her superior, who informs her it is fake.|

|After Marlya is recruited into Dorothea, Free makes his report to Nein, the director of Dorothea, of his suspicion that Marlya has been directly possessed by a Fairy rather than having a Fairy organ transplanted into her, the normal method. Nein points out Fairy possession shouldn't be possible and decides to hide this information. Free and Marlya head out to the region of Dipre to investigate the illegal sale of artificial Fairies. There, they meet up with fellow Dorothea agents Serge and Klara. Observing the sale, Klara notices one of the men involved is a Fairy Soldier. Free takes Marlya to investigate the Fairy Soldier while Serge and Klara remain to watch the sale. Free confronts the Fairy Soldier and recognizes him as Wolfran, a comrade during the Unification War. After a brief skirmish, Wolfran escapes, but not before killing all of the traders to prevent them from revealing information about the buyer. Later, Wolfran visits a pair of graves, presumably those of his wife and child.|

|Free remarks how Fairies were practically hunted to extinction to produce Fairy Soldiers, of which only 17 are known to have survived the Unification War. It is also confirmed Wolfran's family was killed during the war. In the present, Free and Marlya are tasked by the Ministry of Fairies to visit the Fairy scholar Cain to investigate reports the Black Fairy Tome, which contains information about "Fairy possession", has been found. They head to Timoon, where they encounter Sweetie, one of Free's contacts from the Gui Carlin mafia. Together, they meet Cain and his associate Damien while another of Free's mafia contacts, Axel, looks to find a way to steal the Tome for the Arcame mafia. Axel manages to steal the Tome page, causing Free and Marlya to race against Sweetie to recover it. However, the entire chase is a ploy set up by Damien and Veronica by using the fake Black Fairy Tome page to flush out the groups seeking the real Tome. Sweetie shoots Axel, forcing him to give up the Tome but Free arrives and battles her for it, with Sweetie revealing that she is also a Fairy Soldier. Meanwhile, Axel lies in an alley dying from his wound when an unknown man approaches him.|

|Free and Sweetie fight, which ends in Free's victory after Marlya helps him and Sweetie leaves. Marlya dreams of how Suna was destroyed by an army led by Ray Dawn. She and Veronica had the ability to see fairy primitives without help. Patricia, a friend of Sweetie's and fellow Gui Carlin member, meets with her. Free and Marlya return to Cain and Damien, who are evasive as to how they got the Black Tome page and deny knowing a Veronica. Marlya doesn't believe them. Patricia and her partner Jonathan steal the Black Tome page after they leave and Marlya and Free follow them down a passageway under an abandoned Church. They are ambushed in a crypt and Patricia lures Free away before attacking with her Fairy, leaving Jonathan to capture Marlya. A potent knife-wielder, he chases Marlya back into the Church and wounds her with a poison knife that prevents her from summoning her fairy. As he is about to capture her, Veronica leaps through the Church's window and lands in front of Marlya, drawing her knife against Jonathan.|

|In the past, Veronica attempts to assassinate Ray Dawn, the man responsible for Suna's destruction, but fails when he uses his Fairy against her. In the present, Veronica attacks Jonathan, but has difficulty getting past his Fairy, having been struck a glancing blow and become tainted by the same poison that prevents her from summoning her fairy. Not wanting to leave Veronica to do all the fighting, Marlya forces her fairy to appear and it launches a fire attack at Jonathan, trapping him and allowing Marlya and Veronica to escape the church. In the catacombs, Free is able to get the upper hand on Patricia, who decides to give him the Black Fairy Tome page and flee. Jonathan follows Marlya and Veronica out of the church, where he is swiftly killed by Veronica, as she is able to summon her fairy once more. Veronica warns Marlya not to get involved with her for her own safety before leaving. Meanwhile, the Duke of Hybranz Schwarz Diese works plans to make a move against Ray Dawn with Wolfram. Marlya and Free return to HQ, where the rest of Dorothea throw a party for Marlya in celebration of her first successful mission. Veronica hums a song from Suna to herself as she stares at the night sky.|

|After the end of the Unification War, administration of the country was split between the Emperor, the Prime Minister, and five dukes. However, over the years, three of the dukes were killed for treason, with Diese and Ray Dawn being the remaining two dukes. In the present, Marlya and Free are on patrol in preparation for the tenth anniversary of the end of the Unification War and stop a new artificial Zern I fairy that malfunctions after being sabotaged by an unknown party. Dorothea then receives intelligence on the location of the real Black Fairy Tome so Marlya and Klara are sent to the city of Sinquenje to retrieve it. They follow an agent named Dice who bought the Black Fairy Tome from an auction. While tailing Dice, Klara tells Marlya how she volunteered to join Dorothea after Director Nein saved her life during the War. They are also followed by Damien. The two are able to apprehend Dice, but he does not have the Black Fairy Tome and refuses to talk. Free and Marlya then encounter Axel, who has recovered from his wound, and he informs them Dice works on the behalf of a man named Gilbert Warlock. Meanwhile, Sweetie arrives at Warlock's estate. At a formal dinner, Diese smiles at the news of the artificial fairy malfunction.|
