While studying as a sorcerer at the most prestigious institute for magic in the land, an arcane accident sees Orphen's oldest friend, Azalie, transformed into a horrifying monster. When the sorcerers' academy decides to cover up the accident instead of trying to fight the curse, Orphen takes matters into his own hands. He forsakes his position and even his own name, departing on a wanderer's quest to gather the knowledge and artifacts necessary to make Azalie human again. Adventure and danger await in this brand-new adaptation of the fan-favorite Orphen franchise!
