Amid these circumstances, a one-eyed wandering ronin named Izou, who has lost his reason for living, and Raiden, an orc who hates murder and hopes to leave behind a life of theft, separately meet a young elf girl named Sonya around the same time. Together, they set off on a journey along the Tokaido Road to bring her and the wand she holds safely to the land of the northern elves. In their path stands the mysterious Inferni organization, which aims to obtain the wand and revive the Dark Lord, who intends to rule over all of creation. Inferni also uses the new Meiji government to attempt to steal the wand of Izou, Raiden, and Sonya. Traveling along the Tokaido route from Kyoto to Yokohama, Izou and Raiden begin their journey to protect the wand.
