-- Suddenly, mutations appeared in the human genetic code. While the change wasn't immediately visible, some began to show traits similar to beasts. This turned them into a species different from humanity, and marked the birth of the half-breed (half man, half beast).
-- Although mankind had the advantage in sheer numbers, it was inferior to the half breed because of their resilience and overwhelming regenerative powers.
-- At last, after a few centuries passed, humanity is presented with a chance to retaliate. Brave men and women vowed to devote their life to the war against the half-breed and became knights. Those knights were named "The Order."
-- If a knight is killed, a new successor to his name appears, and throws himself into battle on behalf of Humanity.
-- In the London of 19th Century, the conflict between mankind and the half-breed continued, even in the terrible district of Whitechapel, one of the many districts that will be remembered by posterity. This area has become a major turning point in the battle over the years.
--The development of science and the industrial revolution has become a mighty assets for the human race.
-- In this time, when the threat of the half-breed begins to decline, a new threat attacks the knights: A full-scale insurrection in the British Empire. Suffering the poverty brought by the industrial revolution and the disparity between classes, angry citizens take arms and rebel.
