A powerful bright light from a wand ends the long Edo period between the fall of the shogunate and the rise of the Meiji era to avoid further bloodshed.
Izou, a one-eyed wandering ronin who has lost his reason to live, and Raiden, an orc who detests murder and hopes to leave thievery, meet Sonya around the same time. Together, they travel the Tokaido to deliver her and her wand to the elves in the north.
Inferni, which wants to revive the Dark Lord and rule all of creation, stands in their way. Inferni uses the new Meiji government to steal Izou, Raiden, and Sonya's wand. Izou and Raiden travel the Tokaido from Kyoto to Yokohama to protect the wand.
