Ark, a descendant of the High Flora race, served as a soldier in the military; fighting for what he believed to be a worthy cause, a war for peace in the chaotic world of Grandis.

Barely escaping a Spectre's usurping, he awoke years later in the barren desert wasteland of Verdel. Remembering only his name, he now struggles to find his true self and suppress the evil within.

Little did he know that it was all an elaborate scheme for Spectres to take over the world.
