Prologue: End of the End, Beginning of Something
Almost 500 years had passed since two brave souls sacrificed themselves and took upon them the task of guarding Death's door. The calm, sensible older male and the cheerful, strong-willed younger female...
They watched as time went by, as their friends and loved ones vanished through the passing of each day. The two took upon their shoulders the pain and agony of the world and its wish for death.
Now, their power had weakened. The power of the universe. Each and every day, the wish for Death grew strong, and their strength diminished. The world was coming to an end.
On one faithful day, Death's manifestation, a young looking male offered them a chance. A chance to change the world's fate. A chance to save it.
The older of the two seals answered in disgust. He hated the idea of saving the people. They wish for their demise, and yet, he and his sister suffered for them... He had his own limits. He wanted to abandon mankind. He wanted to leave this ungrateful generation and let them die.
But, the younger one protested. She wished to save the people. She insisted that there were innocent ones who will suffer. Innocent people who used to be like them. People who cherished their lives and continued to live. If they do not give the world hope... Then who would...? As long as there's life, there's hope. These were the words she always spoke of.
Hearing his dear sister's pleas, the male gave up and took up the offer. Looks like they will work to save mankind again... Does it matter now? They're dead anyway. Nothing to lose, and maybe, something to gain.
The scarfed male, or rather, Death's manifestation smiled. He clapped his hands and gave them his final parting words. He did not, however, tell them what they were up against, or what was this 'offer' about... All that they knew was, it will be a path to giving the world 'a new chance'...
"...And now... It begins..."
