In ancient times, powerful angels held strong against the demonic creatures crawling out of the abyss on the Island of EOS. One day, though, they were tricked: The angelic guardians were turned into stone and demons flood the world ever since.
Eons later, a captain named Kareem found a petrified angel on a remote rock off the shores of an island. Kareem managed to awake the angel Leanas, who told him about the island of EOS and gifted him with immortality. In return, Kareem swore an oath: To awake Leanas’ brothers and sisters, who were still petrified on EOS. Together they would fight back the demons, forcing them to return to the abyss they came from and freeing the world of their dark powers once again.
