A young and excellent tactician, tasked with captaining the expedition team. Her name strikes fear in the heart of enemy nations. She is calm and collected, but cares deeply for her subordinates. Burdened by the bleak world that has turned into a desert, and with mankind’s role in its history, she fights to hold onto the will to live. Saving the world, keeping her friends alive, and accomplishing her mission. For now, she clings onto these reasons.
A tech researcher who boasts the greatest knowledge within the expedition team. She possesses a mysterious power, the fruit of her tireless research. She speaks in a calm, soft manner. She is not one to mince words, but there is a mischievous side to her. She takes part in research at the military laboratory, and she has access to technology which can restore data files within old machines.
She easily wields a giant shield, and has taken on the role of intercepting enemy attacks for her allies. Because of her small stature, stubborn personality, and dislike of carrots, she is self-conscious about not being taken seriously with her childlike appearance. On the other hand, she holds a deep trust for Quinn, who speaks to her without such prejudice.
Enter the desert in search of the key to save humanity – the Great Power. One year, the king declared that he would send a large-scale investigation team to the Desert of Beginnings.
Chosen to captain this mission, Quinn Bravesford leads her soldiers into battle against a swath of enemy nations for the sake of her kingdom. Quinn gazes at the ancient alchemic device, the Lunagear, within her hand. According to the legends of yore, once the Lunagear is equipped with the four Orbs, it will unlock the Great Power that will save humanity. Only one Orb resides in Quinn’s Lunagear. Collecting the four Orbs for the Lunagear, however, is a mere legend.
With the threat of dangerous creatures and Machine Dolls wandering the desert, one of the enemy nations, the Principality of Neuhaven, has dispatched their military in search of the Great Power. Now, Quinn and her band of allies must fight against the Principality of Neuhaven in hopes to find the Great Power and save humanity. Quinn steels herself, but even so, she can’t help but doubt the existence of the Great Power…
