Reon, the closest star system to Solar. Every thousand years, the system's fate is determined by one of the two Essence Forces of Light and Darkness obtaining the power of a nigh-sentient comet. This time, Darkness will not play fair. Someone—or something—is gathering the many evil creatures called Noctifers with the intentions to use them and wipeout the very essence of Light itself.
Alongside his comrades and his ward Briél, the Hilikzian knight Bastar intends to find aid in the form of a wary alliance between Light and another, far more ancient force against Darkness.
Bastar is a secretive man with a hard-fought past he wishes to distance himself from. He loves his ward, and he loves his best friend, Nevan. But only one of them knows the truth of his existence: He, too, is a Noctifer, a physical incarnate of Darkness given life and form.
Darkness will fail. He knows this. What even he wonders is whether he will be willing to perish with it when the time comes.
