Game Synopsis:

Dara Arreal is a White Mage, a practitioner of healing magic renowned for her rare abilities. When the world of Mitalia faces a devastating pandemic, she is dispatched to the planet with her friend Derek as a final hope for the dying population. Bus as soon as they enter deep space, a powerful surge of magic rips through a nearby constellation. After recognizing a life force, they locate a shell within the energy pulse and bring it on board. Inside, they find an unconscious man at its core, barely clinging to life and in dire need of aid. As a healer, Dara is compelled to save anyone she can, but the dangerous aura she senses from the man torments her thoughts. Who is he? And why was he floating through space? While these questions haunt her conscience, Dara can't escape the premonition that her life has been changed forever.
