Majutsushi Orphen Mubouhen
Krylancelo Finrandi once attended the most prestigious school of sorcery on Kiesalhima continent, the Tower of Fang. He was sent there as a young child from an orphanage, along with another orphan girl called Azalie. Throughout the years, the two were very close, with Azalie becoming more and more powerful and Krylancelo looking up to her as a sister/mother figure and a best friend. It isn’t until one day, Azalie’s thirst for knowledge and extracurricular experimentation backfire, and she is horribly transfigured into a hideous creature, a dragon-like beast that departs the Tower in an animal fury, leaving Krylancelo behind. The Fang Tower, however, is unsympathetic. They promote the belief that Azalie is dead in order to cover the grievous error that resulted in her unimaginable transformation, a terrible scandal that would surely destroy the school’s reputation and authority. People whom Krylancelo thought were his friends suddenly seem as though they are strangers, even enemies, going along with the Tower’s pretense rather than challenge their authority. Furious that they will do nothing to help her and are instead determined track down the Bloody August and destroy it before the truth can come to light, Krylancelo renounces his former self, declaring Krylancelo to be dead and that he is, instead, Orphen.
