■ The Kings of the Seven Countries

As commanded by the old prophecy, the kings of the countries divided into seven nations by the ancient war built peace upon the suzerain state of Zebion over 1,000 years. Even in countries where humans rule, humans and monsters were attempting to coexist in prosperity and no one had disrupted the peace. So then why are these rulers facing war? Let’s meet the rulers of each nation that hold the keys to this story.
