Ultimately, Sophitia had to protect the malevolent sword when her daughter was taken hostage. As the battle ended, she was drawn into the space-time rift and brought to the Orochi dimension.
Sterkenburg Cranach is a former knight of the Kingdom of Arland. On his journey back to Arland after escorting Princess Meruru back to Arls, Sterkenburgalso found himself caught in the space-time rift and transported to the unknown world.
Nezha isa young officer from the Mystic Realm and although highly skillful, he continues to advance himself, seeking the most difficult battles while freely wielding his Fire Spear with expertise.
Yinglong is an officer from the Mystic Realm’s ancient past, he fought admirably alongside Fu Xi and the other mystics against the demon hordes. While highly esteemed by his peers, Yinglong follows his convictions, resulting in inflexible actions.
