It wasn't too long ago, if you think about it. When the world fell, mankind, no... life itself, was wiped out. The year was 2309. The world was dying; polluted to its very core. Nearly every resource had been used and lost in the end. Now the moon and sun were really the only options left of resources. But amongst all that, evil dwelt inside the hearts of men, and radiated a sort of misty energy from the planet. Aside from the small "accidents", everything seemed normal. Only a small group of people knew this was false security for the humans, and the Earth itself. Many people turned away from God, blaspheming basically every chance they got, without really knowing it. Sensing the danger that threatened the planet, the leader of these holy people, an old priest, brought some ancient scripts to the government. These documents, some centuries old, foretold a "force of God's divine will" would come when Earth was ensnared by evil, which would eventually happen. And that time had come. Pleading that they either evacuated Earth, or, cleanse the world of as much darkness as they could. Shrugging this off, they merely ignored each man that came to their door, ranting about some 'Apocalypse' that was soon to come if they did not take action. And happen... it did. A giant scaled beast of some sort engulfed the planet 10 years later, and completely obliterated it. The world, and the moon (with it being stuck in Earth's gravitational pull), fell, as did a few stars with it. Centuries past until the planet crashed into the 'bottom' of the universe. It slowly healed to become several flat surfaces, a new set of continents. Life, in time, began again, and when humans arrived, they were different. The land under the world was enchanted, and thus endowed both the earth, the animals, and the humans with supernatural abilities. But not all of these were good. Back into the 'middle ages', where horses were the main transportation, and swords were the basic weapons of battle, a cult that knew everything about this "monster" planned to reawaken "God's vengeance". Their enemy, the holy men and women, said God only did what needed, and probably had no intention of doing it again. But when the occult finds a mysterious girl who can foretell the future and knows how to awaken the creature of "God's vengeance". Prophesied, five young people, from the five continents; Moon Kingdom, Sun Kingdom, Star Kingdom, Cloud Kingdom, and the Storm Kingdom, representing the five elements - water, fire, earth, air and electricity, would come, and perhaps, save the New Earth from the beast called, in ancient texts... Leviathan.
It has recently been discovered that the ancient texts, one piece of it residing in each city, has been rumored to have the secret to glory. These pieces of papyrus are the key to controlling the Leviathan, or destroying it. The goal of both groups is to get these pieces from the other cities, bring them together, and, depending on which side gets it, either dominate the beast or destroy it. Meanwhile, the lives of people in most of the cities is in turmoil. Very few are rich, and all "Lower Cities" are in chaos. The Upper Cities mostly remain tranquil, but even then, robberies and murders have been occurring. The Cult and the Holy People have been at secret war with each other since the New Earth was created, and even before that. Prince Tsugaru has been moving his men towards several cities from his base behind the Sun Kingdom, the most violent and militarily formed city. The five heroes of the prophecy are scattered around the New Earth, and their soon-to-be companions, both animal, and manlike, await their destiny.
