What is the plot of Synduality?

More than a hundred years ago, a major disaster befell the Earth when a mysterious poisonous rain started to fall from the heavens and killed off most of humanity. This phenomenon became known as the “Tears of the New Moon”.

Our story begins, more than a hundred years later, and humanity is striving to survive in the wake of the disaster. The only humans, who managed to survive, are mages, and they live in settlements known as “Nests” that are scattered across the ravaged world. These humanoid mages are equipped with double-thinking (self-aware) artificial intelligence.

In the year 2242 AD, a female wizard, who was placed into a cryogenic sleep, awakens with no memories. Her name is Noir. Although Noir is a bit of a scatterbrain and even has trouble dressing she is able to pilot a mecha known as a Cradle Coffin and participate in combat.

Character designs by Neco have been unveiled for Noir, Ciel, and Schnee.
