In the late 21st century, with sudden depletion of fossil fuels, the Third World War, the so called the Energy War, broke out. Countless countries had disappeared in the war that continued for years and victorious countries, also taking a considerable hit, were sticking with a war that did not seem to come to an end.
However, it was anticipated that an asteroid from space would come close to and hit the earth in a few years and nobody could eschew it. Coming up against a sphere of disaster totally different from the war, the countries ceased hostilities that had been globally engaged. They started cooperating with each other before an unprecedented calamity, neglecting the scars of the war that had persisted for years. An international organization, the “Phoenix”, was newly established, under and to which a lot of space institutions gathered and were integrated and commenced taking steps to protect the earth from collision with the asteroid. The Phoenix implanted in multiple phases and thus prepared defensive operations against the collision that the entire human race was waiting for, but finally failed just prior to completing them due to the attacks of the terrorist group, “Junk”.
With small mercies of the defensive operations, the asteroid that had been proceeding to earth, however, collided instead against the moon. Any direct damage was not brought about from its colliding with the earth, but the collision caused abnormalities in the attractive force and orbit of revolution both of the earth and moon and incurred in the worst natural disasters possible, with cosmic dust, inter alia, blanketing of the earth’s atmosphere and threatening the human race.
The human population had been halved as compared with that before the war by menaces of the universe and nature, and the forces that lacked in productivity and labor pushed ahead with veiled enmities to secure food and energy sources. With ever-intensifying conflicts among those invisible forces, the Phoenix discovered in the fragments of the asteroid the possibility for a new energy source and named the fragments the Seeds of Disaster (the “SOD” hereinafter).
The SOD are capable to generate flames that would last for hundreds of years, tremendous heat or chill energy by the reaction with the atmosphere and, on the contrary, possess deathful radiation. The forces in the world thus agreed to perform studies on and exploit them under the leadership of the Phoenix. Once the SOD showed their inexhaustible capability as a new energy source on the basis of the reaction with the earth’s atmosphere and the help of quantum computers, the forces in the world habitually traded with as well as maneuvered against the Phoenix so as to seize the initiative of the new energy regime and, in the end, the superpowers, which in invisible conflicts had held one another in check, were immersed in another war to monopolize the strength of the SOD and Phoenix.
At last, the human race lost their reason in the devastated world where nothing seemed to be improving, and started to wield the forbidden fruits, the so called nuclear weapons, without a single sense of guilt. The nuclear war, which people later called the “Dragon Tail”, struck a fatal blow to the human race who, even if it were not so, had received a deep wound by the collision of the asteroid with the moon as well as Third World War, while the already ruined world further suffered damages that might not be easily recovered.
The Dragon Tail did not seem to simply blow over. While the titular organizations named state, went insane with warfare and greed, the space fragments from the sky persistently afflicted the earth, and the contamination as well as damages resulting from the nuclear war caused by the madness of the human race, presented the ecosystem with new varieties, the mutants.
The war silently fell away leaving neither winners nor losers, and the countries which engaged in it were diagnosed with hemiplegia, entirely losing functions as a state A state of anarchy spread across the whole world and new powers which had laid their foundation in the back-to-back wars and natural calamities gradually turned themselves out.
Among the forces intending to monopolize the capability of the SOD, are the forces which want to create a new scientific civilization, and the ones who wish to gain supremacy over the whole world. Who will succeed in establishing the new world order, where everything has been devastated and anything that hasn’t, has turned into nothingness?
