In an attempt to change the fate of the vexen, Halifax, lord of the undercity Scree, seeks to ally himself with humanity's saintess, with whom he made a promise long ago. However, the plan fails, and both he and the saintess dies, and with them, the dream they shared. Only, it was not the end. To his horror, Halifax wakes up in the body of a human, now living in an entirely different world from the one he knew. Reborn as the youngest son of a minor lord, and given the name Hamelin, the former vexen overlord seeks to regain his former power and discover the truth about his second chance. On his journey, Hamelin must plunge a peaceful town into chaos, wage war to expand his underground empire, and enter the elusive realm known as the Inverse, which holds a sinister connection between his new- and old world.
