Humans and Mancers have lived peacefully together ever since the second world war. However, one thing hasn't changed. Pyros are still deemed the most dangerous of them all. Having a tradition of rampaging during a surge in power every one hundred years, they were rejected by society, until the beginning of the 21st century when the mainstream media decided to finally accept Pyromancers, but at that point they were already endangered, and the government decided to just finish them off to make sure another ramage doesn't occur. Facing extinction, Maxwell "Max" Mercedes, the last remaining Pyro, has to survive against the anti-pyro government in order to save his kind, but he won't be able to do it without the help of his friends.
