An Album Accompaniment
Prelude: Exordium -
Our story begins in Krung Thep, A city of winged beings. The peaceful city is attacked by a fallen Thepen, named Amatera. Amatera had been led to believe his attack was warranted and necessary for his people's survival. The charge that was made became out of control and as a result Amatera fled to Saishutani, a desolate valley, in order to begin a new life. During the attack, the city is filled with a plague of fire; any who are touched by the flame are lost... including Tsukuyo‘s mother, Tennin. She is touched by the flames and in her dying words she said to him “Put your hands over my ears darling. I can hear the beating with my eyes. I see through yours and need this time. Scream through your wings, moon light. Put your hands over my eyes darling. I can see the burning with my lungs. Strike a fire this is your time. Scream through your wings, moon light”. Tsukuyo is the remaining survivor, his wings are damaged, his home destroyed, and he's left for dead in a stream. He wakes up in Songkran, a city underneath the water, where he must now learn how to use his wings again.

I'll be your gravity.
