They are legends and myths come to life as they are neither animal nor human yet embrace the attributes of both sets.

But there are some places that have never been so into such things such as the all girls school where Tsumiko Hajime grew up. Tsumiko gets a letter from an aunt she never knew she had who informs her that she is leaving her an ancestral fortune and estate. But she needs to accept the inheritance in addition with an inhuman butler. Named Argent, he has been with the Hajime family for hundreds of years and to prevent his death Tsumiko needs to renew the generational bond. The butler hates her for the power she has over him but her soul is what he craves more than anything including freedom.
“Forthright’s Kimiko and the Accidental Proposal” is the story of middle child Kimiko who is from a house of reavers that had fallen into obscurity over the years. But her youngest sister has managed to get Kimiko into an elite school where Amaranthine, humans and reavers intermingle and hope to be future leaders. While she cannot count herself among the brightest of the class, her exceptional understanding of the subtle body language of the Amaranthine and her unusual upbringing made her very unique among her classmates. One of these is a runt of the Starmark clan named Eloquence who confides that the responsibilities he has been given make him powerless in determining his future. He has to raise his half brother and be a father to him just like his uncle was to him. It is quite the difficult task given that he has to go to mixed school. But he soon discovers that there is more to his new friends than he had first expected. Kimiko’s warmth and kindness coupled with an adorable pup causes him to make an unexpected marriage proposal to Quin.
“Tamiko and the Two Janitors” by Forthright tells of protest rallies, werewolf scare and conspiracy theories that have made peace impossible to achieve in the US. Political and social unrest have made it hard for most of the Amaranthine to declare their identities. Those that have not gone into seclusion make use of illusions to hide who they really are from the general populace. Tamiko is the newly minted principal of a small school and believes she is doing her best to bring peace in her world. She applies for the school revitalization project ran by Hishoka Twineshaft and also rallies her community to support what they are trying to do. They intend to invite the Amartanthine into their community but what they do not know is that some of her most loyal employees share a dark secret.
