This is a story I have finally completed, and is loosely based on the fictional placed described in the novel Lost Horizon by James Hilton. Most notably and more suitably based on the manga/anime series Saiyuki. For those who are unfamiliar with the anime, Shangri La is considered to be an Earthly utopia where humans, demons, magic and science all co-exist and this area is isolated from the outside world. In my story everything is similar except for the utopia part but mostly this is just my spin on Saiyuki.
In this game you will be the eyes of three half breed demonic brothers known throughout the lands as the Raum Brothers. Consisting of Renove, Rubues, and Relick they are triplets born from a human mother who died while giving birth to them. Their father, once the First General in the army of Abaddon (King of Demons), also died, but in the line of duty. The brothers where cursed at birth with forbidden magic by a sorceress who was attempting to kill the brothers but was stopped by their father. The curse being, that they have a limit set on their demonic powers and they can only use those limited powers when together. If separated they would loose all demonic powers and revert into their human forms.
A few small incidents had occurred and the humans decided that it was impossible for them to co-exist with demons knowing their potential to kill, mainly in fear of a future catastrophic incident. This would lead to a war that would last for almost 400 years. Eventually the humans would gain the advantage in the war forcing the demons to a secluded area in the west. To avoid another war the Abaddon (Demon King) agrees to these arrangements and it has been this way for about 20 years.
Presently, there has been a new Abaddon (King of Demons) appointed after the death of the last and the new King of Demons does not agree with the arrangements and has plans to kill all humans and take control of Shangri La. However, the humans have created Demon seeking androids called Omnibots to keep things in order. While also being no push overs themselves with the invention of Chi Emitters.
As for the brothers, even though the sorceress was stopped by their father she still managed to escape unharmed and due to the complexity of this forbidden magic only she can remove the curse. The brothers, who now serve in the demonic army of their guardian the new Abaddon, who was also their fathers best friend, wish to seek out the sorceress to lift the curse. Their search is not with out peril, as they defend themselves against demon hunters, Omnibots, and those demons jealous of their power.
The eldest of the three brothers by minutes, which makes him feel as though he is the leader of the trio. Has a very smug attitude and is always looking for an advantage in any situation. A tactical genius, however, he is powerless against females.

The baby of the three so to speak. Relick once was just as outgoing as his brothers but during a battle with the son the Abaddon (Agares) he was hit the hardest, almost dying.
