“Cosmic Era (C.E.)

An era where a genetically engineered humankind with enhanced brains and strength (Coordinators), and naturally born humankind (Naturals) exist together.

A war had previously raged on between the Coordinator and the Naturals in a clash of ideals in regards to their own self beings

During the time, the Destiny Plan had been brought up which would may have created a world without war, but each individuals would be forcibly given a role to play.

To protect the humanity’s freedom to choose their future and hope, the Destiny Plan was rejected in the battle.

With many sacrifices, the war had ended.

However despite so, conflict and hate between the two humankind still continue to happen throughout the world.”
