Due to a special weapon used in the Last War, humans spontaneously catch fire, even when just approaching a small source of fire. The only safe source of energy for humanity resides in the bodies of the “flamelings”, and the duty of hunting them falls to the “firecatchers” who brave the depths of the great forest. Among them are whispered stories of someone who would be the “Firecatcher Lord”, an individual who will be able to harvest the fire from the ancient comet, the “Wandering Spark” that has flown in the sky since it was launched before the Last War, but is now return to land.
