A tale of blood and wealth weaved by feminism.
Deka, age 16, is terrified and eagerly awaits the blood ceremony that will determine if she will be accepted into her tribe. Deka, who already stands out from the others due to her unusual intuition, prays for red blood in order to feel more at home. However, on the day of the ritual, her blood becomes a purplish gold tint, and Deka knows she will suffer an outcome worse than death.

Then a mysterious woman approaches her and offers her the option to either remain in the hamlet and accept her fate or to join an army of girls who are just like her in fighting for the emperor. They are known as alkali-near-immortals with exceptional abilities. The biggest threat to the empire can only be stopped by them.
