A dangerous rumor spread across the planet, sotries that say Luna, who was thought to be killed directly before the start of the Ruin, is alive and she's healing everyone who meets her. A crippled Robot with the will of a humanoid walks into the homefront of danger, in search of the truth behind these rumors, in search of Luna.

Bandits trail this man, instead they arein search of joining Dio's army, their arrogance leads them to underestimate this man, their arrogance leads them to death. The leader of the army, Dio and his partener Leda, the woman who saved him from Casshern and Lyuze lay in wait of their ever growing army. Dio waits impatiently for his time to defeat Casshern and prove to everyone on the planet, including his army that he is stronger then Casshern. Leda reassures him that he has gathered an army, an empire that will surpass that of Braiking Boss.

The God of Death

The God of Death rises from the depths of his own sorrow

Outside of the army, a man with every recollection of his past heads straight for Dio, in order to find what he desires. He is confronted when he enteres the castle grounds for speaking of Luna, this man is underestimated and easily clashes the Bandits to peaces. Recognizing his talents, Leda recognizes this man as Dune, The God of Death. Dune is infact ensnared by the past he refuses to let go, his drive for Luna has driven him to the brink of insanity, as a potential threat, Leda challenges Dune to a duel.

Dio and Leda

Manipulation comes in many shapes and forms

Dune barley possess his sanity, but his strength remains strong enough to best Leda in battle, nearly taking her life until Dio steps in to battle. Dio plans to destroy Dune and the past he cannot forget, though Dune defends himself well he is defeated by Dio's rage after he mistakes him for Casshern. Encamped in his rage, Dio moves to finish Dune off until he is stopped by Leda who reassures that Dio is the only absolute in this world, not Casshern. Dio moves on to finally leading his army, he assures them that he alone will defeat Casshern and stop the ruin though behind the scenes, Dio is controlling the army but Leda has successfully baited Dio into doing so. Meanwhile, driven by the rumors, Dune continues on his journey to escape his pain..the pain of being trapped in his past.
