Wu used to be the emperor’s herald however he started behaving in a chaotic manner once the crown corrupted his heart. He was ultimately captured and condemned to a harsh punishment: being frozen in bio-static solution.

After dozens of years, Wu managed to free himself from his captivity and he discovers that everything around him has changed. The world is in ruins and his crown is long gone and is not being used to trigger vibrations huge enough to destroy everything in his path.
