These characters are both familiar and new, combining their tales in unique ways with every performance.
The musician chooses which character (male or female) to fight with much like a video game, then embarks on quests where they meet other elemental mythological humanoid creatures. Each quests rewards them with a musical key – melody, harmony, rhythm. These keys combine to defeat Morloke, the god of the dead.
