Summary

WARNING!! MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS!!


Embraced by the Seas of Calista


A newly appointed garrison commander steps foot on French-governed Calista, said to be the most beautiful Island in the Mediterranean Sea. His name is Charles Villeneuve de Liberta. Though born on Calista Island, circumstances led to him being raised in France. Now, he returns after a long absence. Charles harbors grand ambitions that will determine the island’s destiny.

He arrives on a special day for Calista, the “Anniversary of Aldo’s Death.” In an incident that goes back 28 years, a man named Aldo led an independence movement in an attempt to win independence for the islanders after they had been worked like slaves under French military rule. But fearing Aldo’s devoted resistance, the military executed him. His spirit, together with his final words, have been passed down on the island: “A boy born on this day will carry on my ambition, to lead the way toward independence that was never achieved.” In accordance with those words, Roberto Gorgi came into the world on the day Aldo was killed. He became leader of a group whose activities are dedicated to Calista Island’s independence. And so resistance to the French military continues.

The Governor-General’s Office promptly holds a banquet to celebrate Charles’ appointment. In France, the system has been rocked by citizens angered over the tyranny of the aristocracy. The island’s aristocracy have taken a stand against the movement, and although Charles tells them about the situation in Paris, they find it impossible to believe the monarchy could fall. Charles is baffled by how the ruling class is turning a blind eye to the danger. He heads out to the back garden of the Governor-General’s house. Suddenly he is assaulted by someone. Charles, who knows the identity of the person intending to take his life, faces the darkness to state, “I am waiting tonight on the shore of Lefkos.”

So that night, the figure appearing at the arranged location is that of Roberto. The boy born on the day of Aldo’s death is in fact two people. Roberto is with one more person: Charles. The local people believe that Roberto and Charles, who were raised together on the island as children, are the incarnation of their hero. Indeed, the pair have felt that their personal mission is to liberate Calista. However, Charles set off for France one day after being suddenly taken away by his father. In the following 20 years, he becomes a commander in the French military, and returns once again to Calista.

With France in turmoil, Charles convinces Roberto he can win Calista’s independence. This confidence was behind his application to serve as commander, he says. However, Roberto has doubts about Charles when the Commander launches a surprise attack against his own independence faction, with his friend losing complete faith in him. In this light, Roberto’s fiancée, Alicia Grandie, a member of the independence faction, is the only person starting to believe that Charles, who is intent on persuasion, appears to have strong dedication to the cause.

However, Charles’ encounter with Alicia will lead to a major shift in his destiny.
