On a dark and stormy night in the provincial town of Sharance, a sheep-like monster known as a wooly with unusual golden fluff tumbles from the heavens above. Rescued and cared for by a local girl, the wooly wakes up the next day to find he’s transformed into a young man. Startled and confused, our hero can’t remember much about how he found himself in this situation, but he remembers his name—Micah.
Forced into action by a surprise monster attack, Micah defends his rescuer and finds himself embroiled in a longstanding conflict between the residents of Sharance and a race of horned monsters known as the Univir. With a shocking secret of his own, Micah must work to build bridges between the two races and restore peace to the world.
