This is just an average day for Alexander “Dragon” Drayzaai and Lushian “Weed” Nicolier, two childhood friends raised in the War Zone at a young age. Both Dragon and Weed were former members of the military and a spiritual program called “Professional Assassins”. From this unique upbringing, the duo have learned special skills. Due to this they are prized by the Common Army of Europe (UNECA), and are part of “Die in Piece” missions which of course no one wants to associated with. As their abilities develop an ancient organization will arise to take them under its wing from the depths of the shadows. But what will happen next?
