Prince Vald is forced by circumstance to use his family's cursed sword, and so he seeks out the services of Havi, a sorcerer to help him lift the curse. They travel to find the materials to help lift the curse. The curse is unknown to Vald, but it manifests itself as turning Vald into a bloodthirsty and lustful demon at night. Havi subdues the demon by having sex with it, and when Vald awakes, he remembers nothing.
