The story’s setting
The series is set in an alternate history world where magic exists and has been refined by contemporary technology. The capacity to utilise magic, on the other hand, is determined by heredity, restricting the number of magicians on the planet. The world’s superpowers moved to these four nations following the 20-year-long Third World War, which decreased the world’s population to 3 billion people. These four nations are the United States of North America (USNA), the New Soviet Union, the Great Asian Alliance, and Japan. In Japan, the Ten Master Clans, rather than the government, control the magic society informally. Due to the scarcity of magicians, they are considered a commodity and are compelled to enrol in schools and occupations linked to magic.
