In the Dark Ages, the land was chaotic due to conflict among the warlords. At the peak of the bloodshed, five angelic mistresses known as "Intoners" descended from the heavens, possessing the unique ability to manipulate magic through sacred melodies, and conquered the warlords to put an end to the conflict. They were praised by the people and became rulers of the different regions of the area. The strongest of the Intoners, One, wishes to unite the five sisters once again to bring everlasting peace to their land; however, a dark and powerful outcasted sixth Intoner, named Zero, emerges determined to destroy the other five Intoners.
