It just so happens that Higen Shijin, the man who programmed Shocho in the first place, is Orochito’s ancestor.
With a nice job making sure an AI runs properly, he’s settled down and started a family with his wife Mayu. They even have a young son together named Kiyoshi who likes practicing kendo with his dad. In his free time, he enjoys exploring the wastes with his jetpack, training, and living a peaceful life with his family.
There’s just one problem.
As Higen Shijin’s descendant, everyone expects him to know how to handle Shocho.
And something is getting very weird with that AI. Something is wrong. And life is about to get a lot more complicated for Orochito, and everyone is going to want the answers from him…
Once he finds those answers, how will it change him?
You can find out the answers in WARSONG: Preludes!
