Due to her unprincess-like conduct, Mint lost her right to the throne of East Heaven Kingdom to her younger sister, Maya. Furious, the only things on Mint's mind are world domination and vengeance against her sister. To achieve these two goals, she seeks a mysterious [relic] to help achieve her ambition.

Mint's crass, out-spoken, quick-witted, spunky, and wholly without shame. She's a top-notched magic user and isn't afraid to use her powers.

Important NPCs
An avid archeological researcher, or more like hobbyist, Klaus runs a business at Carona selling items he has excavated. He's very passionate about this field and quite determined to find as many artifacts as he can. He is also a kind person and doesn't mind helping you with information as you search for the [relic].

The leader of a two-team group, Belle travels the world in search of valuable artifacts with Duke. She's bossy, loves luxury and expensive items, and is quite a decent fighter as well. But don't ever call her "old" or you'll really get it.
