‘Present day, present time’ – The megalopolis that was once called Tokyo… many are the names and the shapes that it took throughout its long history… but it survived. And even in this day, it lives on… as “Tokyo Millenium”; the city of the messiah faith. The faith which gathered under its wings the hearts and minds of millions who cry out for the advent of the Messiah.
Back in the beginning, it was being built to turn the dream of the Thousand Year Kingdom into a reality, but neither God nor Messiah appeared within its walls.
And then, time went. And very soon, some of its citizens became much more equal than others…
As the helm of Millennium, is the governing body know as Center.
Under direct authority of the Center are the Temple Knights, elite military group which serves the function of a police force.
The elite of Millennium are the First Rank Citizes who are given to right to live in the Center freely.
There are those who are permitted the ownership of an Arm Terminal. Those are considered the Second Rank Citizens.
And last come those who are merely recognized as residents of Tokyo Millenium. Those are considered the Common Rank Citizens.
