Hero, the illegitimate son of Zeus and unaware of his true nature, is presented as a simple plebeian, powerless in the face of the war and violence that rages on the streets of Greece following the appearance of ferocious demons. It will be the appearance of these terrifying monsters to make the protagonist discover his divine origins, completely changing his life.
