In the outskirts of the pleasure city, Midas, lies the special autonomous district of Keres. Within the harsh class-based society, this area, situated at the lowest rung, is commonly referred to as the Slums. Riki, who had been returned to his old stomping grounds in the Slums by Iason after three years, reunites with his former comrades. Among them is Guy, the only partner Riki ever opened up to. Riki, who once led the delinquent group "Bison" and exuded an overwhelming presence, returns to the Slums, accompanied by unpleasant rumors spreading throughout the area. Despite not offering any explanations, Riki occasionally displays a troubled expression. Guy senses a subtle transformation in Riki's demeanor.

Riki unexpectedly reunites with Iason at the pet auction venue. Unable to conceal his shock, Riki drinks at a run-down shot bar on the outskirts while vividly recalling bitter memories of pleasure and suffering. It all began three years ago on that fateful night. Riki, a streetwise Slum mongrel, would steal valuables from the crowds, then race through the unending nightlife of the city of Midas. Seeking both sustenance for survival and the thrill of the hunt, he scouted for easy targets. Suddenly, someone grabbed his wrist from behind. With a chilling tone, the one who had captured him was none other than Iason, a Blondie who stood at the pinnacle of the privileged class...
