In another time...

A human village stood in a remote land, where dinosaurs roamed freely.
This was Utakata village, ruled by the arrogant queen Larsa.
Humans co-existed with the dinosaurs, and enjoyed a peaceful existence within their small kingdom.

One day, this village was attacked by the Koju.
These were insect Koju, alien to the region.
They used their great bodies to smash human homes, blasting them with toxic "levitation energy" and laying waste to the village.

To protect his country, Aki, the first son of Larsa, fought against the attack.
Aki used his talents for taming animals to train dinosaurs to fight the Koju.
The war went on for years.
When the Koju retreated, more would appear to take their place.
They pressed the attack relentlessly...
Aki set off for Shinju Forest on his own, where the god of the Koju was said to reside, to learn why the Koju were attacking the village.

Some time after Aki had left the kingdom, the Koju attacks stopped.
However, Aki had not returned.

Queen Larsa awaited the return of her beloved son.
For immeasurably long months, she waited.
Among her many princes, the brave and sharp Aki was special to the Queen.
Aki was her only heir.
Surely he would return.
She swore to herself: if only he would come back, everything would be right once more and the throne could be passed to him.

Alas, a cruel report was delivered from the Shinju Forest search party.
Aki had been killed by Princess Reco, of Hoshifuri village.

"How dare beloved Aki!
Your days are numbered little princess!"

The Queen planned an expedition to Shinju Forest.
This forest was ruled by Koju and filled with volatile levitation energy; it could not be attacked head-on.
There, the queen had a revelation.

"Why not send my simple little Palm...muhahaha"

Pawn to his mother's ambitions, Palm was the 8th and youngest prince of the realm.
He was pure and unaffected, and adored his mother. Yet for the Queen, Palm could never be Aki, and he was nothing more than one prince among many.

"Your gentle brother has been maliciously murdered by an ugly little girl from Shinju forest."

So the queen stirred up Palm's hatred.

"If you can lure this Reco out of Shinju forest, the throne will be yours for the taking."

For Palm, the Queen's proposal was an unprecedented opportunity.
Here he could play the critical role of taking revenge for his brother, and inherit the throne to prolong his life and rise in the ranks...

"Mother, I swear: I will bring that girl back to you!"

The next morning, Palm hopped on his favorite dinosaur and set off to Shinju Forest in high spirits.

...There were other princes who could inherit the throne.
Surely it would be no loss for one to fall in battle.

These were the foolish thoughts of the Queen.


Princess Reco of Hoshifuri village had defeated Aki, god of the forest, and become the protector goddess of Shinju Forest.
Kiniro's wounds healed thanks to the living forest, and Reco's broken heart mended. Still, a vague sense of foreboding recently haunted her.

On one of her regular walks through Shinju Forest, Reco encountered a young boy.
He had collapsed along with his companion, a large dinosaur.

Reco peered down at the young boy: "Hey, are you ok?"

Opening his eyes, the boy gazed at Reco's face.

" I?" he asked Reco.
"This place is called Shinju Forest, but it's a place humans are forbidden to enter."
"My name is Reco, and I'm the goddess who protects this forest."

When Reco said this, the floodgates within his heart broke and he began to speak.
He had to get to "Utakata Village", deep within the crystal sea.
This was his home, and it was being assaulted by hordes of Koju...
So declared the young boy, whose name was Palm.

"If you're really a goddess, you can put a stop to this."
"Are you saying you need my help?"

Palm nodded sharply.

"Oh what to do...leaving the forest unprotected could be dangerous...
but I can't just ignore people in trouble..."

Reco thought hard, and made her decision.

"Ok! I'll be glad to help if you really think my power can be of service.
Aki would want it this way, I know it."

"By the way, who is that big guy behind you?"
"Oh that's my dragon buddy Hirow! He carried me all the way here."
"I see. Hello there Hirow!"
"So you'll come with me right, Miss g-god-"
"Call me Reco!"
"Er, er, alright then Reco, hehe."

This is how Reco and Palm came to leave Shinju Forest behind and begin their grand adventure.
There was, however, no way for Reco to know the terrible price that Shinju Forest would pay for her absence.
