Year 93 of the Sand Era. In a vast, endless sea of sand, a lone colony of people live upon an ever-moving island known as the Mud Whale. Chakuro, the archivist of the Mud Whale, chronicles the lives and deaths of the people who live there. The five hundred souls of the island are divided into a majority of "marked ones", short-lived people who can use a psychokinetic power known as Thymia, and a small minority of "unmarked ones", who don't have any powers but have normal lifespans and rule the ship.

This discovery may announce the end of their world…
