In the land of Koristea,
the year 1803, in 7th year of the reign of the Emperor,
great men wanted a greater place for their legacy.
When barely the peasants even knew how to spell their name,
the fruit of their masters' loins deserved a school.
Nay, an academy. A grand institution of learning,
building upon their highborn status.
The House of Rikasa,
the great Duke Winfred the Worthy,
would found The Grand Academy of Tcresse.
Within a month, the very best of the empire,
would send their progeny to the academy.
For 20 years, the academy stood.
Little changed, and everything that changed,
changed for the better.
But all nobles have secrets.
Within the Grand Academy,
a club was founded.
'The Club for Grand Gentlemen.'
Outwardly, it was the exclusive club of social leisure.
Joining required an invitation,
and it seemed that breeding was no guarantee of entry.
Nor anything else anyone could fathom.
There was a secret to it.
Everyone, almost everyone, within the club,
had a secret.
A deadly secret.
This is your time in the Grand Academy of Tcresse.
Or more accurately...
The Grand Academy of Secrets.
