While the Renaissance brought hope for a better future, the world of Praxis went through some very dark times indeed before that age began. Some six decades before the Renaissance a group of women was brought together for an experiment by the Demon Kingdom to learn more about the transformation from human to mamonme, but afterwards were instrumental in stopping a malicious plan decades in the making, earning them the title of Demon Braves. Yet their history was nearly lost until efforts were made in the Renaissance to uncover it.
The ending to this little short story taking place in the Kingdom of Russleb.
