This is the story of the beginning…From where shall I tell?
E.C. 015By the hands of Hänsel and Gretel, the “Seven Deadly Sins” were unleashed into the world.
Afterwards, over the span of a thousand years the “Seven Deadly Sins” came to bring forward countless tragedies.
How were the “Seven Deadly Sins” born?Who exactly were “Hänsel” and “Gretel”?
Let’s tell the story leading up to that point here, from start to end.
We’ll go back twenty years ago, before the calendar called Evillious was even created.
Inheriting the civilization legacy of a previous period, The Magic Kingdom Levianta displayed overwhelming prosperity. The prophet reigning at its summit, Queen Merry-Go-Round, received a divine message. That was the beginning of everything. They had taken over from the previous period, along with civilization, a dark legacy, “Sin”. It would eventually lead the way to the world’s “complete death”. It is said that to hold off their downfall, they had to reincarnate the dragon god Levia-Behemo as humans, and purify “Sin”……
The senate decided to artificially create the reincarnations for Levia-Behemo. Project “Ma” was begun by Merry-Go-Round’s son, Adam Moonlit, as its supervisor.
What they needed to make Project “Ma” succeed was the woman who would become the birth mother of the dragon gods. It was also decided that should the project be a success, that woman would be revered as the “The Mother/Ma (Mem Aleph)”, and be granted the right to become Levianta’s Queen. There was a flood of applicants for that at the Royal Research Institute, but as becoming the mother required great magic, no one who was able to clear the requirements showed themselves. Among them, Adam brought a lone woman to the institute. She admirably passed the examination, and was chosen to receive treatment as the “Ma” subject.
She was Adam’s girlfriend, and went by the name of Eve Zvezda.
Before long Eve became pregnant with children. Inspection results showed that they were twins. The children in her womb were given the names “Cain” and “Abel”, and it was decided to observe their continual progress.
~Eve’s Project~This is the story of the beginningFrom where shall I tell?My name is Eve ZvezdaThe best witch in this country
The name of the man I love is AdamA very superior scientistHe gave me a kissAnd told me“After this you will become the mother of gods,‘Mem Aleph’”
<The dark legacy “sin”>Eventually it will destroy the countryThe great prophet informed as muchThe means to prevent that is reincarnation of the two dragon godsWe shall let the “Twins of God” be birthed
The project begins, search for the candidates for motherThey’ll search for the woman who surpassed all in magical talentThe person elected “Ma”, yes,Will be this country’s new queen
I don’t know whyI was selectedHe embraced me withAn “It’s alright”When everything’s over with,Let’s have a marriage ceremonyIn our favorite,Held’s forest
The divine seedIs embedded in the cradleI wait for the time they will be born,The “Twins of God”
~Adam’s Project~This is the story of the beginningFrom where should I tell?My name is Adam MoonlitThe best scientist in this country
I have regretful newsThe project was a failureThe twins were bornAlready deadWith that, all my dreams and ambitionsDisappeared
To me project “Ma”Is a heaven-sent chanceI will use it and control this countryThe senate and SethTook my mother from meNow it’s time to punish them
The project begins, the candidate is a witch of Nemu villageWe were acquainted and in temptation I made her my own loverIt was a simple thing with the "brainwashing drug venom”I shouldn’t have had any doubts, but
My beloved Eve,I’ve broken you, I’m sorryMy miscalculations were that the twins diedAnd that you,Who I was with just to use,I truly came to love, completely
Come, let’s get married in that forestIn our favorite, Held’s forest
“I love you!” “I love you~”The night the stars were broken,The moon and star vanished from the south sky
~Seth’s Project~This is the story of the beginningFrom where should I tell, hm?My name is Seth TwirightThe best scientist in this country
“Cain” and “Abel” were a failure“Adam” and “Eve” disappeared
I must search forThe next “Mem Aleph”
For the sake of having my ambitions granted
The first Project “Ma” met with the conclusion of the twins’ stillbirth, and the disappearance of its subject and the person in charge. The senate appointed Seth Twiright as the new project head, and ordered the execution of the second Project “Ma”.
At that time, Levianta was troubled by the many rebellious acts committed by the “Apocalypse” organization, spearheaded by Pale Nöel.
The chief members of “Apocalypse” were the following four:• The “Master of Malice”, Pale Nöel• The “Witch of Merrigod”, Meta Salmhofer• The “Black Baron”, Yegor Asayef• The “White Fiend of Jakoku”, Raisa Netsuma
Seth’s attention was drawn by the rare, high amount of magic in Meta Salmhofer, who was Pale’s girlfriend. With the senate’s cooperation, Seth planned her capture.
There were few who knew that Seth and Pale were twins who had been separated at birth.
I ran through a forest path where flowers scatterA pair of red fruitsHeld to my breast, I run through the night; a runaway
Not knowing my father, and not knowing my motherI had grown up all aloneWhen I was 20, the one I lovedWas a culprit of murder
If you’re attracted to evilYou’ll find yourself tainted tooAnd the people called me “Witch”
I ran through an evil path where flowers bloomA criminal who was splattered with red, fresh bloodAnd fled to a corrupted love
“My children aren’t anywhere”Cried a bloodstained, wailing womanLooking down on thatI was suddenly wreathed in chains
My sins will one day be judgedThe prison is inhuman and darkA scientist who resembles himStood in front of my execution chair
I, who wants to leave from hereThe scientist, who wants a subjectNow, our two interests overlapped
I ran through a cold stone pathTaking off my white prisoner clothesThe destination I face is a research lab
The embedded divine seedPulsated inside of meThe two adorable twins I had birthedExperimental subjects without a father
I remember, I rememberThat I was a ghoul childOnce manufactured inside a beakerIn this same way
My own children connected by the beakerI know it’s selfishI won’t let these children become their toys!
It was a life of only running awayThe love I was not grantedEven a fragment ofI want to give to my children at least
I ran through a forest path where flowers scatterTwo babies that I loveHeld to my breast, I run through the night; a runaway
In a neighboring country, we live hiddenWe had to stay out of the public eyeIn moonlit nights we go outThe children and I, in our favorite, Held’s forestIt should have become a fun walk, butIn the mere moment I had taken my eyes off them,
“My children aren’t anywhere!”
The country was excited by the births of the Twins of God, “Hänsel” and “Gretel”, and to commemorate this, Merry-Go-Round established a new “Evillious Calendar”, marking the year that they were born as the first in the calendar.
But situation completely changed due to Meta escaping with the twins. It was arranged that the whole country’s search for the twins would commence.
And, starting from there Seth’s past history of experimenting in the creation of artificial humans was also confirmed. He was to be dismissed from the Research Institute.
On the other side, Meta made good on her escape to the nearby country of Elphegort and began a new life with her children inside a forest isolated from the public eye.
Without knowing that in this same forest was the original “Ma”, Eve…
In a dark dark corner of the forestI picked up red red fruits
These are surely wonderful, wonderfulPresents from God
If I carry them home will we be delighted, I wonder?Maybe so happy we’ll cry
The moon is very pretty today, isn’t it?Let’s hurry, hurry to return home
For on a dark night such as this, a scary bear comes out
At long last I’ve found them, finally I’ve found themI certain don’t want to do something like hand them over to anyone, to anyone
I run through a forest path where flowers bloomWhile I’m carrying with me red fruitsIf I return like this, he and ISurely can become happy
Later on however, a bear thatMade a scary face chases mePlease, forgive mePlease overlook me
I knew that in truth, these fruitsAre that bear’s treasures
I run, a wandering runI won’t hand over my happinessThe bear’s form is illuminated by the moonIts dark shadow draws closer to me
The correct path is already lostBut still I run, I only runI cry, the bear was crying tooThe two fruits were also crying
At last I finally arrived, at my beloved homeHe was kindly smiling, butHe saw the fruit I heldAnd made a very sad face
“Listen, our children are alreadyNot in this worldReturn these childrenTo their true mother’s side”
Even if reality tore me apart somedayWith its fangs and clawsThose warm, kind fruitsI wanted them at any cost
God, with my own handsI committed an unforgivable sin“If you do it now you can start over”He said that, but
“That’s impossible! Because I already…”
Lying down outside the houseIs the corpse of a lone womanNearby, full of milkWas a small glass bottle…
In Levianta the search for the “Twins of God” was continued. Project “Ma” was carried out concurrently to that, but they were unable to birth new divine successors after “Hänsel” and “Gretel”.
And twelve years passed by.E.C. 013
Four women were selected as candidates for the 7th Project “Ma”. The documents in which were written their personal histories was submitted to the Research Institute. Among them were the namesIrina Clockworker,andElluka Chirclatia.
