Campus Hierarchy

Amongst the residents, there a Hierarchy of Darkness. At the top of the hierarchy of races are the Mermaids, then Vampires and High-Class Devils. Those that reign above may use the “Obedience Order” to force those under them into absolute obedience. At the very bottom of the hierarchy lies the Zombies.

Our Heroine’s prestigious school

Alderic School only allows the elites as their students, and these students of various races live in the campus dormitory while enrolled here. By the order of the Principal, the use of “Obedience Order” is prohibited but…


Our heroine, Cloé, was born and raised in a caged town behind tall fences. All the residents of this town are zombies, like Cloé. Daily life in this town is peaceful…

Apart from the many suicides. Cloé has always wished to learn more about the outside world, and one day… Cloé receives an admission notice for a prestigious school, only enrolled by the elites of various races.

Werewolf, Invisible man, Vampire, Mummy… Enjoy a hierarchical school life with these charming residents of the dark! In this school, Cloé learns of the forbidden love across racial barrier…
