From the outset, the Church swiftly seized control over Central Station, establishing an iron grip on the heart of this desolate realm. Bolstered by the indomitable Sun Corps, the Church’s formidable army, they possessed unrivaled strength, thanks to their access to an infinite reserve of the mystical substance known as Wax. This extraordinary resource bestowed upon them unparalleled vigor and vitality, surpassing all others who inhabited the Station.

To this day, Central Station stands as the most coveted place within the entire Underworld, beckoning countless souls who yearn for its relative comfort and refuge. Alas, such aspirations are often thwarted, for the Station remains closed to visitors for the majority of the year, with a single exception—the fateful day of Ascension.

Once in a great while, within the majestic confines of the Great Hand’s temple, nestled in the heart of Central Station, an arcane ritual unfolds. This solemn ceremony demands the sacrifice of innocent newborns. The Father, the revered leader of the Church, personally selects the children who will be offered to their God, the Hand, invoking ancient powers beyond mortal comprehension. These very gates, which once ushered the Church’s faithful into this world, now accept the innocent infants, leading them to an unknown fate.

After a large-scale catastrophe, the remnants of humanity took refuge underground, where they founded a new religious society. Forgetting sunlight, they blindly worship the god of the new world — the great Hand, which once every few years descends to the Central Station to people and takes the chosen newborns to itself, to the world hidden behind the huge gates of the Temple. The protagonist goes on a dangerous journey through a hostile world, hoping to find a way to open the gates of the Temple and return his child.
