The story follows the young 21-year-old Lumi as she runs into The Zeta Crew: A group of adventures that get paid to hunt rogue magical creatures and sometimes capture people.

"The Steel Seraph" is about comradery, betrayal, trust and most importantly, connections! Connections with friends, family, romantic interests and connections with people you never thought to connect with.
