Synopsis[]

Two soldiers from warring countries are bound by a pledge as master and servant. Taki Reizen is a Commander of sublime beauty, shouldering the fate of his nation. Called "Mad Dog" because of his rough temperament, Klaus has sworn his loyalty to him as a knight. Despite this, those around them are cold and disapproving, full of various misgivings. For all their genuine feelings, what will come of love made cruel by the violence of war?

Characters[]

Taki Reizen[]

Meeting Klaus when he was younger and asking for his help in acquiring a flower for his ceremonial headgear, Taki then asked Klaus if he would give himself to him and be his knight. Nine years later Taki has entered Luckenwalde Military Academy to learn how to operate tanks. After Eurote broke the treaty with the Western Alliance and invaded Dheedene, Taki was deported back to his country. In a combat based environment Taki is thought of well by others. Visiting the injured he is upset to learn of the wounds they sustained. Occasionally he reminds Klaus to know his place when in public and does not entertain any affections not even looking at him in some cases. This disappears when alone with Klaus where Taki is submissive to him. This is not due to the shame of being overpowered by a subordinate as Klaus suspects but because Taki was shown at a early age that a dog who bit their owner had to be euthanised. Directing troops in battle Taki uses the radio communications effectively and decisively intervenes when Klaus is in danger to save his life.

Klaus von Wolfstadt[]

Meeting Taki again later, this time Klaus is under orders to get close to him. From observing and protecting him love would develop between them. The night after Taki was ordered to be sent home Klaus initiated their first romantic encounter. While he dutifully serves Taki and keeps close by to him Klaus is frustrated by Taki's distantness. In bed with him Taki continues the act even with people outside the door where he continues talking to them as if nothing is amiss. Among compatriots in a country foreign to him Klaus has a reputation as a "mad dog". Using his motorbike Klaus is able to get close to enemy troops who see him as one of them due to his appearance and apprehend them at gunpoint.
