It tells a story about a squad of teenagers that learns they are successors of a power of The Charmed – a group od people who possesses powers of nature.
Almost a three thousand years ago the land of Iadina was the centre of the great magic. Many of people were sorcerers and mages controling the "power of nature". However, the small group of mages, known as The Charmed had the greatest power of all using it to protect people of Iadina from negative energy known as The Darkens. Unfortunately one day the "normal" people of Iadina recognized the magic as too dangerous and they started to persecute mages and sorcerers. After some time wizards began to recant they magic powers in order to survive the more and more brutal persecutions, even The Charmed. However, though they didn't have the magic anymore, the magic itself still exited on Iadina. Many years have passed and people have forgotten about magic.
Youth Army and New Darkens
In the present Iadina is a centre of an advanced technology. However the politycal structure on the planet is highly unstable - there is a universal authoritarianism and parennial war between two greatest countries - Liber and Roria. People are very poor and they are regularly persecuted by night police. The story is about the group of six orphaned teenagers, the Youth Army who are trying to run away from metal guards in the capital of Liber, Liberty City. One day they meet a strange old man who tells them the legend of The Charmed and The Darkens. In that moment no one of the Youth Army believes in that, however a few days later they fell into the deep of Liberty City and finds ancient ruins od The Charmed hideout. After that day they found out they can use the mythical magic of nature. They don's even know they were choosen by magic to be the next Charmed.
