Shun, a Japanese man, wakes up at an empty spaceship named Origin bringing him to a planet 5 light years away named Thea. Shun was invited to live there by the SIREN corporation to free himself from his unwanted job as a yakuza of syndicate Yagami-kai, initially suggested by brother Takeshi, who also registered for the trip but was killed by the Yagami-kai due to Shun being dealt by police. He saw a shadow moving, which the group saw throughout. He, along with Lana, Logan, and three other men and two women, roam around searching for anyone in the ship. Whilst Lana, Shun, and one man go to the upper floor, one man in the same floor curiously pressed a button which causes the ladder steps to be retracted, causing the one man going up to fall and die. Shun and Lana soon saw the solar sail damaged, raising more questions. The group then picked up a crew's signal, prompting four to search for him, whilst a woman was investigating the problem; she found out that there was an emergency evacuation that somehow left them. Shun and Lana went to a room where something hit the ship and found a demon-acting man, whilst the other two revived a crew named Evelyn Rey, who warned that the man inside the room is hazardous.
