Ark hails from Grandis, a world parallel to Maple World, and is part of the High Flora race.
The Flora launch a devastating civil war, and Ark is shocked by the level of destruction.
While attempting to escape, he is captured by the High Flora, and labeled a traitor.
During his captivity, an accident occurs that leaves Ark as half-Flora and half-Specter and without memory.
While Ark only wants peace for Grandis, the Specter part of him wants to destroy.
In the war-torn landscape, Ark wanders searching for peace for Grandis and peace within himself.
Ark can switch between two states.
- Flora State uses the magical abilities of the Flora.
- Specter State gathers its power from the abyss.
Fill the Spectra Gauge in the Flora State and use it to trigger Specter State.
Enter Specter State and pass through the abyss to deal ferocious damage to enemies.
Summon the beast that resides within the abyss to lash out, consuming monsters.
