The year is 1429 and the Hundred Years' War has continued for nearly a century with no end in sight. Pierre, a bastard in both lineage and temperament, is the leader of the Unicorns of Anju, a band of mercenaries who fight solely for coin and who are not above pillaging and raping villages in search of it. They believe that the foolish fight for justice and ideals, for such empty things leave the stomach equally empty. Drifting from battlefield to battlefield, the Unicorns of Anju find themselves in the employ of La Hire, who is in the service of Jeanne D'arc. She enraptures Pierre; but he, ever the mercenary, coerces a promise from her. Under the guidance of Jeanne D'arc, the tide of war begins to shift in France's favor. Nevertheless, how long will she be able to withstand the burden of the hopes and dreams of an entire country?
