Varin is a slix - a magical beast, charged with protecting whoever lives in the house he is atached to. When his family dies in a fire, he promises himself never to grow close to any humans ever again. But his determination is tested by Du Nasu - the fierce, gifted daughter in a family of immigrants fleeing civil war, who seems determined to be his friend. Worse, he must also face off against the evil tarsier ID Ilbu, sent by a goddess of revenge to wreak havoc on Du Nasu's family. Aided by his long-time love, Paya, the garden god the Green Hedgehog, and a little girl who won't give up, Varin faces up to the furry menace - but may finally have met an enemy who is beyond him.
