story

The long-awaited daughter Ronya is born to the bandit leader Mattis and his wife. However, that night, lightning struck and created a large fissure in the fortress where the couple lived, known as the “mouth of hell.” Ronya grows up loved by her parents and their friends, but Ronya is the only child in the fort where they live. Ronya is finally allowed to go out of the fortress by herself, but after playing happily in the forest, she falls asleep.
You may even find yourself surrounded by “gray dwarfs”.

In the same forest, there was another group of bandits led by Borka, who were in conflict with the bandits led by Mattis. Borka was able to escape the crackdown by bribing the village magistrate, but due to the magistrate’s betrayal, he was set on fire. One day, Ronya discovers a child other than herself for the first time on the other side of the “mouth of hell”. The boy’s name is Birk. He was Borka’s son. Ronya and Birk, the children of rival bandits, gradually develop a friendship despite their repulsion…
