Story: 600 years ago, a group of meteorites rained down upon the planet, destroying its crust and causing catastrophes on a global scale. Following this cataclysmic event, the worlds powers concentrated into the Feyetoll Empire-the single largest global superpower that rose to prominence in the aftermath of the wars that took place during the planets restoration-and the Waise Federation, which was formed in defiance of Feyetoll. Then, out of the burnt remnants of the meteorites that nearly caused the complete destruction of the planet, a new type of energy that would replace the already depleted fossil fuels was discovered. War once again erupted among the powers as they scrambled to take control of this new energy source. However, strange beings called cryptids began to rise forth from meteorite excavation sites around the world. To exterminate these cryptids and combat rival powers, humanity developed REAPER and GRIM REAPER-all-purpose humanoid weapons powered by JUNGFRAU UNITS-and EXOSKELETON, a reinforced power suit worn by humans. They soon took over the battlefield. Soldiers fight for honor and pride of their country. Mercenaries fight with faith in their own knowledge and strength. Men shout out cries of valor. Women dance with grace. For hope. For ambition. For revenge. For love. Upon their sworn oaths, mortals mobilize giants while others clad themselves in armor. TITANOMACHIA CREATE THE BRAVE NEW WORLD IN YOUR HANDS. STRATO HOUND Backstory: STRATO HOUND is a representative exoskeleton developed by Graciez and part of the Hound series. This suit has a lightweight design that is specialized for high-speed close-quarters combat. The expansion hard points have the same specifications of GALE HOUND, making all equipment compatible with STRATO HOUND. One of the most popular weapons used by Balmung, wearers of the STRATO HOUND suit, is the Doppeladler, a collapsible, compound CQC weapon made by Vector Hyde. The weapon is highly compatible with the suit due to its lightweight, compact, and storable qualities and ability to use both its physical blade and beam sword in a single swing. Additional weapons include the Basilisk hand blasters made by Graciez, the developer of the suit. Despite their light weight allowing them to be used even without the suit's support, they have extremely high firepower. They can be used to not only contain cryptids but also serve as main weapons. The portable shield, Belladonna, has a protective surface made of reinforced lightweight plastic. As it does not obstruct the user's vision, it is also effective for ramming.
