Check out the synopsis and the characters’ profile, provided by MassHive Media.
The world of Azure Saga: Pathfinder is situated in a world where human races live inside a group of colony in the outer space. After their previous planet corrupted due to the overly-advanced technology, they gather around creating colonies and heading towards the outer space to find a habitable planet to be their new home. They have a high hope that there’s another planet they can find as the prophecy says in the legend called Azure.
The story of Azure Saga: Pathfinder itself focuses on Synch, the son of a scientist from the Mothership of NEBULA’s colony, alongside with his Droid assistance: NOiDE D30 (Noide). They decided to fly from their Mothership colony to pick up his father which was trapped, at that time, within a planet that has a potential to be their new home. Due to an unknown reason, the Mothership colony finally decided to leave the orbit of that particular planet and to abandon all of the people and experiments there.
In the middle of their expedition, Synch’s spaceship was shot by the guards of their own colony and was dragged into the vortex star. Once he’s awaken, Synch was shocked as he saw himself in a completely different planet. Due to his spaceship having a severe damage, they were unable to analyze their own location and they couldn’t fly back to the outer space. However, with the remaining radars they had left, Noide managed to find an energy that may be suitable for their spaceship and thus they decided to embark on a journey to find them.
However, everything isn’t running so smoothly as they fell into a political conflict of the human civilization on that planet during their journey.
