The show is set in a fantasy world where the continent of Verbist is divided into six nations that have been at war for centuries. The story follows a young sorceress named Chaika Trabant, who carries a coffin on her back containing the remains of her father. Chaika hires a group of traveling companions to help her collect the scattered remains of her father in order to give him a proper burial.

The main character, Chaika Trabant, is voiced by Kira Vincent-Davis in the English dub. Chaika is a young sorceress who comes from a powerful family of sorcerers known as the Gaz Empire. However, she has lost her memories and does not know who she is or what her past is. She speaks in a strange language and has a charming personality that often leads her into trouble. Despite her lack of memories, Chaika is determined to find her father's remains and give him a proper burial.

Leraldo Anzaldua voices the character of Toru Acura in the English dub. Toru is a former soldier who has lost his purpose in life after the end of the war.

Toru is initially hired by Chaika to help her find her father's remains, but he later develops a strong sense of loyalty to her and becomes one of her closest allies.

Joanne Bonasso voices the character of Akari Acura in the English dub. Akari is Toru's adopted sister and also a former soldier. She is highly skilled in hand-to-hand combat and is often the one who keeps Toru in check when he becomes too reckless. Akari is fiercely protective of her brother and will do anything to keep him safe.

Chaika's journey to find her father's remains takes her and her companions across the war-torn continent of Verbist. Along the way, they face off against dangerous magical creatures, corrupt government officials, and other sorcerers who are also searching for the remains of the Gaz Empire's former ruler. As they get closer to their goal, they begin to uncover secrets about Chaika's past and the true nature of the war that has been raging for so long.
