The show revolves around the story of Nike, a princess from the Rain Dukedom who possesses the ability to control the weather. In order to save her country from a prolonged drought, Nike is sent to marry the Sun King of the Sun Kingdom, Livius I.

Despite her apprehensions, Nike sets out on her journey to meet her future husband, who is notorious for his cold and brutal nature. However, upon reaching the Sun Kingdom, Nike discovers that Livius is not the ruthless king she was warned about, but a young boy of only twelve years old.

While Nike initially struggles to adjust to her new life in the Sun Kingdom, Livius starts to warm up to her and they form a close bond.
