Fujita is a magic user residing in the Magic userrsquos domain working for a company headed by En: a powerful magic user. Fujita isnrsquot a very good magic user at all himself the only times he manages to produce any magical smoke at all are times when he or someone he cares about are in a bit of a bind. For example when in the Hole the domain of nonusers he and a friend of his are stopped by Caiman a nonuser who is mysteriously unaffected by magic due to his mutations. His friend is killed by Caiman and in a scurry to get away with his own life he uses his smoke to open a door between the realms something that takes a fair bit of skill to do as remarked by several characters later on. Wanting to avenge his comrade Fujita sets out to return to Hole heavily armed but is stopped by a messenger of En who passes on the message that hersquos been assigned to find the user who transformed Caiman into a saurian. A bit of research reveals a reptilian transformation specialist Ebisu. Fujita recalls passing her while in the Hole with his friend and so goes to find her before Caiman can kill her too. Fujitarsquos timing is just right and so he manages to save Ebisu just as shersquos stuck in the jaws of Caiman her fingers broken clean off after she attempts to use her smoke on him. Unfortunately her life comes at the price of her sanity and her face En assigns one of the higherups Noi to heal Ebisursquos face and fingers. Although physically in one piece once again Ebisu is still traumatized by the incident her personality reverted back to that of a small child and memory obliterated. Noi and Shin are sent to exterminate Caiman Fujita tagging along partially because he wants revenge partially to watch after Ebisu of whose memory everyone is waiting on to return.
