Five years ago the womanizing chairman of the Inubushi group, Tsunechika Inubushi, had died of terminal cancer. Due to his past habits, several people appeared, claiming to be related to Inubushi by presenting a picture of their mother with the president. Without the president or their mothers to confirm whether the claims were true or not, it became impossible to confirm or deny the claims. Regardless, the president's wife took in all eight people as her own adopted children. And now, with the president's wife ill herself, the inheritance was to be divided amongst the eight children.
However, two out of eight had died in strange ways. One had died falling from the cliff, claiming that a fiery monster had assaulted him prior to the fall. Another had been assaulted by a dog on fire.
