Ever felt that you were always destined for something bigger? Well, that enigmatic feeling is the epitome of eighteen year old Dexter K. King. With a father who has mysteriously been missing for eight years and a mother barely ever seen at home, Dexter is an aspiring anomaly, yet forced to live a mundane and orthodox life thronged with attending high school classes he despises, silently observing his unrequited love from afar with no avail and no signs of progression, and practicing martial arts with a dream of using his strength to impact the world for the better and leave his legacy for history to teach the many generations to come. Suddenly, Dexter’s perception of the world as well as his perception of himself violently crumbles before him when a couple of intimidating men in expensive suits visit his home, demanding that he reveals where his mother is. What would these kinds of men want with Dexter’s mother? Well, it turns out that Dexter’s father was really the leader of a powerful and ruthless criminal gang, and after recently dying, his remaining family must also be eradicated so their secrets can continue to be concealed-as noted in their organization’s creed. So what does Dexter do to avoid the death of himself and his mother? He takes the place of his father and joins the gang of course! And thus, Dexter’s metamorphic journey into the deep abyss known as fate begins. This road into oblivion is grave, instilled with murder, grief, regret and betrayal, and yet, this path is also infused with life, love, happiness, and the truth-two sides of the same coin. Welcome to the Okami, a pack of bloodthirsty wolves that reign over the underworld with staggering authority, a merciless band of warriors that claim power as their only divine ruler, a triumphant troupe of soldiers that create an orchestra of chaos and destruction wherever they choose to roam, and the leader of them all, Dexter King.
