Plot Concept: The story follows a group of psychic individuals that have the ability to telepathically infiltrate the minds of other people and to manipulate their memories. This ability is often used for shady business, such as hiding the evidence of crimes such as assassination, and it corrupts the hearts of those who wield it. The people who practice this fearful ability are known as “pets”, a term of loathing and contempt.
