This section requires expansion.
In a bid to create the perfect warrior, the Doress foundation implants an experimental parasite called Baoh into a boy named Ikuro Hashizawa. However, Ikuro escapes due to the interference of a little girl with precognitive powers called Sumire. Afraid the Baoh parasite will be discovered by others, the Foundation sends leagues of assassins to kill the boy. Luckily for Ikuro, the Baoh creature becomes active, transforming him and giving him amazing powers that he uses to fight off his attackers as the organization gets increasingly desperate in their aim to kill him.
