Fifteen year old princess Pacifica Casull is the most feared and hated person by the followers of the God Mauser, as the 5111th Grendel Prophecy predicts that she is the “poison that will destroy the world.” Known as the “Scrapped Princess,” she was abandoned and left to die at birth only to be saved by the commoner Casull family. Her foster siblings Shannon (brother), a swordsman, and Raquel (sister), a wizard become her protectors and leave their home to avoid being hunted down. As they travel, they encounter more and more questions than answers, regarding the catastrophe that is supposed to befall the world on Pacifica’s 16th birthday.
This series was paced very well, allowing you to enjoy each character and their unique personalities. In many cases a damsel in distress such as Pacifica should be annoying, however she doesn’t rub off that way – making her plight as a self-doubting teenager, in comparison to her much stronger and useful siblings, more relatable. I loved how the series built up to the core plot enjoyed the many plot twists. Definitely a classic during a time when fan-service was not a focus, but good story-telling was.
