Plunderer Season 1 Plot:
The first season of ‘Plunderer’ is set in a world where every individual is identified by a number known as the “Count.” This count is a number-identity that is related to a very crucial aspect of that person’s life. For instance, for some, this number identity is simply a reflection of the number of steps they might have taken in a lifetime. If this number falls back to zero for a particular person, the person is dragged to the Abyss where he/she is forced to live in grim darkness till eternity.
The main character of the series is a young girl named Hina, who once lived in Fieni with her mother. When her mother’s count fell to zero, she saw her fall into the Abyss. But before dying, her mother asked her to find the legendary Red Baron and live with him. Before finally leaving her, her mother also gave her a Ballot. As soon as her mother passes away, Hina decides to fulfill her wishes and embarks on a journey to find the man. But after spending almost all her life being sheltered by her mother, Hina seems to be very naive about the world outside. She is easily able to trust anyone she meets along the way and has no clue about all the evils that exist out there. Also, she seems to have no knowledge of social norms she was raised without.
But despite all of these pitfalls, it is her determination that keeps her going and once she puts all of her focus onto finding the Red Baron, she does not stop. That’s when she runs into a mysterious Knight named Licht Bach one day, who seems to be extremely popular because of his low count. Something clicks between the two of them and they set out on a journey of a lifetime.
