Fafner in the Azure 2004edit

Main article: List of Fafner in the Azure characters

At the beginning of the story, much of the world has been destroyed by the Festum and the remote Japanese island of Tatsumiyajima 竜宮島, lit Dragon Palace Island has only remained unscathed by virtue of an advanced cloaking shield The island's young people continue with their daily lives unaware of these events, but after many years of peace a lone Festum discovers Tatsumiya and attacks The adults activate Tatsumiya's hidden defense systems and attempt to repel the attacker but to no avail Many of them are killed by the Festum in a process of assimilation In desperation, they order the deployment of a mecha called the Fafner Mark Elf, but its pilot is killed en route to the hangar Left with no further options, they send a young boy named Kazuki Makabe as the replacement pilot assisted by Sōshi Minashiro from within the Siegfried System

The Festum is destroyed, but with Tatsumiya Island's whereabouts exposed, the adults choose to relocate the island Production is accelerated on additional Fafner units and more children are recruited to pilot them It is also revealed that the cloaking was not meant to conceal Tatsumiya Island from only the Festum, but from the rest of humanity who would seek to use its technology in the greater war against them

A prequel to the first series Yumi Ikoma and Ryou Masaoka are children who have been selected to take part in a top secret mission, to be the pilots of the first Fafner combat units; the last chance of survival for the human race The enemy is ruthless, remorseless and is able to read the minds of humans Therefore, the details of this mission are kept a secret even from the personnel involved The young pilots must use all their courage and faith in order to survive and complete their mission or the fate of mankind would be compromised

Fafner in the Azure: Heaven and Earth 2010edit

The year is 2148 Two years after the end of the original Fafner in the Azure TV series, Tatsumiya Island and its surviving residents have returned to some semblance of recovery However, things have become desperate for our hero, Kazuki; nearly blind now, and partially crippled from his battles with the Festum two years earlier, he clings to the promise his fallen friend Sōshi made to him to return to the island and set things right again Kazuki's hopes flare when a lifeform is detected within an unmanned submarine that comes floating into Tatsumiya Bay one night, but the person aboard isn't Sōshi; it is a mysterious "boy" named Misao Kurusu who may not be entirely human, and who claims to have been sent by Sōshi With Misao's arrival, hostilities break out anew between the Human Army and the Festum, and the Fafner pilots are thrown into the most desperate battle of their lives - this time, with the fate of TWO races riding on their shoulders

Fafner in the Azure: Exodus 2015edit

2150 AD The fight against the Festum, a silicon-based alien lifeform that destroyed much of the world, enters a new phase The first Azure Operation crushed the Artic Mir, scattering its pieces around the world Soon those fragments began to act of their own volution While the majority of the Mir wage war, embracing a hatred for mankind, some of the Festum chose to co-exist with humanity There were humans who also thought it was possible Mankind and the Festum, co-existing The concept questioned the very reason for the war, giving birth to even more hatred This is no longer simply a fight between humans and the Festum

Under such circumstances, Tatsumiya Island disappeared from the front lines, going silent Through the encounter with Misao Kurusu two years ago, the island had a means to converse with the Mir It gave the island a unique capability The children of ALVIS, prepared for battle, sought a way to better understand the enemy

And now, a new chapter is about to begin on the island A girl who understands the Festum language A girl the Festum protected When the two meet, they will open the door to a new world
