The story of a young, ruthless arms dealer and her new guard, an estranged child soldier.

Overview

A young woman named Koko Hekmatyar is an heir to an innocuous shipping company called H&C Logistics Incorporated. One of its businesses just happens to be transporting both legal and illegal weaponry to various parts of Europe and Africa and selling them to any person or faction willing to pony up the cash regardless of race, religion or politics. Koko has been making a killing (literally and figuratively) selling weapons around the globe and fighting off rivals and enemies who get in her way with a small team of hardened mercenaries in tow, all for her contradictory goal of "world peace."

The story begins with Koko introducing her latest recruit: a boy named Jonah who used to be a child soldier and carries with him a hatred for weapons and anyone who carries or uses them. However, he possesses incredible aptitude for combat, and Koko makes use of his abilities to the fullest by throwing him into life-or-death situations as she makes fun of his paradoxical mindset: Hating weapons but being forced to use them in order to survive.
