Radiant Spoilers:

The main character of ‘Radiant’ is a young boy named Seth. Two white horns protrude out of his skull indicating that he is infected, and is a sorcerer. He is extremely reckless, foolish at times, and always stays in his own imaginary world. Because of his sheltered upbringing as child, he used to be quite naive about the world around him. There was a time when he was so ignorant that he ended up attacking a cow, assuming that it is a monster of some sort. Even after he grows up, nothing about him really changes and his ignorance of the world around him reaches a point where even his own guardians start despising him.

Adding to this, the fact that he lives in a world where Sorcerers like him are often persecuted makes things even worse for him. Despite all of his gimmicks of foolishness, it’s his strong sense of justice that makes him stand out. While most other people live in the fear of monstrous beings—called Nemesis—that fall out of the sky, Seth desires to destroy them.

As anticipated, the Nemesis start falling out of the sky one day and raise havoc in Seth’s village. And anyone who even dares to come in contact with these ghastly beings either ends up dying or gets gravely injured. Seth sees this as an opportunity to prove his worth and realizes that he is the only one who can save his village. To end this war between humans and the Nemesis, he sets out on a journey to destroy the very source of the Nemesis—the mythical Radiant. This grand adventure not only allows him to learn a lot more about his own magical abilities but also helps him bring about a world where sorcerers like him are more acceptable.
