To protect her she has a team of bodyguards who are mostly ex-military. The latest recruit is Jonah, a seemingly emotionless and highly skilled child soldier who hates weapons dealers. As he follows Koko and herbodyguards he is searching for the weapons dealer responsible for the death of his family in order to exact revenge.
