There is an organization called the Arcana Famiglia, which protects the island of Regalo (Spanish for "present"). The Famiglia is made up of people who have made contracts with Arcana cards, and have received special abilities due to this. On his birthday celebration, the "Papa" has decided it is time for him to retire and give up his seat to a new male who has control over an Arcana. To decide who in the "family" gets this seat, he calls for a tournament, called the Arcana Duello, between Arcana-users. To the winner, he promises the "Papa" seat, a wish of the winner's choice and his daughter's hand in marriage. Refusing to accept this, Felicitá decides to fight to choose her own path, with her friends Liberta and Nova fighting for her freedom by her side.
