A parallel timeline set in 1899, magic is commonly used in various industries like plantations, pharmaceuticals, military etc. However, there seems to be a "curse", under which a person who uses magic too much becomes a "demon" by some chances. To combat this, a technology called "Mold" is invented. The "curse" is reviled to be a act of terrorism, those who use magic will suddenly turn into a "demon" if their Mold suit has any deficiency(Suggested in the second OVA, in which two Mold suits are tampered with and both their users turned into demons).
