For his latest assignment, which might be his greatest mission yet, he is assigned to infiltrate the home office of one of the most powerful political figures in the world.
For this mission, he is tasked with finding a family and getting his kid to be admitted to a prestigious school and excel in studies that will lead to a party in the political head’s house.
In his pursuit of forming a fake family, he finds Yor, a daytime clerk and a nighttime assassin who also wants a cover-up family for her assassin duties. And they adopt a little girl, Anya from an orphanage who has telekinetic powers.
So with all the pieces set in place, Loid, Twilight’s husband name trains his adopted daughter, Anya to become the best student in the class as well as become friends with the political head’s son in the school.
While Loid and Yor play the part of the supporting parents to get their image in the school’s eyes to gain more points in Anya’s favor.
