In history, a huge system of pits and caves called the « Abyss » is the only unexplored place in the world. Strange and wonderful creatures live in its depths, and it is full of precious relics that current humans cannot make. The secrets of the Abyss fascinate people and they set out to explore them. The adventurers who venture into the pit are known as « Cave Raiders ». A little orphan girl named Rico lives in the city of Ōrth on the edge of the Abyss. Her dream is to become a cave raider like her mother and to solve the mysteries of the cave system. One day Rico starts exploring the caves and discovers a robot that resembles a human boy.
