Cursed by a witch as a child, a young duke gained the unwanted power to kill all living things he touches. Forced to move away from his family and to a large mansion deep in the woods, the Duke is treated as if he doesn’t exist and is continually shunned by his peers. However, he is not completely alone. Rob and Alice, his butler and maid, are always by his side. Alice loves to tease him, and as their relationship grows, the Duke sets out to free himself from his deadly curse. Of course, he’s going to need help, and who better to do it than the various denizens of the supernatural?
