Dr. Gustav is a descendant of the famous Victor Frankenstein. Like his ancestor, Gustav succeeded to give life to one of his experiments. Rena, the daughter of Dr. Gustav, was put in charge of educating and raising the revived body. She named him Zeraf. But then Rosenberg, a lieutenant in the army, hears about the experiment and wants to use Zeraf as a weapon. He commands Rena to hand him over.
