Meteor City is where anything can be gotten rid of, from weapons to corpses and newborn babies. No information about the people from this city appears in any official records, including even the world's demographic database, therefore the Mafia Community has been employing its inhabitants for criminal activities. The people here have a strong tie to each other and extreme ways of thinking about reciprocity and justice. Because they accept anything that the the rest of the world throw away, they do not allow anything to be taken back from them. 7 years prior to the beginning of the main story, in order to avenge a mere tramp who was wrongly sentenced for murder, 31 people from the city committed suicide bombing to kill the 31 inspectors, judges, jurors, police officers and witnesses involved in the false accusation against the tramp.
