Set in Celestia several years after The Guided Fate Paradox, The Awakened Fate Ultimatum follows the defeat of the powerful Satanael, and yet the war between the angels and devils wages on.
Shin Kamikaze, your average high school student, is stabbed in the heart by devils while walking home from school. Before he dies, Shin is saved by Jupiel, an angel from Celestia, who brings him to Ariael, a devil scientist, who shoves the Fate Awakening Crystal into his chest, thus making him God. He is then thrust into this conflict, and must make “Ultimate Choices” involving angel, human and devil lives — determining who will live, and who will die.
As the player guides Shin in his journey of being god, each Ultimate Choice and decision made by Shin heavily affects the story. Shin’s choices not only affect the characters he interacts with, but also the fates of those around him in Celestia. Upon undertaking his role as god, Shin is tied to two girls, Jupiel and Ariael, who familiarize him with the war in Celestia and guide him through his journey to accepting his role as god.
These two girls could not be any more different. His exclusively assigned angel, Jupiel, is a sweet, hardworking angel who loves stuffed animals. Born into a noble family, Jupiel faces the expectation to become a splendid angel like her older sister, and is tasked with training Shin how to fight.
In contrast, Ariael is not concerned with the war much, if at all. Although she is a prisoner in Celestia, she is given the freedom to act as she pleases in exchange for creating a god and researching the Fate Awakening Crystal, which is her top priority.
While both of these girls care for Shin, the way they interact with him is vastly different. Jupiel is stuck between a rock and a hard place. It is essential that Jupiel follows her sister’s orders and continues to be strong in the rough war, but she still supports Shin’s decisions whether it coincides with her sister’s orders or completely opposes them. Ariael doesn’t show her feelings as directly as Jupiel, and shows she cares in her own unique way. She often appears to only care about the crystal that she created, but she displays her concerns and always offers him instant noodles. By providing Shin with good, yet cold advice, Ariael leads him to coming up with alternative options and scenarios to the challenging choices he is forced to make throughout the game.
In the war, Shin is also challenged by Hien Inugami, a human who is similarly turned into a god. Unlike Shin, Hien’s powers are awakened in the Netherworld by the Fate Awakening Crystal and in order to become God, two souls were sacrificed. He is only focused on battle and doesn’t care about those around him or the war — only to fight the strongest angels, and he becomes excited when Shin appears. As he battles Hien, Shin is faced with the reality of his existence. In order for Shin to become God, both Jupiel and Ariael sacrificed part of their soul to save him, and as a result, his powers are draining the souls of his two guardians. Presented with this harsh reality, Shin must cope with the weight of his decisions, and must ultimately make the choice of who he will be able to save and who will die.
