Fifty years have passed since Jack arrived in the future, but he has not aged as a side effect of time travel. His sword is lost, he has given up hope of returning to his time, and he is tormented by hallucinations of his deceased parents, his kingdom, and a mysterious armored figure on horseback. Jack, now using futuristic weapons and armor, rescues a mother and her two children from several beetle drones, and wanders the land on a motorcycle. Scaramouche—a fast-talking musical assassin robot styled after Sammy Davis Jr.—has destroyed a village and killed all of its people to get Jack’s attention. Jack delays in arriving to the village, but eventually defeats Scaramouche. Meanwhile, seven young girls are raised and trained from birth by an Aku-worshiping cult led by an unnamed High Priestess to become the Daughters of Aku, a team of assassins with the sole purpose of killing Jack.
