Seven Sacred Beasts

Mattie is a summoner who can use his abilities to use monsters, sort of in a Pokemon-style way. The one thing Mattie loves above everything else is money. That’s right. He’s extremely shallow. Not much of a hero, really. He’s no interest in fame, honor or nobility, just cold hard cash. Then one day Mattie stumbles upon a woman in a den full of monsters. She promises to pay Mattie 100 million in gold (whole lot of mulah that) if he can be victorious in a tournament that will determine the greatest sorceror in the world.
