Legendary tells the story of Charles Deckard, an art thief who is duped into stealing Pandora’s Box. When he opens the box, he releases hordes of beasts thought to be fictional – such as werewolves and gryphons – into an unprepared modern world. A full scale war between man and myth begins, and it is quickly complicated by the actions of powerful secret societies. As the person responsible for releasing this terror, Deckard’s unwittingly become the only person capable of containing it once more and saving civilization from being destroyed by the terrifying creatures of the box.

Sealed away inside Pandora's Box are the greatest creatures of myth and lore, locked away by ancient forces to preserve humanity. There they have spent eons waiting to be freed in order to rule the world once more. When a thief named Deckard is hired to steal an ancient artifact, he unwittingly triggers a war between man and myth. Now he is the only one capable of preventing the destruction of civilization. Giant griffons rule the skies and werewolves tear at the flesh of the innocent as cities are held under siege by creatures we'd dismissed as the imaginings of our ancestors.

As the only person able to seal Pandora's Box and return the beasts to their prison, Deckard must work with a shadowy paramilitary society to save our civilization before it's torn apart by tooth and claw.
