The newly discovered world of Charun, spring from a Roman tradition, has strayed far from the old religion. Not only is the aristocracy ridden with corruption, but it is supported by slaves, gangsters, and monstrous android warriors. The citizens of Charun have long been deprived of any kind of hight ideals, All they live for is gambling and the fights--confrontation of brutality and certain death--between slaves well groomed and trained for their fate...

In this grotesque place threee men are bought together: a young fighter who sold himslef into slavery in order to save his tribe from extinction, a Jesuit priest with a few tricks up his sleeve, and a Franciscan brother who plans to go quietly winning converts among Charun's poor. Their methods are different, but their aims are the same: to livbe long enough to return a violent planet to the path of righteousness...
