As a young granddaughter, Hitomi’s grandmother gave her a necklace with a red-pink peculiar pendant that surprisingly swings at exactly a second. Growing up, she had developed a talent in tarot reading. Her visions have become more and more accurate.
Practicing with the track team one afternoon, Hitomi experienced a prelude to a great adventure. Later on, she met a young man that came out of seemingly nowhere, together with a dragon that chases her and her friends high up on a temple. After the young man finishes off the dragon, she was taken with him to a land that was like and unlike the Earth.
In Gaea, her visions are accurate and scary. But it helps her and Van Fanel survive the various attempts of the Zaibach Empire to dispose them off – especially her who is seen as threat to the well-being of the entire planet.
In their journey, they bring with them a mechanical robot called a guymelef. This guymelef is Fanelia’s treasure sought by the Zaibach Empire: the Escaflowne.
Looking for a way to go back to her own world, Hitomi learns more about the existence of the legendary city of Atlantis and how Gaea came to be as well as how her own grandmother got hold of the pendant in her necklace.
More importantly, Hitomi realized that being true to herself and a steadfast belief in the goodness of things can be very powerful – and is in fact the very source of power in the strange place with the Earth and the Moon in the sky called Gaea.
