Siruki Castle

At the center of the story is a beautiful red-haired girl named Gisela Compoleti, whom all the heroes fell in love with, but she only reciprocated.

Many people say they saw Gisela's ghost in the castle jumping into the depths again and again with a white dress, bright red hair, and they even heard Gisela's screams near the ruins.
