Summary for SPY x FAMILY

Known as "Twilight", no job is too high for the agent when it comes to peace. As the master spy of Westalis, Twilight works tirelessly to prevent extremists from unleashing a war with neighboring Ostania. For his latest mission, he must investigate Ostanian politician Donovan Desmond by infiltrating his son's school, the prestigious Eden Academy.

As a wife, she meets Yor Briar, a absent-minded office worker who needs a fake partner to impress her friends. However, Loid is not the only one with a hidden nature. Yor is actually the deadly assassin "Thorn Princess" and for her, marrying Loid is the perfect cover.
