Demon wielders use corporeal versions of demons ranging from rifles to a katana to help them in any battle. These people are part of an elite force of fighters known as the Imperial Demon Company. Most of the people who wield these weapons were child experiments, in an attempt to create a superior race of humanoid.
In the year 1996 a young man was born to a rich family, we will call him Guren. Guren was from a clan full of people who had deserted from the main clan in an attempt to overthrow the main Clan. Guren was inducted into a school ran by the main clan, there he made friends with some people from the lower clans and they became a combat squad. Until they all were murdered in an attempt to stop the apocalypse. Stricken by grief Guren delved into a forbidden magic called the Seraph of the End. Not realizing the consequences Guren went through with this program, reviving his fallen teammates and creating the apocalypse they tried so hard to stop. However with perfect timing the main clan forgave the deserters and let some of them in on a new program they had created, the Black Demon Weapons. These are the weapons that the New Imperial Demon Company wield and will eventually take back their world with.
You saw what the world was like after the apocalypse and using one of the only remaining time machines traveled back in time to (Wherever your campaign takes place)
