Tower of God centers around a boy called Twenty-Fifth Bam, who has spent most of his life trapped beneath a vast and mysterious Tower, with only his close friend, Rachel, to keep him company. When Rachel enters the Tower, Bam manages to open a door into it as well, and faces challenges at each floor of this tower as he tries to find his closest companion.

“The Tower” is a mysterious structure that is completely enclosed and hosts many unique environments. It is permeated by an element called “Shinsu”, which has strange properties similar to magic in other comic universes. It is inhabited by many different intelligent species.

People residing in the tower are referred to as “Chosen Regulars” in Tower of God. The Tower is sealed from the vast, unknown “Outside” by portentous, impenetrable doors. On rare occasions, extraordinary people are able to open the doors and enter the Tower. Such people are called “Irregulars” in the webtoon, and protagonist Twenty-Fifth Baam is one of them as well as Rachel (the person Baam is following). (Wiki)
