It is a trio of sky bandits consisting Ace, Claude and the evil leader Rouge, worked for weapons maker known as Baxter Company and have a plan to acquire Atlar's Magic Mirror, a legendary treasure that makes any wish to come true if anyone gets it. When they're looking for a mirror, in order to hide their identity, they are also referred to as "The Trump Trio".
