The Evillious War refers to the conflict between the different Evillious nations during the EC 980s. Resulting from the murder of the imperial prince of Asmodean, the entirety of Evillious eventually became entrenched in the conflict.
Around the 10th century EC, a zombie epidemic broke out in Evillious, with Lucifenia becoming the epidemic's greatest victim. In January of EC 982, Asmodean, Beelzenia and Levianta sought an alliance with Elphegort to check on Lucifenia, although ostensibly entering the alliance to boost their power against the zombie epidemic. Around the same time, civil unrest occurred in Lucifenia due to said epidemic, with the populace calling for the USE to invade Beelzenia due to the rumor that the epidemic's culprit was there.
In response, Beelzenia requested help from Asmodean, which in turn requested help from Elphegort. Afterwards, the USE consented to the alliances in order to avoid war, although resulting in further outrage from the Lucifenian populace. In April of that same year, Asmodean's imperial prince was murdered while on a trip to Aceid. After the culprit, Heleus Gone, was given a reduced sentence by the Dark Star Court Director Gallerian Marlon, both Asmodean and Elphegort's Tasan Party objected to the decision.
Later that year in September, Asmodean declared war on Lucifenia. As a result, Lucifenia called for help from Levianta and Elphegort, with Levianta declaring war on Asmodean and Elphegort ignoring the request. Marlon then attempted to find a diplomatic solution to the conflict, with the USE's combined government failing to act due to its constituent countries' disagreement. In November, Marlon began participating in the war as well. In response, Beelzenia declared war on Lucifenia, Marlon and Levianta, causing the war to spread all across Evillious.
In February of the following year, General Tony Ausdin enacted a massacre on the inhabitants of Zenosai village. Levianta's anti-war movement then had newspapers cover Tony's massacre, backed by the Tasan Party. After Tony was declared innocent by Gallerian, the Tasan Party attempted to have the judge prosecuted, although the World Police was unable to act. The Tasan Party then leaked evidence of Gallerian's corruption to the press, causing the populace to revolt and the Leviantan Civil War to break out in Alicegrad. Around six months later, the conflict drew to a close, with the USE's unified government collapsing as a result of the war.
As a result of the zombie epidemic, Levianta, Asmodean and Beelzenia were wary of Lucifenia. Meanwhile, the Lucifenian populace grew suspicious of Beelzenia due to the rumor of the epidemic's culprit being there. After the USE consented to Elphegort forming alliances with Levianta, Asmodean and Beelzenia, the Lucifenian populace became even more enraged. Asmodean was similarly outraged at the reduced sentence given to the murderer of its prince; the Tasan Party also voiced its criticisms of the Dark Star Bureau. After its outbreak, the worldwide war was largely seen as negative, with Levianta's anti-war movement opposing the massacre of Zenosai village. As a result of the populace's indignation the war, revolts against government corruption also broke out in Levianta, plunging it into civil war.
