Originally, Lasaland existed as a city within the Asmodean region of the Beelzenian Empire, governed by the Venomania family Duke. Afterward, it became a center of trade for the Empire, exchanging goods with the Empire and abroad in the Eastern region.
In December of EC 135, a massacre broke out within the Venomania estate with the murder of the entire family and its staff. Afterwards, the sole survivor and perpetrator of the incident, Sateriasis Venomania, was made Duke, keeping residence at the mansion. Soon after in EC 136, Duke Sateriasis began abducting numerous women from all over Asmodean to fulfill his sexual desires, sending the entire region into a panic.
During that period, Venomania was later assassinated the following year by the disguised Count Karchess Crim from the Kingdom of Marlon and the women were freed from their captivity. As a result, the royal family elevated the head of the Donald family to the position of Duke. Afterwards, the Donalds began governing the region, residing in Lasaland.
In EC 212, Duke Donald entered into a quarrel with the imperial family for their contempt for his family's weak history, ultimately severing ties with Beelzenia. After winning Asmodean's independence, the Duke crowned himself as Emperor of the new country and established Lasaland as its capital. The city's trade continued to thrive and prosper even after breaking away from its previous empire.
War with Lucifenia
During the early 470s, Asmodean was invaded by the Kingdom of Lucifenia, warring with the nation for decades in an attempt to gain more territory. In response, Asmodean recruited all willing and able soldiers. In EC 477, the Golden Dragon and Silver Sparrow unites were dispatched from the capital to reinforce the battle at the Babul Desert. Six months later, Gast Venom was tried for the alleged murder of his superior, General Shalgham. Following the trial, the warrior was exiled from Asmodean and sent out of Lasaland.
In EC 999, Lasaland was completely decimated by Punishment. Following the end of the Third Period and its subsequent merging with the Hellish Yard, the city of Lasaland was recreated by the souls in the area. The Master of the Hellish Yard later arrived and returned Sateriasis Venomania to lower hell.
The royal residence of the Asmodean Emperor. It was established after Asmodean had broken off and gained its independence from Beelzenia.
