At some point, Mystica was founded below in the arid climate of southern Asmodean and became a small town in the Beelzenian Empire. At some point, the Ferdinand family was appointed as earls to the town. In EC 126, a ten-year-old Lukana Octo told everyone in Mystica about a sudden drought she foresaw in a dream and was ignored by the townsfolk.
During that time, Elluka Clockworker visited the town to meet with Earl Ferdinand and conducted her business there before leaving. Shortly after, the town experienced a heavy drought for months. On the verge of collapse, Elluka returned and performed a ritual to bring massive rainstorm to the town, saving the inhabitants. Afterward, Lukana and Elluka became the talk of the town for the succeeding years before the rumors eventually died down.
Around late January of EC 136, the townsfolk noticed that Lukana hadn't returned from her trip to Lasaland for its New Year Festival and began to worry. As more women from the around the Asmodean region began to disappear, the town became anxious about the mysterious event and Earl Ferdinand joined in helping investigate the disappearances.
In early April, EC 136, Duke Sateriasis Venomania visited the town to conduct errands at the Misty Mountains. While there, the Duke slaughtered the entire Ferdinand household and abducted Lilien Turner from the town; with practically all of the townsfolks' memories of the Duke's visit wiped shortly after, its anxiety continued to increase by Lilien's miraculous disappearance.
Afterward, the dead earl's nephew took his uncle's place to oversee the town, moving into the massacred mansion. During the following summer, Count Karchess Crim visited the town to question the Earl about the recent deaths and abduction of Lilien Turner. He later recruited a witness of the Duke's abduction, Rajih, to help with the investigation.
Following Asmodean's independence from the Beelzenian Empire, Mystica became part of the new nation and continued to prosper as a small town. In EC 477, during Asmodean's war with the Kingdom of Lucifenia, the Golden Dragon Unit of the Asmodean army passed through the town en-route to the Babul Desert.
Ferdinand Mansion It also contained a secret room, used by the earl of the home in EC 136 to hide his collection of Maylis Beelzenia's personal belongings.
