Before the Prologue Arc

Late Fifth and Early Sixth Centuries

800 Years before Prologue

  • Eibon's wife dies.
  • The witch Arachne Gorgon creates the first Demon Weapon, based on plans written by the Sorcerer, Eibon. The Nakatsukasa Clan is one of the first weapons that Arachne creates.
  • Arachne Gorgon convinced Eibon to collaborate with her, following the death of his wife, with a promise of opportunities to resurrect his wife.
  • Death leads the The Eight Warlords, expressing some concern at his fragment Asura's vicious attack on witches.
  • Death pursues the injured Arachne to Loew Village, where she successfully evades him by planting her soul into the Oldest Golem and dividing her body into spiders that hide throughout the world for the next 800 years. The Oldest Golem and Arachne's soul are maintained in secret by Giriko, who for the next 800 years will use his Enchanter abilities to transplant his consciousness into his descendants.
  • After Asura consumes human souls and his own weapon Vajra, Death drains the blood from his body and flays his skin to fashion into a bag to house his soul. Death then plants his soul into a spot of land in what will become the Nevada desert in the United States, to seal Asura underground but at the cost of any chance for Death to leave this land.
  • Tethered to this one part of the Nevada desert, Death founds DWMA, building the Death Weapon Meister Academy in what becomes Death City, with the purpose of training Demon Weapons to acclimate to the world and to hunt his enemies.
