"Monogatari wa Sude ni Kami to Akuma no te o Hanarete Hitori Aruki"
— MA in Capriccio Farce
The Evillious Chronicles is a complex chronology created by Mothy, which connects all of the series and most of the songs created by him in one timeline which lasts at least 1000 years.
The history takes place in six countries (one being an empire) that conform the fictional region denominated Evillious and talks about the events after Eve's actions that tainted the world with the crime, unleashing the Seven Deadly Sins.
Most of this series is centered in the Seven Deadly Sins, the consequences and events triggered by them, and the different groups and people who are searching for them.
The Seven Deadly Sins
The main motive and force behind the plot of the Evillious Chronicles. They were created from the division of Eve Moonlit's Original Sin into seven pieces. These pieces, being initially the Millennium Tree Forest elements, eventually change throughout the whole storyline, lasting for a thousand years.
Sometime later, those pieces were stored in different objects denominated the Vessels of the Sins. Those objects were personal items that once belonged to the protagonists' of the Seven Deadly Sins series. They probably had some influence on their owners, driving them to commit their crimes.
Near the end of the timeline, the Vessels of the Sins changed shape again and were "awoken" in the image of their previous owners (therefore achieving a human-like form). Actually, only four Vessels of the Sins are awake (Gula, Superbia, Acedia and Avaritia), while the two that continue to sleep (Luxuria and Invidia) have been replaced by live persons who have some connection with the respective Sin. The last Deadly Sin, the Wrath (Ira) continues to be missing and elusive.
It's unknown what will happen when all the Seven Deadly Sins are reunited. While some characters like Gallerian Marlon and Elluka Clockworker (MA) suggest that Utopia will be created, other characters like Gear and Gammon Octo suggest there will be nothing, implying some sort of catastrophe or Apocalypse.

Basic Chronology - The Involved Series
As Mothy published new songs, it revealed several series. In the beginning, it was believed that they weren't related, but the release of later songs made it evident that the songs were connected in a more complex storyline. The next list shows the different series by Mothy, arranged in chronological order:
Original Sin Series
The prologue for The Evillious Chronicles Series.
- Project 「MA」
- Escape of the Witch Salmhofer
- moonlit bear
- "MA" Survival ~Who Will Survive~
- Whereabouts of the Miracle ~CATASTROPHE~

- Main article and more detailed information: Original Sin series
Seven Deadly Sins Series

Main article and more detailed information: Seven Deadly Sins
Story of Evil
The first and most famous series created by Mothy, it was the one that launched him to fame and gave him his producer name: Akuno-P. This is also the third part of the Seven Deadly Sins Series representing Vanity. He didn't get many fans from "Daughter of Evil" until he released the second song, "Servant of Evil", which made him famous.
- Twiright Prank
- Daughter of Evil (the negative connotation of Pride, called Vanity)
- Servant of Evil (the positive connotation of Pride, but in excessive amount)
- Regret Message
- Daughter of White
- Wooden Girl ~Thousand Year Wiegenlied~
- Sound of Clocktower Needle (Handbeat Clocktower)
- Main article and detailed information: Story of Evil
Clockwork Lullaby Series
These songs are the glue that holds the series together. They contain the line, "Lu Li La" ("Ru Ri Ra") sung in different tunes, except for Clockwork Lullaby 0. Unlike the Seven Deadly Sin Series, the Clockwork Lullaby Series isn't in chronological order according to the timeline of the Evillious Chronicles.
- Clockwork Lullaby 0 (Kotoba Asobi)
- Clockwork Lullaby 1 (The Clockwork's Lullaby)
- Clockwork Lullaby 2 (Miniature Garden Girl)
- Clockwork Lullaby 3 (Re_birthday)
- Clockwork Lullaby 4 (Heartbeat Clocktower)
- Clockwork Lullaby 5 (Chrono Story)
- Clockwork Lullaby 6 (Capriccio Farce)
Main article and detailed information: Clockwork Lullaby
The End of the Four
This series isn't very famous due to all the songs being album exclusives.
- Master of the Graveyard
- Master of the Court
- Master of the Hellish Yard?
- Master of the Heavenly Yard?
Due to the ambiguous links among some songs, and the out of order publication of the songs, many fans of mothy have fought over what songs are canon and what songs are not.
The following songs are not part of the Evillious Chronicles according to current information.
- Me and the Frog's Love Romance
- 10-Minute's Love
- To Reticent You (seems to be related to 10-Minute's Love)
- Flame of Yellow Phosphorus (based on The Little Match Girl tale)
- Screws, Clockworks, and Pride
- Wendy (based on Peter Pan's tale)
- Desert Bluebird (Set in Lucifenia, a country in established chronology, but in an AU according mothy)
- Kept Waiting for a Response (Dead plot point from Story of Evil series)
Debateably Canon and Unknown
The following songs can be considered either part of it or not according to personal interpretation. Other songs in this section have simply not been translated.
- Welcome to the Forest (instrumental)
- Five Minutes Before the Trial (instrumental)
- Prophet Merry-go-Round (instrumental)
- South North Story
- Full Moon Laboratory (seems to be related to Project Ma)
- Madam Merry-Go-Round (Utopia and Shadow Parade mentioned, ties into Red Shoe Parade)
- Red Shoe Parade (connection to above song through Shadow Parade)
Heavily Hinted to be Canon
The following songs are heavily hinted to be part of the series, but without a date in the video descriptions (or no video at all).
- master of the graveyard (Graveyard Party)
- master of the court (Successor of the court)
- Retrospective Musicbox (set in the Original Sin Story, is officially canon but has no PV yet)
- Lu li la, Lu li la: The Resounding Song (called "Bonus Track" on the Evils Kingdom CD and mentions the transition of the pieces of the seven sins into their respective vessels)
The following are confirmed to be part of the series. The songs:
- Original Sin Story
- Story of Evil
- Seven Deadly Sins
- Clockwork Lullaby
- The Fifth: Pierrot (contains "Hansel" from Abandoned on a Moonlit Night and Elluka Clockworker from Chrono Story)
- The Last Revolver (contains "Gumillia" from the Story of Evil)
- Flower of the Plateau (features "Mikulia Greonio" from Madness of Duke Venomania)
- Blood-Stained Switch (features "Hereditary Evil Raiser syndrome", a recurrent element within the series)
The Chronology in Years
At some point in mid-2011, mothy edited his descriptions on some of his videos to include year numbers, all of which follow established chronology. EC, the abbreviation that precedes the numbers, stands for Evillious Chronicles. The songs included in Evils Kingdom follow this order (with some exceptions). Bold numbers/songs are currently only mentioned in the Evillious Chronicles document. Underlined numbers are theoretical placements of ambiguous songs, whether ambiguous in placement or canonicity.
- Project [Ma]
- Escape of the Witch Salmhofer
001 moonlit bear
013 Recollective Music Box
014 Abandoned on a Moonit Night
015 Chrono Story
136 Duke Venomania's Madness
141 Flower of the Plateau
325 Evil Food Eater Conchita
491 TwiRight Prank
500 The Daughter of Evil
500 The Servant of Evil
499-500 Wooden Girl ~Thousand Year Wiegenlied~
501 Regret Message
499-501 Daughter of White
505 Handbeat Clocktower
609 Girft From the Princess Who Brought Sleep
610 Five The Pierrot
610 The Last Revolver
842 The Tailor Shop at Enbizaka
983 Miniature Garden Girl
983 Judgment of Corruption
990 Heartbeat Clocktower
990 master of the graveyard
990 master of the court
998 Capriccio Farce
The following songs had ??? rather than a number. Note that Regret Message should have a set number (about 501) because it has a known placement in the series. It seems that mothy still wants to keep interpretations open at this point as to when it happens.
The thing that probably confuses newcomers to the series is that the same vocaloid can play different parts. This is why the twins from the Original sin series are not the same as the twins from the Story of Evil. Even though they look the same to us, they are different people. The Official Character List has changed since it was posted according to mothy.

This is the Geography of the Region of Evillious, in the Continent of Bolganio. There are six countries and one empire. The Empire, Belzenia, lost territory before Daughter of Evil and four of the countries still exist by the time of the founding of the U.S.E.
Also known as the "Yellow Kingdom" or "Yellow Country", and placed to the South of Elphegort. This country is inspired by France and associated with the name of Lucifer, the Patron Demon of the Pride (in both its positive and negative connotation, the latter is called Vanity).
This country was once part of Belzenia Empire until it won its independence in EC 399. After that it formed its own monarchy which lasted until the overthrowing of Riliane during the Lucifenian Revolution, around E.C. 500. After that it was incorporated as part of Marlon, and later incorporated into the Federal State of U.S.E. in EC 878.
Capital City of Lucifenia.
A forest between Lucifenia and Elphegort, connecting it to Held's Forest. Long ago Lucifenia's army tried to use it as a route in order to conquer Elphegort, however this forest was known to be tricky and most likely to get lost, therefore it was discarded since it represented a tactical disadvantage.
Princess Riliane ordered to attack Elphegort using this forest as a direct path. In result, half of it was burnt down during the "Green Hunting".
Blue Bird's Desert
If the events of Desert Blue Bird are canon, this should house the Bluebird's Desert, sometime in the future.
Lemy's home. He commited mass murder and became know as Lemy the Ripper by the city folks.
Also known as the "Green Kingdom", this country is the most important in the series, where the whole story starts and finally ends. Based on Germany and associated with Belphegor, the Patron Demon of the Sloth, this country places a central role.
Because of the events in Levianta in EC 013, Elphegort suffered famine, epidemics, and disease. In year EC 500 the kingdom suffered a surprise attack by Lucifenia, also known as the "Green Hunting", on the capital city of Aceid. In EC 878 it was incorporated into the Federal State of U.S.E.
A deep forest in the middle of Elphegort which is guarded by an ancient sentient tree called Held (also known as the Millenary tree). This place is where the whole story starts with the events of the Original Sin Series, when Eve Moonlit's actions tainted the world with the Sin unleashing the Seven Deadly Sins.
The Held's Tree is the place where Elluka started her quest. It's also where Clarith met Michaela and where Elluka chose Gumillia as her apprentice.
Near the end of the series this was the place chosen by Gallerian Marlon to build his theater. With the awakening of the Vessels of the Sins, the forest transformed into a cursed place, where nobody who goes in will come back.
In the end this is the place where all the Deadly Sins will meet again, bringing the Epilogue for the series. Whether this will end with the realization of a Utopia or an imminent end, continues to be a mystery.
- There is a battle in EC 611 involving the Freesis Foundation and Pere Noel according to mothy. Gretel is told to meet Julia and Iriina (Elluka) there at the end of Gobanme no Pierrot.
- Home to Margarita Blankenheim.
- Lied in a state of ruin after GIFT From the Princess who Brought Sleep.
- Capital city of Elphegort.

Located to the West of Lucifenia as an island nation, this country is inspired by England, and associated with the name of Mammon, the Patron Demon of the Greed.
Not much is known about this country prior the Lucifenian Revolution, although the Marlon Kingdom started its military occupation on Lucifenia in EC 501. It was later incorporated into the Federal State of U.S.E.
It must be noted that Marlon is the only country in which a Deadly Sin does not take place so far.
- Home to the Marlon Royal family.
Known as the only empire in the Bolganio continent, located at the South south-east of Lucifenia, this country is inspired by Ancient Rome, and associated with the name of Beelzebub, the Patron Demon of the Gluttony.
It is unknown when it was formed although it once covered most of the region, but Asmodean won its independence in EC 212 and lost territory from Lucifenia between EC 480 and 490. Also its status is unknown after the formation of the U.S.E. in EC 878.
- Lead by Ma in EC 325.
- Home to Banica Conchita.
Originally known as a kingdom, it is located to the North of Elphegort. This country is inspired by Russia and associated with the name of Leviathan, the Patron Demon of Envy.
A once proud and strong country, which became reduced to ashes when Kiril Clockworker in an attempt to ressurect his fiance Elluka Chirclatia, destroyed it by placing her corpse in the arc and unintenionaly, blowing it up. In EC 301 the country (once lead by Ma) went under national construction. The country was later incorporated into the Federal State of U.S.E. in EC 878.
- Home to Maria Moonlit and original home of Adam Moonlit
A country in Bolganio's eastern region. This country is based of Japan and it's name is probably a nod to Levianthan as it has many time been depicted as a large sea serpent.
- Home to Kayo Sudou, who commited mass murder in EC 842.
Located to the East of Lucifenia, this country is inspired by Great Britain, and associated with the name of Asmodeus, the Patron Demon of the Lust.
This country was once part of Belzenia Empire until it won its independence in EC 212. In EC 136 many women went missing which became an international issue, even towards the royal women in the neighboring countries. This event was called the "Venomania Event" since it was discovered to be the Duke Sateriajis Venomania's doing.
- In state of decay during Daughter of Evil.
- Home to Duke Venomania and Gumina Glassred.
- Original abode of the Asmodean Company, as lead by Gast Venom.
Union State of Evillious (U.S.E.)
Based in the European Union, it was formed in EC 878 after the signing of the Aishikeru Treaty and it incorporates the countries of Marlon, Levianta, Lucifenia and Elphegort.
- Home to Gallerian Marlon (in Levianta).
A small movie theater in the middle of the Held's Forest, built by Gallerian Marlon with the help of MA. This place is where Gallerian began to recollect the Vessels of the Sins.
After his demise the Vessels wake up, taking human shape, and acquire the physical appearance of its previous owners. The Awakened Vessels began to lead the theater, transforming the forest into a cursed place without return. Due to the uncountable victims at the hands of the Theater's inhabitants, a graveyard was built around it, which houses the remains of the unlucky visitors.
In this theater the songs Heartbeat Clocktower, Cappricio Farce, Master of the Court, Master of the Graveyard and Re_birthday take place.
