Disgaea: Corruption of Innocence is a fan-based, alternate universe scenario by Deviantart member Sanguynn. This takes place long after the events of Disgaea 1 and following Veneficus and Tartarus, fan-made sons of Laharl, and though it existed in the works before the release of Disgaea D2, it makes many attempts to stay faithful.
Veneficus(nicknamed Adon) is under care of Vyers as a guardian due to his strange behavior - he begins to have horrible nightmares in which he is haunted by a shadowy doppelganger. After receiving a look into Adon's mind courtesy of extreme psychologist Archimedes, it's revealed that Adon's inner evil has taken on an unusual role, all because of a pact that Adon made with what turned out to be an Eldritch Abomination
. Chaos ensues.
This work blends some canon with O Cs
, though it's largely OC focused.
Being a teenager sucks.
[Disgaea Corruption of Innocence] contains examples of:
- Almighty Janitor: Mid-Boss.
- Artifact of Doom
- Badass and Child Duo: Adon and Archi.
- Blessed with Suck: Adon's magical abilities came at a far higher price than he anticipated.
- Curiosity Killed the Cast: The bad endings. All of them.
- Bureaucratically Arranged Marriage: In Helena's case. The confirmation and moving up of the wedding date was what prompted her mother to tearfully tell her to run away.
- Dark Fic
- Deal with the Devil: The origin of Adon's possession issues.
- Devil but No God
- Eldritch Abominations: The big bads here are all named "Denizens," and are akin to Eldritch monsters. Body Horror and Squick galore.
- Lovecraft Lite: Should things go down the path of least resistance.
- Kid Hero: Adon.
- Missing Mom: In Adon's case. He has no idea who his mother is.
- Tartarus has known his entire life that his mother is Etna, and both of them project Etna onto Adon as his mother until Etna explains that it isn't true.
- Modest Royalty
- Mythopoeia : Draws from the mythos of H.P. Lovecraft.
- Denizens were also inspired by Daedra in the Elder Scrolls Series.
- Nice Job Breaking It, Hero: Adon's accidental encounter with Vindaego is enough to begin the slow wearing down of the seal holding the denizens in. Though he's the one who defeats denizens, they wouldn't be wandering the overworld if it wasn't his fault (indirectly) in the first place for answering Vindaego's tempting call.
- Overlord Jr.: Tauntus aspires to be one of these, although his penchant for affection sort of ruins it.
- Really 700 Years Old: Yet not immortal. In the denizen's case, however, they've been alive as long as space has existed and are incapable of dying.
- Red Oni, Blue Oni: Tauntus and Adon.
- Sadistic Choice: Flonne's decision to make Adon a fallen angel in order to keep him together with his father and half-brother. Her other option was to keep him in Celestia with her, but he would have been as disconnected with the rest of his family and probably subject to wary angels.
- Sibling Yin-Yang: Tauntus and Adon. It's doubtful that the two could be any more different; however, instead of bringing out the best in each other, their differences tend to have the opposite effect.
- Later on they learn to work in harmony.
- Sliding Scale of Silliness Versus Seriousness: Its place on the scale constantly hops back and forth.
- Team Mom: Vyers.
- The Cat Came Back: Tauntus, who constantly shows back up for round two.
- The Problem with Fighting Death: Denizens cannot be killed. Only sealed away again.
- Time Skip: Takes place about 2,500 years in the future. Seems like a hell of a lot until you realize that the main characters of the series are around 1,300 years old.
- Void Between the Worlds: Where Denizens are native to.
- Wizards from Outer Space: ...Atropos.
