Note: Due to its nature, this work contains Late-Arrival Spoilers for the entirity of Disgaea 4: A Promise Unforgotten, including the DLC and post-plot content. Proceed with caution.

Valvatorez has a problem. He has yet to fulfill The Promise he swore to Artina over four hundred years ago, and while she offered him a potential out, he refused to take it. No, until he manages to successfully scare her, he refuses to drink even a single drop of human blood...!

But how can he uphold his end of the bargain when he hardly knows her at all...? Perhaps the key lies somewhere in her past... but the search for answers may prove far more complicated than Valvatorez or anyone else anticipates.

tieflingenthusiast's all of the things we did wrong. is a Continuation of Disgaea 4 which delves into the many mysteries of the past. Who was Artina before she met Valvatorez, anyway...?

This fanfic contains examples of:

  • Adaptational Backstory Change: As a natural result of the story exploring and vastly expanding upon Artina's history.
  • Adaptational Diversity: Artina happens to be trans.
  • Brutal Honesty: Valvatorez and Fenrich tell Artina right up front exactly why they want to hear about her past.
  • For Want of a Nail: When Artina recounts to Nagi how she met her version of her, Nagi is flabbergasted to realize that she remembers the incident in question, but quite differently. The Nagi Artina met had been badly injured trying to stop a battle, while the 'present' Nagi witnessed that battle, but didn't try to intervene. The nail responsible for this seems to be whether or not she brought a gun with her.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: Played for Laughs; Nurse Matilda reconsiders the wisdom of her suggestion when Valatorez and Fenrich respond with cackling laughter.

  • Not Quite the Right Thing: Fenrich takes considerable pleasure in informing Artina that taking the first demon she met into a church likely helped kill them, as the holy ground did more harm than she could heal.
  • Not What It Looks Like: Upon barging into Valvatorez's chambers to find Fenrich and Artina there, Fuuka immediately accuses them of getting 'raunchy together', much to Nagi's dismay.
  • Orphan's Ordeal: After her mother passed away when she was four, Artina spent roughly two years or so on the streets before she was taken in by the church. She'd forgotten her name by then, and requested a new one from the woman who found her.
  • Sparing Them the Dirty Work: Fenrich offers to follow through on all of the various threats of bodily harm Valvatorez attempts to scare Artina with, and spies on her in hopes of learning her weaknesses.
  • Stating the Simple Solution: Matilda sets the plot into motion when she points out that getting to know the Angel of Avarice better would probably help him figure out what scares her the most.
  • Unusually Uninteresting Sight: Upon realizing that the armor-clad figure her companions dragged from a battlefield was not a human, but a demon, twelve-year-old Artina proceeded to focus upon treating their wounds anyway.
