Los Demonios, located on the near Empire Ocean, is the most dangerous city in Empire State and home to the notorious organization, LEMONs. It is a safe haven for criminals of all kinds throughout the world to escape the crutches from the Heroes Organization—as it is too much of a hassle and dangerous to send Heroes there to clean house.
Unlike Hero City City, known for its beautiful architecture, artisanship and technological advancement, although nothing compared to Futuropolis, Los Demonios is nothing more than a city of ruin. Utilities hardly ever function in most parts of the city; many buildings are either in rubble, starting to collapsed within itself or an sanctuary for plant life to bring into existence without excessive human life interfering. The streets, highways, street lamps, parks, etc. are hardly ever up to quality with the exception of few exclusive hotspots—the city does not even have decent water system.
Surrounding the city is polluted air—from factories working on questionable materials—blocking the sun out completely. It was once a functional city after the discovering of the Californite Rush; however, LEMONs stood took over the city and changed it to a city of darkness.
The LEMONs are a group of powerful criminals that sought to wage war on the concept of Heroes, sought for a society where the strong become a significant figure over the people. For centuries, the Boss of LEMONs, known as Citrus Man, was an the strongest and most dangerous villain that ever came out of Empire State—constantly upstaging Image Man at every turn.
Despite the horrid conditions of Los Demonios, Citrus Man treats every one of his comrades as his brethren—giving them as equal respect and welcomes them with opened arms once—believing that he understands the thought of being a reject in the “norm” society. In short, the Boss became a fatherly figure to his men.
The Heroes Organization, under orders of Minute Men, allowed the existence of Los Demonios. Minute Man declared that the city is a necessary evil to control the rate of criminals; as long they don’t bring their troubles to other cities, they will turned a blind eye to their activities: most of the time anyways.
Notable Areas of Interest
The Demonic Plague, a strip club, is one of the few establishments that have running water, electricity and decent foods. Anyone with attitude can come on, relax, drink as much alcoholic beverages to one’s desires and watch plentiful of entertainment. At the end of the establishment, there is a man, known as The Big Trader, who will trade valuable items in exchange for anything, including top-secret information.
The Fallen Highway 210 was once a highway that connect most of Empire State centuries ago, but ever since the arrival of Los Demonios, the Highway became a shell of its former self. Anyone who ventures out on the collapsed highway cited that mysterious cries of the dead from the distance—ghosts killed in car collisions. Punk Kids often used the highway as a way to blow off steam or bully animals as a testament of their evilness.
The Punk Star Club is an exclusive club that want to follow the Punk Lifestyle which includes being tough, dressing in all black, colorful hair and constantly being angry at the world that rejects them. In truth, the club absolutely serves no purpose and simply an outlet for trouble teens to get together and find comfort in a social group.
Evil Bear Idol Café is the other famous hotspot with decent electricity and running water. One of the surprising thing about Los Demonios is that most of the residents are fans of the Idol world—becoming massive fans to their music, the dances and of course, the idols themselves. Although there are no official concerts from any official idols group aside from the in-house groups developed in the city, merchandises constantly flowed in the city—illegally. The café serves delicious evil donuts, coffees and sugary candies. During dinner, they offered meals such as burgers, pizza and other meats and vegetables—although they are not on part with other cities, it is decent enough for consumption and satisfaction.
El Vórtice, also known as The Vortex, this seemingly old and graffiti-filled building is one of the most well-known nightclub Los Demonios can provide. Despite the look on the outside, the interior is well cared-for and decorated nicely. The nightclub, which is owned by Mrs. Franco (a.k.a The Mistress), is the typical hang out place for some of the most dangerous criminals in the city. El Vórtice is the liveliest between 6 pm and 5 am, when the light-show starts. However, the reason it is famous among the criminals of the city is the subterranean area.
The main headquarters of LEMONs organization is a singular tall building may of pure Californite. Despite the collapsing of buildings throughout the city, this building was the only thing that managed to survive the ruin throughout the centuries. If one were to speak to the literal Boss of LEMONs, this is the place to find him. It is heavily guarded and requires a password that often changes every week or so—which can be obtained by talking with the Big Trader of the Demonic Plague.
