Delaware is a state located in the Mid-Atlantic and/or Northeastern regions of the United States. It is bordered to the south and west by Maryland, to the northeast by New Jersey, and to the north by Pennsylvania. The state takes its name from Thomas West, third Baron De La Warr, an English nobleman and Virginia's first colonial governor.

Delaware is in the northeastern portion of the Delmarva Peninsula and is the second smallest, the sixth least populous, but the sixth most densely populated of the 50 United States. Delaware is divided into three counties, the lowest number of counties of any state. From north to south, the three counties are New Castle, Kent, and Sussex. While the southern two counties have historically been predominantly agricultural, New Castle County has been more industrialized.


Early HistoryEdit

Before its coastline was explored by Europeans in the 16th century, Delaware was inhabited by several groups of Native Americans, including the Lenape in the north and Nanticoke in the south. It was initially colonized by Dutch traders at Zwaanendael, near the present town of Lewes, in 1631. Delaware was one of the 13 colonies participating in the American Revolution. On 7 December, 1787, Delaware became the first state to ratify the Constitution of the United States, thereby becoming known as The First State.


In 1981, NoHead Grandmaster Mr. Demonic NoHead returned to Newark, where he set up a small camp for himself and his apprentice Mr. Ghastly NoHead. The accommodations were meager, but sufficient enough to serve as both a training ground for Ghastly, and a base of operations for Demonic, as well as a home of sorts for both. The two eventually abandoned the camp for more luxurious locales. Traveling the world together, the Dark side would again draw them to Delaware, though not as Master and apprentice. Ghastly lured his teacher to the city and challenged him to a duel, one that he was sure he would win. Drawing on all his dark side energy, he ravaged Demonic's body as he attacked him. As the battle neared to a close, Demonic's attempt to possess the man backfired; destroying his body and leaving Ghastly victorious.
