Location Details





Located somewhere in Sector 2814, the planet Ysmault was once the throneworld of the foul Empire of Tears, a galactic empire ruled by demons. The Empire was battled by the ancient Maltusians, precursors of the Guardians of the Universe, in their efforts to contain the wild magic of the universe. After the Empire's defeat, all its members were imprisoned on Ysmault, and access to the planet was restricted by the Guardians.

During his career, Green Lantern Corps member Abin Sur was forced to violate that ban to save the passengers of a crashed spacecraft. While there, he made the mistake of speaking to Qull of the Five Inversions, who set him on the path to his eventual death by answering a question about Sur's future. Sur later would demand more information from another Inversion, Atrocitus, who held crucial information divined through blood rituals related to the Blackest Night.

Later, Sur took Atrocitus to Earth; Sur perished in this mission and it was Sinestro and Hal Jordan who brought back Atrocitus to Ysmault. Atrocitus, at one point, would brutally kill the remainder of the Five Inversions and use their blood to power a massive Red Lantern Power Battery, and forging red rings out of the crystallized blood, forming the start of the Red Lantern Corps, the rebirth of the Empire of Tears. Ysmault since has served as the Corps' homeworld.
