The Mahavansa, the ancient historical record of Sri Lanka, describes King Kasyapa as the son of King Dhatusena.
Kasyapa murdered his father by walling him alive and then usurping the throne which rightfully belonged to his brother Mogallana, Dhatusena's son by the true queen.
Knowing the inevitable return of Mogallana, Kasyapa is said to have built his palace on the summit of Sigiriya as a fortress and pleasure palace.

  Holy Mountain's History of Lion Rock
Kasyapa's action was prompted by the fear that his younger half-brother Mogallan, who was born of the anointed queen, would take over the throne.
Kasyapa was convinced that his father was hiding a cache of treasure from him, and demanded that the King reveal where this wealth was hidden.
Paranoia, arrogance and delusions of divinity drove Kasyapa to leave the traditional Sinhalese capital of Anuradhapura and construct his palace on the peak of Sigiriya Rock, a perfect lookout which could be easily defended; a huge lion was carved out of the rock.

They were Kasyapa, his eldest son by a lesser queen, his second son Moggallana by his anointed queen and Migara son of the King's sister, who was the Chief of the Army and to whom the king's only daughter Anudhi was married.
Kasyapa then asked the father whether the treasure was hidden at the bed of the reservoirs when Migara, who stood by whispered to Kasyapa that the king was cheating him in order to save the wealth for his son Moggallana.
While Kasyapa was guilty of patricide his father Datusena was guilty of two heinous crimes that of burying the hermit in the Kalawewa bund and burning his own sister disgracefully at the stake.

Dhatusena had two sons, Kassapa (Kasyapa), by a mother of unequal birth, and the mighty Mugalan, by a mother of equal caste, and also a charming daughter, who was dear to him as his life.
Now Kasyapa thought, "If he captures me he'll kill me or if not I'll be killed by an assassin." So it is said that he severed his head with his own sword and fell down.
Geiger notes: "According to Chinese sources another embassy came from Ceylon to China, sent by King Kia-che, i.e., Kasyapa, in the year 527 A.D." Geiger says that "it is impossible that this could be Kassapa I," because according to him Kasyapa reigned in 478-96 CE (473-91 according to the University of Ceylon History).
