Realm of the afterlife, named after its ruler the Lord of the Dead, King of Shades & primordial God of the Underworld, funeral rites, necromancy, ghosts, curses, dreams and relative balance. As it is forbidden to leave the domain, its gates are guarded by Kerberos - a monstrous multi-headed hellhound - to prevent the shades of the dead from leaving and cheating death or the living from entering and stealing souls.
