"What you truly wish to know is what lies beyond the veil of death. To know what I have seen."
The Underworld, mistakenly referred to as Hell, and also known as Purgatory, Limbo or the Broken Kingdom, is the afterlife in the Dark Universe series. It is where characters go when they die, and also where the higher deities of the universe reside.
At some point, the Underworld was created as a final resting place for the souls of those who had passed on.
All souls of deceased people and creatures go to the Underworld after they die.
While the Underworld has had no ruler before this, Set eventually came to the Underworld and took control of the afterlife. The exact circumstances of how and why Set came to take this position is currently unknown, but since then he has ruled over the Underworld with an iron fist.
The following table includes only characters who were known to be in the Underworld at some point during the series. Naturally, it can be assumed that any mortal in the Dark Universe will eventually become a resident. Note: Characters with technical matters will appear with a "*" next to their name.
