Hel is the planet on which the demons live on.


According to Aidas, one of the princes of Hel, it is another planet. Apparently there used to be an open rift between Hel and Midgard which was closed. Luna’s Horn could be what allows these rifts to open. Aidas is called the Prince of the Chasm. There are seven levels of Hel, which are described to darker than the last: the Hollow, the Trench, the Canyon, the Ravinve. The fifth level is called The Chasm. The sixth level holds the Prince of the Abyss, and the seventh level holds the Prince of the Pit or the Star-Eater. The Prince of the Pit is so scary his name is not said by anyone on the Midgard side of the rift between the two worlds. The Northern Rift is what opens to Hel, but the Northern Rift also opens to other planets. Fae and shifters came from other worlds through the rift. Angels like Hunt were created by the Asteri on Midgard.

Notable residents


  • In Norse mythology, Hel, the location, shares a name with Hel, a being who rules over the location. In late Icelandic sources, varying descriptions of Hel are given and various figures are described as being buried with items that will facilitate their journey to Hel after their death. In the Poetic Edda, Brynhildr's trip to Hel after her death is described and Odin, while alive, also visits Hel upon his horse Sleipnir. In Snorri Sturluson's Prose Edda, Baldr goes to Hel on his death and subsequently Hermóðr uses Sleipnir to attempt to retrieve him. [1]
