This is a beautiful image.
It’s essentially how I picture Dark’s native reality; full of fire, smoke and dim eerie light. The ground a bed of barely contained lava flows, and the air something that no human can breathe. And yet… somehow still strangely beautiful in its own mysterious and terrifying way.
Not the Shadow Realm, but the world He lived in before He was driven out. Before He was trapped in the Manor. The place the Hellgod once belonged, once ruled.
To us, it’s Hell. But to Him, it’s Home.
