Fantasy Drabble #267 “The Edda of the Underworld”

The underworld is ruled by Bol, King of Death, and Jyl, Queen of Murder. Their children, the Beyelu, are the Princes of the Underworld, Awelon being the ‘Crown Prince’.

The Underworld consists of an inverted rocky plain, from which hangs mountains, and below which is the Void. The mountains are riddled with tunnels and chambers containing the dead.

The children of Awelon and Hookt, the Ahkt, administrate the Underworld, sheperding the favored dead to their eternal reward. The children of Ziklon and Yikt, however, are terrible demons which punish any dead who have offended the Immortals. They are called Zikt.
