The Void
Type Unknown

The Void (also called the Darkness) is the name applied to the dimensions outside of the known realms (e.g. Aetherius, Oblivion, and Mundus) of the Aurbis.[1][2][3] It is also occasionally used in a more limited capacity to refer directly to Oblivion.[4] The brothers Anu and Padomay came from the Void, as well as Sithis, who originally caused change in the world.[1] According to the Dark Brotherhood, when Sithis wishes someone killed, their soul comes here after death.[5] Legends say that deities wishing to create a new plane of existence must initially create a space for it in the Void.[6] The "Second Void" and the "Nineteen Voids" are unknown terms which may be related to this dimension.[UOL 1]
