Serenity is a hell or a part of the hell the Dead King conquered. The only sources of information about it as of yet are Hye Su, Malicia and Hierarch Anaxares.

The dead of Serenity always rise, as such, the realm is the Dead King's most regular source of ensouled dead.[2]

It was described as fertile land dotted with villages by Anaxares. Hye Su only saw a throne hall, while Malicia described an almost utopian society while in the form of Athal.

It was his most regular source of Binds, the ensouled undead used as officers for his armies.
