Abridged Guide to Evil Wikia

The Hells are a dimension like Creation or Arcadia. There seems to be an infinite number of hells and they seem to be growing endlessly. The first 23 hells are inhabited by demons while the hells from the 24th on are inhabited by devils. In some or all of them the sky is crimson.

The Hells are to the left of Creation, as much as direction can be applied to them.[1][2]

One of the hells was conquered by the Dead King and named Serenity. It is inhabited by the ancestors of the few hundred servants that survived the Dead King's apotheosis.[4]
