The Abyss is a dark and mysterious place connected to the Realm. Filled with dark destroyed ruins, large abyssal crystals, massive intimidating statues, and of course, home to monstrous entities such Abyssal Lords and other dark creatures, who so far appear to be quite violent and sadistic to almost anyone, possibly including each other at times, but notably those of the Eternal Pyre.

The maps Abyss, Throne, and the Abyssal Spire from the Rise of Furia event are all located in the Abyss.

Trials of the Realm Bios[]

Fields of Strife
"The Domain of the Abyssal Lord Raum. Souls suffer endless battle, only to be broken again and again by the Rage of the Abyss himself."[1]


Fields of Strife (Shadows Update)
"The Domain of the Abyssal Lord Raum. Souls suffer endless battle, only to be broken again and again by the Rage of the Abyss himself. These fields hunger for souls who have close enough to the Abyss to have crossed through it. The Hand of Justice is one who has heretofor escaped such a fate."[2]


Seas of Despair
"A grim ship sails forth on a black horizon, buffeted by waves of lost souls in anguish. The Seas of Despair belong to the Abyssal Admiral Dredge, and its cold dark depths mirror that of his own wretched heart."[3]


The Rift
"An infernal gate between the Realm and the Abyss. It first emerged from the ruins of Seris, but has since been untethered. The rift now appears throughout the realm at the behest of an unseen force.[4]

Trivia[]

  • In general, the Abyss is more likely to fully suppress, displace, or destroy the host's soul and personality in situations such as Seris, though this isn't necessarily always the case.[5]
  • While the Abyss shares some similarities with the Pyre, the two don't work exactly the same and have their individual rules for existence and where their 'champions' come from.[6]
  • Jenos initially believed the Darkness he was told of by Io was really the Abyss.
  • When asked if the Pyre is like heaven, it was described that the conflict between the Pyre and Abyss is more of a "light-vs-dark thing".
  • Dredge has the ability to summon Abyssal Echoes if needed, as shown in voice lines from said Abyssal Echoes, however, it is unknown if this ability is canon.
  • Androxus is not directly aligned with the Abyss, but is connected to it due to his curse, as revealed in Seris' spawn chatter line with him.
  • According to a loading screen tip found here, Androxus was cursed by an Abyssal Entity. It's unknown if this Entity is another champion or an unseen character.
  • Not every purple crystal is explicitly related to the Abyss, but many crystals that are related to the Abyss tend to be purple, as revealed here.
  • As revealed here, the Abyss is still around in the dark future Atlas is from.
  • The Abyss is in fact an entirely separate dimension and not in the middle of the ocean as the Realm map may imply. It was only put there so it could be represented on the map, as stated here.
  • As stated here, there are at least 3 different powers in the Abyss. It also reveals said powers may not be the best of friends.
