The Magickal Universe

Where Magick is a way of life!

Species of The Otherworlds.

In this section we examine the various 'species' (creatures and beings) which inhabit the 'Otherworlds' (amongst others Otherworlds can refer to; inter-dimensional planes, alternative realities, multiple times lines, heaven and hell...)

Now as the 'species' can vary from place to place, tradition to tradition or from ancient to modern times, in order to examine them, one needs to categorise them.

As there is no confirmed evidence for or against any of the following and much of it is in dispute, for ease of reference we have chosen to label them in the following manner.
