Heaven is the holy afterlife, where good and redeemed souls travel after death and penance.  It is known by many names, some for specific locations in Heaven, including Valhalla, Paradise, Tian, and Elysium.

Overview

Heaven's exact origin is unknown.  There are some who say that the gods, or one specific god, created it as a place for themselves to dwell and/or for their worshippers to travel to after they die.  Others say it was born from the Void itself as a point of good for all mortals to look up to.  What is known is that the realm of Heaven stands in opposition to Anserak.
