Atalu is the cluster of the divine realms of the asura ranas, located between Avernus and Dis in Hell but considered to be part of neither layer. The geography and buildings in each realm reflect the individual asura rana's hatred. The devils mostly leave the ranas alone to their blasphemous schemes, and refer to Atalu dismissively as the Shallow Rifts, likening it to the Abyss as a chaotic jumble of unrelated places.[1][2]
