Part of the Emptiness - an insidious phenomenon that has begun to gnaw away at the land. This region of Promyvion is connected to the Celestial Capital of Al'Taieu. After the spatial transfer, this became the Apollyon section of Limbus. This "Lower Promyvion" is an abyss inhabited by entities that became trapped in the Emptiness, including a prototype biotechnological weapon.

Apollyon looks much like Promyvion. It is presumably "Promyvion - Al'Taieu" and the place where things absorbed by the Emptiness go. Trading all four colored chips (found in all four initial areas) to either of the two Swirling Vortexes at time of entry will open access to Central Apollyon, where Proto-Omega may be fought.

Historical Background[edit]

Apollyon is the Greek word for "destroyer" & "destruction". It is a translation of Abaddon, the Hebrew word for "destruction" & "a place of destruction" (remember, New Testament was written in Greek and early Christianity flourished in Greece). In the Book of Revelations, New Testament (specifically Revelations 9:7- 9:11), Apollyon is "the angel of the bottomless pit/abyss", who leads a swarm of demons so numerous they resembled locusts in the End Times. This pit is unlocked after the 5th angel sounds its trumpet. Apollyon and his horde were the 1st of 3 woes and were supposed to harm nothing on Earth except humans who lack God's mark on their forehead. Who exactly this destroyer is isn't clear. The best theories are that it is the Beast of Revelation. Abaddon does not have a sense of personalization that Apollyon has. Apollyon was also considered a synonym for the Devil in early Christianity.
