Oblivion, also known as the Black Space, is an netheral dimension at the heart of darkness. This dimension is completely devoided of light and sound making the whole place both total silent and black. Whenever if there is footing in this dimension is uncertain as it is too dark to stand on.
The purpose of Oblivion is for beings who are completely forgotten. While it is said the soul is considered immortal, it can only exist if there are those remembering it. If it is not remembered at all then it doesn't exist and fade into Oblivion.
