Babel or Babilim is one of the worlds that are participating in The Game. It is based on Babylonian and Mesopotamian mythology and is named after the Hebrew name of the city of Babylon.
The exiled soul of Babel is Tiamat.
According to Marduk, the world of Babel was formed from the remain of the dragoness Tiamat, a culmination of many dragons representing the force of destruction and chaos and was also his ancestor, following her defeat at his hands. Marduk used Tiamat's body to create heavens, earth, and all manner of things, including his aide Mushussu, and used the flesh and blood of Tiamat's child Kingu to create what would later become humanity of the world.
The world of Babel also once had a structure called "Hanging Gardens of Babylon", a mystical paradise among the clouds that became the basis for many other worlds' hierarchical concept of heavens that exist above earth. However, the Gardens vanished without a trace one day, with nothing being recorded regarding its disappearance.
