Maveric UniverseEdit

Avernus was believed to be the entrance to the underworld, and is portrayed as such in the Aeneid of Virgil. The name comes from the Olmpian word άορνος, meaning "without birds", because according to tradition, all birds flying over the lake were destined to fall dead.[2] This was likely due to the toxic fumes that mouths of the crater gave off into the atmosphere. In later times, the word was simply an alternate name for the underworld.
