“Stiles waved his hand. "You need to learn how to track by scent. This is how you start.” Still skeptical, Derek bent forward, nose close to Stiles’s hand, and breathed in deep.

There’s only one Celestia (prospit), but since demons have a tendency to no get along, they split up into different netherworlds(their respective lands), and the original netherworld(derse) is regarded as sacred to demons.
They meet in a (mostly) insignificant netherworld, Wind and Shade, and trave together in a not-at-all-romantic-journey-i-swear.
