The Shadow Palace 「影の王宮 Kage no Ōkyū」 is the magical space between the realm of the living and the realm of the dead.[1]


The Shadow Palace is a large black structure shaped like a castle. This magical space serves as a gateway from the realm of the living to the realm of the dead. It exists within Clover Castle, the capital of Clover Kingdom.[1] The internal structure of the palace is shaped like a giant sephirot, with ten spherical rooms connected by corridors. The walls and floors are made of stone blocks, and the vertical corridors have floating blocks to facilitate travel.[2] After Yuno Grinberryall's magic stone enters the palace, an eleventh room forms with the large pedestal for the stone,[3] which will complete the elves' reincarnation.[1]

The ancient elves allowed humans to safeguard the magical space, but only the ten Apostles of Sephirah can open it.[1]


  • The internal layout of the Shadow Palace, as well as the name "Sephirah" from the Apostles of Sephirah, is derived from the Sefirot in Judaism.
    • The location and position of the eleventh chamber that appears in the Shadow Palace corresponds to Da'at ("Knowledge"), representing the point where all ten Sephirot unite into one.
