Mictlan was the extra-dimensional home of the Celestis, who created it after their migration from the Homeworld. It served as a metaphysical bomb shelter removed from spacetime. It made its occupants immune to time winds or changes imposed on Gallifrey's past. (PROSE: The Taking of Planet 5) The appearance of this realm varied with the perceptions of its inhabitants. (PROSE: Alien Bodies) It was created by the use of block-transfer engines and computational matrices which also linked all the Lord Celestials who made up the Last Parliament.
The Celestis took those close to death to Mictlan. (PROSE: Autumn Mist) As a result, many viewed it as a form of hell. (PROSE: The Book of the War) The Bone Museum of Mictlan served as a library for agents of the Celestis. It held information on the Doctor. In addition, the Plain of Bones was located in this realm.
