Trundling, mashing, mincing, crushing, grinding, blasting, biting! Hear their peeling thunder, their roaring flames, their clicking, whirring, metallic melody, and know that the hellfire engines of Avernus are on the move!
Edict in Elturel

Avernus is the first layer of the Nine Hells, in both the setting of Baldur's Gate 3, as well as the Forgotten Realms universe the game sources its setting from. It is ruled by Archduke Zariel. Avernus has been the primary battleground of the Blood War, the war between the Demons of the Abyss, and the Devils of the Nine Hells.

During the Prologue sequence of Baldur's Gate 3, the player technically starts the game in Avernus because by the time the player awakes, the Nautiloid ship they are on is travelling through that plane. Parts of the Avernus landscape can be seen through specific "openings" in the ship walls.
