Iblis has two meanings in the Dictionary:


Iblis is a large island in the Sea of Farewells, west of the Urbicande peninsula. Certain rumors indicate that it might be populated entirely with Siamese twins 1), but this is perhaps only a misconception due to the fact that Pierre and Dany, of the Robertson Circus, wore that name on their shirt 2). More reliable information mention that Shipwreckers may haunt its coasts 3).


Iblis is a defunct company from our world. It produced the movie Taxandria. The word means “Devil”, in Arabic.
