Therea is a mystic realm (or dimension) of peace and tranquility. The principal inhabitants are Zokk and Maftra, the Dog-Gods worshipped by Korrek, the Kathartan barbarian. Zokk and Maftra appear as dogs to human eyes. They even appear to have two caretakers: an elderly man and woman. The Therea dimension was first mentioned in Adventures into Fear #15.
