Those wormy things, although its never been outright stated, are part of the Rage Clan. They're the Clan seen briefly on Pennyroyal's island and responsible for draining the blood essence of Leyj, Ahab, and Nell while they trekked through the mud pit. No one noticed due to their anesthetic saliva.

Lil story about the Rage Clan; I got the idea from a memory I had when I was about 4. We had just parked and were walking up the lawn to the house when I noticed something colorful. I went to go see and found these two weirdly writhing slimy things sticking out of the ground.

One was a soft blue. The other a sickly faded orange. They were maybe three inches apart. They wriggled about vertically like they were checking the air and then ducked down into their holes when I drew near, leaving similar colored slime behind.

To this day, after having studied many forms of biology and life for hours on end, I still have no idea what the hell it is I saw. That's the story behind the Rage Clan's inspiration.

I couldn't put a finger on what you saw either.

Say, this Xibalba region. Does this region have anything to do with hell or the afterworld? It is any kind of religious place or simply another dimension known to very few?

I don't want to give away too much, but I'll say this much; a pocket dimension known to very few is probably closer to the truth, but not precisely the concept.

The basic idea put forth during the introduction with Nell is the place is roughly a coterminous layer alongside the normal world. What Ahab calls the Subterranea and the orange sky world (Xibalba) are the same.

The closest link it really has to an afterlife setting is the amount of ghosts and shadowlings that exist there. Why they're there is another story all together.
