Duat Island is a outpost island located in the Komodo Archipelago. There are three known routes from the island: Buyan's Vortice, Midgard Island, and an inter-archipelago route to Cenote Island in the Lacerta Archipelago.
Duat is currently controlled by Bite Me.
The names of buildings on Duat, like that of the island itself, once related to Egyptian mythology. After winning Duat, Bite Me changed the naming scheme to general play-on-words.
An inscription on a row boat, on the eastern coast by the landing, reads, "This island were fashioned by Polly."
In Egyptian mythology, Duat is the name for the underworld. The island resembles the head of Anubis, the jackal-headed Egyptian god associated with mummification and the afterlife - he is facing towards the north-east.
In September 2008, Brynhild Skullsplitter took control of the island as part of its opening for colonization.
