Descendants Wiki

The Isle of the Lost is one of The 19 Regions of Auradon. It is the island where King Beast and Queen Belle sentenced villains and had those who died revived and imprisoned them there due to their actions. It is also the home of many villainous children known as the Villain Kids, its former self-proclaimed leader is Maleficent due to her being considered the worst of the villains there.


Because of its inhabitants, a magical dome barrier was placed around the Isle to keep the residents inside which causes no signal or Wi-Fi, those there are also stranded without magic, it was created by Fairy Godmother using her wand. Despite magic being disabled within the Isle, it may still be somewhat accessible to certain people such as Maleficent and her daughter Mal who were able to form some form of magic to turn their eyes green.

It is a slum area with poorly constructed houses with nothing good causing the people to resort to stealing from one another. Because they get whatever items no longer needed or wanted by the people of Auradon, some residents began to see their home as the Isle of the Leftovers, when attempting to buy something, old, rusty coins are used as currency.

After Mal, Jay, Evie and Carlos turned good and saved Auradon from Maleficent, they moved from the Isle permanently though still kept in contact with those they were close to. After Cotillion, it was decided that another four children could be given the chance to live in Auradon with Dizzy Tremaine, Celia Facilier, and the Smee twins attending on VK Day, after Audrey became corrupted, Mal believed it was for the best to keep the barrier closed for good but changed her mind after Audrey was saved and unified the Isle with Auradon.


Dragon Hall

Dragon Hall is the primary school located in a re-purposed tomb. Various villains teach there such as Coach Gaston, Professor Gothel, Lady Tremaine and Madam Mim, all teachers there teach the students of how to be wicked and to do better than they did for when the barrier falls, it is ran by Headmaster Dr. Facilier with the only staff member being of Auradon origin being Yen Sid who was sent there by King Beast.

Goblin Wharf

The only dock on the island, where ships bring in products and food from Auradon. It is manned by Goblins who can understand human speech. Many of them wish for amnesty, blaming their imprisonment on the island to their previous servitude with Maleficent; their dwarf cousin Doc understands their plight. Jay swipes party goods from the dock for the party at Hell Hall that Mal forced Carlos to have. Following the coronation, many goblins were put out of work as the barges that brought in supplies were limited by King Ben.

This is likely the only spot where there is a hole in the barrier; Jay and Mal had considered stealing a boat and heading to Auradon because of how they never seem to do enough to make their parents proud.

Bargain Castle

Formerly a proper, beautiful castle, which has now fallen into a shabby, broken down form. It now serves as a shop that sells used enchanter robes and pointed hats. The top floor serves as home to Maleficent and Mal. Mal's room is gothic in shades of purple. Maleficent often yells at the crowds from the balcony whenever she gets up; her room has a strong lock as she needs her "evil sleep". Maleficent hasn't quite adapted to life on the island as she doesn't keep her home stocked with food, and thinks her refrigerator is safe.

After Maleficent's defeat, the place was ransacked by practically everyone on the island, leaving only Mal's room alone as she was the one who defeated her mother. The inhabitants believed Mal was still evil, thinking she was only pretending to be good.

Jafar's Junk Shop

A shop open at irregular hours, selling whatever is pilfered by Jay, ripping off its customers with the lousy merchandise; effectively, making property on the island go in a loop - bought, stolen, bought again, etc. The shop also serves as home to Jafar and Jay, along with Iago. There are many locks, due to thieves believing in keeping their own home safe. There's a small living area in the back with the shop, complete with a kitchen and sitting room, which Jafar has decorated to invoke memories of Agrabah.

Jafar has a considerable amount of coins, which he counts as a way to ease his mind. Following Jay's departure from the island, Jafar had to think of new ways to acquire his merchandise.


The Evil Queen's castle, having been sent to the island; serves as home to her and Evie. Lacking servants, and because she cared too much about her appearance, the Evil Queen let the castle fall into disrepair. It is implied that the castle is big enough to get lost in as Evie noted she and her mother never strayed too far from the center of the castle; this also implies their rooms were close to the kitchen. For a decade, it served as a prison to both Evil Queen and Evie after Maleficent unreasonably said they were banished for simply not inviting Mal to Evie's 6th birthday party. Vultures served as the only means for which items were gotten for the Evil Queen and her daughter during that decade. It is also down the street from Hell Hall.

When the Evil Queen went missing, Yen Sid and the Anti-Heroes club turned one of the castle's basements into their meeting room. The basement has meeting tables and a blackboard.

Hell Hall

Home of Cruella and Carlos De Vil, having been transported to the island by magic. An old Victorian mansion, which has fallen into further disrepair over the years. The home is maintained by Carlos, who is practically his mother's slave. According to the narrative description, "it was cover in vines, more twisted than Cruella's mind. And iron gates more wrought than her daily hysterias." Carlos keeps a treehouse lab, where he experiments in his free time. Horace and Jasper's sons Harold and Jason are forced to spend time here as Carlos's fake friends/minions. The main party hall has black and white wallpaper and holes in the walls. Noted by Carlos, Hell Hall was not insulated for winter. Cruella still keeps her coats, in a closet protected by numerous bear traps; Carlos is forbidden from touching them, even to use as a blanket for the cold.

Hades' Cave

This cave is deep underground where the god Hades lives. It is deep enough underground that there are cracks in parts of the cave that allow a little bit of magic to pass through. To go to the cave, go along a series of tunnels buried under the basement of Dragon Hall.

Slop Shop

The Isle of the Lost's version of a coffee shop. It sells a variety of expired and used food from Auradon. Their coffee is always strong and black, never making anything weaker than it. The goblins from Maleficent's army run the shop, often misspelling the customers' names; the joke was on them as no-one can read Goblin. The goblins have the rule of not letting customers linger if they are done with their meals.

Hook's Inlet

A fishing shop owned by Captain Hook. His ship, the Jolly Roger, is parked next to it. The crocodiles descended from Tick Tock Croc are normally in the water around here.

Queen of Hearts' Salon

A salon owned by the Queen of Hearts. Cruella De Vil was known to have frequented it. It's likely here that there is a wigmaker, who provided Cruella with her numerous hairpieces.

Ursula's Fish and Chips

A shop ironically owned by Ursula, which serves fish, fries, and chips. Jay and Mal pilfered goods from her. Her daughter, Uma, is a waitress here.

Frollo's Creperie

A shop run by the Isle's former Judge Claude Frollo. It serves French food.

The Facilier's Shop

A shop owned by Freddie Facilier and her father, Dr. Facilier. This is where Freddie Facilier worked before heading to Auradon. It has many items in it, similar to a department store, such as clothing, books, and other things.

Troll Town

As the name implies, trolls live here. Cruella visited often as they were great at massaging due to their large hands. It's unknown if other "boutique-like" shops exist here.

Witch School

A secondary school on the island, for the descendants of formerly magical parents. Carlos thought it was dumb for them to be a school for witches as the magic they learn would not be of any use thanks to the barrier. Mad Maddy is known to be a student here.

Isle of the Doomed

Hidden next to the Isle of the Lost is another island, where the Forbidden Fortress crumbles away. The fortress is now surrounded by thorns and poisonous spiders. It was here that Diablo, Maleficent's beloved familiar came back to life after Carlos's invention caused a brief hole in the barrier. Many traps were reactivated and proved a hindrance to Mal's attempt to retrieve her mother's staff; this includes the Cave of Wonders, a magic mirror, and gargoyle sentries. Many of the goblins that served Maleficent still remain on the isle but have devolved into cannibals after making the poor choice of waiting all these years for Maleficent to return.

Serpent Preparatory School for the Education of Miscreants

Located on the opposite side of Dragon Hall. This is the school where Uma, Harry Hook, and the rest of their Lost Revenge pirate crew attend.

Lady Tremaine's Curl Up & Dye

A beauty salon, that so much can belong to Lady Tremaine as to her daughters. Dizzy Tremaine works there sweeping the floor.

Gaston's Duels Without Rules

It may be a store of hunters instruments or a place where people duel each other, which belongs to Gaston.

Cauldron Repair

Is where the Horned King repairs cauldrons.

Shere Khan's Pawns

It is unknown what this store sells or does, it is only known that it belongs to the tiger Shere Khan.

Shan Yu's Dim Sums

It is where Shan Yu sells Dim Sum.

Escape from the Isle of the Lost: A Descendants Novel



  • Many of the villains were brought back from death (Maleficent, Ursula, Evil Queen, Judge Frollo, Dr. Facilier, Scar, the Horned King, Shan Yu, Gaston, Clayton, Mother Gothel, Professor Ratigan, etc.), only to be imprisoned on this island to suffer a far worse punishment for their crimes—to live without magic.
  • There's tons of graffiti around the island, along with clotheslines. Most of the graffiti either says "Down with Auradon" or "Long Live Evil" in a silhouette of a villain (that appears to be or look like Maleficent) with the word "live" mirrored to spell "evil". Numerous posters of King Beast (which are to encourage good behavior) are defaced.
  • It's likely Mal, Jay, and Evie's generation are the oldest of the island's children.
  • Maleficent was the leader of the island, due to having a foreboding presence, and an army of goblins. Once Mal defeated her, the island lost all respect for Maleficent and ransacked her home. The island now fears Mal by mistake, believing she is worse than her mother.
  • It seems the islanders fear of Maleficent is what kept the villains' society stable; the VKs noticed that the island devolved into chaos following Maleficent's defeat.
  • It remains unknown what happened to businesses run by villains such as Cruella De Vil, who had a fashion empire. The only possibilities are that non-villainous relatives took it over or it was either dismantled or taken over by the heroes.
  • Though the island is magically sealed off, magic from the outside proves effective in providing an escape:
    • A remote from a limousine driver opens a passageway directly from the island to Auradon.
    • In the series, Descendants: Wicked World, Mal, and her friends leave the island by when she wishes to leave (she rubbed a genie's lamp before accidentally transporting them back to the island with a wish moments after).
  • As it created the barrier surrounding the Isle of the Lost, Fairy Godmother's wand can be used in the Isle of the Lost as well as Auradon. This has been confirmed in Descendants 2 when Mal and the other VKs create a fake wand to distract Uma while they rescue King Benjamin, as Uma would not be demanding for the wand if she knew it's magic didn't work in the Isle.
  • The Coachman, from Pinocchio, has a taxi service there on the Isle of the Lost, where his donkey-drawn carriage serves as the taxi.
    • Before going to the island, he had to find all the boys who had been transformed into donkeys for a year.
  • It would seem King Beast planned to keep descendants of the villains imprisoned forever, despite the fact that they wouldn't have committed any crimes in Auradon to warrant imprisonment.
  • The Barrier was finally taken down by Mal in Descendants 3.
  • Alameda Slim, Percival C. McLeach, Lyle Tiberius Rourke, Sykes, Hans, and the Agent are the only villains that are missing on the Isle.
