Roman Name: Pluto

 

Hades is the King of the Underworld. His brothers are Zeus and Poseidon. Hades was an exceedingly affluent God because of all the valuable minerals within the earth. His wife was Persephone, whom he abducted while she was picking a flower. He was summoned to bring Persephone back to her mother, Demeter, although when she was departing he fed her pomegranate seeds, and for each seed she ate would be one more month she would have to stay down in the Underworld with him. No-one would talk about him, and he seldom came to Olympus or Earth because he was not welcome there. Everyone thought of him as a awful and dreadful God, because he was the one who would carry the loved ones into his kingdom. He has a helmet which whenever he wore it, he would become invisible.
