Basic InformationEdit

Hades (pron.: /ˈhdz/; from Greek ᾍδης (older form Ἀϝίδης), Hadēs, originally ἍιδηςHaidēs or ΆΐδηςAidēs (Doric Ἀΐδας Aidas), meaning "the unseen"[1]) was the ancient Greek god of the underworld. The genitive ᾍδουHaidou, was an elision to denote locality: "[the house/dominion] of Hades". Eventually, the nominative came to designate the abode of the dead. In Greek mythology, Hades is the oldest male child of Cronus and Rhea. According to myth, he and his brothers Zeus and Poseidon defeated the Titans and claimed rulership over the cosmos, ruling the underworld, air, and sea, respectively; the solid earth, long the province of Gaia, was available to all three concurrently.

Works And RelationsEdit

Hades is an Olympian. His brothers (Zeusand Poseidon) and himself divided the creation into thirds. Each one claimed a portion for there own, Hades took the Underworld.  Once someone entered Hades' land, they didn't come back. This did not include Heracles and Odysseus.  If a mortal were to kneel before Hades, it was pure justice.  Hades was very greedy.
