"They did not know their place, so I am showing it to them."
"Your fanatical tone echoes our uncle Hades."
Kalypso and Hespera[src]

Hades, also known as Pluto, was the Greek God of the Dead, Mystery, and Wealth, as well as the ruler of the Underworld. Hades was worshiped by the Ancient Greeks and Romans before he was slain by Ares during the War of the Gods while attempting to help protect Mankind from him.


Early life[]

After usurping the Titans, Hades and his siblings,[1] the Old Gods, divvied up the power, with Hades claiming rule of the Underworld and having the power to decide the fate of mortals.[2]

War of the Gods[]

As his jealousy for Humans grew increasingly over the years, Ares soon used the added power of humanity's violence to strike down the other Old Gods, including Hades, one by one until only Zeus remained.[3]


According to Hespera, Hades was known to be a fanatical individual.
