persephone is the daughter of Zeus and the harvest goddess Demeter, and is the queen of the underworld. Homer describes her as the formidable, venerable majestic queen of the underworld, who carries into effect the curses of men upon the souls of the dead. Persephone was abducted by Hades, the god-king of the underworld
HADES (Roman PLUTO) was the God of the Underworld and the Dead, he was not the God of Death, as many people falsely believe. Since he lived in the darkness, Hades developed a rather morbid personality, which was not much liked by the other Gods or humans.
