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.
Persephone was born to Demeter, the Goddess of harvest and was said to have been abducted by Hades who rules the Underworld. In her mother’s grief over her daughter being promised to Hades by Zeus, king of gods Demeter mourned and devised a punishment where all the crops became stillborn and the soil barren. Moved by this, Zeus ordered Hermes to escort Persephone back to her mother.
