Hades (Haides, Aidoneus, Pluto)
Hades is the god of the Greek Underworld and the dead. Husband to Persephone and in some myths father to Melinoe. He is the first born son of the titans Kronos and Rhea and the last to be regurgitated by Kronos when Zeus saved his siblings. After the war of the Titans, Zeus, Poseidon, and Hades drew lots to decide who would rule the sky, the oceans and the underworld. Hades was unfortunate and ended up in the underworld away from his brothers and sisters.
Hades is often mistaken as the god of death, evil and mischievous. He rules the dead but does not collect them and he is very dedicated to his job of keeping the dead in the underworld and keeping the living out. Compared to Zeus and Poseidon he is the least likely to interfere with human affairs and play games with him. He is often depicted with the bident, helm of invisibility and being associated with the narcissus flower.
