Connections to today
Hades is seen as a stern, bearded man who guards the underworld. He talks very little. He keeps it very well guarded giving prisoners little or no chance to get out,with the help of his kind,loving dog,Cerberus. He is feared so much that mortals don't dare say his name. Instead,they call him things like The Rich One or The Hospitable One.

Persephone was Demeter's daughter and Demeter loved Persephone more than anything. But she was so beautiful even Hades loved her. So one day, when Persephone was in a meadow Hades made a move. He split open the earth and carried Persephone down to the underworld. Persephone was not happy but neither was Demeter. All of earths nature was dying because Demeter was upset. Demeter searched everywhere for her daughter, and finally she came to Triptolemus and he told her Persephone went through a crack in the earth. Demeter realized she was in the underworld. She went to Zeus and Zeus told Hades to return Persephone. Persephone was so lost in the moment that she ate some pomegranate seeds from a tree in the underworld. Zeus decided that instead of staying in the underworld forever, Persephone would stay there for half of a year. That's how seasons were created.

Overall Hades is very greedy and powerful but also very lonely. I think that if Hades showed more kindness to others he would receive more respect from other gods.
