Hades, Greek god of the underworld. He was also known as Pluto, his Roman equivalent was Dis. Hades was son of the Titans Rhea and Cronus and the brothers of Zeus and Poseidon. His queen was Persephone, the daughter of Demeter, whom he kidnapped from earth and carried off to the underworld.

     Stern and pitiless, unmoved by prayer or sacrifice, he presided over the trial and punishment of the wicked after death. His name was also sometimes used to designate the dwelling, place of the death and it later became a synonym for Hell.

  1. Sorry but I'm pretty sure his Roman equivalent is Pluto. Dis is a demon in Christian-Judaeon Lore, representing the darker destructive side of Satan.
