Case File: Hades vs. Psyche and Aeneas

Police Reports

Case Description: Complainant (Hades) accuses Defendants (Psyche and Aeneas) of animal cruelty. Both Psyche and Aeneas got by Cerberus on their respective trips to the Underworld by feeding Cerberus honey cakes laced with a sleeping potion.

Case Status: Dismissed. Persephone convinced Hades to drop the charges. We suspect she was happy that the hellhound was asleep for a while. His howling and hissing drive her nuts.
