Your Field Guide to Spotting Hades (Pluto)

Hades looks a lot like his brothers Zeus and Poseidon, but he has a dark beard and hair. He's always taking his three-headed hellhound, Cerberus, for a walk around Mount Olympus. You wouldn't believe the droppings that thing leaves behind. If you see Hades, don't bother trying to start a conversation with him, though. He's not so great with living people.
