Case File: Commendation: Good Samaritan

Police Reports

Case Description: The International Society of Good Samaritans commends Hecate for helping Demeter to find her daughter Persephone after Hades dragged the young goddess down to the Underworld to be his bride. Persephone still has to spend a part of every year in the Land of the Dead with Hades, but while she's there, Hecate keeps her company. (After all, Hecate is one of the few beings who can go in and out of the Underworld whenever she pleases.)
