Case File: Commendation for Orpheus

Police Reports

Case Description: Persephone gives Orpheus a medal for charming the hellhound Cerberus. The Queen of the Dead was beyond happy when Orpheus played his lyre to put the beast to sleep. According to Persephone, that stinkin' dog barks all the time with all three heads. Even the short while that Orpheus put the dog to sleep was the most peace she'd had in years.

Case Status: Whenever Cerberus gets too annoying, Persephone gives Orpheus a call.
