Case File: Hades vs. Theseus and Pirithous

Police Reports

Case Description: Complainant (Hades) accuses Defendants (Pirithous and Theseus) of attempted kidnapping for conspiring to steal his wife, Persephone.

Case Status: Case closed. Complainant sentenced Pirithous and Theseus to permanent imprisonment in the underworld by freezing their butts to a rock. The hero Heracles rescued Theseus, but Pirithous got stuck there forever. Of course, Theseus is dead now, so we guess he's there, too. At least he isn't stuck to a rock, though.
