Hades is the brother of Zeus and Poseidon. He's pretty much always in a bad mood because he's stuck being the lord of the dead, while his brothers rule the sky and the sea. We have to say, we can't really blame him. It must be pretty depressing hanging out in the gloomy underworld all day. Even his wife, Persephone, dreads being down there. Of course, he did kind of kidnap her and force her to marry him…
The Greek Underworld, a.k.a. Hades (It was named after me. I bet my brothers wished they could say the same about the realms they rule over.)
Lord of the Dead
I rule the Underworld, Poseidon rules the seas, Zeus rules the heavens, and we all rule the earth.
Cronus (dad) and Rhea (mom)
Unlike my brothers, not many. Maybe the Erinyes (a.k.a. the Furies)
My brothers, Zeus and Poseidon (most of the time)
My dad Cronus, who ate me
Married to Persephone (whether she likes it or not)
My lovely wife (and the occasional nymph).
