Why I chose Hades

I chose Hades because i thought he looked kinda cool, because of where he lived and he lived in dark places. I also like the dark and he is cruel and mean. I think of myself of not a nice person and I can be really mean. That is why I chose Hades.


The Father of Hades, Zeus, and Poseidon. He was evil and cruel. He was married to Rhea. He ate his children when he heard of a prophecy which one of his children are to destroy him. But after he devoured his children since they were immortal they didnt die, but they just lived in his stomach.


She was goddess of comfort and ease. She hid away Zeus and was guarded by sheild-clashing. She hid Zeus so Cronus wont devour him.
