Hades was the Greek God of the Underworld, the ruler of the dead. Hades was an important God, because he incorporated the concept of the “other world” and sometimes the idea of the good and the evil.
Hades in Greek means the Unseen. Although the name Hades was the name of the God himself, it soon became synonymous to the place where the dead people would go, so Hades soon became synonymous of the Underworld.
The Attributes and Symbols of Hades
Hades decided to appoint a guardian for the Underworld. This guardian was Cerberus, the three headed dog that would tear apart anyone that was not supposed to be in the Underworld. Cerberus was one of the mythological creatures associated with the God of the Dead, along with the cypress tree.
A common attribute to the God was Narcissus and the Key of Hades, which implied that he was guarding carefully anyone who would enter his domains and that no one could escape without his permission.

Hades and Persephone
Although Hades was the God of the Underworld and the Dead, he was not the God of Death, as many people falsely believe. Thanatos was the God of Death and brother of Hypnos.
Hades was ruling the Underworld and the souls that resided in it, but he was not choosing who would have such a fate. People tend to associate him with death, because he was so fearsome, but in fact, Hades was one of the most just Gods of the Dodecatheon.
Hades was basically a way for the Greeks to come to terms with the idea of Death and Afterlife. He was more like the continuation of life, “housing” in a way the souls once the bodies died.
Hades and Persephone
Hades was married to Persephone, daughter of Goddess Demeter. Their love story is described in the myth of Hades and Persephone.
