|― Hades note to Persephone, Episode 47|
Hades, born Aidoneus, is the God of the Dead and King of the Underworld. He is the male protagonist of Lore Olympus. Originally born to be the God of Wealth and the eldest son of Kronos & Rhea, he is the CEO of Underworld Corp and a member of the 6 Traitors Dynasty.
Hades is very tall with broad shoulders and a sharp, long nose. He has azure skin and ivory white and blue toned hair. He wears his hair short, but in the Mortal Realm it becomes longer. His eyes are black, and are often illustrated with different colored irises depending on his mood (most frequently red.) He has a muscular physique and trails of white scars crisscross his upper body.
While in the Underworld, Hades usually wears formal attire consisting of black business suits, slacks, and a white button-up dress shirt with a sable tie. For outerwear, Hades wears a black pea coat. His sleepwear can range from an Underworld Con '96 sweatshirt with black sweatpants to just a pair of boxers.
In the Mortal Realm, Hades wears long Greek robes in dark blue and gray.
In his human form, he has brown skin, amber eyes (which turn red when alert), and long, creamy-white colored hair. His clothes are a short chiton with blue fabric draped over his arm and crystal claspings on the shoulders, sandals, and a black pointed crown.
Hades was born over 2,000 years ago in the Mortal Realm, specifically in the region of Sicily. Born Aidoneus, he was the eldest son of the Titans Rhea and Cronus. A prophecy was foretold by Gaia that the young god would become a threat to his father's rule; as such, Cronus sought to get rid of his son before that time came. He allowed his wife, Rhea, to spend at least 5-6 years with the young Aidoneus before he became impatient and took him from her. During the few years they had together, Aidoneus became very close to Rhea, and she continually doted on her son. At some point, Hades also met the Titan Goddess of the Night, Nyx, who was especially fond of him. On Aidoneus' sixth birthday, Cronus decided that Rhea had had enough time with their son, and came to take him away. Rhea told her son to run and desperately tried distracting Cronus in an attempt to protect Aidoneus, but the Titan was not fooled and found the boy immediately. Without any hesitation, he captured his son and devoured him whole.
Aidoneus was eventually released from Kronos after 13 years alone by his brother Zeus, but sustained heavy injuries from Kronos when he chewed Aidoneus to prevent him from escaping. This experience was deeply traumatic for him, to the point where he suffers from nightmares of Kronos in the present day.
Before the war against the Titans, a badly injured Aidoneus, recovering from his imprisonment, was apparently left in the care of Metis. It was around this time that Aidoneus first met Hera, who was shy and not used to being away from her sisters for long. Hera was tasked by Metis to help tend to the wounded god's injuries. Scared at first, the young goddess slowly began to help Aidoneus with his bandages, speaking to him and acknowledging that he had been alone for 13 years. Although in pain, the injured god gently caressed her face. Smiling at him, she moved towards him and the two shared a kiss. It was this event that sparked the relationship between them.
Eventually, Aidoneus joined a rebel force against the tyranny of the Titans, known in the present day as the 6 Traitors Dynasty. Alongside his younger brothers, Poseidon and Zeus, and the three goddesses Hera, Demeter, and Hestia, Aidoneus helped dismantle the rule of the Titans and aided in the imprisonment of his father in Tartarus.
After the war, Aidoneus and Hera's relationship came to an end. This was evidently due to the actions of Zeus, who liked Hera and was jealous of their relationship. There are implications that this was also the reason why Aidoneus was assigned the rule of the Underworld. Even so, Aidoneus and Hera apparently still held feelings for each other, even after the latter married Zeus. Other than Hera, there was Hestia, who Hades genuinely liked. But because she took a vow of celibacy, romantically pursuing her was out of the question. That left Demeter, the goddess he got along with the least. Hades recalls that the two of them argued about practically everything. Upon being assigned to the Underworld, Hades spent long hours and many days running it. He ultimately became so busy, that he had little time for romance, and stopped trying altogether. Around the time he became ruler of the Underworld, Aidoneus adopted Cerberus, then a young puppy, who gave him company during his time there as well as befriended Hecate, a goddess who resided in the Underworld long before Aidoneus arrived.
As Ruler of the Underworld and due to his striking resemblance to the his father, Hades grew a reputation in the mortal realm and Olympus as a dark entity. Mortals started calling Aidoneus by the name Hades, which meant "Unseen One." Eventually everyone, even his family, started calling him by this name.
A Bolt for the Blue
After being stood up by his nymph girlfriend Minthe, Hades was forced to attend his brother Zeus’ 1,500th Panathenaea by himself, though he felt awkward having to attend stag, while his family all had dates. After some playful mocking from his brothers, Hades noticed a pink goddess with Artemis and became immediately smitten with her. Zeus introduces her as Persephone: Goddess of Spring and Demeter’s daughter. This surprises Hades as he never knew Demeter had a daughter and wonders why he has never heard of her to which Zeus explains that Demeter chose to raise Persephone in the mortal realm because she believes Zeus is morally corrupt. While admiring her beauty Hades comments that she is more beautiful than Aphrodite, oblivious to Aphrodite standing right behind him when he said this. Wanting to approach her without Artemis interfering, Zeus helps Hades by distracting Artemis so he can be alone with her. Unfortunately Hades could not find Persephone and feeling embarrassed, decided to return home.
Once he arrived home Hades noticed Persephone passed out in the back of his car. Realizing this is the work of Aphrodite, Hades brings her in and lets her sleep in his guest room. Persephone asks Hades not to tell her mother that she got drunk which Hades promises.
The next morning while preparing himself for the day, Hades hears his dog Cerberus barking in the distance and rushes to find him about to attack Persephone. Just as he was about to intervene, Persephone manages to tame the gatekeeper of the underworld by playfully petting him, much to the surprise and envy of Hades. After scolding Cerberus, Hades helps Persephone off the ground which makes her spawn a crown of blue flowers, embarrassing herself. Persephone asks Hades if he has something she could borrow as she feels too cold with the dress she was wearing. Hades in return gifts her a fur coat he intended to give to Hera. Persephone at first declines the gift until Hades insists she can keep it as neither he or Hera want to wear it. When asked how she looked with the coat, Hades, while blushing, remarked that she looked sufficient and offers her coffee.
While making her a pot, Persephone notices Hades phone receiving a call from Minthe. Hades tries to brush her off as a nymph he associates with but Persephone correctly deduces that Minthe is his lover and points out that Hades and his brothers have a reputation for having many sordid affairs. Hades flirtatiously asks Persephone if he looks like a scoundrel to which a flustered Persephone admits he is at least 30% scoundrel.
After filling Persephone in on how she ended up at his house and helping Persephone adjust her hair, the two give each other a proper introduction, by exchanging business cards; Persephone however gives Hades an old card with her original name : Kore. Persephone is embarrassed and asks for it back to which the King of the Underworld refuses and pulls her in close but puts her down after he realizes how close they are to each other, making Persephone blush.
Persephone questions why Eros would put her in Hades car, Persephone begins to think she had done something to upset him. A guilt ridden Hades confesses to Persephone that he is responsible for their predicament, because he said Persephone was more beautiful than Aphrodite. Initially taken aback by this comment, Persephone breaks out in laughter and assumed Hades was just joking to make her feel better.
While Persephone begins playing with Hades’ dog Cordon Blue, Hades receives a phone call from his brother Zeus reminding him that they are still meeting for family brunch. Hades tries to get out of attending until Zeus commands him to come, much to Hades’ reluctance. Hades and Persephone’s day is cut short and Hades prepares to take Persephone home. Persephone, enthusiastic by Hades collection of cars, asks to drive them. Hades at first refuses but eventually gives in and allows Persephone to drive them to Olympus.
Just as they arrive at Artemis’ house, Artemis herself jumps at the car and demands Persephone get in the house. Not wanting to end their meeting on such a sour note, Hades playfully calls Persephone Kore while Persephone tells Hades he is 20% scoundrel as the two bid each other goodbye.
On his way to brunch with his brothers, Hades listens to his messages he received from Minthe but deletes them while he thinks about Persephone. Coincidentally he receives a message from an unknown number but ignores it while he continues to drive.
Arriving at a strip club with his brothers, the three kings were denied entry for their past transgressions such as sexual harassment (done by Zeus), property damage (done by Poseidon), and poaching employees (done by Hades). Hades managed to compensate the club owner by paying for the damages. Zeus and Poseidon begin interrogating Hades about his night with Persephone. Hades at first tries not to talk about Persephone until Poseidon provokes Hades by saying he'll take Persephone as a second wife. Hades admits that he is smitten with Persephone but insists that he and Persephone just had a nice conversation, and would have had more to say if Zeus didn't drag him to a strip club in the morning. Zeus, oblivious to his earlier actions, insists that Hades should have told him when he called but Hades and Poseidon glare at Zeus, reminding him that he commanded they come, which Zeus admits he is at fault for.
Hades believes that he should simply give up on the idea of being with Persephone as he does not believe she would want to be with him, and the fact that he is technically still with Minthe. Zeus and Poseidon groan at the mere mention of Minthe's name however. Hades reaches into his pocket and reveals an engagement ring and that he was planning to propose to Minthe at the Panathenaea, but she never came. When Zeus and Poseidon react in disappointment and shock that Hades would choose to marry Minthe, Hades reminds them that they have queens and he did not. While Zeus and Poseidon sympathize with Hades, they still believe he deserves better than Minthe. Hades crushes the ring upon hearing their words.
As a nymph waitress arrives with their drinks, Zeus continues to talk about Persephone and how Hades could at least admire her beauty. Hades says that she possessed a melancholic quality he couldn't quite put his finger on which Zeus snickered at as he recalls Hades saying last night how he wished he could live between Persephone's thighs. Hades denies saying such things until Poseidon confirms Zeus's claims. Zeus questions how Hades and Persephone could be intimate given their height difference which Hades jokes that she could go top, as he wasn't fussy. The nymph waitress, after overhearing their remarks snaps her fingers and transforms, revealing herself to be Hera, frightening the three kings.
“Persephone: You’re a king! Why would you care what I think?!
Hades: Because I want you!”
Hades and Persephone first met in the Mortal Realm, although Hades does not remember this meeting. After drunkenly traveling there in order to visit Hecate, who was visiting at the time, Hades is left unattended in a room on Demeter's property. Persephone sneaks in through a window to see him, taking the form of a butterfly. Persephone is surprised that Hades is not as scary as she thought, and in response, Hades ends up frightening Persephone badly enough that she returns to her normal form and lands on him with only dissolved butterflies covering her. The two then have an exchange, during which Persephone desperately inquires as to whether Hades can return mortals from the dead. Hades responds that he cannot, and Persephone continues to plead with him before ultimately fleeing when she hears Demeter coming, to Hades' disappointment. Hades ends up inquiring about the pink goddess he encountered. Demeter initially tries to deny he saw a goddess, being protective over Persephone. When Hades is insistent at what he saw, and wonders out loud if she is available to be courted, Demeter suddenly encourages him to drink more, presumably in order to cause Hades to blackout and not remember the encounter.
Hades and Persephone officially meet after the Panathenaea held at Zeus and Hera's. Upon seeing Persephone in the crowd, Hades is smitten, and asks Zeus who she is and why he has never seen her before. After Zeus explains that Demeter raised Persephone in the Mortal Realm, Hades remarks to his brothers that Persephone's beauty puts Aphrodite's to shame. The brothers encourage Hades to go talk to her, which he attempts to do. Unbeknownst to Hades, however, a jealous Aphrodite overheard his comment and has plotted to have her son Eros intoxicate Persephone and put her in Hades's car. Hades is flustered after being unable to find Persephone in the crowd, and decides to head home. When he arrives, he discovers Persephone in his backseat. He carefully brings her inside his home and settles her in his guest room. When Persephone wakes up the next morning, the two talk and quickly form a connection. Hades gives her a jacket that was meant for Hera and even allows her to drive one of his cars, which he doesn't let anyone do. From then on, the pair have a very close, flirtatious relationship.
Hades seems to always feel relaxed and happy in Persephone's company. In a letter he writes to her but never plans on sending, he tells her how he loves how she makes him feel. Her kind and thoughtful nature and the genuine attention he receives from her make him quickly develop feelings for her. This translates into how he acts when around her, tending to be caring and sweet, sometimes timid, and occasionally fiercely protective. He begins to add to a drawer full of gifts from Persephone or things that remind him of Persephone.
Although he deeply cares for the Goddess of Spring, Hades is scared of his feelings and hesitates to act upon them due to his complicated relationship with a nymph named Minthe. Due to his poor luck with relationships, he is unsure what true love feels like, and as a result is uncertain if he genuinely loves Persephone or is just infatuated with her. He is also concerned that he will hurt her due to his emotional baggage and her selfless personality, understanding that a relationship with him is a lot to put on someone so young. Due to these uncertainties, Hades decides it is best to keep his distance from her, although he struggles to do so.
As the story progresses, Hades finds it more and more difficult to stay away from Persephone, especially when Hera pulls strings to land Persephone an internship in the Underworld. He desperately attempts another go at a committed relationship with Minthe in an attempt to distance himself from his feelings for Persephone. After Minthe fails to show up to their date, Hades decides to break his rule and read a letter Persephone gave to Hecate which Hecate gave to Hades. The letter reveals the two have met before the party which causes Hades to panic and wishes to know how they met but is embarrass to ask Persephone and afraid she would think he's a creep when all he has as proof is the letter. He then goes to the Fates for help and at the end of Episode 75, a still image produced by the Fates shows Persephone as Queen of the Underworld, revealing that the two will eventually get married.
After Persephone and Hades admit that there is a strong connection between them, Hades come to terms with his feelings and decides to end ties with Minthe. She jealously tells him he is too messed up to pursue Persephone, to which Hades responds that regardless of whether he and Persephone work out, his relationship with Minthe is over.
Hades and Persephone attempt to follow the rules to slow down their relationship and Hades soon discovers it was Persephone's birthday when Hermes arrives to give her balloons. He becomes self conscious and states he truly knows nothing about her. He then helps her get a bank account and Persephone learns about Hades and Minthe's breakup through Eros, making her feel guilty and thinking it was her fault but he assures it that it isn't.
In Episode 110, after a brief argument over Persephone going to the beach to give coins to the shades, Hades finally admits to Persephone that he wants her and the two share a kiss. However, Persephone unintentionally turns into butterflies and leaves him. He feels he messed up their relationship by telling her the truth and not having enough self control despite being thousands of years old. Persephone later calls Hades when she has trouble sleeping and the two discuss their kiss where she reveals that her body reacted in a way she never expected because she got excited. The two fall alseep in her bedroom despite Persephone knowing she could get in trouble. The next morning, they wake up and Hades has to go home to feed his dogs but he ask her to come with him to have breakfast. In seconds, she's ready to go and the two return to the Underworld where they spend the morning together, enjoying each other's company before she leaves.
When Persephone is unable to be found, he joins Artemis and Eros's search with Hecae. Eventually he finds Persephone almost close to hibernation after her disappearance and Zeus placing a warrant for her and Demeter's arrest. Hades lets her stay in the Underworld and hears the real truth about her act of wrath. After hearing her out, he shows her the tape of their first real meeting and while she finds it funny, he is embarrassed. He then opens up to her by telling her the story of his parents, how he was saved by Zeus, and gained his scars.
When Zeus orders Hades to hand over Persephone, Hades refuses which causes the brothers to argue and make Zeus lash out by telling him that Persephone is using him but Hades knows he only said it to hurt him. Before finding Persephone, he had threaten Zeus by telling him that he ignored his previous behavior because he saved his life years ago from their Father but the line in the sand would be drawn if Zeus were to deliver on his threat of making an example of Persephone and Demeter.
In episode 144, Hades and Persephone have their second kiss, leading to a brief make out session before they stop and he asks to take her out on a date once they get through the trial, signaling the start of their relationship. After the flower nymphs from the mortal realm arrive, Hades welcomes them to his home and gets to meet Persephone's family while gaining all of their approval of their relationship. However, Apollo and Artemis's mother Leto sneaks into the Underworld and tells Persephone how he once asked Hera to be his queen, something he had yet to tell Persephone himself.
Hera is Hades' sister-in-law and former fling. They get along very well, though as Hebe points out, Hera may sometimes take her frustrations with Zeus out on Hades. When she learns of her brother-in-law's attraction to Persephone, she initially disapproves, but after some consideration, she decides to secretly test him to see if he is suitable for Persephone. When Hades passes, Hera decides to encourage and support the relationship.
It is revealed that before the war against the Titans, Hera and Hades had mutual feelings for each other, and were apparently in a relationship that came to an end because of Zeus. It is also implied that they both held a candle for each other even after centuries had passed. Because of Zeus' constant infidelity, Hera, in retaliation, had a long-term sexual affair with Hades. They ultimately ended the affair during the "80's" (most likely sometime before Hades met Minthe).
Minthe is Hades' personal assistant and ex-girlfriend. Hades had consistently been in a very conflicting state of mind with Minthe. The two had a very toxic relationship, where they would share moments of affection which would be severely counterbalanced by constant fighting. Hades would frequently buy Minthe expensive gifts, including her apartment. However, Minthe's commitment issues and insecurities caused her to be verbally abusive towards Hades. In the first episode she taunts him for stinking of death. It appears that Hades stayed with Minthe because he believed he was undeserving of a true relationship built on trust and love. Hades was also well aware of Minthe and Thanatos, the God of Death and soul collector, hooking up at work and stated it was not a well kept secret.
When Hades meets Persephone and glimpses what a real healthy relationship would look like, he begins to drift away from Minthe. Minthe, jealous and suddenly frightened of Hades leaving her, shows up at Hades' home and begs him to continue their relationship, claiming that they are meant to be "messed up together."
Hades decides to once again try a relationship with Minthe, largely out of guilt and to get thoughts of Persephone out of his head. However, due to the interference of a jealous Thetis, Minthe once again disappoints Hades by failing to show up to a dinner that she suggested they have. Minthe's insecurity over this incident causes her to blow up at Hades at work, verbally and even physically abusing him by telling him he is lucky she considers him, claiming he looks like his father, Cronus, and then striking him. After this event, Hades decides to end their relationship for good. He tells her that he wants to feel loved and safe every day, and that their relationship doesn't provide this for him. He does, however, allow her to keep her job and apartment out of goodwill. In response, Minthe claims that Persephone will not want Hades, as he is still just as messed up as her, and that Hades will soon come back like he always does.
Minthe then joins Thetis and Thanatos in reporting Persephone's act of wrath with the intention that Hades would no longer want Persephone. However, it is revealed by Hermes that Hades has chosen Persephone over her as she is his favor. Despite Hermes's words, Minthe is still convinced she can win Hades back as Persephone is not wanted for treason. Minthe plans to seduce Hades by going to his office in a trench coat with lingerie under it, fails and leads with Hades having her leave. She would be unaware that Persephone was there and witness the event but was using the Cloak of Invisibility to go unnoticed in the building.
After attending a workout studio, Minthe meets two employees that had witness Hades and Persephone making out and how the entire Underworld knew of the relationship expect her. When she attends work, she tries to relive their past history but Hades offers her a transfer, believing it would be better if the two didn't work at a close proximity as it was making things difficult for her to move on. Minthe spirals and believes this was all Persephone's doing before revealing she had reported Persephone to Zeus. Unknown to Minthe, Persephone was once again present and both Persephone and Hades go after Minthe when she runs away from Persephone in fear. Although Hades came to late to stop Persephone from turning Minthe into a plant, Hades had transformed into his true form out of anger when Minthe revealed the truth. Despite this, Hades wishes to find a way to undo the transformation and revert Minthe back to her true form.
Poseidon is Hades' younger brother. The two get along fairly well, despite Hades' occasional annoyance over Poseidon's reckless lifestyle and childish nature. Hades appears to be the one that picks up after Poseidon's messes, as he pays for the damage Poseidon causes at the strip club. Poseidon will often give Hades' relationship advice, and respects Hades' wishes. In Episode 130, both older brothers knew that Zeus used his status to send out an arrest warrant on both Persephone and her mother Demeter without consent.
Zeus is Hades' youngest brother. Most of the time, they don't see eye to eye, and Hades is frequently annoyed when Zeus demands him to tag along on his mischief. Zeus does, however, try to look out for Hades, and he is not without advice and encouragement regarding relationships. He recognizes that Hades' relationship with Minthe is unhealthy and attempts to convince his brother to leave her, telling him he shouldn't settle for just an "okay Queen of the underworld". Likewise, when Zeus confides in him late at night over his struggling relationship with Hera, Hades remains kind and supportive, recommending Zeus think on it later and try to sleep. Although Zeus seems to have been aware of Hera and Hades's feelings for one another before Zeus and Hera got married, it is unknown if Zeus was aware of the two were occasionally sleeping together for many years.
In episode 127 by Persephone's act of wrath, Zeus say that they should "make an example" of her. Hades notably looks angry and furious about this and warns his brother that he has let many of his mistakes go but the line in the sand would be crossed if he were to make good on his threat. In episode 135, their relationship goes to an even lower point when Zeus demands that Hades turn in Persephone and threatens her with a punishment worse than Prometheus'. When Hades tried to tell Zeus that they could have handled the situation in a more professional manner, and how the events that have happened were because of them, Zeus tells Hades that she was using him. Both brothers were shocked by this statement and Hades hangs up on Zeus despite Zeus seemingly wanting to apologize or keep the meeting going. When Persephone and Hades talk about what Zeus said, Hades is quick to assure Persephone that he knows she isn't using him and Zeus only said it because he was upset and wanted to hurt him which Hera also tells Zeus when the two talk about the meeting.
Hecate is Hades' closest friend, having met years ago when Hades first became King of the Underworld. Hecate says that despite him being a King, he will always be the earnest and shy man she met. Hecate works for Hades at Underworld Corp, appearing to function as his director of operations. Although Hades' outranks her, they have a casual relationship and she can often be seen bossing him around. When questioned why he never tried pursuing Hecate romantically, Hades pointed out that just because two people share the same workplace, it doesn't necessarily indicate that they are compatible.
Hecate is able to understand and sympathize with him when he reveals his romantic feelings for Persephone, despite originally becoming enraged after hearing about her overnight stay at his home. She is also willing to assist him in punishing the paparazzi responsible for the tabloid article featuring Hades and Persephone. After Hades and Minthe decide to have an "official" relationship, Hecate offers him advice and talk about his decision while also encouraging him to get to know Persephone despite his relationship. When Hecate leaves Persephone with Hades so that he could give her a tour, Alecto mentions how it's odd for her to get involved but Hecate states she's doing what's best for the Underworld. The two also comment how the looked like a married couple.
Despite Hecate appearing to avoid most of Hades and Minthe's usual arguments, she intervened during Minthe's intense abusive episode towards Hades which resulted in her hitting him, telling him that he was the splitting image of his father and also hit him again once more. Afterward, she comforted Hades with a hug and soon after called Hera to help him when he woke up. When Persephone goes missing, Hecate joins Hades in the search for her. When Hades finds Persephone near hibernation, Hecate does everything she can to help her. When Persephone is resting, Hades and Hecate briefly talk where he thanks her for her help.
Hades and Apollo have a mutual disdain for each other. One of the reasons that the Underworld never sees the daylight is because of Hades not wanting Apollo to enter his domain. Apollo, in return, is jealous of Hades and Persephone’s growing friendship and has tried to get between them multiple times.
