The Mortal Realm is where humans and some immortals live. It is set in the time of Ancient Greece, and therefore lacks the technology of the godly realms. The Mortal Realm is where Demeter has chosen to live and run her business Barley Mother, and where Persephone was raised. Hades reveals that he was born in the Mortal Realm, specifically in the region now known as Sicily. Persephone mentions that the Mortal Realm is too warm for snow when she sees it for the first time in the Underworld.
Demeter used to bring spring to the Mortal Realm, before her daughter Persephone took over. Hades explains how different the two execute spring, and how he prefers Persephone's version.
