God of the underworld. Brother of [[Zeus]], when the world was divided in three, received the underworld as his kingdom. His kingdom was entered by crossing the river [[Styx]], ferried across by [[Charon]] (pronounced Karon). The nether side of the river was guarded by [[Cerebus]], the three headed dog defeated by [[Heracles]] (or [[Hercules]] as the Romans refered to him).
