Hades is the lord of the dead and ruler of the nether world, which
is referred to as the domain of Hades or, by transference, as Hades
alone. He is the son of Cronus and Rhea. The roman god Pluto is
identical to Hades.
He ruled the underworld together with Persephone, whom he abducted
from the upperworld. Hades possesses the riches of the earth, and is
referred to as "the Rich One".
