The Greek God Hades
Hades is one of the children born of the Titans who ruled over the world in the time when Gods and other supernatural beings roamed the earth and the heavens. As one of the first generation of Gods, Hades had a number of siblings. His sisters were Hestia, Hera, and Demeter, while Poseidon and Zeus were his only brothers. His parents were Chronus and Rhea, the two ruling Titans. In the war that took place between the Titans and the younger gods, the younger generation of Gods won, and the three brothers decided they should evenly divide the rule over the three realms of air, sea and underworld between themselves. Poseidon became the God of the seas, Zeus the God of the skies (and King of the Gods), and Hades became the God and ruler of the underworld.
