Hades (ハーデス, Hādesu) is a Persona from Persona 2: Innocent Sin.


Hades, the unseen one, is known as the king and supreme ruler of the underworld originating from the myths of ancient Greece. Born from the union of Chronos and Rhea, he later participated in the war against the Titans and successfully won along their siblings. While Zeus and Poseidon ruled the sky and the sea territory respectively, he claimed the darkest place, located insight the earth, where the light of sun is not allowed to take place, which is the realm of the dead (although he's not the god of death himself, as the role would be taken by Thanatos). His duty subsequently made him often unable to leave his own world and therefore, he is not considered as one of twelve olympians, but still referred as one of the principal gods. He has many assistants and servants, among others are the judges who judge the human soul (Minos, Rhadamanthys, and Aiacos), Cerberus the guardian of the underworld, and the Moirae who control over fate. One of the most famous myth mentioned in history is the abduction of Persephone, goddess of spring, where Hades kidnapped her. Demeter demanded her daughter to be released and he did, but not before giving the pomegranate fruit to Persephone, which made her the queen of underworld, therefore every half year must she return to him. Hades also appears in the tale of Orpheus and Eurydice.

He has immunity against water, holy and dark attack types, and a weakness toward fire attack types.
