Heracles is a demon in the series.

History[]

Heracles, born Alcaeus or Alcides, was a mythological Greek hero and demigod, known for his incredible strength and courage. He was the son of Zeus and the mortal Alcmene, foster son of Amphitryon and great-grandson/half-brother (as they are both sired by the god Zeus) of Perseus. He was the greatest of the Greek heroes, a paragon of masculinity, the ancestor of royal clans who claimed to be Heracleidae and a champion of the Olympians against the chthonic monsters.

Hera resented him and made him mortal, and would eventually drive him mad and murder his children. To atone for his sins, he was assigned 12 labors by his cousin Eurystheus. He had also take part in many other adventures, such as the Argonauts and at Gigantomachy, where he assisted the Olympians in order to defeat the Gigantes. Heracles was granted his place among the gods for his accomplishments upon his death.

Extraordinary strength, courage and ingenuity, with both males and females were among the characteristics commonly attributed to him. Heracles used his wits on several occasions when his strength did not suffice, such as when laboring for King Augeas of Elis, wrestling the giant Antaeus, or tricking Atlas into taking the sky back onto his shoulders. Together with Hermes, he was the patron and protector of gymnasia and palaestrae.

His iconographic attributes are the lion skin and the club. These qualities did not prevent him from being regarded as a playful figure who used games to relax from his labors and played a great deal with children. By conquering dangerous archaic forces he is said to have "made the world safe for mankind" and to be its benefactor.

Heracles was an extremely passionate and emotional individual, capable of doing both great deeds for his friends (such as wrestling with Thanatos on behalf of Prince Admetus, who had regaled Heracles with his hospitality, or restoring his friend Tyndareus to the throne of Sparta after he was overthrown) and being a terrible enemy who would wreak horrible vengeance on those who crossed him, as Augeas, Neleus and Laomedon all found out to their cost.

In Roman mythology, he was known as the Roman hero Hercules.
