Persephone Bio

I am Persephone, the Greek goddess of the Underworld. My mother is Demeter, the goddess of the harvest, and my father is Zeus, the king of all gods. When I was little, I was abducted by Hades, the god of the underworld, to be his bride. My mother was devastated when I was gone and in her fury did not let the land grow until I came back. Zeus finally stepped in because my mother was literally killing all humans to release me, but I had already eaten pomegranate seeds from the Underworld and was bound there. After lots of debating, Zeus finally made a deal with Hades that I would be with my mother 3/4ths of the year, and the other fourth I would spend as Hades's wife. For that quarter of the year called winter, Demeter lets nothing grow. But when I am with her, spring comes and life comes back to Earth.


  1. Technically,you are with your mother 3/4 of the year, because winter is three months, not four.

  2. Hey it's Aphrodite! You are very pretty, like me. It would be awesome if we got to hangout! So sorry about what happened to you.
