Collect 10,000+ souls and leave life behind, you’re in the underworld – Hades domain. Hades was the Greek god of the dead and the dying, and today’s topic on #ImmortalMonday. As the god of death he oversaw funeral rituals and rites. He maintained the underworld, caring for those that had passed on, making sure they stayed where they belonged. Nothing chapped his hid more than escapees. And don’t get him started on people who attempted to steal souls from his domain.

The war would eventually put his brother, Zeus, in the leading position of power. The brothers divided the ruling domains between them, Hades gaining control of one-third of the share.
