A child of Hades?

Post  Mazu Sakura on Thu Nov 14, 2013 1:54 pm

Has anyone ever heard of Hades (or Pluto) having a child? I know that He was said to be Infertile but is there any where that He is said to have any Children???

Whoever told you that Pluto infertile was certainly ignorant of much mythology.

First off, the name Pluto/Πλοῦτος/Πλούτων means 'prosperous', 'fertile' or 'abundant'. Pluto is a deity of the earth, and the life thereupon.

In mainstream mythology, Pluto is the father of the Furies, while in the Orphic religion, in which Pluto plays a somewhat more significant role, he is the father of two deities unique to Orphism: Zagreus-Eubuleus, a centrally important deity in Orphism, the deity of the higher soul, as well as Meilinoë, the goddess of the lower soul.
