Hades, though he’s often seen as evil or scary, is not a bad or wicked god; he just has a very unpopular job, and is often bitter towards his brothers, Zeus and Poseidon, for “taking all the good stuff for themselves” (i.e., the sky and the sea, respectively).

Hades is described as a god with albino white skin, intense black eyes that were either the eyes of a genius or a madman, having a mesmerizing charisma and shoulder-length black hair. In The Demigods Files, he is described as having a beard. He often wears black silk robes with wicked souls threaded into the cloth as a form of eternal punishment.

In battle, the Lord of the Dead wears imposing black armor with a blood-red cape and his terrifying helm. He arms himself with both his two-pronged staff and his mighty sword.
