Hercules, aided by his best friend Iolaus, goes on many adventures helping people and slaying mythical monsters using his half-god strength.
Hades is a young man, if appearances are to be trusted. Nevertheless, he has the in all aspects grave responsibility to judge the afterlives of the dead of the Greco-Roman culture. He is very good at routine work, and manages his duties efficiently and with integrity. In contrast, he doesn’t cope well with crises, being just as likely to do nothing, as to ask someone, anyone, for help, or resort to childish outbursts. He is also strangely uninterested in other underworlds.
Death, Celesta, is his sister, and the two of them share a deep emotional bond. He is also very fond of his part-time partner Persephone, but he isn’t very good at expressing his feelings for either of these.
Hades seems to one of the respectable members of the Olympian Pantheon, until he attempts to murder Xena's daughter Eve, who is prophecied to bring about the Twilight of the Gods. Before this Hades would help Xena in some sticky situations, even calling her "old friend" before he attacked her, saying it was for the greater good. Xena eventually kills Hades with her fire-breathing technique after being imbued with the power to kill Gods. It is unknown if anyone else took the throne of the Underworld.
He was played by Erik Thomson and Stephen Lovatt.
