Character Info

Persephone is the Greek goddess of Springtime growth and fertility, known to the Romans as Proserpina. Upon marrying Hades, she becomes queen of the Underworld, and goddess of the changing seasons.

Persey is the beloved eldest child of Demeter--goddess of plant life and agriculture. (Her father is Zeus, god of the sky and king of deities.)
