In Greek Mythology, Persephone was the daughter of Demeter, the godess of agriculture.Persephone was also known as Persephassa, Persephatta, or Kore(Greek: κόρη, "girl, maiden" )

Persphone(or Kore) was the godess of spring.an innocent beautiful maiden, a youg girl radiating joy and happiness until the day Hades abducted her from a field in Enna, where she was picking flowers and turned her into the queen of the underworld.
Persephone was extremely unhappy in the darkness of the Underworld. She also missed her mother, Demeter, terribly, as they had such a close mother-daughter bond.
