Hades

 

Hades, the god of the underworld, realizes that a group of peopl

e have past many hardships and obstacles and are on their way to attack his territory, the land of the dead. Hades believes that as humanitys prime benefactor, Prometheus must shoulder the blame. Therefore, he releases the latter, urging him to make humans stop. Following various incidents, humans reveal how catastrophic wars and bloodsheds made them leave their own world on earth and head to the land of the dead. Regretting the favors he has done mankind, Prometheus chains himself on mountains again and laments having brought them the gift of fire, which resulted in their evolution; an evolution that led to nothing more than destruction.
