Really cool idea.
Hades is not death, he is the underground. Just happens that where Greeks
thought the afterlife was.
After they defeated Chronos, their father; Zeus, Poseidon, and Hades spilt
the planet four ways. They left one forth to Gia, the earth, their mother; which
was the overland.
Hades = Man/Earth
Demeter could be earth, as in nature (plants mostly), Gia would be a better
Thanatos was death; whose twin brother was Hypnos, sleep. They were usually
show as young men, one with a set of black wings, the other a set of white
wings. Thanatos had no children. Hypnos had three sons: Morpheus, who brought
dreams to men; Phobetor, who brought dreams to plants; and Phantasos who
brought dreams to inanimate objects.
They all lived underworld, with Nos, the night. She was the mother of
Thanatos and Hypno. One of the poems describes her by Zeus reaction to her, that
even the mighty Zeus was in awe of the night.
I always loved the imagery and metaphor in that particular set of mythical
Cloven Fruit Games
just for fun....the greek gods and goddesses
Aphrodite = Woman/Love
Apollo = Man/Sun
Ares = Man/War
Artemis = Woman/Moon
Athena = Woman/War
Demeter = Woman/Earth
Hades = Man/Death
Poseidon = Man/Water
Zeus = Man/Air
