Persephone is the Olympian Goddess of the Spring. She never makes an actual appearance aside from some minor cameos in the film, however she was intended to make a major appearance in an episode of the animated series, however all the story ideas were dropped as none of them felt appropriate for her. Persephone is the daughter of Zeus and Demeter.

Hercules (animated series)Edit

Story Idea 1Edit

In the earliest known idea Demeter (mother) and Hades (husband) would argue over who got to keep her.

Story Idea 2Edit

In another idea she was going to be a teacher at Prometheus Academy however this idea did not work out either.

TriviaEdit

  • In traditional Greek Mythology, Persephone was abducted to the Underworld by Hades and was forced to stay there as his queen. However, Zeus and Demeter made Hades agree to only keep her for 6 months out of every year and let her go for the other 6. This said to be the reason why there is a Winter season. Her Roman name is Proserpina.
