Persephone became queen of the underworld after she was abducted by and married to Hades, and is sometimes feared because of this. In the underworld she oftentimes served as a protectress when she helped many heroes escape the underworld when they found themselves in Hades territory. She is the daughter of Demeter, who caused drought and death on the Earth when her daughter was taken by Hades. The gods stepped in, and a compromise was reached where Persephone is allowed to return to the surface to be with her mother for part of the year, initiating spring and growth and renewal, and she returns to Hades in the Underworld at the end of the harvest- leaving Demeter alone and returning the Earth to the grey, lifeless slumber of winter.
