Background Information : Persephone was the daughter of Demeter (the goddess of Harvest) and Zues (the mighty king of Olympians). Kora was Persephone maiden name, it meant young maiden. She had two other sisters, Athena and Aphrodite. Persephone was outside playing in the harvest when she was abducted by Haides. He took her to the Underworld to be his queen.

Weaknesses


Not able to escape the influence of an over protective mother. Torn by her loyalties she tries to please everybody.
Beauty so ravishing it attracts Hades' unwanted attention.


Myth

It was like any other day in the land of Olympus, where Persephone lived. Persephone was playing with friends upon the hillside as her mother sat near by. Then the worst thing of all happened, Persephone was kidnapped by Haides and took to the underworld to be his queen. Demeter, Persephone's mother, was so upset that she stopped the harvesting and wouldn't make anything grow until Zues would bring Persephone back.

Poem

Queen of Dead

Goddess of the underworld,

But was taken away as a young beautiful girl,

Being wanted by everybody,

but only being searced for by her mother,

Called Proserphien by Romans,

Meaning destroys the light,

Being called Kore in the underworld,
Not being special just a simple girl,
Persophone was taken as a young beautiful girl.
