Daughter of Demeter, beloved of Hades. He kidnapped her and took her to his Under-Earth Realm, where she pined for the sun and
the sky. Her mother searched over all the land for her and, not finding her, withdrew Her Attribute from the land, causing barreness and destruction.
Zeus intervened and it was dicovered where Persephone had been taken. She could not be released, however, because she had tasted some
nourishment, a single pomagranate seed. Nevertheless an arrangement was worked out whereby She might visit Upper-Earth for half a year. Her
movements henceforth herald the coming of Summer and Winter.
