Hades is one of the thirteen Olympians from the Percy Jackson series. At first Hades was thought to be a villain, but then it was revealed he hadn't stolen the Lightning Thief, and wasn't as evil as believed. He also helped the demi-gods in the end, and got his own cabin for his children in Camp Half-Blood. He is also the father of Nico di Angelo, Bianca di Angelo, and Hazel Levesque. However in the movie, he truly was a villain. In the first film adaption, he is portrayed by Steve Coogan.
Before the Series
Over the centuries, the Olympians moved west. During World War II, Hades' demigod children were fighting against Zeus' poseidon. The Oracle predicted that one of the children would either perserve Olympus or raze it to the ground. The gods swore on the River Styx to not father any more children. However, because Hades already had two demigod children, Zeus ordered Hades to take them to Camp Half-Blood. Hades refused in fear of his son and daughter would turn against him or be killed. In retaliation, Zeus attempted to kill the di Angelo children, but Hades protected them but he could not protect his lover, Maria.
He wished to bring her back from the dead, but he was stopped by Alecto. Hades also cursed the Oracle of Delphi to be trapped forever until he and his children were respected as heroes.
Shortly after Luke Castellan, Thalia Grace, and Annabeth Chase encountered the satyr Grover Underwood, Hades somehow discovered that Thalia was a demigod child of Zeus. Still extremely bitter at his brother for murdering his lover Maria, Hades sends the most terrifying monsters of the Underworld (including all three Furies) to destroy her. The quartet could have escaped from the monsters, except for the fact that a bloodthirsty Cyclops in Brooklyn stopped them, so that the monster army could catch up. The Cyclops chained Thalia, Luke, and Grover in the air to direct the monsters in their direction, but Annabeth managed to save them by stabbing the Cyclops in the foot. Once the quartet reached Camp Half-Blood Hill, Hades' infernal army finally caught up with them. Thalia told her friends to run to safety, while she, in an act of selfless heroism, fought Hades' army on her own. Zeus took pity on his daughter, and to prevent her soul from going to Hades, Zeus transformed Thalia into a pine tree, just as Halcyon Green had predicted to her.
