Cerberus

Ericson Kuo

Cerberus is a Greek mythical creature. He is Hade’s three headed dog and the guardian of the Underworld. He has a serpent’s tail, a mane of snakes, and lion’s claws. Cerberus guards the dead from escaping and the living from entering. According to Greek mythology, he is the off spring of Typhon, the most feared son of Gaia, and Euchida, the snake nymph who is half-woman, half-snake. He is also said to be related to Hydra, the many-headed serpent monster.

Cerberus is a hellhound, which are dogs of the devils. Hellhounds look like black dogs that has red, or in rare cases, yellow eyes. He is a very rare kind with three heads. Every hellhound will from a mindbond or choose a devil at an early age. Then, they have to take
an oath saying that they will never separate. Cerberus chose Hades. Hellhounds have certain abilities, for example, they are heat-proof and some very skillful hellhounds learn to cast fire spells. Like demons, all hellhounds have to learn demonic language.
