Persephone is a tall, probably one of the tallest characters in the fanfic as a whole, slender, curvillious and young-looking woman in her mid-twenties with pale skin, pitch black long smooth hair and supernatural golden eyes that gives her a chilling aura. According to ichijou, she also has fangs instead of teeth, and her tongue is split like a snake's.
Formally, Persephone use white pimp-up dresses with that pinpoints her chest and curves. However, during her stays in the human world, she use normal formal wear.
The calmest of Alice's friends, Persephone usually adopts a groggy, calm and slow speech patern, as she was constantly drunk. She's extremely passive and quiet for her own good, and sometimes can fall asleep on the most innaproppriated places.
She's extremely in love and loyal to her husband Hades, constantly reminding of him and thinking about him. Meanwhile, Hades claims that she's the only thing in the world he loves, and their relationship is usually lampshaded by Ichijou that is similar to Cohen and Alice's regarding loyalty. The only moments that Persephone can lose her composture is when Hades is either insulted or compared to his brothers.
Ichijou claims that she might suffer from Stockholm Syndrome being familiar of the circunstances leading to her marriage to the God-King of the Greek Underworld.
Persephone is the daughter of Zeus and the harvest goddess Demeter, being herself the goddess of springtime and vegetation. One day, completely in love with her, Hades kidnapped her and took her to the underworld to make her his bride. Such action caused the wrath of Demeter, who used her powers to cease fruitation and make all the plants and grains to die. After years of starvation and human deaths, Zeus commanded Hades to return Persephone. However, since she already tasted food from the underworld, she has to return there every one thirds of the year, thus causing the winter season.
It is implied in-story that Persephone ended up developing feelings for Hades during her stays in the underworld. She's, however, unable to produce children with him due to their conflicting elements.
