Persephone is a young goddess who was taken to the underworld or "kidnapped" by Hades to be the queen of the underworld. She was taken when she was playing in the meadow, when the ground opened and Hades appeared. She refused to eat something because, if you do you may never leave the underworld. She is beautiful, brave and loving. I would respect her because she is a kind soul and wants equality for all.
My opinion on Persephone is that she is a great god. That is because is spreads happiness every where she goes. That is why Hades chose her to be the queen of the Underworld. So she could "lighten" things up down there. She is great.
