CERBERUS: LEGENDARY HELL HOUND OF THE UNDERWORLD
In ancient Greek mythology, there exists a three headed dog called Cerberus that guards the entrance to Hades, a misty and gloomy underworld in which spirits of the dead are permitted to enter but none are allowed to leave. To the Greeks, Cerberus was a monstrous three-headed dog, or "hellhound" with a serpent's tail, a mane of snakes, and a lion's claws. His three heads were thought to represent the past, the present, and the future while other sources suggest they were symbolic of birth, youth, and old age. The most potent ability of Cerberus was his look which was so dreadful that anyone who looked upon him was immediately turned into stone.
