No one can go to the Underworld and come back alive!
Your crazy to think that!
Death shall never look upon me for I shall go to Lord Hades to claim my life to be immortal.
Pffft! I can easily defeat this monster!
Lord Hades! I come before you to accept a challenge. If I win, death can never seek me. If you win, my soul is yours, and I shall forever be serving you.
HA!! How can a weak mortal like you defeat a immortal god like me?
Long ago, there was a young man named Ephasus. He was well known throughout his village for being very conceited and stubborn.
How dare you insult me like that? Fine! I, God of the Underworld, will indeed grant you your wish!
Lord Hades, you think I came here without knowing that? I am skillful in swordplay. And I can prove it to you by throwing you into the pits of Tartarus along with Kronus!
Arriving at the Underworld was easy. All he had to do was follow the River of Styx, which took him straight to the Underworld. He fought monsters here and there, but they were no threat to him.
I WILL FIND A WAY OUT AND MAKE SURE YOU DESERVE A PUNISHMENT TOO HADES!!!
Ephasus knew that Hades would underestimate him. But Ephasus was determined to prove to Hades and win the battle.
Insulted, Hades had cursed Ephasus to live as a beast imprisoned under hollowed-out mountains for eternity.
Sometimes Ephasus would find a way to the outside world, but couldn't get out because of the magical barriers Hades had put around the mountains. Some mortals had caught sight of Ephasus, and stories about dragons had passed on.
Ephasus still remains to be the same beast in the mountains, still not finding a way out. Pounding and scratching at the walls where he was imprisoned, he causes tons of rocks to fall from the heights of the mountains.
