Zagreus smirked and gave Hades a triumphant look very quickly before returning his attention to Persephone.

"I think it would be easiest to begin with a little bit of spying. There are hundreds of creatures that prowl the caverns of the Underworld. Thanatos won't pay any attention to a scorpion nesting in the rocks. I can find out what he wants, who his allies are, and what he's planning to do next."

He scoffed, then pondered. He looked at his Queen, then nodded. "That is actually a good plan." He said, running a hand through his beard. "I see you are good for something."

Persephone closed her eyes. It did no good to step between them. None to referee. Her son was of an age where he thought he knew his mind and place, and herhusband believed differently.

Triumph set against scorn, a healthy mixing of arrogance in both. It tainted the air, until it was all she could do to not scream at the two. She'd schooled the faint tremble in her hand as she took a sip.

She turned and her eyes were distant. It was the only way she could keep either from knowing what their cold war did to her. "That is a sound plan, my son. Take to your shapes, and bring news back tome." She said softly.

Zagreus's eyes shifted from his usual somber gray to onyx black and he turned on his heel to face Hades.

"The Orphic Hymns still invoke my name, father. Don't forget that you were feared in ancient Greece as ruler of the Underworld but I was worshiped by mortals for being the very reason they're alive today. You're just the boogyman compared to me. Do you remember the Alcmeonis? You know, one of my earlier appearances in mortal literature. How did that line go again? Oh, yes, I remember now. 'Mistress Earth and Zagreus who art above all other Gods.' No wonder that book was practically destroyed. No doubt either you or Zeus were responsible. But the fact remains that the mortals seem to think I'm good enough. You're lucky I'm even offering to help you!"

His fists were clenched tightly and his skin felt feverish even without touching him. Small tufts of smoke escaped his mouth as he released yet another enraged rant, signaling the growing fire in his belly. He calmed himself enough to give an apologetic glance to his mother without that fury in his eyes before shifting into a horrible creature like a sharp-fanged lizard with feathered wings and taking off, leaving the throne room behind.

((The tale of Zagreus goes that Zeus took the form of a serpent and laid down with Persephone and she bore Zagreus. A jealous Hera cast him down to Tartarus for the Titans to destroy. They distracted him with toys and attempted to devour him, but he changed between forms of many animals to escape. His last form was that of a bull as he attempted to fight back and run free, but the Titans grabbed hold of him and tore him to pieces and devoured him. All that was left was his heart. Zeus discovered this crime and hurled a thunderbolt, killing the Titans and turning them to ash. From the ashes of the Titans, mixed with the divine flesh they had eaten, man was made. This has always been used to explain the balance of good and evil in humankind, due to the divinity of Zagreus and the maliciousness of the Titans. Persephone saved the still-beating heart of the immortal Zagreus and Zeus implanted it within a mortal woman through which he was reborn again. Some accounts say he was reassembled by Demeter. Further accounts claim Hades as Zagreus' father, since Hades is sometimes referred to as Zeus Katchthonios or "Underground Zeus". As I have my character's backstory now, Persephone used her healing abilities to revive Zagreus rather than a mortal woman being involved or using a different vegetation Goddess when Persephone works just fine and makes sense seeing as she's his mother.))

Hades' stormy eyes watched the boy leave. They were filled with rage. "Insolent child!!!" He said, sitting on his throne.

Persephone took her throne once more. There was little she could say. The spring goddess turned her gaze inward and sat quietly. The fighting had to stop.
