MINOS

Greek Justice Spirit

King of Crete, and later spirit of Underworld Justice

Definitely not a God, but determined to get into the record books what with his MINOTAUR and being a love child of ZEUS. His wife was PASIPHAE and their daughter was ARIADNE. Plenty of heroic legends there.

After he died, MINOS was given a new lease of life. Sitting by the side of AEACUS and previously estranged brother RHADAMANTHUS, he gives the casting vote in tricky cases of Soul Judgment.
