Half an Underworld God

He is only half-there, having one eye, one ear, one arm and one leg. You stand half a chance of being taken to the Underworld if you meet him as he has to hop after you and seize you with half a mouth.

We’re sorry but we can only give him fifty percent approval. He’s a bit half-hearted.
