The Classical Gods of Ancient Greece

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.
