Hades is described as a god who feels like “an outcast from his family” and “a misunderstood genius” who harbors a grudge for past wrongs. Meanwhile, Hephaestus “became disabled when he was thrown off Mount Olympus as a child.” He still has legendary strength and his “capacity for kindness and mercy distinguishes him from his brothers and sisters in the world of the gods”. The two actors inherit their characters respectively from Steve Coogan who played Hades and Conrad Coates who played Hephaestus in the films Percy Jackson & the Olympians – The Lightning Thief And Percy Jackson & the Olympians – Sea of ​​Monsters.
