He was also born in the Diktaion cave along with his brothers Poseidon and Zeus. Hades parents were Cronus and Rhea. His attributes were helmets, metals, jewels, and the bird tipped sceptre.
Hades I chose this picture of Hades because it really shows all parts of him, the death, helmets, jewels, and evil. This picture portrays strength, and evil.

Especially him standing on a pile of skulls, portrays the god of death part.

Poseidon I chose this picture of Poseidon because it shows him in his godly actions and he is carrying his trademark trident. This image portrays strength, ruling, and discipline. This image spoke to me because it shows him punishing humans surrounded by the vast roaring sea. He looks so powerful and stern. He must have been angry for some purpose, because this picture is very intense.
Poseidon I chose this picture of Posiedon because it shows him in a regal chariot with horses(which he also ruled). This image portrays dictatorship, royalty, and obedience. This image spoke to me because the horses seem to be in some type of trance. One that forces them to obey their ruler, Posiedon. Poseidon obviously took advantage of his powers, and you can see that in this photo.
