Spotlight: Cerberus

Meet the Cerberus. This ghastly looking animal is a three-headed dog. With vicious teeth and snakes for a tail, this creature would not be one you would want to meet in a dark alley. The Cerberus is the watch dog of the underworld, essentially making him Hades pet. The three heads of the Cerberus represents the past, present, and future. Some believe the three heads represent birth, youth, and old age.  However, one thing is certain about the Cerberus, each of the three heads crave only live meat. Cerberus would watch the entrance, not allowing any of Hades' subjects to leave. The wild Cerberus was captured by Hercules in the last of his 12 labors. Cerberus is also a character in Ancient Quest. In Chapter 7, Johnny fights the Cerberus, along with a Chimera and cyclops.
