Lore Olympus Synopsis
Persephone, a 19-year-old ordinary goddess girl, is a college student and the only daughter of Demeter, the earth goddess, and well-known businesswoman. Due to an event in the past, Persephone grew up with her mother Demeter’s overprotective care.
Hades is a businessman who has undergone terrible abuse as a result of his father’s treatment of him as a disaster child in the past. He suffers from extreme public fear as a result of the trauma of the past.
One day, Persephone and Hades meet by coincidence and begin to develop affections for one other.
