I don't know if people dressed in black and cut their hair as a sign of grief during the Minoan/Mycenaean period as they did in the Classical period. They probably didn't, but in my world they are obviously doing it anyway.

Zeus and his siblings haven't been around for so very long when this comic takes place. Zeus, Hera and Poseidon are well-known to the mortals (and probably Demeter as well), but Hades is hardly known at all at this point. For one thing, he hasn't started working properly yet since he's still waiting for the cyclopes to finish his palace in the Underworld. And second, he's not exactly good at speaking for himself (The name Hades has so far never appeared in the Mycenaean Linear B tablets, by the way. I think he first appears in the texts from the Archaic period).

Then the question is what the people in Alalkomenae believe is happening after death. They probably believe that Pallas' spirit goes to the Underworld, but that there is no god who cares for the dead.
