Persephone is one of the playable Gods in SMITE.

Lore[edit | edit source]

Persephone is the Goddess of Vegetation and the Harvest. Daughter of Zeus and Demeter, the others gods often felt fit to decide her fate for her. Demeter enrolled her in helping with her Mysteries while Zeus took it upon himself to give her away. Hades, her husband to be, came up from the underworld and took her away. Demeter, saddened by the loss of her daughter and helper, wept and refused to continue bringing life to the earth. Cornered by a dying world, Zeus forced Hades and Persephone to part.

Before leaving the underworld Hades offered her a seed of a Pomegranate grown in the underworld. Persephone was clever. She understood what was being offered. Those who eat the food of the underworld are bound to it and must return. Hades was offering her a choice. A choice she was happy to accept. Every six months Persephone leaves the underworld, soothing Demeter's grief and bringing life back to the world.

The time has now come for Persephone, Queen of the Underworld, to return and take her throne besides Hades. She has seen the gods struggle against themselves at the expense of those around them. She can no longer watch as droves of mortal souls arrive; their lives cut short while they struggled for each and every victory as the gods they pray to cause their suffering. Soon all gods will see why she is called 'Clever Persephone'.

Abilities[edit | edit source]

Passive - Pomegranate Seeds
Persephone gains Pomegranate Seeds when her Harvest plants wither. If she has more than 25 Seeds she can spend these to resist death, continuing to fight at full mana for 8s but dealing 60% reduced damage and moving 20% slower. This can be cancelled before the revive occurs. Additional seeds are sold when she enters the fountain for 3 gold a seed. Persephone can hold 100 Seeds. Notes:
 Bullet.png Execute effects will bypass it, however it won't consume the seeds.
 Bullet.png Can be cancelled before it activates, preserving the seeds.

1st Ability - Bone Rush
Persephone calls forth a skeletal warrior of the underworld. This warrior charges forward 35 units or until it comes into contact with a god.

2nd Ability - Harvest
Persephone places a Skull (max 6/6/8/8/10) and can activate it with a Basic Attack to heal herself. She stores up to 6 Skulls. After 2.5s it turns into a Sprout that explodes when activated, damaging and slowing enemies. After 16s it turns into a Flower that chases down enemies when activated for 2.2s before biting them. After activation or 120s it withers. Enemies recently hit by Harvest take reduced damage from additional hits stacking 3 times. Notes:

3rd Ability - Flourish
Persephone floods the ground around her with life giving energy that propels her from the ground directly forwards or backwards; based on the direction she is moving.

Ultimate - Grasp of Death
Persephone conjures a mass of Entrapping Vines that she throws forwards, entrapping the first enemy god or wall it touches. Entrapped gods are crippled, rooted, and have reduced Attack Speed. Vines then spawn from the Entrapped target that seek nearby enemy gods. Upon finding an enemy god it binds them, crippling them and preventing them from moving away. Entrapping Vines are destroyed if hit by 5 Basic Attacks (3 if it trapped a Wall), ending all effects. Notes:
