There is no pain in the underworld, but neither is there any joy. Silence reins there as the dead only whisper. Hades and Persephone live in a palace, and with them the Erinnyes, Moirae, Thanatos and Hypnos. There also the lands of Tartarus (punishment) and Elysium (rewards) to which the dead may pass. They may also drink of the waters of Lethe which brings forgetfulness.

The underworld existed so that the dead would have an afterlife. The quality of this afterlife varied. In general it seemed gloomy and depressing in the main areas, however as there was no joy or pain (both springing from life) the dead didn't seem to mind. Later a set of judges was added, who dispatched the dead to specialised areas (and which heavily influenced Christian conceptions of Heaven, Hell, and Purgatory).
