Thanatos is the god of death and the lieutenant of Hades.
Thanatos was called the god of peaceful death while the Keres were his antithesis as the spirits of violent death. Once he was tricked by Sisyphus which was one of the reasons why the mortal was condemned to Tartarus. When Thanatos came to take Sisyphus to the Underworld, he chained the god to a rock and effectively stopped death until Ares freed him. He also wrestled with Heracles for the life of Alcestis, the wife of King Admetus. He lost the match, bringing the queen back to life.
