Charon was an Isu, revered in Greek mythology as the ferryman of Hades who carried the souls of the dead over the river Styx.



In a simulation created by the Isu Aletheia, Charon performed his duties as the ferryman of Hades, and met the Spartan misthios Kassandra after she'd slain Cerberos. Though derisively calling her a 'fleshling', Charon was still willing to help her, and had tasks for her as well.[1]

According to Layla Hassan's "Bios of the Gods", Charon's brothers were Thanatos and Hypnos, and their father was Erebus.[2]

Legacy and Influence

It was customary for the dead to be given a coin or couple to pay Charon his fee. Kassandra offered some for Podarkes' journey at his funeral.[3]

This tradition was also observed by Pothinus, a member of the Order of the Ancients during the 1st century BCE in Egypt, placing a coin in his own mouth as the Medjay Bayek of Siwa killed him[4], as well as by Jacob Frye, a British Assassin who gave his target Philip Twopenny a coin "for the path of the dead."[5]

Both the river Styx and Charon were visually manifested in the Animus Black Room simulation of Clay Kaczmarek's memories.[6]
