Cerberus (originally Kerberos, Greek) is a mythological three-headed dog who guards the gates of the Underworld in order to prevent souls who have crossed beyond the river Styx from returning to the land of the living. Each of its heads is said to have a craving for live meat. In most depictions the Cerberus is said to have a mane of snakes and a snake's tail. As for its weak points, in some tales it falls easily to sleep when it hears music.
Is sometimes known as 'Hellhound'.
ケルベロス [kerberos] in Japanese.

Description: Originally watchdogs of hell who came to our land to hunt down those who turned against the king of the underworld. They were charged with the duty of catching those disloyal to their king, and branding them with their fiery horns as a mark of their betrayal. The brand carried magicks of enforced servitude, and those so marked could never leave the underworld again. Though they no longer serve their ancient master, having long since been set adrift in our world, they continue to give chase and attack with fiery horns.
