Demeter is the Olympian goddess of earth fertility, agriculture, harvest. She is the mother of Persephone. Demeter did not approve of Persephone's relationship with Hades. When Hades kidnapped and took Persephone into the Underworld Demeter went somewhat mad. The seasons on Earth were thrown into chaos and an ill-timed winter killed many crops and caused starvation and hardship for many mortals. To stop this, Hercules agreed to travel to the Underworld and bring her back. The hero was able to negotiate a deal wherein Persephone would spend half the year in the Underworld with Hades and half with Demeter. Demeter then agreed to restore the seasons to their normal cycle.

Demeter's ultimate fate is not known, as she was not seen among the Olympians confronting Xena during the Twilight of the Gods. (Xena: Warrior Princess: "Motherhood")
