Cerberus Speaks.
All stories are unique in their own way, but our story is in a category all to its own. We are Cerberus. The three-headed hound. Many stories have been written of us, but no one has asked us to give our story. This is a true account.

My account is of the past for the head to the farthest left only speaks of the past. Our birth was considered something of a miracle. Some people called us the eighth wonder of the world, which infuriated Hercules. He believed he should have been named the eighth wonder of the world for completing his twelve labors.

In his jealousy and anger, he decided to imprison us in Hades. And so we were sent to that dark gloomy place where we remained for a very long time. During our imprisonment, Hercules began a campaign of slandering our good name to the point that people only think of a creature of horror at the mention of our name.

We were freed by Jason, leader of the Argonauts. We persuaded him to never speak of this adventure. Our fierce countenance can be quite persuasive.

After leaving Hades we went to Delphi where we became known by another name: the Oracle of Delphi. The Oracle was never seen. Only the voice was heard. We became known through out the world. Our stay there came to an end after a massive earthquake.

After Delphi, we found the Fates: Clotho, Lachesis, and Atropos and took their place. We have been waiting ever since for our master, Hades, to come. He finally did.

My account is of the present. My head is the middle one and speaks only of the present. Very few people know that we are female, and our news is fantastic. We gave birth today to three pups who each have six heads. We call them 666.

My account is of the future. My head is the one on the far right and only speaks of the future. Our pups will grow big and strong. We warn you now that anyone who does not have our mark 666 will be eaten by our pups, so don't delay get marked today.

And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a MARK in their right hand, or in their foreheads: and that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the MARK, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six. Rev. 13:16-18

And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the MARK of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone. Rev. 19:20
