|Role||God of Wealth|
Plutus is the God of wealth who was worshiped by the Romans and Greeks. Plutus appears as a living golden statue with multiple arms and several blue gems in different parts of his body. He is widely worshiped by the ghosts condemned to the fourth Circle of Hell, Greed. Though he is imprisoned as a large statue, he still retains some of his godly powers. He is able to create and destroy golden blocks by firing beams from his eyes. As the player passes by him, he utters the phrase "Papé Satàn, papé Satàn aleppe."
Plutus is a puzzle involving four rotating pillars, that are all slowly dissolving the longer they are not within his sight. Move the rotate enough times so that 3 pillars appear, then rotate backwars until the pillar with a back part to it is closest to the Plutus platform and is not blocking the way. The picture on the right shows what they should look like.
- In Roman mythology, Plutus (also known as Ploutos in Greek myth) was personified as the God of Wealth.
- In "The Inferno", Lucifer placed Plutus at the entrance to the fourth circle of Hell, to guard over those damned for the sin of Greed. As Dante and Virgil pass, he is heard babbling his phrase "Papé Satàn, papé Satàn aleppe" which is the opening line of Canto VII. Modern commentators on the Inferno view it as some kind of demonic invocation, or prayer to Satan as to imply Plutus is thanking Satan for the riches and wealth.
