The House Contractor, at the desk to the right of Lord Hades.

"Perpetually must the Underworld be maintained, for its population only grows and grows."

The House Contractor, located in the main hall of The House of Hades, is a shade given the task of restoring and repairing the Underworld by Lord Hades. It is one of the main meta progression systems in Hades (the other being the Mirror of Night.)

Zagreus may pay the Contractor Gemstones and Diamonds to add various furnishings to the House of Hades, his room, and the Underworld. Some of these furnishings can also provide Zagreus valuable assistance in his escape attempts.

The Contractor lists potential upgrades or furnishings on offer for Zagreus. Some upgrades or furnishings may require others to be purchased before they may appear.

Upgrades[edit | edit source]

These items will unlock new chambers or otherwise aid Zagreus in his escape.
