In Saint Seiya, the kingdom of the dead world presents itself as a gloomy and unhealthy (finally, is what we want ...) in particular as well in which the souls fall. The design of your tenants surplis also reinforces this idea, except the armor of Hades, that apart from the color, looks more like an angel (especially the wings). The Saint Seiya Meikai term simply means "Underworld" unlike the Greek underworld is broken down between Limbo, Tartarus and Elison, the underworld Meikai includes all that is shown in the manga, including Yomotsu Hirasaka, scene of the battle between Shiryu and Deathmask.
The underworld was created by Hades to forever punish humans for their crimes.

The spectra are unaffected and may enter and leave at the discretion of Hades, at least not while Athena has been sealed and locked.
