What it is:

Greed is the desire for material wealth or gain, ignoring the realm of the spiritual. It is also called Avarice or Covetousness.

Why you do it:

You live in possibly the most pampered, consumerist society since the Roman Empire.

Your punishment in Hell will be:

You'll be boiled alive in oil. Bear in mind that it's the finest, most luxurious boiling oil that money can buy, but it's still boiling.

Associated symbols & suchlike:

Greed is linked with the frog and the color yellow.

The Travelers' Guide to Hell (ISBN 1860119107) says Greed is ruled by the celestial sign of Mercury.
