Hephaestos ( Greek: Ἥφαιστος, Latin: Vulcan ) is the god of fire and forge. He is the son of Zeus and Hera. Some say that Hera, upset by having an ugly child, flung him from Mount Olimpus into the sea, breaking his legs. He is the smith and armorer of the gods and other heroes like Achilles. He uses a volcano as his forge.


Married to Aphrodite, but she doesn't love him because he is deformed and, she's cheating on him with Ares. He had a daughter named Pandora.
His symbols are an axe, a hammer and a flame.
