Transcript of Hephaestus: The God of Fire and Blacksmiths

Hephaestus The God of Fire and Blacksmiths The Story of my Birth Hera was furious that Zeus gave birth to Athena without needing her help. To get revenge she decided to have a child on her own. That child was me, but when I was born I was ugly and had a limp. She was so displeased with this she threw me off Mount Olympus. I crash landed on the island of Lemnos, when I landed I broke my legs and became lame. Zeus wanted me on Mount Olympus because he saw how great I was with metal working. He sent Dionysus to come and get me. After making me drunk with wine he brought me to Mount Olympus. I am in charge of all of the metal workings for the gods. I created Zeus master lighting bolt, Poseidon's trident and Hades bident. I am also in charge of fire and all the blacksmiths of the world. The cyclops are my helpers and were the ones who found the enchanted gold I used for many things. I gave Athena a new set of arms and made a golden shield for Heracles. I made the suit of amour for Achilles when he fought in the Trojan War. I am related to Hera because she is my mom. I am related to Zeus, Poseidon and Hades because they are my uncles. Demeter and Hestia are my aunts. Ares is my brother and Eileithyia is my sister. Athena, Artemis, Hermes, Apollo and Dionysus are my cousins. Aphrodite is my wife who I was forced to marry. One story that sickens me is when my wife cheated on me with that meat head Ares. They had been sneaking around secretly dating. One day Helios the sun god caught them on a date. he told me and I devised a plan to catch them in the act. They were in bed together and I threw a net on them. I displayed them to the other gods and goddesses. I said I would not free them until Ares payed me an adulterers fee. Poseidon payed it off for them and we to this day are still unhappily married. I made a golden throne for Hera that was really a trap. It was my way of saying throwing me off Olympus was a bad idea. As soon as she sat down invisible fetters trapped her in the chair. I kept her trapped for 1,000 years before letting her free. King Midas was a noble man who was kind and just to his people. I gave him the power to turn everything gold. When he turned everything gold including his daughter I took away the power and everything went back to normal. I never made the mistake of giving people powers again. My sacred animal is a donkey

My symbol of power is my hammer

The zone that I rule is the island of Lemnos my true home
