Hephaestus (Greek): The god of volcanoes & fire - the blacksmith's fire, patron to all craftsmen working with metals. Known as the lame god: conceived only by his mother Hera, he was born weak & crippled to be thrown from Mt. Olympus by his thought to be father Zeus. Aphrodite was his wife.  Known for making Zeus's thunderbolts & sceptre, Athena's shield, arrows for Eros, Helios's chariot, the invincible armour for Achilles & for forming the first woman out of clay who's name was Pandora.
