Prometheus (Name meaning: Forethought)
Prometheus was the god of craftsmen and fire, able to see the future. In some legends, he was accredited with the creation of humans. He taught them many things, such as astronomy, medicine, and navigation.
In fear of being overpowered, Zeus wanted to exterminate humans from the earth. Prometheus was kindhearted and pitying, and created a plot with the humans. When the humans stingily sacrificed the most worthless parts of an ox, Zeus was infuriated and withheld fire from them so that they would not be able to eat cooked meat. Prometheus filched back fire for mankind, which enraged Zeus. His punishment was to send Pandora into the world to introduce hardship and pain, and chain Prometheus to a boulder, where a bird daily fed on his liver. The liver grew again every night because of his immortality; it seemed he was doomed to eternal suffering, until one day, Zeus freed Prometheus after he told Zeus that Achilles was predestined to become his nemesis.
