1: Hephaestus | Jena Taylor Mrs. Corbett English 9 12-6-10
2: Hephaestus was not one to live in a palace, he built an underground workshop and spent most of his time working undisturbed. His mother, Hera, abandoned him and he felt very guilty he did not claim his mother he went around saying "i have no mother"!!!
3: His creations were truly marvels of function and beauty and are feature in many of the stories of Greek mythology. They included: the silver bows and arrows of Apollo and Artemis, the golden chariot of Apollo that pulled the sun across the sky, the shield of Achilles, Athena's spear, Hercules' breastplate, the Aegis and scepter of Zeus, and the battle armor of the Olympian armies, and the palaces of all the deities, complete with unbreakable locks. In addition to all of this, Hephaestus is credited with the invention of the three-legged stool and the worlds first robots. Not all of Hephaestus' power were invested in the tools he created. As a god of fire, he had immense powers like the other gods. When the river god Scamander attempted to drown Achilles, Hephaestus used his fire to dry up the river and saved his life!
4: Zeus arranged Aphrodite and him to be married.....but she had many affairs and only made him miserable | He spent many hours in his workshop, alone, working! | Everyone of the Olympians liked him but he was not involved in any of their plots because he preferred to be alone in his workshop working
