    Prometheus is the patron of humanity it Greek Legend. He is a son of Iapetus the Titan by Clymene or Themis. His brothers were Atlas, Epimetheus (hindsight) and Menoetius. His paternal grandparents were Uranus and Gaia. His maternal grandparents were either Oceanus and Tethys (parents of Clymene) Uranus and Gaea (parents of Themis). Prometheus gifted humanity with fire and other civilizing arts.

    Because fire was a privilege of the Gods, Prometheus was punished by Zeus, chained t a rock in the Caucasus. He was visited daily by one of Zeus' eagles which ate his liver. Being immortal, Prometheus regenerated at night and was still alive to face the torture of the next day.
