Who is Hephaestus?

Posted by: Tilly Greene

 Temple of Hephaestus and Ancient Agora in Athens, Greece

Let me back up.

The Olympians, took control from the Titans and have ruled from Mount Olympus ever sense.  They are twelve Greek gods and goddesses who do what they want, who they want to do it with, however they want to do it – no questions asked.   While the list shifts around depending on who is making it, the classical group remains: Zeus, Hera, Poseidon, Demeter, Hestia, Aphrodite, Apollo, Ares, Artemis, Athena, Hephaestus and Hermes. 

Hephaestus, God of the Forge, Master of FireAs a member of this exclusive group, Hephaestus has titles like God of the Forge, Master of Fire, but in reality, his sphere of influence is much wider.  He also oversees technology, blacksmiths, craftsmen, artisans and volcanoes.

Every day is physically demanding for Hephaestus and he has a seriously hot body to match, although it isn’t perfect.  He is lame and walks with a stick.  This happened from mistreatment by his mother when he was a baby, but he was able to get his revenge later on with a special throne he made. 

{Hmmm, special throne, could be this comes in to play in a different situation.}

Cast Iron Statue for 1904 St. Louis World FairAnyway, yes, he is absolutely sexy – in fact, my favorite picture of himself [because it showcases his buns of steel or iron in this case] is from a statue built for the 1904 World Fair in St. Louis.  It now resides in the Red Mountain, Birmingham, Alabama.

He isn’t all about work, there have been many women who have mattered to him in the past and as a result he has children, about twenty four.  However, this is the one area in his life that causes him problems.  Actually, the most difficult thing he has to deal with is his wife, Aphrodite.  She cheats on him with any pretty boy with a prick between his legs and he is fed up with the humiliation it causes him.  Since birth he has had to work hard for his peers respect and what she was doing went against this need of his.  Well, no more.  The time has arrived for him to do something about it and he has a plan. It’s going to be his way or he’ll walk away.

    Ooh.. I do love that ‘buns of steel’ photo. And I thought I was the only one pervy enough to look at statue’s buns! 😆
