Your Field Guide to Spotting Prometheus

Prometheus, huh? Yeah, you should totally get some face-time with him if you have a chance. He created mankind out of clay, so he's super friendly to any human who wants to have a chat. He'll probably want to talk about when he defied Zeus by teaching humans the secret of fire. He got in mad trouble for that one—Zeus chained him to a rock and had eagles eat his liver everyday. Heracles set him free eventually, but you probably shouldn't mention it when you see him. He's still kind of sensitive about it. You can probably see why. That kind of thing has got to totally mess you up, right?
