Hephaestus (Vulcan) is the god of fire, blacksmiths, stonemasons, technology, and volcanoes. Interestingly, he is also one of the very few gods who isn't a hottie. He's been called all sorts of things: short, misshapen, ugly, lame… It's enough to make a guy feel insecure. And insecure he is. His looks caused his mom, Hera, to toss him off of Mount Olympus when he was born, they caused Athena to reject his advances, and they cause his ultra-gorgeous wife, Aphrodite, to constantly cheat on him. Hephaestus may not be good looking, but he's famous for making beautiful and fabulous things. Aphrodite's girdle, Eros' bow and arrows of love, Achilles' impenetrable armor, and the sun-chariot of Helios are all the products of Hephaestus' forge.
