(Titan) EPIMETHEUS

Greek God of : Afterthought
Attributes :
Festival Days :
When in Rome :

The son of Iapetos and Clymene was the God of after thought. Hindsight is a wonderful thing...

Epimetheus and Prometheus were two Titans who refused to get involved in a war with the gods. This proved to be a very smart move as it spared them from the terror that is life in Tarterus, but they faced the altogether more daunting task of creating living creatures.

Epimetheus went first and got it all wrong, giving all the good things to the critters. By the time he got around to creating man there was virtually nothing left so big bro' had to step in and launch an epic salvage operation.

Despite his titanic size he was a big softy at heart and when Pandora's curiosity had wreaked havoc on the world he simply gave his wife a big hug when everyone else wanted to give her a big slap.

See Prometheus and Pandora for more.
