Prometheus means forethought. He created Man out of clay and stole fire from the gods for his benefit. As punishment, Zeus chained him to Mt. Caucasus and sent an eagle to eat his liver each day. Prometheus is the cautious, rational twin, the voice of reason. He is protective of his rash, emotional brother Epimetheus and dedicated to his mother's mission. He must remain shackled to a rock from Mt. Caucasus, due to Zeus's decree. He and his brother represent Gemini in my story.
Epimetheus means after–thought. He created the animals of the Earth and lavished the gifts of the gods on them, prompting Prometheus to steal fire for Man's gift. As Epimetheus's punishment for squandering the gifts, the gods created Pandora to be his bride and gave her a jar from which she unleashed all the evils on the world. The Epimetheus of my story is overly sensitive and he is more fond of his animal creations than he is of humans. Read more about both brothers here:
