EPIMETHEUS

Greek Creator God

Dumb God of Creature Creation

The son of IAPETUS and CLYMENE, he populated the world with newly invented animals, but made such a big deal about it that his brother PROMETHEUS became jealous. This lead to the theft of fire and a whole lot of trouble for the Gods.

They got their own back by offering EPIMETHEUS the first prototype woman, and, despite the warnings of PROMETHEUS, he was silly enough to accept. Her name was PANDORA.
