Camp Halfblood and the tale of Thomas
Fire-bringer, Titan of Forethought, and "friend" to demigods
Intermediate Titan (Greek Pantheon)
Home Plane: Unknown
“Percy, I’m the Titan of forethought. I know what’s going to happen.”
–Prometheus to Percy, in The Last Olympian
Being the Titan of foresight and crafty counsel, Prometheus knew early on that Zeus and his siblings would emerge victorious from the Titan War, and wisely chose to ally himself with the young Sky-Lord. After Kronos fell, Prometheus and his brother Epimetheus were tasked with creating new creatures to replace the ones which had been destroyed in the carnage of the Titan War. Epimetheus created all the beasts of the land and sky and air, while Prometheus spent all his time designing a naked ape which he called “Human”.
Feeling sorry for his creations, Prometheus stole fire from the gods, and gave it as a gift to humanity. For his theft, Prometheus was chained to a rock in chains of adamant, and every day an eagle, the symbol of Lord Zeus, would alight on his body and eat out his liver. Being immortal, Prometheus could not die, but the pain was unbearable. Prometheus endured for thousands of years in this manner, until he was freed by the hero Herakles. Ever since then, he’s had a soft spot in his heart for demigods.
Most recently, Prometheus was encountered in the Junkyard of Hephaestus, where he stole Pandora’s pithos after a small band of demigods killed the giant eagle which had been guarding the Junkyard.
