Storyboard Text

  • Born of Hera, Hephaestus was an ugly baby. Hera threw him off Olympus into the sea right when he was born.
  • Hephaestus was raised by the sea spirit Thetis. He developed a talent for building and crafting, along with keen intelligence. He made jewelry for Thetis.
  • Hephaestus grew up hating his parents. He wanted to get revenge on them for throwing him off a cliff to die.
  • Hephaestus's rage kept slowly building. As he spent 9 years underwater with Thetis, in his spare time he designed a special piece of furniture for Hera.
  • Hephaestus then rides to Olympus to give the gods custom-made thrones. Hera's throne then binds her with unbreakable ropes, and Hephaestus leaves Olympus.
  • What did you do?
  • Why, Father, I thought you'd approve. You'll have a much quieter wife now. In fact, she'll never get out of that chair again/
  • After a while, Dionysus convinces Hephaestus to let Hera free. Understandably, Zeus isn't too happy about his wife being tied up, so he drops Hephaestus off Mount Olympus again.
  • But she threw me out like a bad spark plug.
  • You need to go back to Olympus with me right now and let Hera go.
