Our story begins with a man named Prometheus. Prometheus had stolen fire from another God and gave in to mortals. Zeus got very mad and decided to punish humanity for gaining the power of fire. In order to do so, he asked a God named Hephaestus create a woman that would punish them with plagues. Thus is where Pandora's story begins...
Under Zeus's command, Hephaestus builds a woman named Pandora that will plague humanity.
Build a beautiful woman that will trick mortals and plague them for stealing fire from the Gods!
gown to Goddesses and Gods, including, Athena, helped Hephaestus build Pandora. Athena gave her a beautiful silver gown to wear and taught her weaving. Other Gods and Goddesses gave Pandora to tell lies that seemed to be true and taught her to be deceitful.
Before Pandora was given to humanity Athena and the other Gods gave her a golden box and was told not to open it. Though the Gods knew curiousity would overcome her.
Do not open this box Pandora.
Pandora was then given to Prometheus's brother Epimetheus who gratefully accepted not listening to Prometheus warning him.
Do not let her stay with you! She cannot be truted!
