Prometheus and Epimetheus creating Man and Animalia
Epimethius and Prometheus created animal and man, respectively. Epimethius gave animals all the desirable traits. So in order to give man the advantage Prometheus made man walk upright and gave them fire.
Due to Prometheus favoring man over fellow gods Zeus cursed man with women, Pandora being one of them, who have malign intent as their nature, (not my words)
As another curse from the gods unto man. they gave the woman known as Pandora a box full of plagues and negativities. Even though she was forbade to open the box, she did. When she opened it all the terrible things spilled forth and brought despair upon the world. Even with all of those horrible things that came forth, there hope came along with it.
As punishment to Prometheus for favoring man, he chained him to a rock with unbreakable chains of adamantine. He was later punished to have a bird peck out his liver daily ,just for him to regenerate overnight due to his immortality.
Later, Zeus sent Hermes to get the information he was keeping secret. that information was which son of Zeus is destined to dethrone him and the other gods. Prometheus kept silent through his torture.
While Prometheus remained chained, Chiron, the immortal centaur, offered himself as sacrifice to Zeus in order to free Prometheus. Zeus accepted the offer and Prometheus was later freed.
