Once upon a time, there lived a very smart titan called Prometheus and his brother Epimethius. The titans and the gods were fighting a war in between them. Prometheus knew the titans would lose, so he decided to join the gods in the war.
Oh brother! Fine! We will fight the war alongside the gods.
Brother! You know us titans won't defeat the gods. We need to fight alongside them. That way we will win the war!
After the war, Zeus wanted to thank the two brothers for helping the gods win the war, so he put them in charge of creating all living creatures. Zeus gave them gifts from the gods to give to the creatures.
As a thank-you, I, Zeus, declare that you will create all living creatures and give them qualities from all the gods.
I'll give you gifts from the gods to give the creatures.
So Prometheus and his brother Epimethius started to create the creatures. They created the creatures and gave them qualities from the gods. Some of them had wings, and others were able to swim. They were made out of clay.
Then, Prometheus began to make humans out of clay. He only made male humans, not woman. The problem was that his brother had wasted all of the god's gifts , so humans were ledt without any method to defend themselves.
When Prometheus saw his creatures shivering in the cold and scared of the animals they had created, he was sad, so he decided to go ask Zeus for another gift.
So Prometheus climbed Mount Olympus to reach the Olympian Temple.
