Webcomic Profile: Hephaestus


(a retelling of Greek mythology, with more than likely deviation from the original myths)

While other gods on Mt. Olympus are known to be beautiful and laid back, Hephaestus is more humble in appearance and works his hands to the bone. However, that is not to say that the god of crafting and fire doesn't have any interesting tales about himself...

Hm, I'm surprised that she actually wants to be with him, since the other encounters we've seen between them have barely been cordial to each other.

Come to Think of it, it's been a while since we've seen the two together for a while.

@Hyper Shadow (Chapter 0, Page 15): yes she is. How that affects their relationship is to be seen.
@8-bitSilverSnake (Chapter 0, Page 15): this is right too, as Cyprus was born from the essence of Ouranos that fell into the ocean. However, as Ouranos is formless in this version it is more raw Eros than his balls that fell into the sea (I take a note from George O'Connor's Olympians: Aprhodite Goddess of Love for this one. I recommend that read and his series)
@BurstThrough (Chapter 0, Page 15): thank you

Cool how you had the idea of making the symbol have a metamorphosis as well.

@Hyper Shadow:
No, in the Greek mythos, Aphrodite was created when the "seed of Uranus (Cronus's father and Zeus's grandfather) fell into the sea" after Cronus chopped his balls off. From the resulting "sea foam," Aphrodite came into being.

I do believe Cyprus is, in this case, the aforementioned "seed."

@Hyper Shadow (April Fools 2014): XD
@Sagat the Tiger (April Fools 2014): :<
@BustThrough (April Fools 2014): Artemis is the Goddess of Virginity, so she is immune to lust and cannot conceive children
@king_13 (April Fools 2014): Hephaestus pairings are incidentally the least incestuous of any Olympian pairing
@willy5000 (Chapter 4, Page 26): :<
@willy5000 (April Fools 2014): glad you enjoyed it enough to read that much of this comic.
