His wretchedness, and his resistance,
And his sad unallied existence:
To which his Spirit may oppose
Itself—and equal to all woes,
And a firm will, and a deep sense,
Which even in torture can descry
Its own concenter'd recompense,
Triumphant where it dares defy,
And making Death a Victory.

- Lord Byron "Prometheus"

History: A genius and a trickster, son of the Titan Iapetus by Clymene, one of the Oceanids. Brother to Menoetius, Atlas, and Epimetheus. Prometheus was a challenger to Zeus's omniscience and omnipotence.

Over the years he tricked Zeus many times, though the final staw came about once he gave both fire and knowledge to man. Prometheus, in what was meant to be eternal punishment, was chained to a rock in the Caucasus, where his liver was eaten daily by an eagle, only to be regenerated by night, due to his immortality. Years later, he was rescued by Hercules, who slayed the eagle and freed Prometheus from his chains. To this day Prometheus still resents the fact that he had to be rescued by him.

Once freed from his chains he was left to live among man, immortal but mostly helpless. He still has his intellect, but from torture came madness and occasionally that genius can become a dangerous thing.

Every twenty years or so he moves and starts a new life.

Personality: Prometheus, for the most part, is a good man. He's mischievous though, and under the wrong circumstances he can snap. Years of torture drove him mad, and while he can usually keep it under control, there have been occasions (sometimes decades long) where he has given into it completely.

When his grip on his sanity slips he is a very dangerous man.
