Hephaestus was the greek god of artisans, technology, blacksmiths, and volcanoes. He was the son of the gods Hera and Zeus, and was constantly trying to get them to stop bickering, and as a result was know as a peasemaker. But, this also had a sacrafice for him, as in one fight where he took Hera's side, Zeus flung him from Mt. Olympus. He flew for a full day, and his impact crippled him.
Later on, when Aphrodite was brought to Olympus, Zeus gave her to Hephaestus for marriage, as he was said to be the "steadiest of the gods". He then made her a vail that, when worn, made her iresitable, which was a mistake as she was already iresistable enough.
