Prometheus


Though he was born of the Titan Iapetus by Clymene or Themis, Prometheus foresaw the defeat of the Titans by the Olympian Gods so he allied himself with Zeus. Yet Prometheus eventually angered Zeus by stealing fire and bringing it to mankind.

According to some versions of the story, Prometheus was eventually freed by Hercules.
