In Greek mythology he was the god of fire and forging, the husband of the unfaithful Aphrodite. It is said that when he was born Hera, his mother, was so displeased with his physical deformities that she hurled him off the top of Mount Olympus.

I drew the sketch around the same time I drew "contemplation" so the poses look pretty similar. eh.
