Prometheus and Epimetheus, two Titans, were spared imprisonment in Tartarus after the Titanomachy, the War between the Titans and the Olympians, because they showed promise and usefulness to the new rulers. This shows how in depth the stories were from this time and age. They seemed to have a detail for every single thing that they could think of by replacing the whats with the whos. Who did this? That thunder you hear I can't seem to explain it but I believe it is a man named Zeus.***Greekmythology.com. “Creation of Man by Prometheus.” Greek Mythology, www.greekmythology.com/Myths/The_Myths/Creation_of_Man_by_Prometheus/creation_of_man_by_prometheus.html.

Prometheus was the ancient Greek Titan-god of forethought and crafty counsel who was given the task of molding mankind out of clay. His attempts to better the lives of his creation brought him into conflict with Zeus. He suffered for giving humans god's fire thus he was bound to a rock where an eagle would eat his liver out everyday after it grows back. This part in mythology, I believe it could be understood as don't take what you got for granted as this man went limits to see his creations flourish and he seeks to protect us even in his bindings.
